Here’s hoping.

Joe Biden stands a 71.1% chance of winning the Electoral College, according to the Sept. 7 run of poll aggregator FiveThirtyEight’s election forecasting model. He is predicted to win 334 of 538 electoral votes.

The model estimated Donald Trump’s chances at 28.4%

According to the Sept. 7 run of the model, Trump had a 15.9% chance of carrying the popular vote, compared with Biden’s 84.1%.

The national polling average for Trump reached 42.9% on Sept. 7, the same as on Sept. 6.

Biden’s national polling average reached 50.6% on Sept. 7 compared with 50.5% on Sept. 6.

CBS also has a poll with some good news.

Joe Biden is projected to lead with 279 electoral college votes to President Donald Trump’s 163, with 96 votes still a toss-up, according to a new CBS News/YouGov poll of battleground states.

The poll showed that 52 percent of likely voters would cast a ballot for Biden, while 42 percent would vote for Trump.

A candidate only needs 270 electoral votes to win, which means that if the election were held right now Joe Biden would likely win in a walk. 

However, we also have to factor in all the disruption that Donald Trump is fomenting and the interference from Russia and others. 

Good news like this is great and all, but we need to keep our eye on the ball and vote like our lives depended on it. 

Because in fact, they do.
