Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Well, there's this RealClearPolitics piece quoted by Frank, purportedly showing Trump doing better than in 2016 in the "top battleground states", like Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania; or Florida. Not sure what to make of that, or even whether Trump needs to carry all these states he did win in 2016, some by less than 20,000 votes, if I remember.

Yes, the Repubs lost a lot of votes in these states in the 2018 midterms, but the picture for this year is still murky.

RealClearPolitics is a Right Wing propaganda outfit.

I don't read the articles there. The link is just an average of polls in battleground states comparing Trump vs. Biden to Trump vs. Hillary. It's as good or bad as the underlying polls.

Overall, RCP is showing Biden up 7%, compared to 7.5% when I wrote the story. Nothing statistically significant, and well beyond the margin of error even allowing for Trump's electoral college advantage. But Trump is still doing 1% better than he was against Hillary at this stage in the campaign.

Make of that what you will.
