Last Friday on CNN, Alyson Camerota said the Democrats are worried about the Republican voter turnout in Florida, especially in Miami-Dade county. She noted how Hillary Clinton won Miami-Dade county in 2016 but still lost the overall state. Now, in the 2020 presidential elections, it seems that the Democrats’ lead is shrinking even more.
Frederica Wilson serves in Florida’s 24th congressional district, and she told Politico, “I screamed. Hollered. I called. I lobbied from the top to the bottom.” She was explaining the conversations she had with Biden’s campaign.
“We’ve got to stop the bleeding,” Democrats Marc Caputo and Matt Dixon said.
During another interview on CNN, Michigan Democratic representative Debbie Dingellsaid, “Yesterday, I had some of the autoworkers, who I thought were going to go back to Joe Biden, were very clear with me…they’re voting for President Trump.”
She also later added, “Focus on making sure that we’re talking to White union workers… I don’t believe any of the polls, I don’t think anybody is up tremendously, I think it’s competitive.”
The Democrat’s lead over the Republicans in Michigan is clearly shrinking, and it appears that it could go President Trump’s way.
During a segment on Fox News, host Martha MacCallum asked undecided voters for their thought about the upcoming election.
One undecided voter from Michigan names Jerry blasted former Vice President and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden for not being present on the campaign trail.
“I want to know what he stands for. I want to know what his platform is,” Jerry said. “I want to know what, day to day what he’s doing. I see President Trump out there jumping around to four or five states and we see Joe… well we don’t see Joe. Where’s Joe? That’s what we want to know.”
“If we don’t see him, how do we really know what he is really standing for?” he asked. “The other thing that bothers me is when they do show Joe it’s 30, 40 people. I see our president and there is 4 or 5 thousand. I’m encouraged by that.”
After that, MacCallum asked Jerry who he thought would win the state of Michigan.
“What is your feel on what’s going on there on the ground. As far as you can tell, which way do you think Michigan is leaning?” MacCallum asked.
“Well with my friends and family, I would say we are leaning very heavily to Donald Trump. The people in my industry all want to keep their jobs. They’re afraid of what another shutdown would bring to the state of Michigan. For my boss who worked his hardest to keep us busy, but another shutdown could be devastating to my industry and to the businesses that we support.”
“Interesting,” MacCallum replied. “You were on the fence when we first met but you are planning to vote for Trump now, is that correct?”
“100 percent, Martha,” Jerry replied.
