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.

Americans are critical of President Trump's handling of the coronavirus pandemic so far, as challenger Joe Biden polls eight points higher among voters.

56% of adults disapprove of Trump's handling of the crisis while 41% approve.

According to the poll, many disapprove of Trump's performance after Dr. Anthony Fauci said there will be more suffering and deaths if the country reopens too soon.

Trump has ignored calls to fire Dr. Fauci, whose incorrect coronavirus models led to multi-state shutdowns.

Dr. Fauci spoke remotely during a virtual Senate Committee hearing on Tuesday, saying reopening the country too soon would lead to "avoidable suffering and death".

Fauci said states should wait until a vaccine is available before reopening fully and allowing citizens to return to work.

When pressed about reopening schools, Fauci cautioned that schools and colleges could reopen in the fall -- if a vaccine is available.

Despite no school closures when hundreds of children die from influenza every year, Fauci claimed children must stay home or countless people will die from Covid-19.

Fox News host Tucker Carlson compared the U.S. to Sweden which never shut down schools or businesses during the pandemic. The death toll there is less than in the U.S.

Georgia reopened 2 weeks ago, and coronavirus hospitalizations decreased to the lowest level since January.

Twitter users vented their frustrations at Dr. Fauci and President Trump.
