(HorizonPost.com) – Could it be déjà vu all over again for the state whose citizens like to wear Styrofoam wedges of cheese on their heads? Some experts and pollsters who remember what happened in 2016 are hopeful that President Donald Trump can repeat his performance. Even some average Joe’s are seeing the signs … literally.

With approximately one week left before the 2020 election, political poll aggregator, RealClear Politics (RCP) surveys say, on average, that Joe Biden is up by approximately 5.5%. It’s worth noting that Susquehanna Polling and Research reported a dead-heat at 45%.
At the same point in time in the 2016 race against Hillary Clinton, the data showed she was practically a shoo-in with a significant 6.5% lead. The margin of victory may only have been 7/10 of a percent, but it gave the electors in the state to President Trump.
One thing the last election proved was that pollsters are only as good as their processes. Because of that epic fail, people have hypothesized that those behind the questions are trying to create self-fulfilling prophecies or that Republicans as a whole are unwilling to participate.
