Democrats have already called the November election for Joe Biden based on a slew of polls awarding Biden up to a 10-point lead.
However, a new Democracy Institute/Sunday Express poll released on Tuesday completely destroys that narrative, showing that Trump and Biden are tied in the 2020 election race. The mainstream media wants you to think that it’s over for Trump, but this new poll changes everything.
The poll of 1,500 likely voters conducted between July 1 and July 3 showed that Trump and Biden each receive 47 percent of the national popular vote, with only six percent undecided.
The results differ dramatically from those of the presidential matchup polls featured in the Real Clear Politics Average of Polls, which currently show Biden leading Trump by nine points.
Democracy Institute founder and executive director Patrick Basham told Breitbart that the reason the poll produced such dramatically different results than most other polls is that DI was able to identify the “shy” Trump voters — voters that have recognized the social consequences of publically supporting Trump, but will likely pull the handle for him in November.
Democracy Insitute also correctly predicted the outcome of the 2016 general election. “We’ve identified a ‘low burn’ reaction among Trump supporters who’ve seen public shaming of those who support the president,” Basham explained. “Ever since the May protest riots many Trump supporters are simply unwilling to face the risk and public ridicule of telling even an anonymous person on the phone they plan on voting for the president.”
We asked a number of undecided voters more probing questions. We start out with 10 percent undecided. But then, after the additional questions, undecided comes down to about 6 percent, with half of those who first identified as undecided coming down for Trump. All of these undecideds go to Trump with other questioning.
Additionally, most pollsters do not account for voter enthusiasm. Donald Trump has record-high voter enthusiasm, in exact opposition to Biden, whose base is historically apathetic.
“There’s no one for Biden who’s not happy to tell you they support him,” Basham said. “There’s tremendous openness about support for Biden, though there is low enthusiasm. But among rabidly pro-Trump voters, there are some who are shy about saying they are for him.”
The number speak for themselves. 77 percent of Trump voters are strongly enthusiastic about Trump, while only 43 percent of Biden voters can say the same. Even more telling is the fact that 71 percent of Biden voters are only voting for him to cast a “negative vote against” Trump.
