The accepted thinking is that Trump was being crushed by Hillary in the polls throughout the entire campaign. But this time four years ago he was actually ahead of her, for the first time.

Not saying this is a predictor of anything, but it's an interesting stat.

Are you slow? Not saying you're living up to your name but how hard is it to verify what I said? Do you not have the brain power for a literal 2 second google search?

Less brain power, more motivation. It's Friday evening, and I worked my ass off this week, sue me.

Moreover, you assert something, it's on you to back it up.

That "look into it yourself" is how we get retards like SpunQ spouting conspiracy nonsense and saying "educate yourself". He at least takes the time to post spurious backup.

After 2016, I don't believe the polls regardless of who they show ahead.

We'll know on Nov. 4th.   Anything before that is wild speculation.

LOL

Trump being shown at a 50% poll is likely 66.7% in real life.

It was never about the total voters. It was always about if hebb bc could win the purple states, that he would need to win almost all of them to have a chance and that he was behind by double digits in several. I’m not even sure why anyone GAF about polling that doesn’t incorporate the electoral college. It’s meaningless.

I was polled recently on polling and the poll result was that 0% of polls were actually useful polls, and even less polls were reliable polls.

I've since given up on polls.

Hillary was a terrible candidate but it's not possible that Biden is even electable.  He may not make it to November.  I seriously question anyone who is considering voting Biden.

Haters are more fervent in their hate than supporters in their support. This election is about how many Trump haters vote. With Hillary, many sat home because they couldn't in good conscience vote for an unlikeable pyscho swamp monster. With Biden, he's more likeable, though he's a swamp monster too. 

But they may hold their noses and vote for him where they couldn't for Hillary.

This is the same dumb shit you idiots said about hillary leading up to the 2016 election.  She was on the brink of death!  Couldnt walk on her own!  She had a stroke! Etc.  Of course after the election, Hillary's health was fine and never spoken of again.

When it comes to political races... all that matters is winning, imo.
