For several years, both the media and the political establishment have constantly claimed that Joe Biden would destroy Donald Trump in a general election.
The same thing happened in the runup to the 2016 election, with countless polls being released which made Trump look much weaker than he actually was.
A favorite trick of the pollsters was to simply oversample Democrats in the poll. After all, if I ask a group of 100 Democrats who they support, I doubt it’ll end up being Trump.
Now, however, there’s only so much that bias can help the leftists. Right now, a Politico/Morning Consult poll of nearly 2,000 registered voters has the hypothetical election between Biden and Trump down to just a 5% spread… with a 2% margin of error.
The spread is about half of what it was just a few months ago – a massively bad sign for Biden.
Considering these are just registered voters and not likely voters, the true numbers are likely even more in Trump’s favor.
Considering polls are almost always designed to be against Trump, then he very well could be ahead right now – and that’s before he even gets fully started with his campaigning.
In the end, polls are largely meaningless this far out. But they are useful in learning how dishonest, manipulative, and power hungry the elites are. That’s the lesson for today’s poll.
Don’t expect the polls to get more accurate the closer we get to the election. If anything, we might see an election with even more comically inaccurate, politically-charged polling than ever before.
