Your Daily Roundup for July 22nd
Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
Good morning. As the COVID-19 pandemic takes a toll on life in America, our team at Future Majority is tracking the latest updates:
President Trump held his first COVID-19 briefing since April:
For the first time in months, President Trump held a televised briefing on the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States. He admitted that the virus will “get worse before it gets better” as it rages in large swaths of the country. The public did not get a chance to hear from the nation’s top public health experts, including Dr. Anthony Fauci or Dr. Deborah Birx.
The U.S. is shelling out $2 billion for a vaccine:
The federal government announced a $2 billion contract with Pfizer and BioNTech for 600 million doses of a COVID-19 vaccine. The companies say they are on track to manufacture 100 million doses as soon as December.
The development of a vaccine is only as good as it’s availability to all. Congress and the Trump administration must ensure that every single American can obtain a vaccine by making it no-cost.
New polling shows Trump down in Pennsylvania and Ohio
Rasmussen Reports is out with new state polling for the general election, and it shows President Trump trailing former Vice President Joe Biden in two key states:
- Biden: 51%
- Trump: 46%
- Biden: 50%

However, the poll shows improvement in Trump’s approval rating by a significant margin compared to other national polls:
- Approve: 48%
- Disapprove: 51%
