The polls are tightening

Because the media says so even though there haven’t really been polls released sense the conventions

1. Yawn..

I find the "the media WANTS a horserace" argument tiring.

2. Media has a vested interest in making this election to appear close.

I don't pay attention to the media.

12. Exactly. This election is not close.

Biden is way ahead.

And that's not going to change with
Trump being, well you know, Trump...

5. Can we stop now?! This is the 3rd or 4th post race is tightening with no signs of such

14. Biden fluctuates between a 8 and 9.5 lead in the last month or so

And Bidens approval went up while trump's went down. And Biden maintains above 50% as NC States mailing their ballots in a few days. Don't get me wrong though, we should all be behaving like he is down in the polls and losing, and doing everything we can to make sure biden wins, because of what is at stake.


They want to claim there have been no polls since (sense) the conventions ... I've seen several and one was very notable in the fact it talked about how much of the black vote is swinging to Trump.

They say there is NO EVIDENCE!!  Well, how about this one; Joe Biden has come out of his basement ... Last I heard he was refusing to come out until at least after Labor Day because you know ... SCIENCE!!  Now, he's out of the basement, I wonder what the motivation behind denying (or going against) the SCIENCE, is??

The DUmmies are terrified, but none will admit it.

Amusing. Both sports guy Clay Travis and Rush Limbaugh mentioned today that the betting markets are almost dead even.  Looked myself, and it is true.

The three gambling sites I checked have -115 for Creepy Joe, -110 for President Trump.  In other words, one would have to bet $110 to win $100 on Trump.

Betting markets don't have any partisan lean.  They're all about making money.

Some polls are strangely not available at the moment.

Well the media *has* to try to have some semblance of objectivity.

Since the 1980 election, when I first stared  paying attention, the *generic dem* is always 15 + points ahead and then it *always* tightens and then when the GOP candidate wins it is *always* a surprise.

When Reagan won in a landslide in 84 the media was crying and portraying it has an invalid election even though they were the laughing stock of the nation for getting it wrong.

Nothing has changed except the platform.  The *media* is nothing more than a worthless collection of idiots.

2016 was the first Presidential election in which the MSM didn't do their poll phony early and then get more realistic late shtick. In 2016 they kept polling phony because they hate Trump.

LA Times did. And they were beat upside the head cause of it. Think there was another one but can't recall.  :shrug:

The MSM supported Trump early cause they wanted Trump to be the GOP candidate so Hillary would have an advantage. Well Trump used their ass like a cheap whore out by the dumpster to win the nomination and once he won,  the MSM thought "we got this this".

Well Trump took them on and beat their ass like Reagan did.

Different methods, same result.  The MSM back in the 80's tried the same thing on Reagan and failed miserably.

Now?  Who knows.  I can say that if Trump wins in a state biden needs then there will be *voter fraud* and recounts, et al.

That's a given unless it is a landslide.   :cheersmate:

Well bless your heart Dumbass. If this was as you think it is then there would be many polls published stating so. Since the normal pollsters are remaining silent about this Slow Joe and Horrible Harris are in trouble.

The fact you're not hearing about Trump getting his ass beat in the polls, or much of anything concrete about polls, tells you there's no joy in that info for Biden, so it is therefore 'Not newsworthy.'

They're so cute when they think they're winning.

One more participation trophy for Uncle Joe, just like another three time loser like Hillary.

I didn't see a single post at DU about Joe stumbling around talking about the Coronavirus.  Not so much as a blip.  I promise you though, when he did that, they held their collective breath and HOPED no one but them saw it.

Have posted this sentiment before about polling, but I'll try to sum it up.

Most polls survey "registered voters", NOT " likely voters".  Libs rely on the registered voters crap, because it skews towards the Democrats. But many other than die hards don't actually vote.

Always pay close attention to "likely voter" polls.

This is a replay--although not an exact one--of the elections of 1948, when the pollsters quit polling in late September because Thomas Dewey was going to win anyway.
