With a hat tip to “allahpundit” (I hate the offensiveness of that name) at hotair.com:
-The average of national polls on August 6th has Joe Biden ahead of Donald Trump by 6.4%;
-The average of national polls on August 6th, 2016, had Hillary Clinton ahead of Donald Trump by 6.3% – virtually identical;
-And little more than a week ago, on July 27th, the average of national polls had Biden ahead by 9.3% – which means he lost about one-third of his entire lead during that short period of time.
What does this tell us?
One thing it tells us is that the people who were counting Trump out based on polling in July, for an election that takes place in November, look ridiculous – a fact I made note of in several blogs during the month.
And another thing it tells us is that the strategy of using COVID-19 to hide Joe Biden from the public, so they can’t hear him speak (which, given his diminished mental acuity would be a disaster) is not working.
What will Democrats do about this?
Helluva question. I don’t know the answer. Do you?
