The New York Times published polls this week showing Donald Trump ahead of Joe Biden in five of six key swing states. Yet it appears that the President is in denial about his impending loss, according to an Axios report today.

Biden is joined by his top advisers in ignoring the polls which, if heeded, might encourage him to make some changes to his campaign. Instead, the President is telling supporters that he’s gaining on Trump and that the media is lying.

The conventional wisdom for optimistic Democrats is that the country simply will not choose Donald Trump. Where have we heard this before?
