Blackburn: Voters leaning toward Trump in hope of return to 'normalcy' amid coronavirus pandemic

Blackburn: Trump will ensure COVID recovery quicker than Biden

Senate Judiciary Committee member Marsha Blackburn offers insight on the election as early voting in Tennessee breaks records.

Voters have faith that President Trump will ensure recovery amid the coronavirus pandemic, as the election sees mail-in balloting numbers reaching historic highs, Sen. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., told “Fox & Friends Weekend.”

In Blackburn’s state of Tennessee, early voting has reached a record high of more than 1.4 million ballots already cast.

The Senate Judiciary Committee member argued that this spike doesn’t necessarily mean the election is leaning left. She mentioned that while a Cato Institute survey revealed 62% of Americans don't want to disclose their vote, 56% feel they’re better off than four years ago, according to a Gallup Poll.

“[The voter thinks] Donald Trump is the one that’s going to get us back to a solid starting point for recovery,” Blackburn said. “What got her was Biden talking about locking down the economy again, so she changed her vote.”

According to Blackburn, another voter changed her mind when taking into consideration the importance of our country’s relationship with China, saying she doesn’t trust Joe Biden to do the job.
