Real Clear Politics doesn't show anything resembling a 20 point deficit.

Interestingly enough,  Trump's job approval was higher in late September than Obama's at the same time in his admin.  MSM has been hammering Trump pretty steadily over the manufactured "Quid Pro Quo", so that may have changed since then.

As far ashim trailing the dem candidates by wide margins?   Color me skeptical.

So the 2016 polls were wrong also

All except one had Hillary winning

Popular vote does not mean electoral college votes

I expect many voters don't want to admit voting for Trump. In our house it always starts a war of words. Also it has been noted that a lot of Dems have been showing up for Trump rallies. When questioned many of these people say they are Dems but haven't voted for many yrs. All of a sudden they are interested in Trump rallies. Have you noticed how far some of these people will drive to a Trump rally. Have you noticed how soon these people get in line before the rally even starts. Many line up before dawn breaks. Have you noticed the size of Trump rallies. The over flow watches on giant screens. These are people who will most likely vote Trump

This isn't somebody who isn't generating a lot of attention. I know Sanders had a large rally just recently but does Sanders draw large crowds such as Trump does to every rally.

Can Sanders or Biden go the distance

Wareen is so far left her policies leave many people a bit unsure what her policies mean in reality. Some have noticed Wareen is all about sound bites and not policy that makes sense. She will not admit her policies mean a tax hike on the middle class. That question will stay with her. She keeps saying the rich, [as in a sound bite] but some are finally starting to realize the rich don't have enough money

 She is not a farmer friend, for sure, so what about Wareens chances in fly over country

Finally, will the Dem candidate be a unifyrer and bring most Dems under the same tent

I dunno

A recurring  theme on social media. "Instead of bashing Trump, list what you like about the dem candidates".  So far, the response has been "crickets"... Every one of them supports policies and plans that concern a majority of voters, if not scaring them outright.  And there is a divide in the dem party.  A large and growing segment is outright socialist.  The remainder is somewhat closer to the center but still left leaning.  No candidate can motivate the entire group and the independents are not showing much interest.

The one unifying cry is "ANYONE BUT TRUMP", and the left is capitalizing on that with endless investigations and fruitless impeachment efforts. Whether that motivates enough voters remains to be seen.
