Presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden leads incumbent President Donald Trump by more than nine points nationally, according to the Real Clear Politics polling average. Trump is at a disadvantage presiding over an economic recession, a global pandemic and nationwide protests against police brutality.

For many Democrats, however, that pattern evokes the election cycle four years ago when Trump pulled off an upset victory against then-Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, the Washington Post reported late in June. Although virtually every major poll predicted a Clinton victory, Trump won. While the Biden campaign is riding a wave of confidence, they should look carefully at all components of the current polling.
