There IS a pandemic going on….
No matter how Donald Trump tries to ignore it?
Out DEALING with the virus has effected out lives….
Trump can talk about other things all day …
But EVERYBODY is aware they have to deal with wearing a mask that Trump won’t….
This isn’t 2016 ….
Things ARE different ….
And the more Trump tries to bury the virus as an issue?
The worst things become for him…
A Washington Post average of polls conducted immediately before the two conventions had Biden leading Trump 51 percent to 42 percent. With polls released this week after the Republican convention, we can update those numbers.
Biden leads Trump 51 percent to 42 percent.
That things didn’t change much shouldn’t be a surprise. The race has been remarkably static, with Trump’s daily high in FiveThirtyEight’s average of polls never beating Biden’s low. Biden came into the conventions with an unusually large lead, and he comes out of them with one, too.
Oh, and speaking of enthusiasm? Trump regularly touts the record enthusiasm in his base. In CNN’s poll, that is clear, including that 87 percent of his supporters say there is no way they will change their minds about whom they will vote for.
Among supporters of Biden, the figure is 94 percent.
