The statistic that has been quoted in the title of this piece might seem grim to some but in reality? It is some of the best news that the Trump campaign team could have received. The mainstream media may want everyone to think that Biden has the lead when it comes to the upcoming election right now but the stats tell another story. The American people are simply fed up with the violence that they are seeing on a daily basis.
Can you blame them? The economy is clearly not going to recover anytime soon so this is the least that Americans can ask for. Trump probably knows this, as well. He had pinned his hopes for re-election on a miraculous recovery that simply isn’t going to take place anytime soon. Trump has not been able to put a dent in this crisis but perhaps a crisis related to law and order is more suited to his skill set.
Only time will tell. The leftists are even pitching in to help him out, which is awfully nice of them. The leftist cities that pride themselves on being so progressive are the ones that are having the biggest problems with violence. Chicago, Portland, Seattle, you name the city and they are having major issues at the moment.
This is only going to make it easier for Trump to be re-elected. He’s not going to be able to tame the virus on his own but he can do something about the orgy of violence that is taking place. Federal agents are under siege. They are being treated like second class citizens and the liberals clearly have zero fear. Unmarked vans have been dispatched to the aforementioned cities but the violence continues.
The cities that we have listed are not the only locations where violence is taking place. We simply do not have time to list all of the cities where federal agents are being attacked. An Oakland courthouse was set on fire over the weekend. A police station was also vandalized and officers were shot with fireworks.
Seventy-seven percent of respondents say they are concerned that crime is rising in the nation’s cities, while 46 percent of respondents said they were concerned about rising crime in their own communities.
“At the same time they see an increase of violence and crime and are concerned that prosecutors are not prosecuting the crimes — they blame the protests and the high unemployment when asked what is responsible for the spike in violence,” said Harvard CAPS/Harris polling director Mark Penn. “They also single out social media for being used to coordinate violence and in their view not doing much to curb it.”
These events should favor the current president. Biden is about two weeks away from going full hippie and suggesting that we all live in communes because love is all you need. Trump’s the law and order guy, so this is a crisis that he is well equipped to handle. He’s not the one who is looking to align himself with the people who think that its a good idea to defund the police departments.
Voters are sitting on the fence right now are sure to give him a second look. How can they ignore what they are seeing on their television sets every day? Any time you turn the TV on, you see riots that threaten to tear apart the very fabric that holds this great country together. Surely, someone who can’t seem to decide between Biden and Trump will be swayed by the candidate who promises to fix this.
Crime is surging all over the country. Many Americans are starting to feel like they are not even safe in their own homes. Those who choose to defend themselves from the angry mobs are being treated like they are the ones who are breaking the law. Can you imagine how much worse it will get when Biden has the chance to start filling the cabinet with leftists who are also going to turn a blind eye to what is taking place?
Meanwhile, some believe that Trump’s aggression when it comes to Portland and other liberal cities is doing more to harm than help. Trump’s desire for online viral content may be his undoing. One thing is for sure: he is going to need to come up with a plan to handle the violence and/or the virus. He’s going to struggle to hold off Biden until he comes up with a real solution for these issues.
