Donald Trump, the presumptive GOP nominee, is still the favorite to win the general election come this November at BetOnline.


Biden was at even odds to be re-elected coming into this weekend, Trump -110.  Trump continues to see the most bets at BetOnline, which is considered the largest political betting site in the world.  

The latest NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll found that President Biden and former President Donald Trump are statistically tied though Trump still leads in nearly all of the swing states.

But now comes word that a key voting block is backing the former President.

According to the NPR report, young voters, Latinos and independents in the survey are either sliding away from Biden or aren't sold on voting for him. 

"It's a big deal, because we're in the beginnings of a seismic shift in the nature of our parties," said Lee Miringoff, director of the Marist College Institute for Public Opinion, in an interview with NPR. "Regardless of what happens in 2024, there's a coalitional shifting going on, and the question is, where does that end up and where are we in 10 years with these trends?"

The most drastic change perhaps: Nonwhite: 2024: Biden +11; 2020: Biden +45 (net change: Trump +34).

"Black Americans are waking up to the reality that the Democratic Party has taken advantage of them, and the media and the party are terrified. Our community supports the policies of President Donald J. Trump and knows full well that life was better four years ago under his administration. No amount of media deception or liberal race baiting will sway the minds of Black voters will cast their ballots this November for safer streets, a better financial well-being, a secure border, and a complete rejection of Joe Biden's disastrous tenure," Diante Johnson, President of the Black Conservative Federation said in a statement.

In 2000, Trump easily won Florida courtesy of the Latin vote in Miami-Dade, a county that was once reliably blue.
