Trump supporters taunt Biden rally-goers in Florida

Supporters of U.S. President Donald Trump supporters taunted people attending Democratic challenger Joe Biden’s rally on Thursday (October 29) as they left the socially distanced drive-in event in the battleground state of Florida.

Trump supporters held up signs with messages like “Socialism Sucks” and “African Americans do not owe Democrats your vote” as Biden’s event ended in Broward.

“We are not communists,” Biden supporter Norma Diaz shouted in Spanish as she left the rally.

Both Biden and President Donald Trump rallied supporters on Thursday in the closely fought state of Florida, highlighting their contrasting approaches to the resurgent coronavirus pandemic as the clock ticks down to Election Day.

A Reuters/Ipsos poll released on Wednesday showed Trump had essentially moved into a tie with Biden in Florida, with 49% saying they would vote for Biden and 47% for the president.

With its 29 electoral votes, the state is a major prize in Tuesday’s election. Trump’s victory in Florida in 2016 was vital to his surprise election win.

Florida is home to large Latino populations, with Cuban Americans in the south of Florida traditionally tending to favor Republicans, while newer communities of Puerto Ricans in central Florida lean toward the Democrats.

Biden’s campaign tried on Thursday to dampen concerns among Democrats that Biden is not reaching Latino voters nationally as well as former President Barack Obama used to.
