A new set of polls reveals that Donald Trump is leading President Biden in five out of six critical battleground states, as young and nonwhite voters grow increasingly dissatisfied with the current president.

The surveys, from the New York Times, Siena College and the Philadelphia Inquirer found that Trump is smoking Biden in Michigan, Arizona, Nevada, Georgia and Pennsylvania, while Biden is barely clinging to Wisconsin. The top grievances among disaffected voters are cost of living, immigration, and the war in Gaza, in what the NY Times characterizes as "widespread dissatisfaction with the state of the country and serious doubts about Mr. Biden's ability to deliver major improvements to American life."
Nearly 70 percent of voters say that the country's political and economic systems need major changes โ€” or even to be torn down entirely.

Only a sliver of Mr. Biden's supporters โ€” just 13 percent โ€” believe that the president would bring major changes in his second term, while even many of those who dislike Mr. Trump grudgingly acknowledge that he would shake up an unsatisfying status quo.


The economy and the cost of living, however, remain the most important issues for one-quarter of voters โ€” and a significant drag on Mr. Biden's prospects. More than half of voters still believe that the economy is "poor," down merely a single percentage point since November despite cooling inflation, an end to rate hikes and significant stock market gains. โ€” NY Times
And the media is freaking out:

In particular, Biden's impotence has "helped erode his standing among young, Black and Hispanic voters, who usually represent the foundation of any Democratic path to the presidency."

Young hispanics, for example, gave Biden more than 60% of their vote in 2020. Now, Trump and Biden are virtually tied among that demographic. Trump has also garnered over 20% of black votes according to the poll, the highest level for any Republican candidate since the Civil Rights Act was enacted in 1964.

Because of this, Trump's strength among young and nonwhite voters has "upended the electoral map."

"It is concerning to me when I keep seeing press come out of the White House where they keep saying the economy is good," according to 32-year-old Jacob Sprague of Reno, Nevada, who voted for Biden in 2020 but won't be doing so again. "That's really weird because I'm paying more on taxes and more on groceries and more on housing and more on fuel. So that doesn't feel good."

Even more hilarious is that nearly 20% of voters blame Biden more than Trump for the Supreme Court's 2022 decision to overturn Roe v. Wade (what?).

Trump is polling particularly well with voters who believe that political and economic systems need to be torn down - around 15% of registered voters, with whom Trump is leading by 32 points.
