Polls are garbage. Less garbage in 2 candidate races but still poor indicators at best. Media likes them because they support long term narratives, it’s like they provide a continuing story within the story: polls are therefore functions of media not politics. Internal polling is another matter altogether - that’s worth paying money for and parties do. A lot of people on this message board are totally sucked into that entirely bogus bullshit.
The GOP is doomed. It doesn’t understand that the forces against it are hugely flexible. If the race looks tight, more people will come out to vote democrat, if the race looks really tight even more people will come out democratic. This isn’t a function of political preference, it’s the middle ground being rational: ‘I might not like what I’m hearing from Clinton, but this other lot are fucking mad so I’m holding my nose this time’. That sane middle will always defeat this Faux News version of the party. I don’t believe there is a study that supports the view that the GOP vote is finite and the Democratic Party vote is fluid in relation to wht the GOP is scoring.
What you got, crazy heads?
