Even Biden’s own team members don’t believe the polls.
Joe Biden’s campaign manager Jen O’Malley Dillon, at a summit, surprisingly said that Biden’s most recent poll results don’t exactly prove he has a double-digit lead.
Jen O’Malley Dillon really said, “Please take the fact that we are not ahead by double digits”.
In the most recent NBC News and Washington Post poll says Biden has an 11 point lead but it looks like Biden’s own campaign manager doesn’t believe that!
Biden campaign manager Jen O'Malley Dillon, in grassroots summit, emphasizes that their polling does NOT show a double-digit lead nationally.

Biden’s campaign manager warns ‘Trump can still win’ the election https://t.co/IWEV4sXzJF

Fox News covered the story and had this to share:
The Biden campaign sent out a three-page memo to supporters Saturday warning that President Trump can still win and the race is “neck and neck” in certain critical battleground states, including Arizona and North Carolina.
Jen O’Malley Dillon, Joe Biden’s campaign manager, cautioned supporters against complacency, pointing to uncertain polls and lessons learned from Trump’s upset win in 2016.
“[T]he reality is that this race is far closer than some of the punditry we’re seeing on Twitter and on TV would suggest,” Dillon wrote in the memo obtained by Fox News.
Dillon cautioned that polling showing Biden ahead may not be accurate.
“[E]ven the best polling can be wrong and that variables like turnout mean that in a number of critical swing states we are fundamentally tied,” Dillon wrote.

The Daily Mail added to the story also:
Joe Biden’s campaign manager has warned supporters against complacency, adding President Trump ‘can still win this race’ and that recent national polls showing the candidate leading by double digits are ‘inflated.’
In a memo obtained by Washington Post and Fox News, Campaign manager Jen O’Malley Dillon told supporters they shouldn’t count Trump out of the race just yet.
‘We cannot become complacent because the very searing truth is that Donald Trump can still win this race,’ Dillon wrote. ‘And every indication we have shows that this thing is going to come down to the wire.’
She added the contentious race between Biden and Trump was ‘neck and neck’ – despite recent polling numbers that favored Biden.
It’s totally surprising that Biden’s campaign manager downplayed the polls.
Maybe she decided to actually live in reality unlike other liberals saying Biden will win in a landslide.
