9 dae om te gaan: Biden's lead over Trump is holding, while Clinton's was collapsing at this point

The clock is running out on President Donald Trump s’n chances for a comeback. He continues to trail former Vice President Joe Biden nationally and in the key swing states with just nine days to go.

But perhaps most worrisome for the President: Trump’s clearly behind his 2016 pace. By this point four years ago, he was rapidly closing the gap with Hillary Clinton. No such advancements can be seen in the 2020 polling against Biden.
Nou dadelik, Biden is up by oor 9 aan 10 punte nationally, depending on the average you examine. He is, importantly, verby 50%. Biden’s edge may be down a point or so from early October, though it is well within the historical average from the beginning of the year.
Die 2016 veldtog, aan die ander kant, was in great flux at this time. Among a bunch of factors, die James Comey letterinvestigating emails on Anthony Weiner’s laptop that were potentially related to a probe of Hillary Clinton’s use of a private serverhad just been published by this point in the 2016 veldtog. No such bombshells of that magnitude have come out this year.
    Clinton’s advantage was down to only about 4 punte in the national average 9 days from Election Day 2016. Her advantage had been as high as 7 points with about 21 dae om te gaan. Clinton’s 45% vote share was low enough that it left Trump with a lot of room in the final week of the campaign to corral voters who favored neither candidate at this point.
    All Biden really needs to do right now to win is hold onto the voters that he has.
    But the differences go beyond the national horse race polls. 'N ABC News/Ipsos poll taken after the final debate between Biden and Trump and published on Sunday found that Trump’s net favorability (favorableunfavorable) rating is a very weak -22 punte.
    The fact that Trump has a deeply negative net favorability rating is nothing new. It’s been the norm during his presidency and was true during his 2016 bid for the White House as well.
    The more interesting nugget in the poll is that Biden’s net favorability was +1 punt. A positive net favorability rating is the norm for Biden these days.
    Clinton, egter, had almost universally negative net favorability ratings in the final month and nine days of the 2016 verkiesing. Dit is, she was more disliked than liked.
    To pull off a win in 2016, Clinton had to win over voters who disliked both Trump and her. Clinton ended up losing die 18% of the electorate who had an unfavorable view of Trump and her by 17 punte.
    Vandag, Biden doesn’t need to do anything like that. All he needs to do is win the voters who like him. Our last CNN/SSRS poll had Biden beating Trump by a 93% aan 6% margin among likely voters who had a favorable view of Biden.
    Three state polls out on Sunday from CBS News/YouGov likewise indicate that there has been little movement in the polls toward Trump. Much of these polls were taken before Thursday’s debate, though they were completed on Fridayafter the debate.
    What’s key to note here is that they are almost identical to what CBS News/YouGov found the last time they were in the field.
    In Florida, Biden’s at 50% aan Trump s’n 48%. Verlede maand, dit was 48% Biden to 46% vir Trump.
    In Georgia, Biden’s at 49% aan Trump s’n 49%. Verlede maand, dit was 47% Trump to 46% for Biden.
    In Noord-Carolina, Biden’s at 51% aan Trump s’n 47%. Verlede maand, it was Biden 48% aan Trump s’n 46%.
    (Democrat Cal Cunningham maintains a 6 point lead over Republican Sen. Thom Tillis in this poll of the state’s Senate race. This is down from a 10 point advantage last month in a race key to Democratshopes to retake the Senate.)
    I should point out that all these results are within the margin of error, though they are consistent with the polling averages giving Biden 2-3 point edges in Florida and North Carolina and a dead even race in Georgia.
    Keep in mind, Trump almost certainly needs to carry all of these states to win. Biden would like to win at least one, though it’s easy to draw him maps without taking any of them.
    The fact that the state polls are not showing rapid movement to Trump is again contrary to what was occurring in 2016. Soos political analyst Bill Scher has demonstrated, the state polls had Trump surging in the final weeks of the 2016 verkiesing.
      Blykbaar, people just didn’t believe the polls then.
      Vandag, those same polls have Biden ahead and in a clear position to win barring a development in the final nine days.
