Biden forced to confront cracks in 'blue wall' as campaign season heats up

There are certain parts of the United States that are considered reliably and staunchly aligned with the Democratic Party, regardless of the candidates running in a given election cycle.

However, as Breitbart notes, President Joe Biden has been confronted by some serious cracks in the so-called “blue wall,” attributable to former President Donald Trump's ongoing comeback and renewed popularity.

Biden facing surprise headwinds

The “blue wall” on which Democrats will rely in order to deliver the presidential election to their candidate in what is expected to be a very close race consists of the three key swing states of Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania.

If Biden fails to secure these states, he will almost certainly fall to Trump come November.

This is all because Trump is currently pulling strong numbers in the states of Nevada, Georgia, North Carolina, and Arizona, much to the chagrin of the Biden campaign.

According to Politico senior campaign and elections editor Steven Shepard, the scenario playing out at the moment is unmistakable, and it does not represent great news for the incumbent.

“There's a clear divide between the Blue Wall states, where the polling is close, and the Sun Belt states, where it isn't,” Shepard noted.

Targeting the wall

An Emerson College poll released last week indicated that for the first time in the current contests, Trump took a small lead in all three Blue Wall states, whereas he previously only led in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

Democrat insider Doug Sosnik has stated that the presidency this time around will be determined by voters in Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Arizona, Nevada, Georgia, and North Dakota.

If Trump pulls out a victory in either of the aforementioned three “Blue Wall” states, Biden stands little chance of accumulating the necessary Electoral College tally.

As such, it is no surprise that Trump is using the previous little time in which he is not required to sit in a Manhattan courtroom to hold rallies in those key states, appearing on Wednesday in Freeland, Michigan, where he blasted his current legal troubles as politically motivated election interference, as The Hill noted.

“These indictments are not just an attack on me, they're an assault on the constitutional rights of all Americans,” Trump asserted. “The ultimate verdict on this travesty will not come in a courtroom, it will come at the ballot box,” he added, and at least as of now, it seems that many in a handful of critical electoral jurisdictions agree.
