Undecided Voters in Florida Are Leaning Trump by a 4:1 Margin
We’re in the home stretch with less than two months until the election, and as always, it’ll be Independents who end up determining the victor. And in that case, Trump is eyeing a sizable forthcoming victory in the electoral college, and could even have a shot at winning the popular vote this cycle (which he lost by roughly 2 points in 2016).
Voters Who’ve Experienced Riots Overwhelmingly Back Trump
Three-out-of-four voters who’ve had violent anti-police protests in their community rate those protests important to their vote in the presidential election. Among these voters, a sizable majority like the job President Trump is doing.

Death from COVID-19 very rare for Americans 21 and under, report says
Only a tiny fraction of children and young adults who have contracted COVID-19 have died from their infection, a new government report shows.
Just 121 people younger than 21 have died from COVID-19 through the end of July, out of nearly 392,000 confirmed or probable cases, said researchers led by Dr. Danae Bixler from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The deaths of young Americans generally fall along the lines of risk that have applied to all people since the start of the pandemic.
Incomes were at record highs and poverty at record low before pandemic struck, new census figures reveal
The median U.S. household income rose 6.8% to $68,700 in 2019, the Census Bureau reported Tuesday, the highest on record.
Tuesday's figures show that the country was enjoying the best economic conditions in a generation before the pandemic struck, with low unemployment, fast-rising incomes, and declining poverty.
The number of people in poverty in 2019 fell by 4.2 million to 34.0 million, the bureau reported.
The poverty rate fell by 1.3 percentage points to 10.5%, the fifth consecutive annual decline and the lowest rate observed since estimates were initially published for 1959.
President Trump has campaigned touting the economy as it was performing prior to the mass layoffs of the spring and summer. The census data indicates that households were indeed beginning to reap the rewards of more than a decade of economic expansion and rising employment before the coronavirus hit.
Rep. Andy Biggs to hold special order on House floor to find out who's been funding recent riots
Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., plans to hold a special order on the House floor Wednesday, to allow several congressional members to speak about recent rioting in the U.S. and the possible sources of funding behind them.
Biggs' office said he will host the special order following the last votes of the day and speakers are expected to include: Reps. Ken Buck, R-Colo., Chip Roy, R-Texas, Dan Bishop, R-N.C., and Louie Gohmert R-Texas, along with several others.
“It will be about law and order and attacks on police in neighborhood communities," Biggs told Fox News during a phone interview.
“We will be allowed to control time on the floor and we’re going to have a series of members come and speak to these issues," he said. "We should be able to go [for] a full hour. It’s going to be a good group – a diverse group of speakers. It’s from all over the conference. They’ll all bring their own perspectives from their own districts and responses to what’s going on.”
