2020 Election Polls Continue To Bash Trump

Note that all six of the candidates mentioned here bet out Trump OVER the margin of error.

That’s not all.

After a devastating 17-state poll conducted by his campaign, Trump was also behind in key states to Biden.

What did Trump do? He told aides to deny that his internal polling showed him trailing Mr. Biden even though he is also trailing in public polls from key states like Texas, Michigan and Pennsylvania.

Sarah Sanders went to great pains to avoid denial:

“Did the president tell his aides to deny that internal polling showed him trailing Joe Biden?” Johns asked Sanders, who briefed reporters on the White House driveway.
“Look, I think the polling got it completely wrong in 2016, I don’t think it’s right now,” Sanders said, seeming to try to veer away from the internal polling topic but also not denying the reported conversation.

“I’m not going to get into a lot of details,” Sanders continued. “But we feel incredibly good about what the president has been able to accomplish in the first two years of his administration.”

Sanders listed what she considers accomplishments by the president, including “unprecedented success,” a booming economy, “making better trade deals” than ever before, and rebuilding the military.

“The president’s got a great story to tell, and we feel very comfortable about where we are,” Sanders said.

Johns tried to get Sanders back on addressing his question.

“This is his internal polling,” he said.

“I’m sorry?” Sanders replied.

“That’s his internal polling,” Johns reiterated.

The press secretary responded: “Again, I’m not worried about polling.”
