Your Daily Roundup for October 15th
Let us know what you think!
Good morning. As the COVID-19 pandemic takes a toll on life in America, our team at Future Majority is tracking the latest updates:
February 24th, 2020:
On this day, President Trump told the nation and his Twitter followers that COVID-19 was “very much under control” in the U.S. Moreover, he told Americans that the “stock market [is] starting to look very good to me!”
But in private, new reporting from The New York Times shows that the President’s economic advisers were speaking to a different tune to conservative donors at the Hoover Institution. Economic advisers Tomas Philipson and Larry Kudlow painted a very uncertain picture and suggested that, despite their public messaging, the virus would likely rampage the United States. Those privy to the information sold off stocks, while regular Americans continue to struggle.
Virus cases are on the rise:
After a dip in newly daily cases in the late summer, new cases of COVID-19 are surging around the country. Yesterday alone, nearly 60,000 Americans contracted the virus and a staggering 1,011 died. The U.S. is on the wrong trajectory of this pandemic heading into winter when more people head indoors and the seasonal flu season takes hold as well.
NBC News/Wall Street Journal is out with a new national poll:
The poll comes out today less than 20 days until the November 3rd election. Former Vice President Joe Biden is leading President Trump among voters by an 11 point margin:
- Biden: 53%
- Trump: 42%
The president’s approval rating is fairing slightly better than his current vote-share in the poll, however:
- Approve: 44%
- Disapprove: 54%
