The 2024 Presidential election is shaping up to be another nail-biter.
A handful of states will decide which candidate will be in the White House.
And Joe Biden is pacing the floor over this devastating report out of a crucial swing state.
Battleground states look closer than ever for 2024
Pennsylvania is one of the most important battleground states in the country heading into the 2024 election.
Former President Donald Trump carried the state in 2016, becoming the first Republican to win Pennsylvania since former President George H.W. Bush in 1988.
President Joe Biden, who was born in Scranton, Pennsylvania, squeaked out a narrow victory by just over 1 point in a hotly contested race in 2020, making it one of the closest states in the country.
Pennsylvania and its 19 electoral votes are once again going to be pivotal for both parties’ efforts to win back the White House in the 2024 election.
Democrats thought that they had the wind at their back in the Keystone State after Sen. John Fetterman (D-PA) won a surprising victory over Republican nominee Dr. Mehmet Oz in last year’s Midterm elections.
A Quinnipiac University poll found that the state would be a virtual dead heat if the 2024 election was held today, with Trump holding a slight lead.
The poll found that Trump had the support of 47% of registered voters in the state compared to 45% for Biden.
The former President is also leading President Biden with crucial Independent voters by a margin of 48% to 39%.
“Biden vs. Trump: same as it ever was, setting up another likely bare-knuckled brawl between the two candidates in Biden’s home state,” Quinnipiac University polling analyst Tim Malloy said.
Biden’s approval rating is deeply underwater with Pennsylvania voters as 41% approve of the job he’s done, while 55% disapprove.
It’s always the economy
The top issue for voters in the Keystone State, like most states nationally, is the economy.
Trump is edging out Biden in one of the most critical states in the next election despite facing numerous witch hunt indictments from Democrat prosecutors.
The same poll found that voters have soured on Senator Fetterman after sending him to the Senate less than one year ago – 39% of voters have a favorable opinion of him compared to 46% unfavorable.
Biden is deeply unpopular in Pennsylvania, especially with Independent voters.
He’s presiding over a dismal economy, and that’s the top concern for an electorate that could make or break his political fortunes.
As Bill Clinton’s top political advisor, James Carville, famously said, “It’s the economy, stupid.”
The economic woes Joe Biden inflicted on the country will leave him as the most vulnerable incumbent Democrat President since former President Jimmy Carter in 1980.
