Report Trump's Poll Numbers Pose Challenge for Biden in US Federal Politics Posted Tuesday at 11:25 PM 1 hour ago, impartialobserver said: Polling numbers this far out are not especially meaningful. This is akin to the "way too early top 25 rankings" sports experts issue for the upcoming year. These are done 6 to 7 months before the start of the season. Individual polls aren't meaningfull but multiple polls over time show trend lines and much can be gleaned from those. Which is why political parties pay close attention to them and pay for their own polling on top. The trends appear to be biden sinking a bit more, voters aren't happy with him at all, and trump has gained support but has hit a ceiling and isn't picking up new people but isn't losing old ones. Biden has to find a way to restore confidence or he'll lose, trump has to find a way to widen his appeal and climb above that ceiling or he'll lose. It's too close to say which is going to pull it off. There's probably more paths to victory for trump, but that doesn't mean he'll be able to walk them.
