The Presidential election is going to be decided by a handful of battleground states across the country.

Both major party candidates are jockeying to get to the advantage. 

And a swing state Governor spoke four words that sent Joe Biden into a fit of rage.

The warning sign is flashing red for Biden in Nevada

Nevada has emerged as one of the more surprising battleground states this election cycle.

Former President Donald Trump lost the state in 2020 by about 34,000 votes.

No Republican Presidential candidate has carried Nevada since former President George W. Bush in the 2004 election.

But based on polling, it appears that Trump could have the advantage over President Joe Biden this time around.

Trump has led every public poll out of Nevada since last October.

And longtime left-wing pundit Jon Ralston – the dean of Nevada politics – concedes that the former President is currently winning the state.

Nevada’s tourism-based economy was decimated during the pandemic after former Democrat Governor Steve Sisolak locked the state down.

Sisolak became the only incumbent Governor to lose during the 2022 Midterm elections.

Now, the current Governor is warning that Biden “just doesn’t get it” when it comes to the skyrocketing cost of living under so-called “Bidenomics.”

Nevada Governor says Joe Biden is clueless about inflation

Nevada Republican Governor Joe Lombardo said that Biden’s “failure to rein in national inflation” could flip the state red in an opinion piece for the New York Times.

“Since Mr. Biden took office, prices have risen 19 percent, a major factor in real average weekly earnings dropping 4 percent,” Lombardo wrote. “This type of economic turmoil is simply unsustainable for Nevada families.”

Lombardo said that his constituents had lost their faith in Biden’s handling of inflation. 

“If recent polling on Democratic candidates in Nevada is any indication, and I think it is, Mr. Biden has a big problem to overcome, because after three and a half years, Nevadans are losing confidence in him to do something meaningful about inflation and housing and are left with the feeling that he just doesn’t get it,” he added.

An influx of residents into Clark County – home of Las Vegas – has driven up the average sale price of a home by 50% since 2016.

Housing has emerged as a major issue in Nevada, where a shortage of homes and rental properties has created an affordability crisis.

Nevadans have to pay nearly $1,200 more per month to buy the same goods and services compared to January 2021 when Biden took office.

Lombardo said that inflation and housing costs were eroding Biden’s support with Hispanic voters in the state.

“Many Nevadans believe that the nation’s economy would be better served with new leadership. They include 69 percent of young voters and 70 percent of Hispanic voters, who say they trust Mr. Trump to do a better job with the economy than Mr. Biden, according to a New York Times/Siena poll concluded last month,” Lombardo wrote.

Democrat strategist James Carville said during the 1992 Presidential election, “It’s the economy, stupid.”

Inflation could put Nevada in the Republican column on Election Day for the first since 2004.
