Poll: Donald Trump would beat Joe Biden in hypothetical 2024 presidential race

Published

on

Democrat Joe Biden won the November 2020 presidential elections with 51% of the vote to Donald Trump’s 47%. However, the current president’s approval rating has been taking a hit in the wake of the botched United States and North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) withdrawal from Afghanistan and ensuing evacuation effort.

If former president Donald Trump and current POTUS Joe Biden were to be granted a hypothetical re-run of last year’s election, the Republican politician would beat his Democratic opponent, claims a new poll.

survey by Emerson College released on Friday shows that 47% of voters would favor Trump as opposed to 46% who said that they would back Biden, 6% of those surveyed would opt for another candidate.

The national poll of 1,200 registered voters, conducted between August 30-September 1, goes on to reveal that 39% of Democrats would prefer some other party candidate to run in 2024.

The GOP are still rallying around Trump, the Emerson survey says, as 67% of the Republicans would support his GOP nomination again.

“This data suggests that Republicans want either Trump or a Trumpian candidate to be their nominee, or half of them may split from the party,” said Spencer Kimball, Director of Emerson College Polling, in a statement.

Joe Biden’s ratings, meanwhile, have been plummeting. The president is under fire for the hasty withdrawal of American forces from Afghanistan that opened the way for the Taliban to retake power with precious little resistance in the south Asian country.

The polling average from RealClearPolitics finds Biden’s job approval has tanked by more than 4%, in his worst rating yet. More than 49% of those polled now disapprove of Biden’s performance in office, whereas only 45% are in favor.

As for Trump, he has not definitively indicated he will run in 2024, but has dropped numerous hints, sparking speculation.

Jason Miller, a former senior adviser to Trump, said on Cheddar News on Thursday that it’s “pretty clear” the former president will run again in 2024, estimating the chances being somewhere between “99-100%.”

“I had a good conversation with him last night, and I’m gonna go see him in another couple days here… He has not said the magical words to me, but if you talk to him for a few minutes, it’s pretty clear that he’s running,” Miller added.

New January 6 footage shows police opening doors of U.S. Capitol to peaceful protesters, not ‘rioters’ as previously reported by media

Published

on

Newly released January 6 footage shows police letting peaceful pro-Trump supporters enter the United States Capitol without incident, directly contradicting government and media allegations of how law enforcement was overwhelmed by an unruly mob.

The footage, that the Department of Justice (DOJ) fought to keep hidden, captured activity by two security cameras – that face opposite directions – in a small hallway on the upper west side terrace from 2:25 pm to around 3:00 pm.

The full two 40 minute videos were originally posted on BuzzFeed Monday morning.

This footage is just a small fragment of the 14,000 hours of surveillance that Joe Biden’s DOJ are fighting to keep hidden, Julie Kelly of American Greatness reports:

The footage, a slice of the 14,000 hours of surveillance video that the Justice Department and Capitol Police want kept under strict protective orders, clearly contradicts many of the government’s allegations about what happened on January 6. Hundreds of January 6 defendants have been charged with trespassing or “parading” in the Capitol when this video clearly proves law enforcement held open doors and did not stop protesters from coming inside.

This story is developing. More new security footage will be added here at the Miami Standard.

FBI in Haiti after 16 American missionaries visiting an orphanage kidnapped by gang

Published

The abduction of 16 American missionaries and one Canadian in Haiti by a notorious armed gang known for extorting businesses and ransoming kidnapped victims catapulted the Caribbean nation’s insecurity crisis into the global spotlight Sunday as FBI agents arrived in Port-au-Prince to help with negotiations to liberate the hostages.

FBI agents arrived on an aircraft chartered by the U.S. government hours after reports confirmed that 17 Christian missionaries including five children had been taken hostage Saturday in the area of La Tremblay in Ganthier, just east of the capital.

A group of American missionaries have been kidnapped in Haiti, allegedly by the same gang that kidnapped a group of Catholic clergy in April of this year.

A State Department official, confirming the kidnappings, said the welfare and safety of U.S. citizens abroad is one of the highest priorities of the Department of State.

“We have been in regular contact with senior Haitian authorities and will continue to work with them and interagency partners,” the official added.

‘Money plays a big part’: Audio reveals Miami Beach mayor, developers planning re-do of Ocean Drive

Published

on

MIAMI BEACH, Fla.  Miami Beach voters are being asked to stop alcohol sales at 2 a.m. instead of 5 a.m.

Proponents of the measure backed by Mayor Dan Gelber link the three-hour rollback with stopping crime and chaos on South Beach.

But, in a private Zoom call last month, Gelber met with developers to court their support for a wholesale re-do of Ocean Drive and the entertainment district.

Spearheading the meeting and solicitations for money was former Miami Beach mayor and businessman Philip Levine.
