Trump Gets Welcome Good News… From Detroit

Michigan has become a swing state that split their presidential selection in 2016 and 2020, largely based on the votes in Detroit.

The city could figure once again to be a major hinge in the election. During a focus group with Detroit metro voters recently, Joe Biden’s age was a significant problem with the participants.

And a reason Donald Trump led the current president with the group.

Age Continues to Be a Problem for Biden

The focus group held on Tuesday revealed that for swing voters in Metro Detroit, they aren’t sure at Biden’s age that he’s fit for the job.

Axios reported, “Voters have concerns about Biden’s age and fitness, but none who participated in the focus group are concerned he’s a threat to democracy.

“While seven of 14 voters said they would describe former President Trump as a threat to democracy, 10 out of 14 also said they would take the twice-impeached president back over voting for Biden again in 2024,” Axios noted.

Almost everyone in the group agreed that Biden is in mental decline, and this focus group occurred after the president’s angry rebuttal to special counsel Robert Hur’s report that he was a “sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory.”

They also seemed to care more about Biden’s age more than Trump’s legal problems.

The story continued:

Axios sat in on two Engagious/Sago online focus groups Tuesday night with 14 Michiganders who voted for Trump in 2016 and Biden in 2020.

Eight are independents and six are Republicans. Most are from cities across Metro Detroit and two are from Holland and Jackson.

While a focus group is not a statistically significant sample like a poll, the responses show how some voters feel about current events.

A potential felony conviction didn’t stop most in the focus group from saying they would vote for Trump again.

It was clear how Trump’s charges weren’t having the amount of negative impact Democrats might have been hoping for, but the Biden report was having a negative impact for Democrats.

“None said they were upset over special prosecutor Robert Hur’s decision not to bring charges following his investigation into Biden’s handling of classified documents, despite the report released last week that the president’s actions presented “serious risks to national security,” Axios observed.

“The president rejected accusations of memory problems during a press conference after the investigation was released last week,” the story noted.

The election is almost a year away. A lot can happen.

But Joe Biden’s not getting any younger or more virile.
