As you know, many pollsters show Joe Biden with leads in battleground states, but Frank Luntz noted what a Trump pollster is reportedly saying and is wondering if he’ll ever work again if he’s wrong:
Trump pollster @JMcLghln is privately telling people that Trump is ahead in ALL the swing states – including Penn and Michigan, and tied in Wisconsin.
I don't believe it. But if he's right, he's a genius. If he's wrong, I wonder if he'll ever work again.

Judging from certain other pollsters, if 2016 was any indication, it might not be a career-ender:

Luntz’s question could also be looked at the other way around. What if the pollsters who have Biden winning those swing-states are wrong?
That's funny, I was thinking the same thing about you, Frank. https://t.co/DbHQ1kx1J5

In memoriam: the pollsters who lost their careers, due to incorrectly forecasting the 2016 presidential race:

Pollsters who blew the 2016 call still seem to be gainfully employed.
