Transcript for Trump and Biden spar in Iowa
We're moving on to the 20/20 race both president trump and former. Vice president Joseph Biden in the battleground state of Iowa yesterday. Taking jabs at each other like we are days away from election but as you know we still have seventeen months to goes I want to bring in. Avery harm birds or break down this night thanks for being here. Avery a lot at stake here but is biting a threat to trumps reelection. I'm wealth that campaign doesn't think that Biden is a threat they probably should he has the potential to. Appeal to some of the same voters as by if you take a look at the quinnipiac poll that was out yesterday. Barnes actually leading trump in a head to head. Are you concede a Biden that 53%. And trump is that 40% which may be at least a part of the reason why we saw trump slamming Biden Nancy I made his way to I would yesterday even though he did not mention. Biden in his remarks. During a rally. I just alike when they're taking jabs at each other it's sort of distracts from the other issues that people actually care about. Is that the case Kabul if you look at Biden's speech yesterday in addition to taking repeated. Jabs acts trump yesterday he also spoke about climate change which is something that's very important for the people violent they've been you know. We they've been eight experiencing lots of flooding. In veer backyards so that's definitely something that that shall hear a lot more of. On the campaign trail from all the candidates so why all of these think. You definitely hear a lot of policy from these democratic candidates. In one thing I do and. Talk about is the the difference in energy at both of their rallies because trump has major crowds he has these. Big turnouts but Joseph Biden the crowds at his rallies seem to be a little bit more low energy and as we know he notes from calls him president from calls them sleepy Joseph. So what do you think. Well what the Biden campaign has sold me is that they want to keep these events involving once Biden to be able to interact with voters. They pride. Themselves on Biden's authenticity so they think that. As long as he's able to talk to people get really close and personal with them that he'll be able to sway voters in his direction. And how much attention should we be paying. To what's happening right now in terms of polls. It's very early yeah it is very early so not very much if you look. At some of the polls from previous cycles at this time. A lot of those folks are not in the White House they did not make it to the White House they didn't even make it through the primary so you should take these polls the grain of south but we will continue to remain watching. Our I think he's so much Avery we appreciated. For breaking it down for a thick.
