    Here. One thread for the ups and downs of the political polls. Every day someone posts that Donald is coming back up. Countered by another thread that Clinton had taken new leads in states.

    You can link to all the big polls here, and all the little ones that show your preferred candidate on top.

    C'mon. It'll be fun.

    Ups and downs. Coming back up. Big polls. Preferred candidate on top.

    You see where I'm going with this right?

    Because polls are always correct?

    I mean, 50 million smokers can't be wrong? Of course, most of them died 30 years early thanks to lung cancer, but whatever...

    No because there is a new thread everyday about the latest poll. Here we can keep them all contained in one glorious thread of crap.

    Like trying to keep Trump from saying something offensive. It's just going to happen. There's no stopping it.

    Nine out of ten doctors recommend....

    Remember the book "How to lie with statistics?". Welcome to Polls 101.

    Good idea, but, not my idea of "fun".

    I always check this time of day. Right now, 538 is showing polls-only at 15%. That 14.999999% higher than it should be, sigh.

    The way Hillary's media operates is very predictable.

    Rumor has it that their reporting has never been this fair... :eek:

    True. Clinton's polls always show her on top. Just like every other poll.

    Not sure we're all on the same page here but it really would be exciting if the poles flipped. :p

    Welcome to the political race, where polls have candidates going up and down during their run.

    I would have loved to be a fly on the wall when Bannon and Trump asked her to come aboard. Listen hon, Bannon is going to take over my campaign. We're going to go balls to the wall bigotry and conspiracy theory **** but we need a pretty face out front to put a little lipstick on the pig. Interested?
