Donald Trump’s rhetoric decreased his popularity with the voters. The media especially focused on swing states.

Recent polls show how Americans’ opinion changes and levels of leaning to Hillary Clinton grow. Experts suggest that such attitude in swing states can provide an Electoral College majority to the Democratic candidate.

Trump lost percents in all swing states, regardless of their traditional attitude to American Parties. In other words, both regions that didn’t accept Hillary Clinton (Florida and Ohio with single-digit leads) and supported Democrats turned their backs on the Republican nominee. The last list includes New Hampshire, Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania. “Republican” states Colorado and Virginia changed their minds back in Obama’s election, and show similar interest to Democrats in the case of Clinton. These six states can give her enough advantage of Trump at the final of the political rally.

Donald Trump would like Stalin, Biden said

Trump’s ideas and comments about different events and people are one of the reasons why his popularity decreased not only among voters, but among his own party. High-ranking officials criticized the Republican nominee repeatedly. Joe Biden, the current Vice President, became one of Trump’s “attackers”. The politician thinks the businessman from New York demonstrates lack of knowledge about the foreign policy and other important questions. Biden called Trump a fanboy of dictators, and told an audience in an appearance on Monday with Hillary Clinton that he “would have loved Stalin.”

“He likes autocrats, he wills the politics of fear and intolerance, calling for a ban of Muslims in the United States, slandering proud Muslim parents of a Gold Star family,” Biden said to a crowd of more than 3,000. “Look, Trump’s ideas are not only profoundly wrong, they’re very dangerous and they’re very un-American.”

Biden’s remarks directed against Trump were part of a one-hour-long joint appearance with Clinton in Scranton, Pa., where both have family roots and are seeking to win working-class voters in a swing state.

The Clinton campaign had planned the event to focus on the economy, and the two assailed Trump’s plans and touted the Democratic nominee’s own agenda.
