With 8 days to go until Election Day, former Vice President Joe Biden is still comfortably ahead of President Donald Trump by most measures. The weekend’s rallies are over, and though they haven’t had time to factor into many polls, it’s time to check in and see where the numbers are today:

It’s important to understand that the FiveThirtyEight and RealClearPolitics polling averages, the leading aggregates of polls, are very different from each other. You can read about those differences here.

As of this writing, the RCP average has Biden over Trump by +7.8, an extremely slight narrowing since Friday’s updates. The FiveThirtyEight average has Biden at +9.4, an equally tiny narrowing.
