I wouldn't put too much stock in one poll when you have RCP averages.

The undecided is a lot closer to 10%, perhaps a bit above so far. What RCP averages and Emerson doesn't do is to provide third party voters.

Going inside and averaging everything out, Biden 49%, Trump 42%, other or third party voters 4%, undecided or not sure 5%. From January until today, Biden has been between 47-51%, Trump from 40-44%. Compare that to 2016 when Hillary was between 40-44%, Trump from 36-40%.

In 2016 the third party/undecided from January through July averaged between 18-22%, 2020 7-11%.

The bottom line is in 2020 Trump must convince some Biden supporters to jump his ship and board Trump's train. There isn't that huge pool of 20% or so undecided/third party voters to pull from. In 2016, Trump didn't need to convince one Hillary voter to come over to his side.
