It’s the longstanding problem with America’s two-party system…
Every election, countless Americans trudge to the polls. And although they don’t like either candidate, they pull the lever for one anyway.
Previous studies have shown that these disgruntled voters do in fact vote.
And in 2020, they’re more important than ever. In fact, President Donald Trump can’t win without them.

Polling has shown that there is an enormous bloc of voters who do not like both Trump nor his challenger, former Vice President Joe Biden.
While the mainstream media likes to hammer Trump on his low approval ratings, they typically ignore the fact that Biden is incredibly unpopular as well.
A RealClear Politics average of several polls shows that 46.1 percent of Americans have an unfavorable view of Biden, compared to only 44.5 percent who have a favorable view.
True, Biden is widely disliked … but so far that isn’t helping Trump.
Research by Morning Consult has found that when voters who dislike both candidates are forced to choose one, they’re breaking toward Biden by a wide 29 percent margin.
That’s potentially millions of votes.
These unenthused voters may not seem significant, but they were key to Trump capturing the presidency in 2016.
In 2016, voters who disliked both Trump and his challenger, Hillary Clinton, ended up voting for Trump by a 17-point margin.
And Trump won these voters handily in the battleground states of Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.
Obviously, Trump has no chance of winning over voters who passionately support Biden, and he won’t even try.
Trump’s mission will be to convince voters who don’t like either candidate that he is the lesser evil.
As Biden’s platform takes shape and as it becomes increasingly clear that extremists are hijacking the Democratic Party with out-of-touch, unpopular proposals … that could become easier to do as time goes by.
