Negative press doesn't seem to "stick" to Trump though. He may have a bad day, but he's got the next drama of the day to replace it. Bad news should hurt him, but it rarely does. Impeachment, massive pandemic, crazy statements, bold faced lies? Nothing seems to matter with half the country. I don't think they are paying attention.Trump being on the news every hour hasn't been a good thing so far. Its a big reason Biden has such good leads despite not being a fraction as visible. Any normal Republican would probably be a really solid favorite because they would have rallied the country around them during a crisis.
The real concern is how easy is it going to be to vote? If we get a spike around the election than all bets are off in terms of people being comfortable going and standing a line. When you consider the voter suppression that exists anyway its a real concern.
Hopefully the updated poll numbers are available soon, but there's been ups and downs, but the overall trend is going up for him.
