The key point here that the article points out, as the polls now do not look like a mere repeat of 2016, which detractors love to point to noting that Trump won, despite the polls. What they ignore is that Hillary won the popular vote by 3 million, and the only reason she didn't become president is because Trump won in three key swing states, so their entire argument rises or falls on how well Trump will do in the swing states. If Trump can win by 77.000 votes in the swing states, all dems have to do is win by a greater margin, which will cure, easily, those deficits. And that does seem to be the case, currently. https://www.washingtonpost.com/poli...this-point-bidens-outperforming-obama-clinton While Trump and his allies have consistently raised his unexpected victory in 2016 as a reason to dismiss what the polls say, highlighting national polling pointing to a Clinton win in particular, 2020 doesn’t look like 2016 at this point. Biden’s not only outperforming where Clinton was at the end of the election and relative to where she was at the same point in the race — he’s also outperforming where Barack Obama was nationally and in key swing states in 2008 and 2012.
