I call BS, as there’s hardly anything in the public polling data to support this. In fact, North Carolina was named last week by Biden campaign manager Jen O’Malley Dillon as one of two states where the race is much closer than national polling would have you believe. (Arizona was the other.) Team Joe sees a three-point lead in NC, which almost exactly matches the public polls. Four years ago, Trump performed nearly three points better in North Carolina on Election Day than the polls expected.
So why would his campaign be sweating a three-point deficit now, to the point where they supposedly believe NC is a lost cause?
Doesn’t add up, *unless* there’s been a very recent break towards Biden there that the public polls haven’t picked up yet. The most recent public survey concluded on October 14, five days ago.
