I think the current polls and TV talking head dialogues are all more-or-less meaningless. It's all about the debates and we'll see how things stand then.
I recall the same "Bush doesn't have a chance" talk when he was running (and faltering) against Gore. When he held his own in the debates, however, momentum started to shift and he managed to pull it off. Reagan did the same against Carter, as did Clinton against Bush #1 (with some help from Perot!).
You do not examine legislation in the light of the benefits it will convey if properly administered, but in the light of the wrongs it would do and the harms it would cause if improperly administered. - Lyndon Johnson
