‘Oh My God’: CNN Forced to Report Incredible News on Trump

A renowned pollster expressed both admiration and concern that former President Donald Trump is polling so closely to President Joe Biden in a traditionally "reliable" Democratic state following his conviction related to ‘hush money.’

Frank Luntz commented on the polling numbers of Biden and Trump in Minnesota, a state that has consistently supported Democratic presidential candidates for many years.

Trump was defeated in Minnesota during both the 2016 and 2020 elections, with Biden currently leading Trump by 2.3% in a head-to-head race, according to the RealClearPolling average. Luntz, speaking on “CNN News Central,” noted that the close race in such a Democrat-leaning state is remarkable, emphasizing the importance of Trump polling strongly against Biden despite the recent felony conviction.

“To me, it’s not that Donald Trump is winning so big in Iowa. That’s not the story. It’s that he’s making it close in Minnesota. Minnesota is a reliable Democratic state. It votes Democrat in every presidential campaign. In poll after poll, I see Trump within two or three points in Minnesota. I don’t think the media understands exactly what’s going on right now,” Luntz said.

He added, “Yes, Trump dropped a few points after being found guilty on 34 felony counts. But remember this, that would have destroyed any candidate as recently as 10 years ago. And the fact that Donald Trump is still even with, or in some cases leading, Joe Biden after being found guilty of 34 felonies, oh my God, that is so significant.”

In March, Luntz highlighted Arizona and Nevada as key indicators for the upcoming election due to their large Latino populations, which could make them representative of national trends.

“The Latino vote, 20%, can be 20% of the electorate,” he said then. “To me, that’s the deciding vote, and if they switch in Arizona, in Nevada, I would expect it to be happening nationwide, so watching those two states is my indicator of what’s going to happen in 2024.”

CNN’s senior political data analyst appeared genuinely surprised during a Monday segment by the increasing support for Trump among black Americans.

Analyst Harry Enten, who has been monitoring Trump’s rising support in the black community, noted that it has now reached a historic level in the modern era for a Republican presidential candidate, suggesting that this voting bloc will be crucial in battleground states like Georgia and Wisconsin.

A New York Times/Siena College poll from May found that Trump has significantly narrowed the gap with Biden among black Americans in six battleground states, with Biden leading Trump 70% to 18%. Enten expressed astonishment on “CNN News Central” about Trump’s performance among black voters as a Republican candidate, highlighting Biden’s decreasing popularity within this demographic.

“I keep looking for this to change, to go back to a historical norm, and it, simply put, has not yet,” Enten told host John Berman to start the segment. “So this is the margin, or, Biden and Trump among black voters, compare where we were at this point in 2020, compare to where we are now.

“At this point, look at this. In 2020, Joe Biden was getting 86% of the African American vote. Look at where it is now. It’s 70%, that’s a 16-point drop, John,” he continued. “And more than that, it’s not just that Joe Biden is losing ground. It’s that Donald Trump is gaining ground. You go from 7%, single-digits at this point in 2020, to now 21%, and again, John, I keep looking for signs that this is going to go back to normal, and I don’t see it yet in the polling of anything right now.

“Look at black voters under the age of 50,” the data reporter continued. “Holy cow, folks, holy cow. Look at this. Joe Biden was up by 80 points among this group back at this point in 2020; look at where that margin has careened down. It’s now just, get this: 37 points. That lead has dropped by more than half.

“I’ve just never seen anything like this. I’m like speechless because you always look at history and you go, ‘okay, this is a historic moment.’ If this polling is anywhere near correct, we’re looking at a historical moment right now, where black voters under the age of 50, which have historically been such a big part of the democratic coalition, are leaving in droves,” he added.
