A few numbers came out last week that spell trouble for Joe Biden’s bid to unseat President Donald Trump this November.

A recent Gallup poll showed that 81 percent of black Americans, 83 percent of Hispanic Americans and 88 percent of white Americans want police to spend the same amount or more time in their area.

Unsurprising numbers, considering in Democrat-controlled cities like Chicago, crime is out of control.

Meanwhile, Biden is expressing support of defunding police. President Trump supports law enforcement, Biden calls them the “enemy.”

Here is another number — Quarter 3 GDP growth is likely to be around 20 percent, which shatters the previous record of 16.7 percent annual rate, which was set in 1950.

It’s difficult to acknowledge that number without crediting Trump.

Finally, a recent tracking poll showed President Trump’s approval rating hit seven points higher than President Barack Obama’s was at the same point in 2012.
