And, so far this morning, following White House Chief of Staff remarks yesterday and the 60 Minutes broadcast last night, the DJIA has fallen 520 points this morning.

We all know that polls can be wrong and polls can change rapidly. Some have indeed been changing significantly (especially in the Senate races in Arizona, where a generous lead for the Democrat up until a week ago has switched to him seeming to be losing now, though by an amount within the margin of error; or South Carolina, where Lindsay Graham keeps flipping back and forth between winning and losing by small margins; or for some Presidential race close-calls like Florida and Arizona that keep moving back and forth).

Nonetheless, to the extent you can trust them, the polls in non-battleground states have been quite stable. They always narrow (the race gets closer) in the last couple of weeks, but they haven't changed much this time.

If you take the current (most recent) polls in each state, and count only states where one candidate leads by more than 5%, Biden has 279 electoral votes (with 270 needed to win). This map has been mostly unchanged for weeks.

If we credit each candidate with any state they are leading at the moment, no matter how small the lead, it's Biden 378 to Trump 143 - but, of course some of these could change and some of them are too close to be statistically clear. Most of them, though, have stayed pretty much the same all month. (Arizona and Iowa have been tied across various polls for several days. Texas is nearly a tie but, for the last few days has tipped blue, which would be a stunning reversal.)

If we try to repeat this for the Senate race, we run into the problem that many states have no recent polls. To our advantage, though, the "missing" states are those that have very little question about the outcome - they nearly always vote one way and nothing unusual is happening this time.

If we take those races where somebody is leading in excess of 5 percentage points plus those where there are no recent polls but no real question of who is winning, it shows 48 Dems and 43 Reps in the Senate.

If you add all cases where polls show anybody ahead at all, no matter how small the gap, then you get 51 Dems and 48 Reps (and one undecided); but these are volatile numbers in some cases.

It's still a horse race.

Ah....
Yes it is.
You can say that again.

The urge/drive/ need for gambling, betting .......seeing the "Vegas Odds".......on things .......things that are so very important, so very personal....to some
And its treated as a parlor game and entertainment by those onloojers.

It almost makes me not want to vote because I know who ever I Vote for....Im just securing a winning ticket for some Vegas player who really couldnt care less about my beloved country.

Today is the first day I've seen in the entire (post-convention) campaign when the most recent polls do not show Biden over 270 electoral votes based on states where someone has a lead in excess of 5%.

This may be a daily fluctuation. Not all polls are equal quality or equal neutrality. I don't have the resources to track trends in individual polls. But a bunch of new ones came in yesterday that, on balance, take Biden down a notch. For example, yesterday's Spry Strategies poll (which I don't know which may not be a major poll) shows Biden with only a 2% tie nationally, which is so far within the margin of error that it might as well be 0%.

Using only the most recent major poll in each state, regardless of who took it, and counting only states where one candidate is more than 5% ahead, Biden only shows 249 electoral votes (to Trump's 119).

This comes concurrent with other information showing how confidence in Biden. Yesterday, according to news reports I saw, British bookies posted 50-to-1 odds against Trump, which is in the same direction as the Vegas odds Steve has been posting (but a much larger gap). The stock market has dropped several points in the last three days (so far another 800 points this morning almost) and coronavirus cases are surging nationally. These are all pro-Biden statistics.

But from polls of how people say they have voted or are going to vote, for today at least, he is down a shocking amount.
