This Sunday morning, the headline at NBC News blares:
Do you believe it?
Do you believe national polls?
Do you believe national polls after most got it so wrong in 2016?
Do you believe national polls when it’s well-known that many people don’t respond to polls or intentionally mislead the pollster?
With those questions in mind, read this report from NBC and feel free to share your thoughts in the Comments section further down this page. We read all comments!
According to NBC News, “Joe Biden’s national lead over President Donald Trump nearly doubled after Tuesday’s presidential debate, with voters saying by a 2-to-1 margin that Biden has the better temperament to be president, according to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.
“The poll was conducted in the two days after the unruly and insult-filled Sept. 29 debate, but before Trump tested positive for Covid-19 and was hospitalized Friday at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.
“The Democratic nominee is now ahead of Trump by 14 points among registered voters, 53 percent to 39 percent — up from his 8-point lead in the previous poll before the debate.
“That 14-point advantage represents Biden’s largest lead in the NBC News/WSJ poll during the entirety of the 2020 presidential campaign; his previous high was 11 points in July.”
