    "Biden currently leads with 30.8%, followed by Warren at 18.0%, Bernie Sanders at 16.8%, Harris at 8.3% and Pete Buttigieg at 6.3%. All other candidates are at 2% or less."

    "In general election polling, Biden has a high single-digit lead over Donald Trump, Sanders a mid single-digit lead, and both Warren and Harris have low single-digit leads. Biden’s perceived electability is crucial in explaining his continued strong polling, as this tweet from analyst Nate Silver says."

    Biden still leads US Democratic primaries, Trump's ratings fall slightly after gun massacres, plus Australian preference flows

    I think the 2016 election told us all we need to know about polls.

    Ironically, the chances that the NYT is giving it to you straight is statistically identical.

    Quick poll on whether or not this thread should be a poll:

    POLL: Should this thread be a poll?
    o Yes
    o No
    o Who cares, all polls are stupid
    o If you say "poll" in your head too many times it starts sounding ridiculous and loses all meaning, just like real polls.​


    Seriously though, poll? What a dumb word. Poll. Poll poll poll. Why is it pronounced/spelled that way?

    Do you see the stadiums that Trump packs? He does this with a 24 hr notice.

    Sleepy Joe? Can't fill a classroom with 20 people.

    I would hope no one trusts polls after the 2016 election, but some do. You always want to see your person win.

    I hope ALL the libs take these polls as gospel.

    The pictures of their horror from that night in 2016 will bring me joy until the end of my days

    We need another round of Liberals breaking down when Trump wins videos. Those were awesome.

    I believe that poles are important.

    How else could I fly the flag or construct a pole barn?
    Also what would we call people from Poland? — never mind

    I still watch them once in a while. They never get old. Love the news people when they found out they were all wrong. Lol.
