No. The whole point to the 2012 polling, wonderfully illustrated by Karl Rove's Fox meltdown on election night, was that the Republicans were only believing the polls that they wanted to believe.

Oh, the halcyon days of 9 months ago, when every other word out of Trump's mouth was about how great the polls were, and how obvious it was he was the peoples' choice.
Now... not so much.

Just the other day you posted two separate polls around voter ID right here in RSP. Do you see value in polls or not? Are they only useful if they are polls you have created?

You want to let us know which poll had Romney ahead by 7.5 points there boss. Which is the RSP average right now

But when Donald Trump's tells you what to think, as a good little right wing minion you must obey.

Those were just to illustrate how stupid all you tool bags are.
And it worked.

There has been lots of talk regarding poll results this whole election.

Why don't you think the scientific polls are accurate?

Have they figured out how many people are just too embarrassed to admit to a phone pollster that they support trump?

Ask me about "the polls" on November 9th, and I will tell you if this statement is true or not.

Got it. You are a sad and pathetic troll.

I have to think there is no way that you are as big a douche bag in real life as you appear to be in this forum. You would never find anyone to play board games with you!

Maybe we should have a poll to see what RSP folks think? Are you as big a douche bag IRL or not?

There are numerous ways to conduct polling. Do you have data to support that Trump does worse in live phone interviews? If so, that data could be used to estimate any bias and then apply a correction.

On the other hand, if they are too embarrassed to talk to the pollster, that might negatively affect his turnout.

I checked the primary polling vs election results and there's no evidence of voters that lied to pollsters and then voted Trump. It's actually the opposite: Trump did better in the polls than in the elections.

Speaking of thing to not be surprised at (as in actually backing up your "points") , I am still waiting for the Romney poll that showed him with a lead anywhere close to Hillary. Thanks sport.

I think that's a very valid point, and has strong correlations with Brexit polls and the final result.

I'll just take your dodging of the question as confirmation that you are as much of a douche bag IRL as you are in the forum.

I see no question directed at me.
Or are you asking ME if you should put up a poll asking if I am a douche bag.
Is that not a rhetorical question?
Gawd.

This actually may be the saddest political statement of the year. People will vote for someone who they are too embarrassed to admit they cast a ballot for. And I'm not disagreeing with you, Dash.
