- Business Insider 00:27July 21, 2020The presidential polls in 2016 weren't as wrong you think. Here's why you can trust them in 2020.President Trump continues to receive overwhelmingly negative marks from voters on his handling of the COVID-19 pandemic, causing his poll numbers to plummet.
Many Democrats, however, are wary to trust the accuracy of 2020 polls after the 2016 election, in which Trump defeated the heavily favored Democrat Hillary Clinton.
But 2020 is far different from 2016, and there are many reasons to believe that Biden's lead is far more durable than Clinton's was, reducing the chances of a major upset.
Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. President Donald Trump is in one of the worst positions for reelection an incumbent president has ever been in as voters continue to give him overwhelmingly negative ratings for his overall job performance and his handling of the COVID-19 pandemic.
On average, Trump trails former VP Joe Biden by 8.8 percentage points on average in FiveThirtyEight's tracker of national general election polls, a larger and more consistent lead than 2016 nominee Hillary Clinton ever attained in the summer of that year.See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: Here's what it's like to travel during the coronavirus outbreakSee Also:The Trump campaign has launched an internal audit of spending irregularities during Brad Parscale's tenure as campaign managerTrump's campaign channeled nearly $400,000 to his private business in 2 daysThis is what would happen if a Supreme Court justice died or stepped down before the election

- Business Insider 17:19June 27, 2020Trump's in danger of losing some of his most faithful votersAP Photo/Jose Luis Magana Until recently, President Trump's most adamant supporters have been white evangelical Christians.
However, new data suggests that while a majority still support him that percentage is slipping.
Given Trump's tight win in 2016, if these loyalists waver in 2020, then the president's reelection prospects are in peril.

Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. White evangelical Protestants have been President Donald Trump's most vocal and committed supporters throughout his presidency. They were critical to his election in 2016, accounting for one-third of his voters, and may determine whether he serves a second term. But a new poll suggests that some of Trump's most devoted followers may not stick with him.
At this stage in his 2016 campaign, Trump was leading his opponent, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, by a considerable margin among white evangelical voters — according to a poll by the Pew Research Center in July 2016 Trump had the support of 78% of the group — even as a substantial number still expressed reservations about his candidacy.See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: Why electric planes haven't taken off yetSee Also:Just like Trump promised, the US is 'tired of winning.'

The coronavirus pandemic and nationwide protests were already coinciding with the erosion of his electoral college firewall, but the latest batch of New York Times/Siena college polls paint an even more dire picture.
Trump is down 14% nationally to former Vice President Joe Bide, and is facing significant deficits in crucial electoral college states.
Among white voters — even those without a college degree — Trump is slipping to Biden, putting his reelection prospects in further jeopardy.

- Business Insider 19:53June 12, 2020Why the electoral college may not be able to save Trump's re-election chancesAP Photo/Evan Vucci With less than five months until the election, it's increasingly unlikely that President Donald Trump will be able to repeat his success in 2016, when he lost the popular vote but won the electoral college.
Trump has deep underwater approval ratings, is receiving poor marks for his handling of his the COVID-19 pandemic and race relations, and is behind in several key swing states.
The president also faces demographic challenges with independents, white women, and voters 65 and older.
In 2016, the winner-take-all dynamics of the electoral college led to Trump carrying Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania by less than one percentage point.
This year, that same dynamic may work against him.
Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. With election day looming in just under five months, President Donald Trump could see his electoral college firewall collapse out from under him.
The president faces a triple whammy of historically low approval ratings, poor marks for his handling of both the COVID-19 pandemic and recent protests over racism and police brutality, and being on the defense in several key states he narrowly carried in 2016.
