Welcome to DailyMail.com’s American politics blog, two days before the first presidential debate between Joe Biden and Donald Trump.

Biden has been holed up at Camp David preparing while Trump has called for his rival to take a drug test ahead of their primetime showdown on CNN at 9 p.m. Thursday.

Meanwhile, a new poll conducted in Georgia, where the debate is being held, has good news for Trump.

There are also crucial primaries in New York and Colorado, where squad member Rep. Jamaal Bowman and scandal-plagued Rep. Lauren Boebert are fighting for their survival in Congress.

Follow all the updates from our reporters in Washington DC and across the country.

Donald Trump leads Joe by Biden by five points in Georgia before the debate

Donald Trump leads Joe Biden by five points in Georgia, two days before the crucial first presidential debate, which is being held in the state.

It comes as the two candidates make final preparations for what could be one of the biggest showdowns ever seen in presidential politics. CNN is fueling the debate in Atlanta on Thursday night.

The poll marks a setback for Biden, who became the first Democrat in nearly 30 years to win the Peach State in 2020 on his way to the White House.

Support for Biden has plummeted among young voters in Georgia, with just 12 percent supporting him.

In total, 70 percent said the country is on the “wrong path,” according to the survey.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. got 9 percent in the poll and 8 percent were undecided.

No donations to Trump from Fortune 100 CEOs

So far, not a single CEO of a Fortune 100 company has donated to Donald Trump, Axios reported.

Trump also did not receive donations from any of them in 2016, but he did collect some in 2020.

Jeffrey Sonnenfeld, president of the Yale Chief Executive Leadership Institute, which collected the data, wrote in the New York Times:

Top corporate leaders working today, like many Americans, are not entirely comfortable with either Trump or President Biden.

Trump group releases ‘Ban Tip Tax stickers’ as it steps up efforts to appeal to working-class voters

Allies of former President Donald Trump will release “No Tip Tax” stickers Tuesday to turn every restaurant receipt into a campaign sign.

Trump unveiled his campaign promise earlier this month during a rally in Las Vegas as he tries to court workers in service industries, promising that tipped workers would no longer pay tip taxes if he wins re-election in November.

The idea has caught on among supporters, who have written “no tip tax” on their receipts.

Now MAGA Inc., the major Super PAC supporting Trump’s 2024 campaign, is offering to make it easier with stickers.

Taylor Budowich, the group’s executive director, said: “It’s simple: President Trump wants hard-working Americans to have more money in their pockets, Joe Biden wants to take advantage of it and give it to illegal immigrants.”

Hillary Clinton Says Donald Trump Will Unleash ‘Storm of Lies’ on Debate Stage

Hillary Clinton offered her advice to Joe Biden on the Donald Trump debate, which she did in 2016.

In a New York Times article, Clinton said it is “nearly impossible to focus on substance” when debating Trump. She said:

In our three debates in 2016, he unleashed a storm of interruptions, insults and lies that overwhelmed moderators and harmed voters…

It is a waste of time to try to refute Mr. Trump’s arguments as in a normal debate. It is almost impossible to identify what his arguments are. He starts with nonsense and then deviates into nonsense. This has only gotten worse in the years since we debated

…expectations for him are so low that if he doesn’t literally catch fire Thursday night, some will say he was downright presidential.

How sassy Republican Lauren Boebert was able to win her Colorado primary despite a messy divorce, her son’s legal drama, groping and vaping on a date and other antics

In a new district mired in controversy, Rep. Lauren Boebert faces a crowded primary on Tuesday.

The ardent Colorado Republican switched from the 3rd to the 4th Congressional District to run for former Rep. Ken Buck’s most reliable Republican seat in the upcoming election after barely prevailing over her Democratic opponent Adam Frisch in the last election.

On Tuesday, he will face state Reps. Mike Lynch and Richard Holtorf, conservative activist and radio host Deborah Flora, Logan County Commissioner and former state Senate President Pro Tempore Jerry Sonnenberg, and banking executive Peter Yu.

Coloradans who haven’t made their decision — and who may be paying more attention to the controversies surrounding it — could be crucial to Boebert’s survival in Congress.

Biden’s student loan forgiveness plan takes a hit

On Monday, two federal judges in Kansas and Missouri sided with several Republican-led states and blocked the Democrat from moving forward with a key student debt relief initiative.

In total, the Administration has already approved nearly $160 billion in aid to nearly 4.6 million borrowers.

U.S. District Judge Daniel Crabtree in Wichita, Kansas, blocked the U.S. Department of Education from proceeding with parts of a plan that was set to take effect July 1 and was designed to reduce monthly payments and speed up loan forgiveness for millions of Americans.

Trump claims he was ‘tortured’ in Fulton County Jail

A fundraising email from Donald Trump’s election campaign claims the former president was “tortured” when he surrendered to a Georgia jail last August.

They splashed his glowering image on campaign merchandise, including t-shirts, mugs, beers and more.

Before Trump’s first debate with Biden and after his convictions in Manhattan, he is being used again in a campaign email sent on Monday.

The email says: ‘I want you to remember what they did to me. They tortured me in the Fulton County Jail and THEY TOOK MY POLICE PHOTO. Guess what?’

Team member Jamaal Bowman faces disaster in New York

Democratic Rep. Jamaal Bowman is fighting for his political survival as voters head to the polls in New York for the Democratic primary.

The far-left squad member is locked in a contentious primary against George Latimer, and polls show he is hanging by a thread.

The primaries will test whether his support for the Palestinians, his furious criticism of Israel and his progressive policies will lead to his downfall in his Bronx and Westchester district.

Bowman is seeking a third term in a primary that has seen historic levels of spending. The powerful American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) has invested $15 million in the campaign against him.

‘Let’s show fucking AIPAC the power of the fucking South Bronx!’ Bowman shouted Saturday at a rally with fellow progressive ‘Squad’ member Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Democratic Socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt.
