New VP announcement from the Trump campaign completely changes the game

Americans everywhere are curious who the former president is going to take under his wing. He knows he needs a strong running mate in this race.

And now a new VP announcement from the Trump campaign completely changed the game.

The Biden-Harris ticket could very well be dead-on-arrival.

Voters across the country do not approve of the way Joe Biden has handled any of his duties as president.

Only 37.6% of Americans approve of Biden while 56.5% disapprove of him according to FiveThirtyEight polling averages on June 6th.

It’s gotten so bad for Joe that even Kamala, who usually polls far worse than him, is beating him with a 38.4% approval rating – still terrible, but statistically better.

But even with a seemingly enormous advantage, Trump isn’t going to count his eggs before they’ve hatched.

He’s well aware that with the entire D.C. swamp after him, he’ll need to have a strong ticket and an immaculate strategy to take the White House back.

And now the gears are moving.

Former President Donald Trump’s campaign has reportedly requested documentation from many potential vice presidential running mates.

North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum (R), Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC), Rep. Byron Donalds (R-FL), Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY), Sen. J.D. Vance (R-OH), and former cabinet member Ben Carson are among those who have already received inquiries.

Those listed may not be the only ones who have been contacted thus far, as ABC News claimed that “others are likely to be considered for the No. 2 job.”

The Associated Press reported that the list is “fluid and evolving,” implying that it would most likely change when Trump sees fit.

A Trump campaign spokeswoman stated that “anyone claiming to know who or when President Trump will choose his VP is lying, unless the person is named Donald J. Trump.”

According to a recent I&I/TIPP poll, 15% of Republican voters chose Florida Governor Ron DeSantis as their first option for vice president, with 14% choosing him as their second choice – both figures were the highest among all candidates named.

Carson earned the highest ranking for first choice in the poll among the candidates named by the Associated Press with 5%, followed by Scott at 4%, Rubio at 2%, and the remaining contestants at 1% or below.

Another name that has made news in recent weeks and may be creeping up Trump’s list of potential candidates is Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR), particularly after his strong defense of Trump during a Sunday interview with NBC News.

When asked during the interview if he would accept the job offer, Cotton responded: “Any great patriot, if offered a chance to serve our country by the president, would have to consider it seriously.

“But what I’m focused on, like the president, is making sure that we win this election in November, and I want to help him govern successfully to restore the peace and prosperity that he brought to America for four years that Joe Biden has destroyed.”
