On June 18, President Trump will formally kick off his 2020 bid for re-election with a massive campaign rally in Orlando, Florida.
Hundreds of people have been lining up outside the Amway Center days in advance, hoping to be one of the 20,000 people inside, including Kelli Burrier who said it was her teenage daughter’s idea to come.
“Trump supporters don’t get a chance really to be out in the open about their support of this president, so it’s really nice to be with other people who think like you do,” she said.
The campaign, bracing for overflow, planning on airing the announcement on screens in what they’re calling “45 Fest.”
Earlier in the day, a new 2020 poll in Florida came in with some bad news for Trump. According to the poll, former Vice-President Joe Biden is preliminarily leading Trump 50 percent to 41 percent.
Meanwhile, Biden has his eyes on the south.
“I plan on campaigning in the south. I plan, and if i’m your nominee, I’m winning Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, believe it or not. And I believe we can win Texas and Florida,” the Democratic Presidential Candidate said.
The Quinnipiac University poll also shows several other democratic candidates with an edge over the president, including Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris and Beto O’Rourke.
Next week these candidates will have a chance to sway voters in the sunshine state at the first democratic debate in Miami.
