….can you honestly tell me you expect the polling models to resemble 2012?
You think black voters, 25% of the needed votes Democrats crave, are going to vote in the same numbers for Hillary as they voted for Barack? You think all of them have forgotten about South Carolina in 2008?
If so, you don’t know black voters too well.
So, I don’t know why you give a damn about the Real Clear Politics polling. Almost all of them are following a 2012 model turnout *and* it’s a virtual guarantee they will slightly adjust more to reality when the week of the vote occurs.
Polling has been used to shape and handle the voting public, it is not primarily a tool to inform us. That is only its secondary purpose. I’m convinced of that.
Clearly, the business incentive in the polling industry has made this so. They need and want a “race,” a close sprint to the finish. This election cycle is the disruption of all of that. Trump is the quintessential disruptor. Thank goodness.
Trump wins in a landslide. That’s my story and I’m sticking with it. People genuinely don’t like Hillary. They’ve had to tar and feather Trump in an effort to even that out. It’s not going to work.
