CNN’s Randi Kaye interviewed Iowans to see if they would back Pres. Donald Trump or former VP Joe Biden in 2020. The panel consisted of 10 voters, four said they plan on voting for Trump, while three plan to cast their vote for Biden.
In the video below, you will see the host Kaye try to change minds in her own little way.
Trump made a pitch to Iowa voters with strong feelings on illegal immigration. He said open borders equal “massive crime.” Look at “the problems with disease coming into our country. People say, ‘don’t say that that’s not nice.’ Happens to be true,” he told GOP fundraiser. pic.twitter.com/fsPLP6DOTD

Frank Moran: “the economy is booming where I just feel as though everything that I’ve been wanting to have done is being done.”
Heather Halterman: “he’s working on border control which I think is really important.”
Noah Hamoud: “he can do a good job of bringing the country together. If we can move past rhetoric and bring in someone who’s more respected worldwide, I think we can have a better country from that,” he said.
Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg had a supporter in Katie Carlson who told the panel she didn’t know how voters could support Pres. Trump as she called out her perception of blatant misogyny.
Carlson: “I don’t know how you can possibly paint that broad of a brush and just say not only a Republicans but just Americans are pleased with who we have. As a woman, it is frustrating, depressing, and frightening to hear people just brush aside the misogynistic things that Donald Trump has done.”
Carlson, on the other hand, said that Buttigieg was “inspiring, he has a message that can restore the unity that we’re looking for. I think as a veteran too, he would — he would represent us well across the world.”
Forum host Kaye asked Trump supporter Halterman if it bothered her “when the President lies?” She responded, “I think a little — I mean, yes, it does,” “It doesn’t change my vote for him.”
