Things are getting exciting in the State of Nevada!
The Rasmussen poll just reported Biden is leading Trump by just one point in the Stae of Nevada.
According to the poll, 48% of the votes went towards Trump and 49% of the votes went towards Biden.
Trump is trailing only by 1 point!
The last time the state of Nevada turned red was in 2004 when George W. Bush edged out John Kerry.
Biden 49% (+1)

Trump recently took shots at the Fox News polls and is on record saying the Rasmussen Poll has been accurate.
Fox News poll has Trump down by almost 11 points!
That definitely can’t be right.
I agree with President Trump, the Rasmussen poll seems more accurate.
NEW FOX NEWS POLLS:
Biden 51% Trump 44%
Biden 52% Trump 41%
Biden 50% Trump 45%

One of the worst polls in 2016 was the @FoxNews Poll. They were so ridiculously wrong. Fox said they were going to change pollsters, but they didn’t. They totally over sample Democrats to a point that a child could see what is going on. Rasmussen, which was accurate, at 52%.

The Daily Mail reported these details:
President Donald Trump on Friday attacked new Fox News polls that have him trailing Joe Biden in battlegrounds Nevada and Pennsylvania – as well as key Republican-tilting prize Ohio.
The president resumed his long-running feud with the network’s polling unit on Twitter. It called it ‘one of the worst polls in 2016.’
‘They were so ridiculously wrong. Fox said they were going to change pollsters, but they didn’t. They totally over sample Democrats to a point that a child could see what is going on.’
President Donald Trump attacked Fox News polls Friday after they showed him trailing in Pennsylvania, Nevada and Ohio
Then he tipped his hat to his favorite polling unit, Rasmussen.
‘Rasmussen, which was accurate, at 52%,’ the president wrote.
The latest Rasmussen has Trump trailing Democrat Joe Biden, who leads 49 to 48. ‘Democratic nominee Joe Biden is back in the lead, just barely,’ John Rasmussen’s polling firm wrote in its weekly memo.
Of greater concern to the Trump camp are national polls that have the president trailing are developments.
Biden only + 1 in Rasmussen Poll, but plus 11 in Fox Poll. ???? https://t.co/hCcsWVIxeb

This poll result isn’t so surprising.
When Trump took a visit to Nevada thousands of people lined up to see him.
Wow. This was the line to get into the Trump Rally in Minden, Nevada today.

Scott Rasmussen founder of the poll said Nevada will be a battleground state this year:
NBC 4 News reported more on his statements:
“A month ago I wouldn’t have included Nevada as a battleground state,” says Scott Rasmussen, political analyst and public opinion pollster. “If we’re watching Nevada closely on election night, that’s probably good news for President Trump.”
Democratic presidential nominees have won Nevada the last three elections, but margins of victory have gotten much slimmer. In 2008 Barack Obama won by 12%, in 2012 he won by 6.7%, and in 2016 Hillary Clinton won by 2.5%.
Rasmussen says the major question mark this election is whether democratic supporters will turn out to vote.
“If that “Get out the Vote” model is not effective because of the pandemic, I think a lot of the rural voters will get out to the polls no matter what,” says Rasmussen. “That could lead to a possible shift.”
Nevada has a total of six electoral votes.
In 2016 they all went to Clinton but this year I have a feeling Trump will Turn Nevada red.
Let’s wait and see!
