The polling numbers right now aren't going to reveal anything.

It would be interesting to gauge the public's mood by the number of internet searches on various terms:

Biden: segregationists, bussing (or is it busing? Bussing seems more like kissing, but busing looks like it should be pronounced like fusing, accusing, musing, ...)

Booker: Newark watershed scandal

Buttigieg: Racist police tapes

Harris: Larry Wallace harrassment

Sanders: Private jet, millionaire book deal

Warren: Faked bankruptcy research, that 1/1024 thing.

Prediction is hard, especially about the future.

Look at the current President and the three immediately previous. Was any one of them the favorite early in the election cycle?

So look at other things than polls.

And, yes, people often concentrate on the negatives. I wonder what percent of the electorate was voting for their presidential candidate in 2016 and what percent was voting against the other?
