Biden campaign brands Trump ‘convicted felon’ in new swing-state ad

by ian

President Joe Biden is looking to capitalize on former President Donald Trump’s conviction in New York. The Biden campaign released a new ad this week branding Trump as a “convicted felon.”

The ad will run in every swing state in hopes of dissuading more moderate voters from voting for Trump in the presidential election. And it might end up working. A recent Politico poll shows 21% of independents said Trump’s conviction would make them less likely to support him in November and will be an important factor in their vote.

Politico notes many Americans, about 43%, question whether Trump received a fair trial, meaning how the verdict will affect the election in the long run is still an open question.
