For the "No más" files:

Francis Wilkinson at Bloomberg said:

Four years ago, President Donald Trump’s unlikely victory put the world on notice that the U.S. was slamming the brakes on the 21st century. Last weekend, the White House and Congress defined the 2020 election in the starkest terms yet.

White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows told CNN last Sunday that the White House has given up trying to prevaricate the coronavirus into submission. With new cases spiking across the country, the president’s oft-repeated fairy tale about “rounding the turn” against the virus was murdered and dumped in an unmarked grave. “We’re not going to control the pandemic,” Meadows said. “We are going to control the fact that we get vaccines, therapeutics and other mitigations.”

Meadows’ white flag was preceded by Bloomberg News uncovering more White House infections, this time among the staff of Vice President Mike Pence. At long last, the White House message on the virus was consistent and coherent: There is no White House policy, and there never will be.

From NYT Upshot's Analysis of the day in polls by Nate Cohn

A snapshot of current polling averages:

Wis. +10 Biden
Mich. +9 Biden
Pa. +6 Biden
Ariz. +4 Biden
Fla. +2 Biden
N.C. +2 Biden


Electoral votes counting only states where a candidate leads by 3 or more:

291 Biden 125 Trump

Electoral votes if polling leads translate perfectly to results (they won’t):


357 Biden 181 Trump

Electoral votes if state polls are as wrong as they were in 2016†:

335 Biden 203 Trump

NYT poll averages include all polls collected by FiveThirtyEight. The estimates adjust for a variety of factors, including whether a poll represents likely voters, whether other polls have shifted since a poll was conducted, and whether a pollster has leaned toward one candidate in a state or nationwide. Polls are weighted by recency, sample size, and by whether they're conducted by a firm with a track record of success. More details here. Source for polls: FiveThirtyEight polling database.

† Poll error in 2016 is calculated using averages of state polls conducted within one week of Election Day.
