>> OKAY.

PHIL RUCKER, THAT NICELY SETS UP

A QUESTION ABOUT POLLING.

THE LATEST POLLING SHOWS THE

PRESIDENT UNDERWATER TO JOE

BIDEN, AND TO QUOTE BRIANNA

KEILAR, ALL OF THE POLLS SHOW

THE SAME THING.

WE LEARNED TODAY, BY THE WAY,

WEVE BEEN IN A RECESSION SINCE

FEBRUARY.

DEPENDING ON WHICH STAT KEEPER

YOU QUOTE, CORONAVIRUS IS

SHOWING UP LEVELS IN EITHER 20

THAT STRATEGISTS IN BOTH PARTIES

ARE HAVING.

STRATEGISTS OVER THE LAST COUPLE
