Last Thursday, Rasmussen Reports released a new national poll that showed presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump leading President Joe Biden by eight points. According to the poll, Trump has secured the support of 49% of likely voters nationwide, while Biden has 41% voter support. 


In February, Rasmussen poll found Trump leading Biden by 6 points, 47% for Trump to 41% for Biden. 


Thursday's poll found that 8% of likely voters will vote for someone other than Trump or Biden, and only 3% are undecided.


Interestingly, Trump beats Biden 48 to 37 percent among Hispanics, while Biden’s support among black voters dropped to 66 percent. In 2020, 90% of black voters supported Biden. 

As we reported on March 27, 2024, Trump is leading Joe Biden in all credible national polls and his lead is greater than the margin of error.  If Biden falls behind Trump by 10 points or greater, it will be impossible for him to overtake Trump's lead to win the presidency in November.


The bad news for Biden from the latest Rasmussen poll is exascerbated by the fact that Trump raised $50.5 million on Saturday at a Florida fundraiser. This is the largest amount of campaign cash ever raised at a single fundraising event.


Saturday's $250,000-a-ticket bash was held at the Palm Beach home of billionaire Trump supporter John Paulson.


The $50.5 million raised by Paulson and his guests is almost double the $26 million raised for Joe Biden at a recent New York City fundraising event that featured the star-power of former Democrat presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton.

Barring divine intervention, it appears that Donald Trump is on track to win the 2024 presidential election.

We clearly see that the establishment donor groups of the GOP and aligned and are financially backing the former president. You can't raise this type of money at $250k per plate with average American donors.

Surging deaths from the COVID-19 pandemic defeated Donald Trump in 2020. Israel's genocide of innocent Palestinians in Gaza is defeating Joe Biden in 2024. Biden is too weak to stop this genocide.

Presidential Candidate Brandy Moore could defeat all these crooks. Without Unity and support a great historical moment will be unwritten.
