“AN ABSOLUTE DISASTER”: CNN Spells Out New York Times Poll Showing President Trump Dominating Biden in Swing States

Watch the clip here.


HENRY ENTEN: Look, the Sunbelt battleground states—frankly, for the Joe Biden campaign—these numbers are an ABSOLUTE DISASTER. The smallest lead is in Arizona for Donald Trump. He's +6. Look at this: +9 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.




KATE BOLDUAN: When you're looking into the numbers, why do you think Biden is doing better in the Great Lakes and Trump is doing so much better in the Sunbelt?


HENRY ENTEN: Yeah, the Trump coalition is changing. That's basically what's cooking here. This is at least one of the big reasons why. So, this is among likely voters in all these battleground states we just spoke about. Back in 2020, 84% of the Trump coalition was white. Look where it is now. It's 78%. The non-white portion of the Trump coalition was 13% in 2020. Look at this now. It's 19%. So, the Trump coalition is becoming more diverse, and of course, those Sunbelt battleground states are more diverse than the Great Lake battleground states.
