Trump believes he will win Texas during his 2020 reelection campaign, although the polls are tight heading into the Nov. 3, 2020, election day.

President Donald Trump railed against "suppression polls" showing him either losing or tied with former Vice President Joe Biden in reliably red states, with Trump saying the Texas governor called and assured him Monday he won't lose.

Trump told rallygoers in Martinsburg, Pennsylvania, Monday that his support of oil, energy companies and fracking will lead him to victory over Biden in the Democratic nominee's home state—as well as in Texas. Trump said Texas Governor Greg Abbott responded to polls and increasing hype that the state may turn blue by calling and telling him Monday that data is simply wrong.

Biden's big lead: A field guide to the swing-state polls

  Biden's big lead: A field guide to the swing-state polls A close look at the polls in 13 battlegrounds details Biden's advantage in the Midwest and his drive to break new ground in the Sun Belt.A wave of swing-state surveys this week confirmed Biden’s advantage in many of the Electoral College battlegrounds, including posting double-digit leads in some polls in Michigan and Pennsylvania.

In response to Trump stating he would not have a peaceful transition if he loses, Biden responded that Trump has pissed off so many military and intelligence officials that he ’s not worried about a coup.

While speaking about reducing drug prices by cutting out the middlemen, Trump dropped this line saying , “So, I have a lot of enemies out there. This might be the last time you ’ ll see me for awhile.” This was a very unusual and purposeful statement that he made.

Biden's running mate, Kamala Harris, is set to become the highest-profile representative from the Biden campaign to visit the Lone Star State this Friday. This follows several polls which show the Democratic ticket may be in position to win Texas for the first time since 1976. Harris would also become the first Democratic vice presidential candidate to campaign in Texas since 1988, when Texas Sen. Lloyd Bentsen toured his home state while on the ticket with presidential candidate Michael Dukakis.

Trump repeatedly told the raucous Pennsylvania rally attendees Monday evening that Biden doesn't support "guns, oil or God" and he scoffed at the idea he could lose Texas.

"And then they say, 'President Trump is up four points in Texas' and the governor calls me from Texas, great guy Greg [Abbott], and he says, 'sir, that's not true, you are up a lot' but of course the polls won't say that. But think about it, [Biden] is against oil, he's against guns and against God - and you're in Texas!"

Everything you need to know about election polls in 2020

  Everything you need to know about election polls in 2020 Insider answers some of the most common polling-related questions of the 2020 election season.It's easy to get confused by political polls and surveys due to their intricacies, averages, and varying methodologies, so Business Insider answered some of the most common polling-related questions of the 2020 election:

Trump says he is 'doing better' in some states than four years ago. Man proves you ' re never old to go ziplining. Polls open in Chile for referendum on constitution. Trump supporters line up ahead of a rally in swing state Ohio.

The poll 's results are statistically insignificant. The population of the seven countries polled is 342 million, but Since 2016, US intelligence services have set up a coup d’état in conjunction with elites and the fake news To win the White House, you need to win States , not the overall national vote.

"You know we have polls too because the fake news is always giving fake numbers, they're really called suppression polls," Trump continued.

The Trump campaign issued a statement Sunday that the president will not make a campaign stop in Texas because they do not view it as even slightly competitive. Former Secretary of Energy and former Texas Governor Rick Perry bluntly told supporters in a Sunday call, "Texas is not a battleground state."

"Then the polls claim 'Trump is up four points, it's a very close race,' because you [in Pennsylvania] have the same thing, almost to a little bit lesser extent but Texas was just amazing, Texas and Pennsylvania I hope you're looking," he added claiming Biden will "eradicate" the state's energy production.

Biden has had mixed messages about his stance on fracking. Biden on Saturday told rallygoers in Pennsylvania flatly, "I'm not banning fracking, period." But in previous Democratic primary debates and campaign stops he has said he's open to restrictions being placed on fracking and the fossil fuel industry.

Why Texas Republicans' hold on the state is loosening

  Why Texas Republicans' hold on the state is loosening The huge surge of early voting in Texas' rapidly growing cities and inner suburbs likely marks the end of unchallenged Republican dominance in America's second largest state -- a seismic shift in the nation's electoral landscape.Even if President Donald Trump retains enough rural strength to hold Texas in next week's election, which many still consider the most likely outcome, the swelling voter turnout in and around the increasingly Democratic-leaning cities of Houston, Dallas, Austin, San Antonio and Fort Worth points toward a return to political competition in the state after more than two decades of almost uninterrupted Republican ascendancy.

When he brought it up to Leslie Stahl with all the crazy nonsensical details, she basically laughed in his face

Polls indicate Trump 's aggressive, interrupting style didn't play well with suburban women, who are With more exposure comes a greater risk of saying or doing something that costs him at the polls . That's a lot of different and conflicting interests that could be stirred to anger if he gives them reason to.

A pair of polls over the weekend showed Trump barely leading Biden, but a Dallas Morning News and University of Texas at Tyler poll released Sunday showed Biden actually ahead of Trump among likely voters, 48 to 45 percent. Although within the margin of error, a Biden win in Texas would almost guarantee he hits the necessary Electoral College votes to win, FiveThirtyEight, noted.

More Texas residents have already done early voting and cast their ballots prior to Election Day than did throughout the entire 2016 process. Trump won the state over Hillary Clinton four years ago by 9 percentage points, 52.2 to 43.2 percent.

Based solely upon Texas voting history, a Democratic candidate has not won the presidential race there since Jimmy Carter did so in 1976. Trump said California "doesn't matter" in next week's election, adding that he'd vote for himself if he lived there or in New York due to "high taxes, high crime."

Citing a Rasmussen poll, Trump said it's "hard to lose when you're at 52 or 53 percent" over Biden. "Hillary [Clinton] used to campaign in California and it doesn't matter."

The #TurnTexasBlue movement was reinvigorated by Texas Democrats during the 2018 primaries in which state representative Beto O'Rourke - like most "blue wave" candidates that year - narrowly lost to Republican Senator Ted Cruz. Governor Abbott easily won re-election over his Democratic challenger in 2018 but Democrats picked up several U.S. house seats in Dallas and Houston.

The final week in polls: Trump eats into Biden's leads in Arizona, North Carolina, Nevada and Pennsylvania .
The final polls show the race between Trump and Biden has tightened since mid-October, both nationally and in the critical battleground states.Biden's lead in USA TODAY's average of averages, which is based on data from RealClearPolitics and FiveThirtyEight, reached double-digits on Oct. 12, but has since fallen back to a 7.5-percentage point lead. That leaves him back roughly in the same position USA TODAY found him in its first poll roundup on Sept. 28, when his polling average lead over Trump was 7.2 points.
