General election polls: of value when?

Many have, when head to head polls against Trump were cited in support of candidate A or B, oft-repeated that general election head to head polls are not very useful too early on. True that.

But now we have a presumptive nominee and while the general is not right around the corner it starts to get close enough to make me wonder:

When DO general election head to head polls begin to have any predictive value? (Smart asses who want to say never can just not bother please.)
