    “A new poll released this weekend shows President Donald Trump, the incumbent GOP president, has taken a national and battleground states lead over his Democrat challenger presumptive nominee former Vice President Joe Biden.

    The survey, from the Democracy Institute commissioned by the Sunday Express newspaper, shows Trump leading Biden 48 percent to 46 percent. What’s more, Trump has opened up a bigger lead according to this poll in the crucial battleground states, meaning the president by this pollster’s estimates currently is projected to win 309 electoral votes—more than he did in 2016.”

    This is huge. On virtually every measure Trump is improving. A look at the particulars of the poll at its source is fascinating. Barring something unforeseen Trump is going to win going away.

    It seems that like Dukakis in 1988 that Biden peaked way too early!

    That is a Poll that NOBODY puts any credence in.

    It has about as much credibility as the latest Bat Boy sighting.

    Crucially, President Trump has a lead of 48 percent to 43 percent in the swing states Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin which would put him back in the White House with an electoral college tally of 309 to Biden’s 229.
    The poll has Trump leading in Florida 47 to 45 percent, leading in Minnesota 46 percent to 45 percent, and in New Hampshire 46 percent to 43 percent.

    ^Nobody believes those numbers

    Here is REALITY:

    Trump is TRAILING (in many cases BADLY) in those states.

    You can check out the RCP Averages (made up of Legitimate Pollsters here):

    https://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/latest_polls/elections/

    People just "made up a poll", so that Breitbart could post FAKE News?

    Got it.

    That Polling "organization" has ZERO credibility.

    I am more interested in the right wing tabloid, based out of the UK, that supposedly commissioned this survey.

    The Daily Express is a right-wing daily national middle-market[2] tabloid newspaper in the United Kingdom. Published in London, it is the flagship of Express Newspapers, owned by publisher Reach plc. It was first published as a broadsheet in 1900 by Sir Arthur Pearson. Its sister paper, the Sunday Express, was launched in 1918. In February 2019, it had an average daily circulation of 315,142.

    OMG. Biden is losing! We have to nominate Tulsi Gabbard by acclimation at the convention and save our party from total annilation!

    Yes, MrT, apparently they have quite a sterling "reputation":

    Accusations of xenophobia and hate speech

    They couldn't possibly have an agenda to commission FAKE Poll that Breitbart could publicize?

    Could they?

    A fine upstanding objective publication like that?

    Its starting to look that way. And the poor guy is still delaying who his VP pick will be.

    There were a lot of lefties here who were commenting on the "wisdom" of Biden hunkering in his bunker and refusing to make the news cycle.

    Today one of Bill Clintons campaign advisors warned Biden not to even attempt to debate Trump.

    Dems love the July victory laps for Nov elections. We'll have another month of this crap then after Labor Day "the race will suddenly tighten".

    This poll is about what I figured. And another GOOD POLL FOR TRUMP

    There is nothing about the rapidly failing Biden to suggest that he can defeat an incumbent president with an approval rating of 50 percent.

    You nailed it, Biden will be on CNN withdrawing before I hit "Reply" on this message.

    Uncle Joe, we hardly knew ye. RIP Biden 2020.

    That was actually Yesterday. Joe Lockhart on CNN.

    That story is already Old News. NOT Today. Yesterday.

    Trump is Toast. It isn't even funny.

    And, that Poll is a Complete Joke.

    ^And, Everybody KNOWS it.

    That Said, when I See the RCP Avg. Mirroring those numbers (in that Fake Poll), I might give it a bit of credence.

    But, that will NEVER happen.

    There is a really good chance that Trump could end up with less than 200 EV.

    AJ its happening again, just like 2016.

    Do you remember the day (Sept 11) when Hillary collapsed, was rushed to her daughters pent house, and then emerged "healthy"?

    Lol and she even planted a little kid to run up and hug her.

    Yeah its like that.

    Who are you people who support this disaster?

    He has tens of thousands of documented lies.
    He funnels taxpayer money and campaign money into his private businesses.
    He steals from charity.
    His children steal from charity and can no longer run charities.
    He destroyed an eight year economic expansion and left us in a depression.
    He barely "passed" a dementia test and was so surprised he can't stop bragging about it.
    He is a xenophobe.
    He is a racist.
    His blundering incompetence and malevolence has allowed a pandemic to spread unabated.
    He asked for help from Ukraine in the 2020 election.
    He asked for China's help in the 2020 election.
    He paid a friend to take his SAT and only got into college because of family recommendation.
    He insults everyone.
    He is orange.
    He has allowed Putin to contract US soldier murders without comment.
    He's a coward who refused to serve his country when required.
    No one in his family has served in the military.
    He refuses to release his tax forms (unlike every other president).
    He is ripping the country apart with his incendiary rhetoric.
    He sent his "brown shirts" into US cities to abduct American citizens in violation of the US Constitution.
    He was impeached.
    He should have been removed except senate Republicans put party before country.
    He is a pig who used to walk in on teen girls while they dressed to "check things out"
    He made a habit of stiffing contractors and telling them to sue him or take a percentage.
    He has appointed unqualified people to government posts.
    He has harmed relations with traditional allies.

    and so much more...

    NO, it isn't. Not even close.

    That said, Trump is free to believe whatever he wants.

    If it makes Trump happy to live in abject DELUSION that he actually has a chance, it means little to me.

    Whatever Trump uses as a coping mechanism to soothe his Tiny Paranoid Brain is OK with me.

    BUT, on Jan. 20th, Trump will no longer be President.

    Up until then, I have no problem dealing with Trump's DELUSIONS.

    Hopefully, Trump doesn't have a nervous breakdown from LOSING.

    Disputing the results and being dragged kicking and screaming from the White House can take quite a toll on a man about to turn 75.

    As the link said, its surprising he polling at 20% among black voters, if that's accurate it does indicate he will probably win.

    EXCEPT: It isn't anywhere Near "Accurate".

    Trump would be extremely lucky to duplicate the 8% of the Black Vote that he got 4 year ago.
