Since the former V.P. is currently leading President Trump by 7.9 points in the RCP average, that would mean a lead of almost 20 points coming out of the convention?
So he’s saying he’s going to be down 20? https://t.co/nYdUpkoC9H

That does seem a little high:
Even their “raise expectations” game seems desperate in its absurdity. https://t.co/9dbRI4Jau3

Libs aren’t buying it, FWIW:
everyone expects a 35 point bump
anything less is defeat https://t.co/AR7FRWgyOX

Maybe 2-3 points?
Just for posterity's sake, I'm guessing 2 or 3 points (on vote margin) at most. https://t.co/QE6ObZ1iNt

But Miller does seem to be the only one suggesting Biden “will just crumble like he picked the wrong grail”:
Miller is the only Trumpworld guy setting expectations, instead of predicting that Biden will just crumble like he picked the wrong grail https://t.co/ktCAjMVETf

Jason Miller predicts that Democrats “will get a pretty sizable bump” in the polls this week because of the Democratic National Convention.
