    Trump trailing Biden by just over 6 points in RCP national average

    President Trump has been narrowing the gap in recent weeks with Democratic challenger Joe Biden both in national polling and in some key battlegrounds — a development his new campaign manager is crediting in part to his relaunched coronavirus briefings.

    This is not to say the president is in comeback territory. His approval ratings remain deeply underwater, and he's trailed Biden in virtually every national poll since the beginning of the year, even before the coronavirus pandemic, racial unrest and more presented an unprecedented test to his presidency.

    Continued below.

    If Trump is trailing Biden by 6 points that probably really means Trump is leading by 5.

    I agree with this...This is not to say the president is in comeback territory.

    How much I don't know, but I'd say there is definitely something to that.

    The "something" is the skewing of the data.

    The networks should stop televising the briefings unless the President relinquishes the stage and allows Dr Fauci and Dr Birx to speak rather than throwing them under the Trump bus - the self-proclaimed "stable genius" should not be given a venue to make statements about the Pandemic that are patently false and not based on science!

    Taking into account that President Trump has
    a lot to consider regarding the fight against CV we think that he has done a Great Job.

    That's why I'll be very, very surprised to see if Biden even debates Trump.

    Speculating on Biden's mental fitness indicates how desperate Trump and his supporters are to find an issue, any issue, that has traction with the American public!

    For the whole month of July, the Trump Campaign failed to air one political ad that even acknowledged that the CONVID-19 Pandemic existed!

    This Pandemic and its economic repercussions are the defining issues in the lives of most Americans - flooding the airways with political ads designed to only contribute to the nation's fears while failing to even acknowledge the existence of COVID-19 is self-serving at best and contributes nothing to the best interests of the country!

    Personal attacks directed at Biden is an open admission that the Trump Campaign has already given up on providing the nation with a positive message - that it will only double-down on a steady diet of negative, divisive campaigning from now until November!

    I can think of many reasons why he should not, he is going to get beat, the cost of his programs and their failure to serve the needs of the working class will come out, his record is going to be exposed, and his mental condition is going to be obvious.

    The cards are stacked against Biden and he has forgotten (long ago) how to even play the game.
