The 2020 elections are two months away and a lot can change between now and then.
But recent polls have President Trump cutting into Joe Biden’s lead and even pulling ahead in some key battleground states.
And now Joe Biden couldn’t believe these six swing state Democrats defected to Donald Trump.
Many astute political observers are saying this year’s elections could be the most important elections in decades.
Some even say the results of the 2020 elections could set the U.S. on a course similar to the 1860 election of Abraham Lincoln.
Already the nation is a powder keg.
Antifa and BLM terrorists freely roam many of America’s streets committing acts of arson, looting, and violent acts against both police and everyday Americans.
Probably no state has been hit harder by the violence and destruction than Minnesota, where it all started after the death of George Floyd in police custody.
So, it probably is no surprise that many Minnesotans are fed up and just plain scared by the continued, seemingly endless violence by rioters left free to destroy.
But it did come as a surprise when six Minnesota Democrat mayors just publicly endorsed the reelection of Donald Trump, just as he continues to rise in the polls in key battleground states like Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.
The six mayors from the Gopher State’s hard-hit Iron Range said in a recent letter that after “decades” of voting for Democrats, they now “formally endorse the re-election of President Donald J. Trump and Vice President Mike Pence.”
The shocking letter was signed by Democrat Mayors Larry Cuffe of Virginia, Chris Swanson of Two Harbors, John Champa of Chisholm, Robert Vlaisavljevich of Eveleth, Chuck Novak of Ely, and Andrea Zupancich of Babbitt.
The mayors stated that the national Democrat Party has been “moved so far to the left” by the socialist radicals and pandering politicians that it is now unrecognizable.
“It [the Democrat Party] can no longer claim to be advocates of the working class,” the mayors said in their letter. “The hard-working Minnesotans that built their lives and supported their families here on the Range have been abandoned by radical Democrats.”
“We didn’t choose to leave the Democratic Party, the party left us,” they said.
This is a major blow to the Biden campaign and could bode ill for his chances to defeat Trump. Minnesota is considered a bellwether state in that if Trump wins Minnesota, it will likely mean he wins reelection.
While losing Minnesota doesn’t necessarily mean Trump loses the election, his victory there would likely be the last nail in Biden’s electoral coffin.
This news comes right on the heels of new polls showing Trump pulling even or ahead of Biden in key states like Michigan, and even closing the gap in New York.
These polls also show Trump is picking up support among blacks and Hispanics.
One poll has Trump with almost 20% support among likely black voters.
While it’s still early and predicting the 2020 elections is almost impossible, the current trends are looking good for Trump’s reelection chances.
And the endorsement of six lifelong Minnesota Democrat mayors is a real sign of growing support among all voters for the President’s reelection.
