Texas and elsewhere, I worry the polls and predictions are wrong

I fear they have undercounted new voters, and young voters.

New voters. They would NOT be voting to support Trump. They WOULD vote to get rid of him.

Young voters. We all know they shew left in a big way.

If my worry is founded, then we come out even better than we're hoping and thinking.





The above is simply my own suspicion based on more than seventy years' worth of life. Call it Old Person Intuition



Yup, I’m sure that’s why you made this post. lol

WOW!  That comment is the purest definition of the words illogicality, moronic, oxymoronic, and unwitting self-satire.

In my adult years, the media and pundits always suggest that young people will have a massive turnout

It never happens.

Trump is doing so poorly, he's showing videos of Biden campaign events at his rallies for the people to mock.

Well, I guess this proves that old age is no insurance against creeping stupidity.

At times, it's difficult to remember that the sparkling old dude was once a successful and affluent and reasonably well-known executive in the food services industry.

Many polls are meant to shape public opinion, not reflect public opinion.

About five minutes after I posted this, Rush said the same thing.  But I think I've heard him turn that phrase before.

Proof of this is that the "generic" dem candidate always has a double digit lead over the generic GOP candidate.

If this was actually an unbiased poll, it would not consistently be wrong.
