New York City icon Yogi Berra once declared, “It ain’t over till it’s over.”
That sentiment was forcefully brought to the attention of the poll-obsessed establishment media Sunday by another New York City icon, as President Donald Trump shared with reporters the results of polls that show the tide of the presidential election turning in three key states.
According to a CBS/YouGov poll, voters who have not yet cast their ballots are leaning increasingly toward Trump and away from Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.

The poll shows that among Florida voters who have not yet cast their ballots, Trump is leading Biden 59 percent to 40 percent.
In Georgia, the poll found that among voters getting ready to head to the polls, the president is leading 54 percent to 44 percent.
In North Carolina, Trump holds a 58 percent to 41 percent lead among voters who have not participated in early voting.
In all cases, more than 40 percent of the state has already voted; in North Carolina, it was 51 percent. Among those who have voted early, Biden enjoyed substantial leads over Trump.
The margin of error for the CBS/YouGov poll was 3.6 percentage points in Florida, 3.4 percentage points in Georgia and 4.1 percentage points in North Carolina.
The president on Sunday made a campaign swing through Maine, where he signed pumpkins as well as Make America Great Again hats, according to the Portland Press-Herald.

“He’s such a great president and with what he’s done for this country, I feel like this is a good way to honor him,” 58-year-old Mark Cain of Hampden told the outlet. “I’m just really impressed with how many people have shown up. It’s incredible, especially for something that wasn’t really advertised.”
Trump noted that he delivered for Maine, unlike the Obama administration.

Constance Mensink, 44, of Bar Harbor, came away with a signed baseball cap and an enhanced affection for the president.
“He’s like a real normal person,” she said. “We just connected. He made you feel like you’re the only one he’s talking to. You can just see the love he has for America and for the voters.”
