With start of the Democratic National Convention just three days away, Democratic groups are expressing dismay that Hillary Clinton is neck and neck with Donald Trump in the polls.

"Were PANICKED, friends," said an email shot from the Democratic Governors Association.

The group and other Clinton supporters are concerned about the polls and the new analysis by numbers guru Nate Silver showing Clinton's lead down to three points.

The RealClearPolitics average is even worse. Today's analysis has Clinton's lead at 2.8 points.

"This is not good," said the DGA fundraising email.

Their note:

We're PANICKED, Friends:
Nate Silver just confirmed that Donald Trump could be our next president – and polls show him within single digits in key swing states (Pennsylvania, Ohio, Florida). Meanwhile, 92,038 people still haven't activated their DGA memberships to help increase Democratic turnout across the country.
This is NOT good. If we lose these swing states, Donald Trump becomes president and Republicans will defund Planned Parenthood, slash Social Security and deport millions of families. We can only win if we know NOW that top Dems like you are committed to fighting.
