Biden Poll Numbers Stay Static for Months as the Basement Strategy Ebbs Momentum
Let’s assume the survey results are, broadly speaking, correct. Right now, the former vice president holds a modest lead: an average of 6.4% in the polling results compiled by Real Clear Politics. That has been remarkably static for the last five months. On March 5, he led by an average of 5.5%. On May 5, it was again 5.5%. On June 5, it had grown to 7.1%. By July 5, it was even bigger at 8.7%.
In short, Mr. Biden’s lead has moved around in a 3-point range for 150 days, in a campaign that has about another 80 days left on it.
