The aftereffects of the Republican National Convention are still very much at play. Analytics comparing the GOP convention to the Democrats’ convention show some very clear differences.

For starters, more Americans tuned into President Trump’s nomination acceptance speech than they did Joe Biden’s. Secondly, while the Democratic National Convention is being branded as an “‘I Hate America’ Zoom call,” many Americans are conversely calling the Republican National Convention patriotic.


New information shows that the GOP National Convention is having more impacts on the 2020 presidential election than some people might have anticipated.

In fact, Washington Examiner confirms that minority approval of the president’s job in office surged during the Republican National Convention.

What to Know About New Approval Surges for President Trump

Prior to the GOP National Convention, 15% of black Americans and 30% of Hispanic Americans stated their approval of the president’s job in the White House. However, a poll taken during the four nights of the Republican National Convention shows that black and Hispanic approval of Trump jumped by 9% and 2%.

During the GOP National Convention, conservative speakers talked about the various ways that the Trump administration has benefited minorities. A few of several examples include the creation of new jobs, lowered taxes, active steps in favor of criminal justice reform, etc.

Democrats, by contrast, spent much of their convention branding the United States as inherently and systemically racist.

A New Shift in National Election Polls

Increases in black and Hispanic support for President Trump align with a new trend in general election polls.

Overall, Biden’s reported lead of Trump in the polls is lessening. This interestingly coincides with the GOP National Convention, along with the president getting out and about to campaign in different parts of the nation.

Meanwhile, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are taking very different approaches to the 2020 campaign cycle. The former vice president continues to give occasional interviews from his basement; meanwhile, there are reports that Biden and Harris are planning to adopt a strictly virtual method of campaigning.

Another notable factor in declining poll numbers for Biden is the Democrats’ repeated calls for him to cancel his plans to debate Trump.
