President Donald Trump’s upset win over Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election was devastating to the left because they ignored the rallies and believed the early polls. Is history about to repeat itself?
It may, according to a Washington Examiner report that shows Democratic candidate Joe Biden is falling dramatically in the polls and Donald Trump is gaining momentum in the last leg of the presidential race. This looks very much like 2016 all over again.
Wednesday’s Rasmussen Reports’ White House Watch survey showed Biden’s lead narrowing to 49%-46%, bringing it closer to the margin of error than to his previous 12 point lead just two weeks prior. It also marked the first time in a month the former vice president polled below 50% in the weekly survey.
Even the IDB/TIPP survey, which has Biden narrowly ahead with 48.1% to Trump’s 45.6%, is calling it a repeat of 2016. They would know; the IDP/TIPP was one of the few polls that accurately predicted Trump’s Electoral College victory over Clinton (Rasmussen called Hillary’s popular vote lead).
This is not a shock to Republican voters who have been turning out by the thousands to support Trump at his numerous rallies. A side-by-side comparison entrepreneur Scott Fishman tweeted competing Trump and Biden campaign events in a shocking contrast. Even former President Barack Obama can’t get supporters out for Biden.

Trump’s gain comes after Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s Senate Judiciary Committee confirmation hearings. They were mostly uneventful, save for the usual Democrat posturing and hyperbolic hysteria over the supposed threat to abortion rights and healthcare.
News of Biden’s son Hunter and his shady business dealings and alleged kickbacks to his dear old dad may also be taking its toll. Despite the coordinated social media effort to quash the New York Post story, news continues to trickle out. It’s only a matter of time before that information dam breaks wide open on the scandal.
Trump voters will still need to turn out on Election Day. However, it’s looking today like Trump just might pull off another 2016, sending Biden back to his basement hidey-hole for good.
