President Donald Trump is continuing to face a steep tide of opposition heading into November. This Wednesday morning, the anti-Trump Republican group known as The Lincoln Project released a new video ad calling on Americans to join the fight to defeat Trump. As of Wednesday morning around the time of the video’s release, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden (whose nomination became official on Tuesday night) led Trump by an average of 7.6 percent in national-level polls, according to RealClearPolitics, and his lead has been remarkably stable — it’s been at seven percent or above for most of the past about two and a half months.

In the caption for their new video, The Lincoln Project said:

‘We celebrated after WWII. We mourned after 9/11 until we could laugh again. We will not allow the weakest president in our nation’s history to crush this spirit. We will defeat this enemy, too — and smile while doing it.’

In the video itself, narrators say:

‘We will defeat Trump — we can. We must. We will begin anew, as America always does. We will heal, recover, and rebuild. We will go forward, together. This is the fight to which we are called. This is the battle of our generation — join us.’

The video came amidst this year’s Democratic National Convention, which is an all-online event due to concerns about gathering in person amidst the Coronavirus pandemic. The event has featured speeches from Republican and GOP-connected leaders, like former Ohio Governor John Kasich and, on the second night, retired General Colin Powell, whose background includes time as Secretary of State during the George W. Bush administration. The hope is that Biden can win back some GOP-leaning voters who might have fallen away from the Democratic coalition during 2016 — after all, Biden himself was on the ballot when the Democrats got big wins in key swing states in places like the Midwest during the Obama era.

Electoral college projections from various sources currently give Biden a big advantage. According to the Cook Political Report, at least 308 electoral votes are at least “leaning” towards the Democrats.
