Are you serious?
A new poll conducted by the Public Religion Research Institute suggests that Joe Biden is leading President Trump nationally by 18 points.
The poll states that Biden is leading Trump 56% to 38%.
This poll had to be taken in another universe because there’s no way Trump is just getting 38% of votes!
USA, Public Religion Research Institute poll:
Biden (Dems, centre-left): 56%
Trump (GOP, conservative): 38%

The Public Religion Research Institute reported these details about their survey:
PRRI developed two likely voter models to measure potential support for each candidate under two turnout scenarios. If voter turnout looks similar to 2016 (55% turnout), the survey finds Biden besting Trump by 14 percentage points (54% to 40%). If voter turnout is higher (70% turnout), as multiple indicators suggest is likely, Biden leads Trump by 18 percentage points (56% to 38%).
A supplemental survey of 1,070 adults using the same methodology was conducted Oct. 9–12, 2020, to assess likely turnout, presidential candidate choice, and motivation for voting (for/against the candidate). The margin of error, including the design effect, for that survey is +/- 4.0 percentage points at the 95% level of confidence.
Seriously, sample size just 751 on 300 milion population?

Almost every poll had Hillary Clinton being president in 2016 and we all saw what happened.
Polls have been wrong once
