    Political protests and demonstrations used to be weekend affairs during which angry leftists shouted at empty government offices before shuffling home Sunday afternoon to gear up for the workweek. With 1 out of 4 workers having filed for unemployment and many more working from home, tens of millions of Americans have free time to march in the streets. Sporting events, movie theaters, retail stores and even houses of worship are closed due to the coronavirus lockdown.

Nineteen percent (19%) feel more safe now, while 26% say their feeling of personal safety is about the same. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

    Some polls now have Joe Biden running ahead of Donald Trump by 10 points and sweeping the battleground states of Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania. This vindicates the strategy Biden's advisers have adopted:

    Confine Joe to his basement, no press conferences. Trot him out to recite carefully scripted messages for the cameras. Then lead him back to his stall.

    Americans strongly reject the call by a leading Black Lives Matter activist to remove “white Jesus” from churches and elsewhere. His message resonates far stronger among black Americans than others.

    The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 69% of American Adults disagree with this statement: “All murals and stained glass windows of white Jesus and his European mother and their white friends should also come down. They are a gross form [of] white supremacy. Created as tools of oppression. Racist propaganda. They should all come down.” Just 13% agree with the statement by BLM activist Shaun King. Eighteen percent (18%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

  • The Electoral College: Trump’s Floodgates are Creaking By Kyle Kondik>
    (Recent News - June 25 2020 - 11:30 AM:)
    <>

    Florida, Pennsylvania shift toward Biden, but he’s still shy of the magic number 270 in our ratings.

    KEY POINTS FROM THIS ARTICLE

    — We are making two Electoral College rating changes this week.

    — Florida moves from Leans Republican to Toss-up, and Pennsylvania moves from Toss-up to Leans Democratic.

    — This means 268 electoral votes are rated as at least leaning to Joe Biden in our ratings; 204 are at least leaning to Donald Trump; and there are 66 electoral votes in the Toss-up category.

    — Biden is decently positioned, although his current lead may be inflated.
