With one day until Election Day, Rasmussen Reports on Monday released its latest presidential election poll for Ohio, finding incumbent President Donald Trump to be at 48% and former Vice President Joe Biden at 45% among likely voters. This is a three-point jump for President Trump in the Buckeye State from a Rasmussen poll two weeks ago.

While many experts say that the victor of this contentious election will most likely be decided in another Rust-Belt swing state, Pennsylvania, Ohio still remains crucial for Trump keeping his seat at the Resolute desk. In 2016, Trump won Ohio by eight points, with just over 51% of the vote.

It is important to note that over 2.9 million mail-in ballots have already been returned to election clerks as of Monday, the U.S. Elections Project has reported. Rasmussen found that 60% of Ohio voters have already voted.

According to the same survey, Rasmussen found that 3% are voting for a non-major-party candidate and that 4% of likely voters are undecided.

The pollster says that there is a 3.5% margin of error with a 95% level of confidence in the survey conducted between October 31 and November 1 among 800 likely voters in Ohio.

With polls consistently showing a poor approval rating for President Joe Biden at below 40 percent, and a recent poll put Kamala Harris’ electability at only 28 percent, Democrats are in full panic mode.

Behind-the-scenes discussion of how Democrats could arrive at a third option for the next election is underway. Operatives are preparing for the possibility of a contested presidential primary in which other would-be nominees take on Ms. Harris, but that could be damaging for the party” reports the Telegraph.

Therefore, Democrats are allegedly whispering about a potential “nuclear option” that would call for current Vice President Harris to be nominated to the Supreme Court. The Telegraph writes that “while the scenario is highly improbable, and perhaps a reflection of a Washington rumor mill in overdrive, the fact it has come up at all shows the depths of the predicament the Biden administration currently finds itself in, amid rising inflation, a stalled domestic agenda, and foreign policy disasters.”

The theory in question would call for President Biden to nominate Harris to the Supreme Court in the event a seat opens in the next three years during his administration. Biden could then use “Section 2 of the 25thAmendment to nominate a more popular vice president”, adds the Telegraph.

Under Section 1 of the 25th Amendment, that new vice president could assume the presidency if Biden were to step down while president. They would then become the Democratic nominee in the 2024 presidential election. That same individual could also be the presumptive Democratic nominee in 2024 if Biden chooses not to run for re-election.

One piece of information that is wetting Democrats’ whistle is that current Supreme Court Justice Breyer has said he does not “want to stay on the Supreme Court until I die.”

The Telegraph notes that “the discussion over potential successors to Mr. Biden is highly unusual less than a year into an administration.”
