Nationally for sure, and in many swing states.

I have no doubt that Biden will win the popular vote, and that winning swing states, and thus the electoral college, could come down to whether third party candidates can peel off a few thousand votes from either Biden or Trump.

3-5% is very manageable.. Pa is a 100% swing state.. Remember, Trump won it in 2016, and Biden only won by over a point in 2020.

Trump will win PA. Unless there are some scams at the voting booth. Which, unfortunately, is highly possible.

and the maga terrorist ain't gonna beat Scranton Joe. The President kicked the rapist to the curb in 2020 and he'll do it again in November, I predict, by a slightly higher margin

Polls are being discretited by almost every election being held now. This is propaganda. Something isn't right in their factoring. And no, I don't think it will be this close, especially not in PA, where Democrats just came out of a mid-term election in which they swept every statewide race by margins way outside what the "polls" said they would.
