Although President Donald Trump is ahead in some polls and tied with Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden in others, the media insists that Biden has the upper hand in terms of Americans’ voting intentions.
The broad election picture contradicts the media’s version, Townhall editor Matt Vespa noted on Sept. 24.
In particular, Vespa referred to media outlets that are not like the conservative Republicans, such as MSNBC. This media cited the tie in the state of Michigan, one of the most important electorally, and also the tie in the states of Iowa and Georgia.
The weekly Poll Watch polls confirm the data on which Vespa bases his comments.
“Of the four major Rust Belt states, -MN, WI, MI, PA-. Michigan is the most difficult for Trump to win,” Poll Watch tweeted.
“That he is in a dead heat in Michigan now is a good sign for him,” concluded Poll Watch.

In addition, Poll Watch pointed out the approval percentages for President Trump, who has sustained a 52% rating, surpassing by 4 percent obtained by Barack Obama on the same day, Sept. 24, for the 2012 elections.
Vespa also pointed out that the campaign carried out by President Trump has been very active, while Biden’s is considered practically invisible.
Another factoris the way voters will cast their ballots, most Republicans will vote in person, while Democrats prefer to vote by mail.
Sixty-five percent of Iowa Republican voters prefer to vote in person on Election Day, compared to 25 percent of Democrats, but among Independents 54 percent plan to do so in person as well, according to the Des Moines Register on Sept. 25.
Trump’s approval rating among African Americans is 19 percent, more than double that of 2016 when it reached 9 percent.
Support among white and Latino voters for President Trump remained stable at 55 and 37 percent, respectively.
With this positive data for President Trump, Vespa doubts very much that the view presented by the media, and in which Biden appears with higher percentages of voting intention, is true, according to his article in Townhall.
The media has been accused of falsifying the data, which seems to have been proven by a survey conducted by ABC-IPSOS, based on only 533 people, with no preference for likely or registered voters, and with a significant bias toward the Democratic Party.
“But the poll is almost less scientific than a Twitter survey, given who was polled and in what percentages and ratios,” said author and politician Raheem Kassam in a column published in The National Pulse.
Kassam revealed that the poll questioned 31 percent of Democrats and only 25 percent of Republicans.
