A well-known businessman revealed political divisions on Capitol Hill are affecting the accuracy of surveys on the outcome of the upcoming election.
Jeffrey Gundlach has serious concerns about the impartiality of polls about President Donald Trump’s bid for another four years in the Oval Office.
“Will Joe Biden beat Donald Trump in November? I do not think so, I would bet against that,” he said, according to Bloomberg News.
More than three years of fighting between the Democrat–controlled House and Republican–led Senate has created an extremely hostile political environment that could easily have influenced the outcome of polls.
“I think the polls are very, very squishy because of the highly toxic political environment in which we live,” Gundlach, the chief executive of DoubleLine Capital, said.
The latest RealClearPolitics poll results appear to support this theory, with the president continuing to trail behind Biden by 7.5 points with 41.8 percent of the vote compared to the Democrat’s 49.3 percent.
Kamala Harris “a little too charismatic”
Gundlach correctly predicted President Trump’s victory at the 2016 general election. He suggested the Democratic presidential candidate made a tactical error when he chose Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) as his preferred vice president if the Democrats were to win the 2020 presidential election.
“[Harris appears to be] a little too charismatic,” he said. “I do not think it is a good pick.”
He predicted Harris’s hard-headed approach to politics would only make it more difficult for Biden to lead America through the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) Virus recovery.
“She might be a little bit dominant with her personality,” he said.
Gundlach is standing by his January statement that Biden is “unelectable,” and suspects there will be many more surprises between now and Election Day on Nov. 3.
“I think there is a lot of time here, there is going to be a lot of twists and turns,” he said.
A deciding factor will be the Trump administration’s success in finding a vaccine for the CCP Virus. If trials prove effective, business confidence is expected to significantly rebound from the six-year low levels seen after much of the nation was ordered to stay at home, according to Fox News.
Voters are also watching how America handles the rise of communist China and manages the political balance of power in the U.S. Supreme Court. The most pressing issue is finding a peaceful resolution to extreme anarchist protests spreading across the nation following the death-in-custody of Minnesotan George Floyd in May.
“I have been asking people, ‘Do you know anybody that really supports Joe Biden?’ and I have not met a single person that says they know anybody that truly supports Joe Biden,” Gundlach said according to the broadcaster.
