Joe Biden's campaign manager admitted the national polls that give Biden a double-digit lead over President Donald Trump are "inflated."

"We're not ahead by double digits. We're just not," tweeted Jen O'Malley Dillon on Thursday. Dillon went on to say the race is "far closer" than a lot of Biden supporters think. "Like a lot closer."

The Biden camp is concerned that the 2020 election will be a repeat of 2016 when Hillary Clinton had double-digit leads over Trump in 12 national polls.

In a Zoom call to supporters, Dillon said, "Please take the fact that we are not ahead by double digits. Those are inflated national public polling numbers."

With a hint of panic in her voice, she urged Democrats to get out and vote.

Some Twitter users expressed anger at the Biden camp for appearing to wave the white flag too early.

One user tweeted: "Are you trying to give me nightmares with this close talk or make sure I vote?"

But others see Dillon's warning as a calculating move to keep the other side off balance.
