Don Lemon just sounded the alarm and it is not good news for Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi. Lemon said he had seen recent polling that shows the Dems have a blind spot regardiung the rioting and looting and Trump is poised to take full advantage.
“He’s got to come out and tell people that he is going to do deal with the issue of police reform in this country, and that what’s happening now is happening on Donald Trump’s watch, and when he is the president, Kamala Harris is the vice president, then they will take care of this problem,” Lemon said.
“But guess what, the rioting has to stop.”
“Chris, as you know and I know, it’s showing up in the polls, it’s showing up in focus groups. It’s the only thing right now that’s sticking,” Lemon warned.
“I think Democrats are ignoring this problem, are hoping that it will go away. And it’s not going to go away,” Lemon added.
From The National Review:
A recent Pew survey on the top issues in the 2020 election showed that 59 percent of voters consider dealing with violent crime “very important” to their vote — only three points less important than the coronavirus pandemic.
Lemon also condemned calls for defunding the police, saying that the “fringes” of the party still vocally calling for it was “starting to turn people off.”
“I’m going to say this and I know people don’t like it. Most black people don’t want police defunded. They don’t want fewer police there,” he stated. “What they want, they want more. And most communities of color in this country need police. They may need police more than white communities, okay?”
“There’s more crime,” Cuomo added.
The frank discussion came after businesses were looted and buildings were burned in Kinosha, leaving residents upset. But CNN had already tried to whitewash the unrest, removing a chyron on Tuesday that described the demonstrations as “violent.”
