Donald Trump’s law and order message is ‘resonating’ amid violent protests

Sky News host Alan Jones says polls and betting markets show US President Donald Trump is “surging towards” Democratic nominee Joe Biden.

“You could get $3 for Donald Trump a month ago, and Biden was at $1.30; Trump is now $1.95 and Biden $1.91,” Mr Jones said.

A recent Zogby poll taken days after the Republican National Convention shows President Trump is only six points behind Mr Biden.

“President Trump’s stand on the economy and on law and order in the wake of violent Black Lives Matter protests and looting is resonating with voters,” Mr Jones said.

“The violence in a number of Democrat controlled cities, including New York and Chicago is now overshadowing coronavirus as the central issue of the campaign.

“And Donald Trump has not missed.”
