CNN Host Baffled as Michigan Poll Shows Trump Ahead by 20 Points on Key Issue: ‘World Is Upside Down’

CNN host Dana Bash was baffled after learning that President Donald Trump is connecting with voters on key issues.

Bash marveled at how Trump is leading against Democrat President Joe Biden on most key issues in Michigan, most notably on the Israel-Gaza war.

During a segment on CNN, Bash about polling conducted in the battleground states of Michigan and Pennsylvania.

It shows Trump leading Biden in the Great Lakes State and the presumptive candidates tied in the Keystone State.

She said that if Trump wins both, Biden cannot afford to lose any other swing states, such as “Nevada, Arizona, Georgia, Wisconsin, or Nebraska’s second congressional district, or he will not win the White House.”

The news anchor went on to express shock that “abortion and democracy” are “the only two issues” where Biden has an advantage in both states.

Trump is leading Biden on several major issues, including the economy, immigration, and Israel/Gaza.

While reviewing the polling numbers, Bash appeared stunned, saying:

“Then you look at other issues: U.S and world affairs, economy, immigration, Israel/Gaza, Trump has an advantage and it’s actually- if you look at the Israel-Gaza question, the fact that Trump has a 20-point advantage in Michigan.

“I mean, the world is upside down,” she said.

CNN political director David Chalian argued that Trump’s advantage may not be enthusiasm for his policy.

Instead, Chalian said the dissatisfaction with Biden’s position on Israel among Michigan’s large population of Muslims and Arab Americans is likely having an impact.

“But I think that finding probably explains a lot of Joe Biden’s troubles in Michigan right now as well,” Chalian said.

“I mean, it’s obviously an issue that we saw in the primary where the uncommitted vote against him, we see young voters, independents, people who have been affiliated with this, calling for a ceasefire movement, very frustrated with the president and his policies, and so that’s clearly partly at play here in Michigan.”

“Yeah. No question,” Bash replied.

“But it’s hard to imagine that Donald Trump will be any more sympathetic to what’s going on in Gaza than Joe Biden is, which is what is so surprising.”

“It has nothing to do with their actual policy positions, right, necessarily or what he’s proposing,” he said.


In February, 100,000 people voted “uncommitted” in the Michigan Democrat primary.

The move was a warning to Biden that voters may stay home on November’s Election Day if he continues his current stance on Israel.
