How Donald Trump can still win the 2020 US election

On first reading, the data looked dire for Donald Trump ahead of the first 2020 presidential debate.

Poll after poll from not only the previous few days but weeks and months showed the President trailing his Democrat rival Joe Biden nationally.

In the final days of September ahead of the debate, around 50 per cent of Americans plan to vote for Biden in November, compared to 43 per cent siding with Trump, according to the Telegraph’s US polls tracker – one of the biggest leads at this point in a presidential campaign.

In fact no eventual winner of a US presidential election has gone into the first debate trailing their main challenger in national polling as much as Trump does right now.
