'I would take any polls right now with a few grains of salt, possibly the whole shaker' says Heritage's Noah Weinrich

"The key takeaway from these polls is that, swing voters are more important than ever and that conservatives can still win them over on policy," says Noah Weinrich from Heritage Action for America.

(KFTK) –  "The fact is, the current polls are not going Trump's way. He's behind nationally and in some key battleground states," says Noah Weinrich, the Press Secretary for Heritage Action for America.  "As Kellyanne Conway pointed out this week, that's not surprising during the greatest economic, social and racial upheaval in decades."

Weinrich joined Randy to discuss the current polling trends facing Donald Trump in his campaign against former Vice President Joe Biden.

"The polls were notably misleading in 2016, even the day before the election they were saying Hillary Clinton was going to win," says Weinrich. "Right now we're four or five months out from November, and there haven't even been any debates between Biden and Trump. So a lot can change before then."

Randy and Noah both agree that a good way for Trump to appeal to voters is through "personal responsibility" regarding the Covid-19 shutdowns. 

"Heritage Action pushed for this starting in April once it became clear that lockdowns weren't always the answer, you know maybe in certain situations," says Weinrich.  "At the end of the day, it depends on what Americans are going to do. If you have a lockdown that nobody obeys, people are going to get sick.  If you don't have a lockdown, but people maintain common sense, people aren't going to get sick. So really, people's behavior is more important than just a law on the book. I think a lot of Americans  know that."
