According to an Emerson College poll published Thursday morning, former President Donald Trump holds an 11 point lead in a hypothetical head-to-head with President Joe Biden in Ohio. The impressive double-digit lead was revealed in 1,844 registered voter respondents; 47 percent said they would back Trump compared to 36 percent for Biden. Nine percent would back someone else, and nine percent would be undecided in a two-way race.

Trump carried Ohio in both of the last presidential elections, securing 53.3 percent of the vote in 2020 and beating Biden by 8.1 points. In 2016, he bested twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton by taking 51.3 percent of the vote to her 43.2 percent. Ohio, which was long a swing state, went blue for former President Barack Obama in the 2008 and 2012 elections.

Breitbart.com reports: As efforts are underway in states around the country to use the Fourteenth Amendment to remove Trump from the ballot, the poll asked respondents, “Which comes closer to your view: Donald Trump should be on the Republican Primary ballot or we should leave the decision to the courts?”

More than half of the participants, 51 percent, believe Trump should be on the ballot, while 37 percent say the matter should be left to the courts. Another 12 percent do not have an opinion.

The poll was conducted from January 23-25 and has a credibility interval of ± 3.2 percentage points.

It comes as a Bloomberg News/Morning Consult poll published Wednesday showed Trump beating Biden in seven crucial swing states, as Breitbart News’s John Nolte laid out:

Here’s the rundown head-to-head:

  • Arizona: Trump 47 / Biden 44 — Trump +3
  • Georgia: Trump 49 / Biden 41 — Trump +8
  • Michigan: Trump 47 / Biden 42 — Trump +5
  • Nevada: Trump 48 / Biden 40 — Trump +8
  • North Carolina: Trump 49 / Biden 39 — Trump +10
  • Pennsylvania: Trump 48 / Biden 45 — Trump +3
  • Wisconsin: Trump 49 / Biden 44 — Trump +5

Here’s the rundown with Robert F. Kennedy Jr. on the ticket. The other independent and third-party candidates (Cornel West, Jill Stein) only earn a point or two:

  • Arizona: Trump 43 / Biden 35 / Kennedy 10 — Trump +8
  • Georgia: Trump 44 / Biden 37 / Kennedy 8 — Trump +7
  • Michigan: Trump 43 / Biden 37 / Kennedy 8 — Trump +6
  • Nevada: Trump 43 / Biden 31 / Kennedy 12 — Trump +12
  • North Carolina: Trump 45 / Biden 32 / Kennedy 9 — Trump +13
  • Pennsylvania: Trump 43 / Biden 40 / Kennedy 7 — Trump +3
  • Wisconsin: Trump 43 / Biden 35 / Kennedy 10 — Trump +8

That poll was conducted January 16-24 and sampled 4,956 registered voters across the seven states.

DOJ says FBI informant on Biden had ‘high-level’ contacts with Russian intelligence

Published

In a memorandum filed with the U.S. District Court for the District of Nevada to support Alexander Smirnov’s continued pre-trial detention, the Department of Justice(DOJ) wrote that he claimed to have had “contacts with multiple foreign intelligence agencies…[who] could resettle Smirnov outside the United States if he were released.”

Smirnov, a dual citizen of the United States and Israel, was arrested and charged on Feb. 14 with making false statements to the FBI about Biden’s connections to the Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings Limited, which employed his son Hunter Biden as a member of the board with a monthly salary of $50,000 during his term as vice president.

“During his custodial interview on February 14, Smirnov admitted that officials associated with Russian intelligence were involved in passing a story about [Hunter Biden],” wrote special counsel David Weiss in the filing. “Smirnov apparently attended a separate meeting with Russian Official 1, [an] individual who controls groups that are engaged in overseas assassination efforts.”

The Daily Caller News Foundation reports that Smirnov was a confidential human source who provided information that was used to prepare a report, known as an FD-1023, about Joe Biden’s alleged connections to the Burisma business partners of Hunter Biden. That report has previously served as evidence contradictingJoe Biden’s claim that he knew nothing of his son’s business dealings; a notion at the center of an impeachment inquiry against him.

The FD-1023 detailing Smirnov’s claims was released by Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa on July 20, 2023, after it was provided to him by government whistleblowers. “[The] indictment confirms several points Senator Grassley has made repeatedly. The informant behind the FD-1023 was, indeed, a long-serving, trusted FBI source used by the agency for criminal investigations since the Obama administration. In fact, he was so trusted that the FBI provided him authorization ‘to engage in illegal activity for investigative purposes’,” a spokesperson for Grassley told the Daily Caller News Foundation.
