In the last two election cycles, reelection polls have underestimated electoral support for President Donald Trump. But pollsters did not create the expectation that horse race polling will elucidate exactly what is to come on Election Day all by themselves.

The media, polling aggregators, forecasters and consumers are all part of the problem, and all need to participate in the solution. As I have watched and participated in the field in all four capacities over the last 15 years, the electoral polling industry has developed into an ecosystem: Pollsters want the media attention that comes with putting out reliable election estimates and getting picked up in aggregates and forecast models.

And as consumers, we think that since all the information in the world is at our fingertips 24 hours a day, future election outcomes should be, too. Pollsters have already begun the introspection required by the pattern of misses, some more dire in their conclusions than others, but it is not clear that any part of the ecosystem fully recognizes how intertwined all of their actions are in perpetuating the idea that polls are predictive.

Clearer and more prominent discussions of uncertainty in press releases would also serve the goal. Aggregators and forecasters can help the overall polling ecosystem by using only high-quality data and thereby playing a gatekeeping role.

For example, the final Iowa Poll conducted by Seller & Co. in 2020, which was an apparent outlier that turned out to be correct, had little impact on win probabilities. To fill the news cycle without focusing on the horse race, media should spend more time on the non-electoral results in polls.

(Pollsters: Don’t lead with the election in your press release if you want the media to look at the other results.) Voters in America will decide on 3 November whether Donald Trump remains in the White House for another four years.

The Republican president is being challenged by Democratic Party nominee Joe Biden, who is best known as Barack Obama's vice-president but has been in US politics since the 1970s. As election day approaches, polling companies will be trying to gauge the mood of the nation by asking voters which candidate they prefer.

His winning margin in Iowa, Ohio and Texas was between 8-10% back then but it looks much closer in all three this time. The first, on 29 September, was a chaotic affair, with Mr Trump's combative approach stamping out any chance of a real debate.

A CNN poll found 53% of viewers thought the Democrat had done a better job in the debate, while 39% went with Mr Trump. A YouGov snap poll was similar, with 54% saying Mr Biden had won compared to 35% for the president.

We only had a couple of days to mull over the first debate before President Trump's bombshell tweet in the early hours of 2 October revealed he and the first lady had tested positive for coronavirus. While the pandemic has dominated headlines in the US since the start of the year, the focus had shifted to the Supreme Court after the death of long-serving Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg in September.

So Mr Trump's positive coronavirus test put his response to the pandemic, which has claimed the lives of more than 230,000 people in the US, back under the spotlight. According to data from an ABC News/Dipsos poll, just 35% of Americans approve of how the president has handled the crisis.

A similar Yahoo News/YouGov poll found that about half of respondents believed he could have avoided contracting the disease altogether if he had practiced greater social distancing and worn a face mask. Most national polls did have Hillary Clinton ahead by a few percentage points, but that doesn't mean they were wrong, since she won three million more votes than her rival.

He continues to maintain that he won the election, despite the fact that every single state has certified last year’s results, confirming his loss. Even the U.S. Supreme Court, where three of the outgoing president’s picks sit, rejected one of the many Trump -supported fights against the election outcome.

As election day approaches, polling companies will be trying to gauge the mood of the nation by asking voters which candidate they prefer. With that caveat aside, Joe Biden has been ahead of Donald Trump in most national polls since the start of the year.

For Mr Trump, it's the battleground states he won big in 2016 that his campaign team will be most worried about. His winning margin in Iowa, Ohio and Texas was between 8-10% back then but it looks much closer in all three this time.

The first, on 29 September, was a chaotic affair, with Mr Trump's combative approach stamping out any chance of a real debate. A CNN poll found 53% of viewers thought the Democrat had done a better job in the debate, while 39% went with Mr Trump.

But this year there's even more uncertainty than normal due to the coronavirus pandemic and the effect it's having on both the economy and how people will vote in November, so all polls should be read with some skepticism. Development by Katie Haskell, Marcos Gurgle, Steven Connor and Ships Sarah.
