Media Polls Are the Newest Negative Campaign Ad
Over the years, I've generally had little patience when partisans make the "polls are wrong" argument. I've usually found it to be the last refuge of campaigns who were clearly struggling. Sure, individual polls can be wrong and some can occasionally produce a crazy outlier, but, a collective average of polling produced a roughly accurate snapshot of the state of a race. This year, however, is different. The overwhelming majority of media polling this election employ such absurd assumptions about turnout this November that they not only misrepresent the presidential race, they are actively distorting it. I also believe it is intentional.
