(RightWing.org) – If you followed the 2016 election at all, you might remember the polls all predicted Hillary Clinton was going to win by a landslide. The 2020 race feels like déjà vu, with many pollsters claiming Joe Biden has it in the bag. What the Democratic Party didn’t account for four years ago is the “Silent Majority”– and it looks like they are repeating history again this time around.
According to a new poll released by Monmouth University, voters in Pennsylvania believe their communities have a lot of “secret Trump” voters. Patrick Murray, the institute’s director, said the mainstream media says Biden is leading Trump but voters are very much aware of the 2016 polls. They believe “a secret Trump vote looms large in 2020.”
This is interesting. Monmouth finds Biden up 53-40 in Pennsylvania, but lots of voters suspect Trump will win because they believes their neighbors are secretly supporting him https://t.co/4cclbCyy8A pic.twitter.com/GeiN96Gpa7

President Donald Trump often talks about his Silent Majority. These are people who aren’t vocal about their political beliefs but who show up at the polls during every election and 2016 showed many of them swung to Trump. Could it happen again?
