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.
All Biden really needs to do right now to win is hold onto the voters that he has.
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.
Clinton, however, had almost universally negative net favorability ratings in the final month and nine days of the 2016 election. That is, she was more disliked than liked.
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.
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.
Apparently, people just didn’t believe the polls then.
Today, those same polls have Biden ahead and in a clear position to win barring a development in the final nine days.
