    They're not going to be accurate when Trump Republicans going around stealing mail-in ballots out of the boxes that belong to the Democrat candidate they got to cheat to win and that is low down and dirty they run a honest re-election campaign for president the Republican got to cheat in everything they do

    A 45% to 40% lead where the percentage of undecided voters is large (2016) is very different from a 49% to 45% lead where the percentage of undecided voters is small (2020).

    The polls are similar, but the situation is totally different. This isn’t 2016, and America didn’t have 4 years of a felon running this country. BIG difference. Plus, 2018 showed us what the voters think of Right Wingers.

    Why does the Washington Post not give its readers information on the Bidens corruption? Report the truth instead of Democrat propaganda. Did Joe Biden use his troubled son to launder money to the family? Where are your investigate journalists? Hunter Biden's computer is NOT Russian disinformation. According to the FBI, DOJ, and Director Ratcliff this isn't related to Russian disinformation, period. So, WP do your homework and STOP hiding the truth from your readers. Millions from corrupt foreign powers are involved in huge pay to play laundering schemes. Biden is compromised by the Chinese Communist Party. Don't we need to know how deep and wide the Communist Party infiltration into the Biden's bank accounts go? Look up bank transactions, Mansion buying documents, off shore accounts, etc and let's see some objective and transparent reporting for a change. Biden could be a national security risk to our governmemt.

    These polls don't have a good sample of minorities who don't speak English at home and tend to vote for Trump.

    Where is the WaPo oped on Hunter and Joe Biden, and the 10% kickback
    Joe gets from Ukraine?
    Joe is known as the BIG GUY.. the debate on the 25th might be The nail in the Biden and Democratic Party's Coffin..
    It might even drag Barry Hussein Soetoro into the mix, since he was the leader of the nation at the time..
