Joe Biden Suffers Polling Disaster Against Donald Trump: '5 Alarm Fire'

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T



Joe Biden is behind former President Donald Trump  in seven 2024 swing states, with immigration the hot topic issue affecting the president's reelection hopes, according to a poll.



A Bloomberg/Morning Consult survey found that Biden is between three and 10 points behind the Republican front-runner in November's race in Arizona (47-43 percent), Georgia (49-41), Michigan (47-42), Nevada (48-40), North Carolina (49-39), Pennsylvania (48-45) and Wisconsin (49-44).

In total, Trump leads Biden across all states on average by 48-42 in the poll, which suggests Biden's hopes of winning the next election are looking precarious.

Alyssa Farah Griffin, the former Trump White House communications director and a   CNN   commentator, said the results show "eye-popping numbers" for Trump in battleground states.

"This should be a 5 alarm fire for the Biden campaign," Griffin posted on X, formerly  Twitter .

When the results are broken down further, nearly two-thirds (61 percent) of swing-state voters said Biden is at least somewhat responsible for the increase in migrants crossing the U.S.-Mexico border, more than the 38 percent who said   Republicans   in   Congress   are responsible, or the 30 percent who said so about the Trump administration.

More voters in the swing states also said they Trust Trump to better handle illegal immigration than Biden, (52 to 30 percent), an increase from 5-point difference since the December poll.

The poll also shows that in every swing state except Michigan, a majority of voters said they've seen more immigrants over the last few years of the Biden administration.

However, the poll also suggests that Trump's multiple legal issues continue to loom over his latest White House bid.

According to the survey, more than half (53 percent) of voters in the seven key states said they would not vote for Trump if he is a convicted criminal by November's election, with 55 percent saying they would not if he is sentenced to prison.

Trump has pleaded not guilty to a total of 97 felonies across four federal and state investigations, with a jury potentially deciding his fate in four trials before November's election.

Trump has long denied all wrongdoing, and accuses each of the investigations into him as being politically motivated "witch hunts" which aim to stop him winning the next election.

The   Bloomberg   News/Morning Consult poll surveyed 4,956 registered voters in seven swing states. The surveys were conducted online from January 16 to 22.

Losing all seven swing states might be what finally gets Biden's handlers worried enough to start doing something on the border.  It's not going to get better over the summer/fall.

I know this is too complicated for a meme,  but even if that were true, (it’s not) Biden already has all the authority he needs to take action, and people who don’t get their news from memes understand that,

Maybe the House GOP doesn't grasp immigration?

House Republicans in recent weeks have blown up an immigration deal negotiated by their own party in the Senate and urged President Biden to adopt border measures that courts have found illegal. A cynic might say this is all theater - that Republicans (led by former president Donald Trump) want to keep immigration problems going through the election.
But did anyone consider a simpler explanation - that Republicans have no clue how our immigration system works?
Republican lawmakers have been holding up aid for Ukraine and Israel for months while seeking concessions on unrelated immigration measures. Yet after Democrats finally cried uncle, House Republicans said oh, just kidding. They don’t want this deal after all!

House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) and others now claim Biden doesn’t need new legislation to crack down on the border. Instead, they allege Biden can use his existing authority to reduce immigration by reviving all the executive actions that Trump had put into place.

“If [Biden] wants our conference to view him as a good faith negotiator, he can start with the stroke of a pen,” Johnson said.
There are a few problems with this claim. First, Biden has already issued more than 500 immigration-related executive actions, more than Trump announced over four years, according to the Migration Policy Institute. Biden has arguably exhausted the extent of his presidential authority, and so far his measures haven’t stemmed the tide of border crossings.
Second, if Biden hasn’t revived Trump’s specific policies - as Republicans urge him to do - that’s largely because so many Trump policies were found to be illegal.

Of the 35 major Trump-era immigration agency actions that faced legal challenges, 33 (94 percent) did not survive litigation - that is, either the court ruled against the relevant agency or the agency withdrew the action after being sued. These numbers are from the New York University Institute for Policy Integrity’s regulatory challenge database.
Even when Republican-appointed judges presided over such cases, Trump immigration actions were unsuccessful 90 percent of the time.

To be fair, one specific Trump-era program that Johnson wants to revive, informally known as “Remain in Mexico,” is the subject of legal cases that are still working their way through the courts. But any final court decision on this policy might not matter much.

Why? It’s unclear whether this program ever effectively deterred unlawful border crossings (though it did expose desperate migrants to rape, kidnapping, torture and other dangers). More important, the Mexican government has said it would not cooperate if the United States were to reboot the program, regardless of what U.S. courts decide.
Johnson has also demanded that Biden begin “renewing construction of the border wall.” On this policy, Biden’s obstacle isn’t executive authority exactly. It’s insufficient funding, says Aaron Reichlin-Melnick, policy director at the American Immigration Council.

Alas, House Republicans appear unlikely to fund it.

How do we know? Because last year, the Republican-controlled House passed a different (much more draconian) immigration bill, known as H.R. 2. This was basically a messaging bill, though lately Johnson has said it’s the only immigration-related legislation his chamber would consider. That bill would require Biden to restart wall construction, as set down in the fiscal 2019 appropriations bill, but it would not give any new funds that would be necessary to build the wall, Reichlin-Melnick says.
Similarly, Johnson has demanded that Biden end “catch and release,” which would mean detaining anyone waiting for their asylum claim to be heard in court. But there’s nowhere near enough funding under current law to provide that number of detention beds. Unsurprisingly, H.R. 2 provides zero new money for this objective, either.

