  1. 1. That wasn't the evidence I presented. 2. I've studied polling research at the university level and conducted it myself, i've calculated margin of error myself, I understand it and its limitations quite fine. Polling is a tool and it has its uses but it doesn't accurately predict the future in tight races. https://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2016/11/09/why-2016-election-polls-missed-their-mark/
  2. Having faith in something and ignoring evidence to the contrary is anti-science. If you have faith in the accurate predicting power of US battleground polling then have fun at church.
  3. Some of the 2016 battleground state polling, even averages of the all polls, missed by 6 points. Some individual polls missed by 9 or 10 points. These are far beyond the margin of error. The margin of error is BS. When these are close battleground states and 2 or 3 points can decide an election the polls don't mean a lot. One CNN poll had Trump leading Nevada by 6 points and Clinton won it by 2.5 points. That's an error of 8.5 points! One Loras poll had Clinton up by 1 point and Trump won by 9.5, that's 10.5 points!! https://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2016/president/2016S
  4. I don't think polling is all that important in this election. It wasn't last election. We're talking about around 10 swing states or whatever that are usually fairly close. Poll answers also don't predict who is going to actually vote, and that's even more up in the air with COVID. I think it's exciting that we have no idea what's going to happen.
  5. You think he meant that literally? I don't like Lemon at all, but like c'mon dude.
  6. I don't see him saying anything about "burning the system down".
  7. If the government is going to hire people based on race, and discriminate against white people, it should be based on research that non-white government employees are not being hired because of their race into senior positions, and not because of other variables. I'd be ok with that. But that's not what i've seen from our government. Where is the research to back the need for this racial inventory, and the need to discriminate against white people? What I see George Floyd getting killed etc, lots of protests, and now the government saying "there's racism out there, let's help by hiring
  8. Sweet, i've been accused of favouring the Palestinians and the Israelis in this one thread. Again, I literally don't care. I have no skin in that game. That conflict get WAAAAAAYYYY too much international attention anyways compared to other conflicts going on in the world. You and Dog are so full of angst you're LOOKING for fight, you two are putting people on sides they don't even want to be on so you can attack.
  9. Polls don't mean crap in the swing-states, which is the only place polls would actually matter anyways. Clinton led in a bunch of polls in swing states she ended up losing. We'll find out on election night.
  10. Every virtue, when taken to an extreme, becomes a vice. Some nationalism and national unity is good. Too much is bad. Too little is bad too.
  11. I once took a poo in a toilet in Florida and didn't flush it. Take that America!
