    I saw a poll showing that Bernie polls well with college students.

    Hard to believe a dude promising to wipe out their tuition bills is polling well with that demographic.

    LOL, like that girl that had $6 to her name and gave half of it to Warren.  Not a bad ROI if it gets your student loans wiped out!  Except it's not happening, and instead it's just another in what will likely be a string of bad financial decisions for that young woman.   Would have been better off investing that $3 in a lottery ticket.

    Biden trailing a communist, a gay, and a fake Indian.  Look for a medical issue to pop up very shortly taking him out of the race.

    WTF does have to do with anything? 

    The knock on Pete is his age and just expereience as a small town mayor.

    For many voters it has a lot do with it, and I am not speaking for myself.  Thus, for Biden to still be trailing, it proves he is toast.

    Perhaps, but maybe not. It is yet to be seen in swing states. 

    Also, Biden isn't toast yet. He is still leading in a lot of Super Tuesday states.

    "A gay"

    LOL.  Maybe I've heard that before and it just didn't register, I don't know.  But it does sound odd, like something someone who doesn't realize they're a bigot would say.  Or maybe it's something said by people who used to or would otherwise have said "he's a fairy" [though obviously not the word I'm referring to].

    Yup. Agreed. 

    The Ad he put out online a few days ago pitting words of US Presidents against that of Trump at rallies was great.

    Bloomberg would be terrible for the country, but that is a darn good ad.

    Someone forgot to tell QO that it isn't 1962.  

     

     

    Son, you've got to watch out for communists and queers.

    Me blind? Hello pot....

    Yeah...the polls were largely right there in 2016 too. They were within the margin of error in the swing states and nationally. But, that gets lost in the story.

    Nationally they were, but I don't believe they were within the swing states. I will have to look it up, but I remember FL, PA, WI, MI, MN all being well off (maybe OH too).

     

     

    Edit: I looked it up, they had PA, WI, MI, and MN wrong.

     

    MI was off by 5.3% (5% favor for Clinton, Trump won by 0.3%)

    PA was off by 3.7%

    WI was off by 7.7%

    MN was off by 7.5% (in my head Trump won MN, but he didn't, they had Clinton by 9%, she won by 1.5%).

     

     

     

    Fri, Feb 14, 2020 12:57 PM

    I could keep going...

    Ohio was off by 4.7%

    Indiana was off by 9%

     

    All of the states that were off by a bunch were off "lowering" Trump vs what actually happened. None of Clinton's states were off by more than a couple percent.

     

    The swing states were most definitely off/wrong in the 2016 election polls.

     

    The national polls were only off by 1%, the swing states were off by a lot.

    Actually The People largely comprise the majority of the states that elected the president.
