Do Some Montanans Regret Their Vote? Poll Says Trump Wins in 2024
2024 seems like a long time from now.
However, with the end of 2021 just around the corner, soon we will start seeing political ads on TV, Radio, and online. People will argue on Social Media with life long friends deleting each other on Facebook, etc.
Yep, before we know it, it will be Presidential Primary Election Season.
A recent article in Newsweek states that some of the folks that voted for President Biden might be having buyers remorse. In fact, according to a new national Emerson College Poll, if Joe Biden and Donald Trump were to both run in 2024, Trump would win 47% to 46%.
So what about here in Montana? In the General Election of 2020, then President Trump was the clear-cut winner among Montanans receiving almost 100 thousand more votes than Joe Biden.
While Montana is typically a "Red State", some of the more urban areas tend to vote liberal, at least in the most recent election.
In fact, looking at the election of 2020, in Gallatin County 51% of the votes went to the Biden/Harris ticket, while 44% went to Trump/Pence. In Missoula County Biden/Harris pulled in 60% of the vote, while Trump/Pence received 36%. In Yellowstone County Trump/Pence brought in 60% while the current President received 36%.
Gas in Montana is well over 3 bucks a gallon and while that doesn't have a whole lot to do with the President, people tend to think it does. Especially when we've seen a dramatic increase over the last several months.
The National Unemployment Rate is at 5.2% which is higher than the rate of 3.5% prior to the pandemic. The current Unemployment Rate here in Montana is looks to be right around 3.6%.
Throw in the fact that President Biden has taken some very strong measures regarding the Covid-19 vaccine and requiring that Americans receive it, including yesterdays announcement that it would be mandatory for businesses with over 100 employees.
Some folks might be starting to question their vote last November.
So, do you agree with the Newsweek article? If given the same options of 2020, knowing what you know now, would you still vote for the same person, or would you change your mind?
