That's the only balanced, and thererfore well thought out comment in the thread so far John. The author of the main article has obviously forgotten what happened in 2016 and is making exactly the same error as Hillary supporters did then, of looking at the headline figures from polling and ignoring the detail.

It appears that once again the polls are over sampling likely Democrat voters by a considerable margin, I can't speak for American voters but in Britain where similar things happened in the 2016 EU referendum and the 2019 General Election for which polling predicted a close result but the Conservative won by big majorities, after the even polling firms reported that while over 50% of likely Labour voters had responded positively when approached to take part in the poll, four in five likely Conservative voters declined to answer questions.

None of this suggests another Trump victory is on the cards, but it does suggest the outcome of the election is no more a foregone conclusion than in 2016
