United States election: Joe Biden hits Donald Trump where it hurts

United States election: Joe Biden hits Donald Trump where it hurts

Dillon said that although many national polls show a widening lead for the Democratic candidate, polls can lack precision or be faulty, which appeared to be the case in 2016.

Days after recovering from the coronavirus and just two and a half weeks before the election on November 3, Trump is holding rallies around the country to try to secure the states he won four years ago.

"This race is far closer than some of the punditry we're seeing on Twitter and on TV would suggest", Dillon wrote.

Biden's campaign manager also warned that while the campaign is seeing "robust leads" nationally, it's only up by a few points in certain key states, including Arizona and North Carolina, and "we need to campaign like we're trailing" in the polls.

Before the competing town halls, it had been widely expected that Trump would score a higher Nielsen rating, an estimate of the total number of viewers for a particular television program, than the former vice president since Biden's town hall only aired on ABC but the president's also appeared on NBC's sibling cable channels.

Dillon also made similar comments earlier in the week on social media.

"Please take the fact that we are not ahead by double digits", she said.

"I am not going to feel so good, maybe I will have to leave the country, I don't know", Trump said.

She predicted that the Trump campaign would throw "the kitchen sink at us" in the final stretch and called on supporters to continue volunteering and donating.

The campaign now has $432 million to spend on getting Biden elected, it said.
