30 days out and TRump is not at 45 in the pols.

Every day that Trump is not even at 45 % it says, you lose. I remember from the McGovern and Mondale campaigns.

2. Do Polls Really Matter?

I hate to sound like a gloomy gus but Trump and co are not acting like they expect to lose. That should concern us. After all they see the same polls we do. And now all the media is talking about is his "covid" and he's milking it for all he can. No more distracting talk of tax refunds. I don't think this will hurt him long term. While I don't believe in conspiracies I think Trump will use this to his advantage.

4. They're pretty sure someone is going to...

...steal it for them. I think the margin has to be much closer than it is for that to be possible. I hope it stays at least as big as it is.

5. Has ANY presidential campaign ever said publicly, "we expect to lose"...?

I know that Democrats are suffering PTSD after 2016, but let's get real. Projecting enthusiastic confidence until the moment the candidate comes to the podium to concede is standard operational procedure for any campaign, including the ones that lose in a blowout. And, to be frank, I've seen things a lot more subdued in the Trump camp this week, as well as a number of other Republican officeholders and professionals seeming to be laying the groundwork for rationalizing a loss since the first debate ended.

6. Yep!

Their desperate marriage of attempted TRUMP STRONG photo ops and continued negative campaigning suggests a campaign CONVINCED that it's going to lose, and is just throwing shit around in the hope that something, somehow sticks. The whole Trump operation revolves around a phony perception of strength, and they’ve appeared anything but in recent weeks.

7. Polls this wide matter. We're way beyond margin of error.

The only thing that concerns me is that people will look at the polls, assume victory, and not vote.
