CNN is notorious for distorting the truth about all things Trump, but even the famously liberal news outlet was forced to confess that the tide is turning against Biden in the polls.
Democrats and never-Trumpers have touted polls that show Biden taking a commanding lead in the general election, but as the Trump administration cracks down on violence in American cities and liberals continue to self-immolate, Trump is making a comeback.
Trump supporters have always known that the polls were lying about Biden’s lead, but it’s telling that liberals can no longer lie to themselves.
CNN’s senior political analyst Harry Enten wrote on Thursday that Biden still has the “upper hand” in some battleground states, but admitted that “while Biden has maintained the advantage, Trump has one thing going for him: His position is no longer deteriorating.”
A look at the polls shows that even as coronavirus cases and deaths rise, Trump remains within striking distancing of Biden. An Iowa poll out Wednesday from Monmouth University makes the point well. Trump comes in with 48% to Biden’s 45%, a 3-point margin and a result within the poll’s margin of error.
The current difference between the polls at this point and the result isn’t wide enough to suggest Biden has this locked away given how much polls have moved from this point to the election historically. Yes, Biden has held a relatively steady lead, which makes him a clear favorite.
But in a year in which we are facing unprecedented circumstances, Trump is staying in the hunt.
Enten’s assessment is decidedly less confident than liberal analysis from the last several weeks. Pollsters and pundits scoffed at the possibility of Trump reclaiming the lead ahead of the election, but a slew of new polls prove that Biden is far from taking the White House.
