(PatriotWise.com) — As the autumn equinox approaches and the summer season comes to an end in the United States, most major media outlets and both dominant political parties on the national level have attempted to generate a heightened focus on the upcoming 2024 presidential election. The second GOP debate is poised to take place on September 27th at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library. It appears that the former 45th president of the United States, Donald Trump, is poised to once again skip the Republican debate for the second time in a row. To his credit, Trump maintains a massive lead over the crowded field of candidates and feels that there is no reason to make an appearance or even entertain an audience with the struggling cluster of opponents. In recent polls, he is leading the second place candidate, Ron DeSantis, by over 40 points.
In the face of four criminal indictments, Trump maintains colossal voter support and a commanding lead in the GOP primary. While critics continue to claim (likely with some validity) that Trump would be vulnerable in a general election due to his unpopularity nationally across party lines with moderate voters, the Republican voting base remains galvanized, staunchly standing by the American business mogul from New York City. Many early 2024 polls that show Joe Biden rematching with Trump conclude a “dead heat”, or an even split in voter support. In all likelihood, should Biden and Trump once again go head-to-head, the election would be a nail biter. While Trump is unpopular, so is Biden, and his approval ratings continue to falter by the day.
One area in which Trump has consistently criticized Biden is his handling of the southern border. It is estimated that millions of illegal migrants have entered America from Mexico under Biden’s watch, an appalling statistic. In an interview with Megyn Kelly, Trump said serious action must be taken to combat the ruthless cartel in Mexico.
