Biden Campaign Admits Polling Numbers Are Inflated: “We Are Not Ahead by Double Digits”

Headlines Politics U.S.

Even the Joe Biden campaign is admitting that national poll numbers showing Biden ahead by double digits are inflated.

“Please take the fact that we are not ahead by double digits,” Biden’s campaign manager Jen O’Malley said Friday, according to a New York Times reporter. “Those are inflated national public polling numbers.”

Polls released this week by NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist and NBC News/Wall Street Journal show Biden ahead of Trump in national polls by 11%.

Even Rupert Murdoch, Chairman of News Corp (Fox News’ parent company) predicted a “landslide” victory for Biden.

National polls, along with Murdoch, were also famously against Donald Trump during the 2016 campaign.
