'An Absolute Disaster': CNN Panics After New Poll Shows Trump Dominating Biden In Battleground States

A new poll, the results of which were unveiled on Monday, has sent shockwaves through the Biden campaign and the mainstream media. The poll reveals a significant shift in Trump's favor, with his lead growing in the Sun Belt and him outperforming President Biden in multiple swing states in the Rust Belt. This development, described by a CNN host as "an absolute disaster," could potentially pave the way for Trump's return to the White House in November, marking a reversal of the decline America has experienced under Joe Biden.

According to the NYT/Siena College poll, Trump had a double-digit lead in Nevada, defeating Biden by 13 points if the election were held today. The other states in the Sun Belt are just as bad for the Biden campaign, with Trump having a dominant lead of nine in Georgia and six in Arizona. In the Rust Belt, a part of the country that Democrats need to retain the presidency, Trump is still beating Biden in a one-on-one matchup, but within the poll's margin of error. The survey found that Trump beat Biden by three points in Pennsylvania and one point in Wisconsin, while Biden had a narrow lead of one percent in Michigan.

"Frankly, for the Joe Biden campaign, these numbers are an absolute disaster," a CNN host said. "The smallest lead is in Arizona for Donald Trump. He's up six. Look at this: nine in Georgia, 13 in Nevada. My goodness, gracious. My God. That is a huge lead. No Democrat has lost that state since John Kerry lost it back in 2004. How about these Great Lake battleground states." 

The CNN host then went on to explain that the poll's findings in the Great Lakes battleground states give some hope for Biden's failing campaign. The CNN analyst then explained that the reason behind Trump's dominant lead in the south of the country is the changing demographics of his winning coalition, which has shifted some non-white voters into his base of support in recent years.

According to the poll, non-white swing state voters shifted six points from 2020 to 2024, with Trump gaining support from 13 percent to 19 percent among that demographic. "The Trump coalition is becoming more diverse, and of course, those Sun Belt battleground states are more diverse than the Great Lakes battleground states," the CNN analyst said, adding that Trump still has some work to do to ensure that he will win in November.

If Trump continues to hold a decisive lead in the Sun Belt states ahead of the general election, he would be able to get 268 electoral votes, just two electoral votes short of winning the White House. In order to come out on top, the presumed GOP nominee would have to flip one of the Rust Belt states to win the White House.
