Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's campaign manager reportedly admitted that the national public polling numbers, which show Biden overwhelmingly leading President Donald Trump, are inflated.
The Biden campaign and Trump campaign didn't immediately respond to requests for comment.
This isn't the first time Dillon has cautioned about complacency regarding Biden's numbers.
"The reality is that this race is far closer than some of the punditry we’re seeing on Twitter and on TV would suggest," Dillon allegedly wrote in the memo. “Even the best polling can be wrong and that variables like turnout mean that in a number of critical swing states we are fundamentally tied."
Currently, national polls data overwhelmingly show that Trump trails Biden. As of Oct. 17, the RealClearPolitics average of the polls shows that Biden leads Trump by nine percent nationally.
However, the Trump campaign is highly skeptical of the polls.
"In 2016, the ABC News/Washington Post Poll was such a complete disaster that these two ... news Organizations changed the numbers prior to the Election," Trump wrote in a Twitter post on Oct. 11.
"Now these haters are trying the same thing, though on a lesser scale, again. Will have a bigger win than even 2016!"
The current situation is reminiscent of the 2016 election when polls consistently showed Trump trailing Hillary Clinton by a significant margin before comfortably beating the Democratic nominee for the White House.
