All eyes are on the polls, whether one believes them or not. They have become the cocaine of American politics – sometimes altering reality, but an addiction that many cannot overcome. To that end, the White House Watch by Rasmussen, which began in earnest in July, has finally flipped.
To date, Mr. Biden has held the lead – sometimes commanding but lately fading. And now it appears President Trump has the edge 48% to 47%. This indicates a photo finish lies ahead if these numbers stay in place. But what if this data represents a trend for the president, that this could be the start of a Red Wave?
Last week Rasmussen’s White House Watch had Joe Biden leading 49% to 46%. The week before it was Biden 50% and Trump 45%. The final poll of September carrying over to October demonstrated a strong 12-point lead by the challenger – 52% to 40%.
