Polls vary a lot, and the big-time pollsters learned from2016: be wrong and become irrelevant.  So the efforts to make them accurate may be making them less not more dramatic than the politics of the day actually is.  We'll know soon enough.  I'm of the opinion that the pollsters overcompensated, so the polls are less accurate this time than they were in 2016 -- just in the opposite direction.  I hope so anyway.  We desperately need a blowout.

-- l used 2 work 4 an 800# service & a few of the clients were pollsters. l worked the overnite shift & keyed in the data that was collected on phone calls during the day & evening. l saw the questions & how the polls were manipulated to get the desired answers. From what i've seen & my own experience w/ polling calls not much has changed. l don't trust them

Good point.  I guess we'll know soon enough.
