Poll: Nearly Two-Thirds of Americans Say Maintaining Law and Order a 'major concern'; Trump's 'law and order' message expands electoral map to unlikely battleground state

Nearly two-thirds of Americans say maintaining law and order a 'major concern': Poll:
Nearly two-thirds of people are very concerned about the United States’s ability to maintain law and order as the nation faces ongoing racial justice protests, rising violent crime in some cities, and an upcoming presidential election, according to a newly released poll.
Sixty-five percent of adults told Monmouth University pollsters that maintaining law and order across the U.S. is a “major concern,” while 35% described it as a minor problem. Only 8% surveyed between Sept. 3-8 said it is not an issue, the report states.
The figure has dropped in the three months since it spiked to 76% in the days after the death of George Floyd, a black man who died while in the custody of Minneapolis police on May 25. However, it remains higher than 51%, the percentage of people who considered it a big problem five years ago. --->READ MORE HERE

Trump's 'law and order' message expands electoral map to unlikely battleground state:
President Trump has put Democratic challenger Joseph R. Biden on the defensive in Minnesota, an unlikely battleground that hasn’t voted Republican in a presidential election since 1972.
It’s a rare opportunity for Mr. Trump to expand the electoral map and potentially capture Minnesota’s 10 electoral votes to offset a potential loss in Michigan or Wisconsin, two states that he narrowly won in 2016.
Mr. Trump came close to winning Minnesota four years ago. He lost the state to Hillary Clinton by a little more than 1.5 percentage points. This time, his law-and-order message has been amplified by months of unrest and riots in Minneapolis after the death of George Floyd, a Black man, in police custody.
The president’s momentum prompted Mr. Biden’s team to spend millions of dollars on advertising in the state. --->READ MORE HERE
