According to a recent Des Moines Register/Mediacom Iowa Poll, President Trump has secured a significant lead over his rival, Joe Biden.
According to Just the News:
The poll of likely voters taken Oct. 26-29 found 48% supporting President Trump compared to 41% backing Biden, a lead that falls well outside of the poll’s plus or minus 3.4% margin of error. Respondents answered the question: “If the general election were held today, for whom would you vote?”
The president gained slightly while Biden lost significant ground since the September poll that had the two contenders neck and neck at 47% each in the state.
President Trump won Iowa in 2016 after President Barack Obama won it in 2008 and 2012. President George W. Bush won the state in 2004 following a Democratic winning steak from 1988 to 2000.
Everywhere Trump goes you see crowds that could fill stadiums, yet the main stream media will have you believe that he is behind in almost every poll.
BIDEN: 56 Percent of Americans “Probably Shouldn’t” Vote for Me
Vice President Joe Biden said that Americans who say they are better off now, under President Trump than they were four years ago under the Obama Administration, shouldn’t vote for him.
The hilarious comment was made when he was asked his opinion of a recent survey that found that 56 percent of Americans said they were better off now than four years ago.
Biden was asked, “Gallup reported last week 56 percent of Americans said they were better off today than they were 4 years ago, [that] would have been under the Obama-Biden administration. So why should people who feel they are better off today under the Trump administration vote for you?”
Biden replied, Well, if they think that, they probably shouldn’t.”
He then incorrectly stated the percentage that was just referenced to him and said, “They think — 54 percent of the American people believe they’re better off economically today than they were under our administration? Well, their memory is not very good, quite frankly.”

Last week we reported on the news of the Gallup poll which found just 32 percent of Americans said they were worse off now than under the Obama Administration.
These numbers are particularly astounding considering the United States is in the middle of a pandemic.
This wasn’t Biden’s only gaffe this week. In a surprising twist, he actually took questions from reporters yesterday (only briefly, of course) and forgot Sen. Mitt Romney’s name.
When asked about judge Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination to the Supreme Court and whether or not her faith should be factored into consideration, Biden said, “You may remember, I got in trouble when we were running against the senator who was a Mormon, the governor, OK? And I took him on. No one’s faith should be questioned.”

Later on that day during his speech, Biden also said he was running for the U.S. Senate: “You know, we have to come together. That’s why I’m running. I’m running as a proud Democrat for the Senate,” he said. “When I ran as a proud Democrat for vice president, and I’m running as a proud Democrat for president. But I promise you this, I will govern as an American president.”

BIDEN: We Can Stay Home During COVID Because “Some Black Woman” Stacked the Grocery Shelf
President Trump has proven he is the embodiment of a true leader after contracting the coronavirus while performing the duties of Commander in Chief, instead of keeping himself isolated in a bubble in the White House.
Vice President Joe Biden, on the other hand, has locked himself in his basement for months, leaving for mostly brief media appearances where he rarely takes questions from the press.
In a now-viral video clip, Biden credited people’s ability to stay sequestered in their homes during the COVID-19 pandemic because “some black woman was able to stack the grocery shelf.”
Why would Twitter delete a video that was nothing more than quoting a presidential candidate, @jack?

Fox News reported the full version of Biden’s comments:
“And they say, ‘Well, why in the hell would you say that Biden? You just talked about all these difficulties.’ Well, I’ll tell you why. Because the American public, the blinders have been taken off,” Biden told the roundtable attendees. “They’ve all of a sudden seen a hell of a lot clearer. They’re saying, ‘Jeeze, the reason I was able to stay sequestered in my home is because some Black woman was able to stack the grocery shelf. Or a young Hispanic is out there, these dreamers are out there, 60,000 of them acting as first responders and nurses and docs.’ Or all of a sudden people are realizing, ‘My Lord, these people have done so much. Not just Black, White, across the board, have done so much for me. We can do this. We can get things done.’ And I think they’re ready.”
Biden was quickly roasted on Twitter for his comments, with former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee pointing out the hypocrisy of the media for ignoring his comments. “He didn’t really say that, did he?” he wrote. “Yes, he did. If @realDonaldTrump said that he’d be called racist. But @POTUS didn’t say it. Joe did & the media won’t say a word about it.”

Trump supporters Diamond and Silk wrote, “Jim Crow Joe Biden is a Bigot and a Racist! Black women are not the only ones stocking shelves amid COVID.”
