How accurate can media political polls be when pollsters like ABC insist on oversampling Democrats?
A recent ABC poll has Hillary Clinton ahead of Trump by 12 points, and ABC maintains that a 9 point over sample of Democrats is legit. But is that true?
In 1980 up to the last minute the polls had Carter ahead by 9 points. The result, he lost to Reagan by 9 points. An 18 point disparity in the national poll then.
I think we are looking at a repeat of history in the polls. If Trump was really down 10 or more points in the polls he wouldn't be getting 10's of thousands at Trump Rallies, every one, while not even a thousand at Hillary rallies.
The media is as crooked as Hillary.
I'm certain that the polls are off, and are a bit better for Trump than things appear, but I don't think the polls are flat out wrong. Clinton does seem to be ahead...
That's good,liberals want so bad to believe it that they will probably stay home& notvote thinking Hillary will win in a landslide anyway.That's exactly how privileged they believe they r & how little enthusiasm the left really has for HRC

How accurate are the political polls like Gallup etc., in predicting the winners in the election?There are many competing polls and it is like every TV networks, newspapers, Wall Street Journal conduct their own poll.

Why do people in politics insist on categorizing you before they respond to you?For the umpteenth time, individuals do NOT have to associate with any political party in order to make a rational argument concerning any other political party. In other words, not because John Doe opposes gay marriage,...
