On Thursday, President Biden signed a bill making Juneteenth a federal holiday. Our hope is that all Americans can feel the power of this day, learn from our history, celebrate our progress – and grapple with the distance we still have to travel.


This week, Secretary Granholm rolls up her sleeves and gets a behind-the-scenes look at just some of the good-paying, union jobs that the American Jobs Plan will create.


Today is a day of profound weight and power – both a celebration and a reminder: A celebration of freedom for all, and a reminder that the work goes on.


Juneteenth is now officially a federal holiday.


Take a coffee break with Carmel Martin, Deputy Director of the Domestic Policy Council – and hear about our Administration’s plans for paid family and medical leave.

Biden opens 13-point Florida lead over Trump as DeSantis’ popularity plummets

A Quinnipiac poll of Florida released Thursday had bad news for Gov. Ron DeSantis and President Donald Trump, with DeSantis seeing his lowest approval ratings ever and Trump down by double digits to Joe Biden. This comes on the heels of consistent back-to-back national polls showing Biden with a +15 landslide lead over Trump

Floridians also said the virus was “out of control” in the state. They overwhelmingly backed a statewide mask order and believed the state opened up too early. But they’re not behind a new shutdown just yet. Overall, DeSantis’ job rating was 41% positive to 52% negative, a massive swing from April when he received a positive 53% to 33% negative job approval rating, which even then was low compared to record-high approval for most state governors at the time. The numbers are the lowest for DeSantis since taking office in January 2019.

Trump’s handling of the virus also was negative, at just 37% approval to 52% disapproval, down 11 points from April. Overall, Trump had a negative 40% to 58% job approval rating, compared with 45% approval and 51% disapproval in April. “The president doesn’t escape the shifting moods and concerns of voters in Florida,” Malloy said. “His sagging numbers are a gut punch from one of the key states he keenly hopes to win.” The biggest margin was in favor of masks, with 79% backing mandatory use in public compared with just 20% opposed. Floridians also mostly supported removing Confederate statues and renaming military bases named after Confederate generals. A majority, 51%, said they see the Confederate flag as a symbol of racism. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.2 percentage points.

Biden's Double-Digit Lead over Trump

By the numbers: Biden is ahead of Trump 55%-40% among registered voters. However, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee's margin reduces to 54%-44% among likely voters.
Why it matters: Per the poll news release, "Three and a half months ago the two candidates were virtually even in trust to handle the pandemic, Trump +2 percentage points, 45-43 percent. Today, with COVID-19 cases surging around the nation, Biden leads Trump on the issue by a 20-point margin, 54-34 percent."

Biden has now taken the Lead with Young People with a +18% jump in support, Suburban Women and the majority of Americans now feel Joe Biden on the Economy - no doubt to the ire of Trump, who's only claim to any shred of success has been maintaining the growth of the Obama-Biden economy (The longest and greatest period of economic growth in U.S. history). Below are all the ways the Nation has reported favoring Biden over Trump by dramatic double-digits.

Trump's Enthusiasm Problem

According to Politico, 79% of Biden supporters are extremely enthusiastic about their candidate and are dug-in, solidly committed to vote Biden in 2020. Democrats rated their level of interest in the election as a “9” or “10” on a 1-10 scale, more than the 74 percent of Republicans who gave the same ratings. The irony of the Trump campaign enthusiasm shtick with claims that Biden lacks support, is that Americans are speaking up and declaring loudly that's it's just the opposite: Trump has an enthusiasm problem. After firing Brad Parscale - sorry, "demoting" Parscale - it seems likely that boasting and bragging about ~1 Million tickets and creating an embarrassing public display of a campaign rally in deep-red Oklahoma with only 6,000 attendees scattered around a stadium might've had something to do with it. But, for their part, the Trump campaign hasn't seemed to put in any real effort to correct course much. Aside from Trump finally following Biden's example months later and wearing a mask, there doesn't seem to be even a glimmer of a plan from the MAGA team. Biden, on the other hand, has been cranking out plans weekly - and undercutting Trump's 'Murica-First talk with a Made in America plan that's actually made in America, for American employees and employers. The Trump Administration still doesn't manufacture their merchandise in America, and has been at the helm while Factories and Manufacturers abandon ship and outsource jobs to other countries.

In other polls, such as NBC, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden holds a double-digit lead at +11 points nationally over President Donald Trump, with 7 in 10 voters saying the country is on the wrong track and majorities disapproving of the president's handling of the corona virus and race relations. Those are the major findings the NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll that comes 3 months before the presidential election, amid a pandemic that has killed about 140,000 people in the U.S. and during protests and debates over race across the country.

In the combined 11 battleground states — Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin — Biden leads Trump by 12 points, 52 percent to 40 percent. The only demographic Trump has a significant lead in is whites without college degrees (57 percent to 35 percent). Biden now leads white voters with college degrees (53 percent to 38 percent), women (58 percent to 35 percent), Young voters 18 to 34 (62 percent to 23 percent), Latinos (67 percent to 22 percent), and African American voters (80 percent to a dismal 6 percent). You read that right: six percent. What's more, half of voters — 50 percent — say there is no chance at all that they would vote for Trump (compared with 37 percent who say the same of Biden).
