On his penultimate trip before Election Day, Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden accused President Donald Trump of fearing losing one of the Midwest’s most important areas he barely won ago. is four years old.
“President Trump is terrified of what’s going to happen in Pennsylvania,” Biden said in Philadelphia Sunday afternoon, adding that when voters have a say in the general election, “he doesn’t stand a chance.”
“The American people will not be silenced,” he added. “Over 90 million people have already voted. They have had enough.
The event was billed as a “Souls to the Polls” engagement effort, and Biden campaign officials had the experience of wooing religious communities. The Daily Beast reported in September that they were planning new ways to reach religious voters during the pandemic, arguing that the virtual events allowed for broader national engagement while also taking social distancing.
Appearing in person, the former vice president’s speech was symbolic of the era of the modern coronavirus campaign: individuals sat in their cars and honked their horns to show their enthusiasm for his closing message, this time adjusted for an ostensibly pious crowd.
“Thank you for your commitment to the greater commandment ‘to love our neighbors as ourselves’,” said Biden, wearing a black windbreaker.
Pennsylvania is an important swing state for candidates from both parties. Biden has two stops in the city lined up on Sunday, with more to come statewide on Monday, including Pittsburgh. Many of his best substitutes will be scattered across other parts of the state.
Aggregates from various poll sources show Biden has a multi-point lead over Trump ahead of Tuesday’s election. A New York Times / Siena A poll taken between Oct. 27 and Oct. 31 shows that the former vice president leads the current president by 6 points among likely voters, gaining 49% and 43% respectively, with a margin of error of 3%.
As usual with his events, Biden has criticized Trump’s stint in the White House and called out some of Trump’s decisions he finds particularly egregious and personally offensive.
“It’s almost criminal the way he handled it,” he said of the president’s response to COVID-19.
