So this year the USC Dornsife poll has a strange artifact.

Last time they polled everyone on their panel every 7 days. This year they are releasing their poll every 7 days, but are having their panelists answer every 14 days.

So in effect, they have 2 completely different panels, but released as the same pollster they are showing phantom swings back and forth with one panel showing Biden up around 13 pointa and one panel showing him up 7 points. The movement is not real.
