Trump heads to Georgia, one of the new 2020 battleground states

Source: CBS News

President Trump will be visiting Georgia on Wednesday to talk about infrastructure, but like his recent trips to Arizona, Michigan and Wisconsin, this happens to be to a battleground state his reelection campaign is eager to keep in the "win" column in November.

The latest CBS News Battleground Tracker poll rates Georgia as a toss-up for the presidential election; currently, Biden leads Mr. Trump by two points. Georgia voters have not picked a Democrat to be president since 1992, but the gains Democrats have made in recent elections with key groups have turned it into a state to watch.

"Georgia looks like a toss-up because the president's support is strong among his current base, while Biden is performing better than past Democrats among groups such as women with college degrees, based on our Battleground Tracker model estimates," according to CBS News' Election and Surveys director Anthony Salvanto.

The polls do not yet reflect voter's attitudes toward the current news of the day, but Georgia has come into increased focus nationally because of issues including coronavirus, police reform and voting rights. Georgia was the first state to reopen since the virus essentially shut the country down, and its infection rates have shot up last week it set a single-day record for new cases in the state. And in June, the fatal police shooting of Rayshard Brooks spawned outrage about Atlanta Police Department's use-of-force policies.

The article says that the Biden campaign has not yet made any big ad buys in Georgia, I fear that is a mistake. Besides the presidential race there are two Senate seats up for grabs, and Kelly Loeffler is especially vulnerable.

6. People who like tracking Air Force One will be interested in knowing that

Trump is leaving Joint Base Andrews at 1:20 p.m. to go to Georgia.

Fri Jul 3, 2020: Air Force One sighting, for those of you who care.

Both planes went out tonight

Same thing happened for Tulsa. Here is how I have been tracking them:

Use the U option to eliminate most normal traffic.

Think they are each on the ground now. Should be able to track them after the event.

9. I'm hoping that the work Stacey Abrams has been doing in Georgia pays off.

It would be great to see the state elect a Democratic senator and president. I just worry about a repeat of the deliberate chaos of the primary.

15. I hope congress doesn't give him an infrastructure package to help him get reelected

we should not work with the fascists on anything until they agree to a massive stimulus package that goes to the people.

16. I am in Georgia. We are NOT a battleground state because............

Calling by pollsters is not voting. When Republican government in Georgia starts the voter suppression the polls are wrong.
I have seen it for years here.

Long lines, deleting registrations, changing or closing polls, broken voting machines in minority areas and photo ID's are their tools.
