    New CNN Poll: Presidential Race Tightens, Biden Up By Only 4%

    That’s a drop of 10% for Biden lead in the last month, and in battleground states, it’s essentially a dead heat with Biden up by 1%

    A CNN poll conducted by SSRS released this morning has Democrats freaking out, showing that Joe Biden’s national lead has narrowed by 10% in the past month, and now is down to 4%. And that’s among “registered voters” not “likely voters” so enthusiasm for Trump, which has exceeded Biden in most polls, isn’t a factor.

    Time will tell if it’s an outlier, but it is CNN so people can’t claim Trump rigged the poll. A WaPo-ABC poll, also of registered voters, also released this morning shows Biden maintaining an 11% lead.

    Here are some topline findings from the CNN poll summarized by PoliticalPolls twitter account:

    Very significantly, race is essentially a dead heat in battleground stated:

    And Trump is surging among non-white voters:

    One more interesting finding. There’s someone who’s never heard of Trump:

    Democrats are getting worried:

    How to make sense of CNN and WaPo/ABC being so far apart? First explanation: Polls of registered voters are basically garbage, particularly at this point. Second explanation, no one really knows what the situatoin is — it’s likely Biden has a lead, but it’s nothing like the double- or high-single digit lead used to demoralize Trump supporters.

    Verdict: Hillary Clinton is still not president.

    To believe that Biden is ahead in the Presidential race, you have to believe the the majority of registered Democrats are in favor of where the Democrat leadership is taking the country and that the support the riots that the Democrat leadership refuses to speak against.

    This election is looking a lot like 1968.

    Take nothing for granted. The hell with the polls. Get out and vote, those are the numbers that matter. Let’s not forget what the polls told us in 2016. They’re quite unreliable, to say the least.