In other words, the policies that House Republicans claim Biden can adopt “with the stroke of a pen” are outside his pen’s reach - unless Congress passes the bipartisan legislation that these Republicans refuse to consider.

Maybe Johnson and his GOP colleagues claim Biden can do things without lawmakers’ help because they want Biden to look feckless. Maybe they grew so accustomed to Trump’s lawlessness that they figure Biden should be willing to cross a line now and then, too.

But again, there’s a reasonably strong case that the problem here is incompetence.

After all, this week House Republicans unveiled articles of impeachment against Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas for his alleged failures on immigration. Unfortunately, these articles complain about measures taken by a completely different government agency - the State Department - which Mayorkas does not control.
Oops. Who can tell these Cabinet secretaries apart, anyway?

In Republicans’ defense, our immigration system is confusing. Lots of people don’t get it. Still, one would hope that politicians paid to understand these things - and who have made immigration a centerpiece of their 2024 campaign - might try a bit harder.

Brandon caused this crisis; and now is trying to leverage into money for his family's bankroll in Ukraine.

Brandon has all the power and money he needs to secure the border and enforce our immigration laws as written.

Instead he is suing border states to try and keep them from doing the job he refuses to.

I hope one day people will be finally ready to admit that Biden hasn't done shit about immigration to improve things, has largely ignored immigration and the border for 3 long years as hundreds of thousands stream across the border, and is only saying he is willing to work now on it because some sanctuary Dems keep crying and his polling numbers suck on it and he only wants to get reelected.

You think Brandon didn't cause the border crisis and crush of illegal immigrants entering this country?

As the video shows the illegals are simply following Brandon's instructions.

As for Brandon being a career criminal traitor. If he wasn't Wray, Garland, and Weiss wouldn't be so damn desperate to slow walk their investigations; and try to stall Republican House investigations. Garland went so far as to violate US law by appointing Weiss as special prosecutor.

§ 600.3 Qualifications of the Special Counsel.

( a ) An individual named as Special Counsel shall be a lawyer with a reputation for integrity and impartial decisionmaking, and with appropriate experience to ensure both that the investigation will be conducted ably, expeditiously and thoroughly, and that investigative and prosecutorial decisions will be supported by an informed understanding of the criminal law and Department of Justice policies. The Special Counsel shall be selected from outside the United States Government. Special Counsels shall agree that their responsibilities as Special Counsel shall take first precedence in their professional lives, and that it may be necessary to devote their full time to the investigation, depending on its complexity and the stage of the investigation.

Weiss is not outside of the US Government. He is the corrupt DA that tried to give Hunter a sweetheart plea deal while allowing the most serious of charges statute of limitations to run out. 

Brandon still hasn't given a reasonable explanation why he allowed a Chinese spy balloon to traverse the US recording information on our military bases. He did lie by claiming flying jets under and around the balloon disrupted it's information gathering.

The   Chinese spy balloon   that flew across the U.S. was able to gather intelligence from several sensitive American military sites, despite the Biden administration’s efforts to block it from doing so, according to two current senior U.S. officials and one former senior administration official.

China was able to control the balloon so it could make multiple passes over some of the sites (at times flying figure-eight formations) and transmit the information it collected back to Beijing in real time, the three officials said. The intelligence China collected was mostly from electronic signals, which can be picked up from weapons systems or include communications from base personnel, rather than images, the officials said.

The three officials said   China   could have gathered much more intelligence from sensitive sites if not for the administration’s efforts to move around potential targets and obscure the balloon’s ability to pick up their electronic signals by stopping them from broadcasting or emitting signals.

Also, I don't remember Democrats/leftists ever waiting for proof when charging Trump. They either manufactured the BS themselves (Hillary campaign paying for the fake Steele Dossier and then using their contacts in government to get it into the hands of the FBI/DOJ.); conducting investigations in the House barring Republicans from attending or asking questions to their hand picked witnesses (first Trump impeachment); just flat out ignoring impeachment rules (second Trump impeachment); or coaching hand picked witnesses behind closed doors to give scripted responses to preset questions for media consumption (Jan 6th committee). 

At least Republicans in the House are holding open investigations. They have come up with more than enough evidence to prove that Hunter received money from foreign entities for access to his father. That he and his company funneled money to his father and family members (which is illegal) that was paid for said influence. That Hunter and Brandon's brother received money from Ukraine, Russia, China, and Middle Eastern countries. While offering nothing material for payment- other than access to Brandon.

Instead of the usual denial, why don't you educate yourself on H.R.2 which was passed by the House and is sitting in the Senate where they have done nothing with it.  The House has passed a bill on the border and immigration which the Democratic majority Senate is refusing to take up. Can you determine why Schumer has not yet done anything with this bill?

Trying to pass the blame onto Republicans for Joe Biden's clear border failures is a losing proposition to those interested in facts.

And one would have to be extremely naive or willfully blind to facts to see this whole thing as anything other than a desperate election-year attempt by Biden to claim he finally (after 3 years of completely ignoring the problem) "DID SOMETHING!"
