Biden leads Trump in a number of state and national level polls. The RealClearPolitics polling average shows Biden up 10.1 points. 

The Trump campaign has tried to seize on the enthusiasm that comes from hosting campaign rallies. In June, Trump held two large in-person campaign events in Oklahoma and Arizona while Democrats have obeyed social distancing guidances issued by public health officials, continuing to hold campaign events virtually or with attendees seated 6 feet apart. 

“As Joe Biden remains hidden in his basement, President Trump is leading this country to a Great American Comeback that will reignite our economy, restore law and order, and usher in a new era of strength," McDaniel said.
