Fox News: David Bossie: Trump vs. Biden polls – here's what you need to keep in mind

This is an election year unlike any we've ever witnessed.

President Hillary Clinton would be wrapping up her first term right now, following the earlier presidencies of Thomas Dewey, Michael Dukakis, Al Gore, John Kerry and Mitt Romney if public opinion polls on presidential elections were always accurate.

Keep this in mind when you read and watch all the news stories now predicting that President Trump is headed for defeat when he faces former Vice President Joe Biden in the November presidential election.

Polls are snapshots in time and far from infallible. They can vary wildly depending on who is polled, how questions are phrased and many other variables. All this is not a matter of opinion. It's an indisputable fact.

As just one of many examples of how wrong polls often can be, 32 years ago this week The New York Times published a story with the headline "Dukakis Lead Widens, According to New Poll." The Times reported that Massachusetts Gov. Michael Dukakis, then the Democratic presidential nominee, was ahead of then-Vice President George H.W.
