    I see polls saying it is a close race but I see 3 cars in a parade and less than a dozen at rallies for one and I would bet there are more in line for the bathroom than at the other ones gathering . And this is for the Vice President .

    Silent majority will speak out on Nov 3. The more interesting question is how will the DemoKKKrats attempt to steal the election.

    Polls are not used to measure opinion - they are used to _shape_ opinion.

    I hope Trump wins by a monstrous landslide... the bigger, the better. Hopefully, the size of the meltdown from the left will match so we can just get it on and get it over with.

    Poll results depend on a number of factors, including who is responding and how poll questions are phrased. Mostly they are used for propaganda and to influence people, and are not necessarily an accurate picture of election results.

    I’m convinced that most of these polls are taken at gay pride parades and democrat gatherings of one sort or another.

    Random polls can be made to produce any desired results.

    Stand in the lobby of Handgun Control Inc (or whatever they are called now) and "randomly" poll people about gun control.

    Additionally most of these polls are skewered in the sense that they have many more democrat respondents than republicans. If you adjust for that skew, Trump is actually leading.

    I listened to NPR on the ride into work this morning. I think the show was called morning edition, but it was really a hit piece where every third sentence is directly accusing Trump of lying about everything. Well, these geniuses said that Biden is leading by 9 points! Lolz.
