Let's see, most polls that we see from CNN, the newspapers etc, have maybe 500, 1,100 or at most 2,000 people polled. The

poll I posted in the link had 50,000 people,  1,000 from each state. They were 33% democrat, 33% republican, 34%

independent. A very balanced, unbiased cross section of the country, wouldn't you say?  Which is how it should if you want to

have accurate results. I think the only reasons you're implying it wasn't reputable is because it didn't say what you wanted to

hear, ie Hillary is winning in a landslide. Or that it didn't come from a national newspaper or tv network. Tell me if I'm wrong.

The fact that they asked an equal amount of people from each party, and from each state guarantees fairness. If you conducted

a poll in a mostly Democratic state, the poll would mostly likely say the Democratic nominee was ahead. Same with a mostly

Republican state. Not a very fair or honest poll, or unexpected result there, agreed?

All that being said, everyone can argue about the polls and what they say all they want. But bottom line, the polls really don't

mean Jack Sheet.

The only thing that really matters is what happens on November the 8th, after millions of people of cast their ballots, and all the

votes are counted up. And then we'll know which poll was correct.

I like a more accurate polling of voters and that is a very balanced way to do it. I don't appreciate when the Democratic

lean polls people most likely to vote Hillary, of course the results are going to be swayed in her favor. I also do not like

when Republicans poll people most likely to vote Trump. It doesn't give the clear picture either way, it almost gives false

hope...I like a fair poll but the best way like you said is wait until Nov 8 and see the real results.

          Okay, say you're voting Hillary on Nov 8 and you decide to go to a rally..in the news and on tv and in many newspapers

          you get the story reported to you that her rallies are jam packed and energetic!! Well, you gear yourself up to find a parking

          spot, walk to the center, wait in line, be stuffed in like sardines and hear all kinds of yelling, hooting and hollering.

          The rally starts and you start looking around thinking..hmm, why is everyone still at their car or out in line or stuck in 

          traffic?? 20 minutes later, same crowd...when you're looking around wondering where everyone is, aren't you thinking

          there is definitely something wrong??  50 people, 100 people, 171 people, 500 people...I think it would kind of make you

          think wait up...maybe there is  some truth to that stuff they've been telling us...she's corrupt, she lied, she's dirty, she's

          rich off the Clinton Foundation, she was responsible for Benghazi! I just wonder how many people have thought about that

          and changed their minds after things sunk in.

             FBI sources say with 99% accuracy that Hillary Clinton's server has been hacked by at least five foreign intelligence agencies, and that information had been taken from it.

              If you're a resident of Texas, you can get a free Voter I.D.  You just have to make the effort to go get one...and provide proof that you are who you say you are.

              And yes, anybody with any graphics skill can create a college I.D.   They're not any more "advanced" than the limited intellect needed to get a degree these days. You're living proof of that. 

              You're the ignorant one if you think that hundreds of thousands will be disenfranchised by actually having to prove they are who they say they are and are, in fact, eligible to vote.  The only people who want people to be able to vote w/out having to show a valid I.D. are those who want to cheat.   You know, the crooks, the thieves, the liars... the Dems and Socialists, all the Constitution-hating rat-b*st*rds.

              "You're the ignorant one if...." I take that back.  There's no "if" to it.  You're ignorant and a liar.  Every time you post you show your abject ignorance and lack of veracity.

              Oh, and you're being your usual duplicitous self by leaving out the rest of the paragraph:

              Voter-ID laws will not prevent non-citizens from voting. Green-card holders and even illegal aliens get driver’s licenses. But that’s not an argument against voter ID. It’s an argument for issuing driver’s licenses that specify non-citizenship.

              (see? I can make big letters, too!)

              Game, set, match - ME! I destroyed your argument yet once again.  Wanna give up or are you hungry for more?

              "If you're a resident of Texas, you can get a free Voter I.D"

              You're supposed to put a source there fyi.

              "and provide proof that you are who you say you are."

              Not everyone has a gun license fyi. Only 62% ofeligible Texans have a driver's license  https://www.fhwa.dot.gov/policyinformation/pubs/hf/pl11028/chapter4.cfm see the white coloring? That shows that Texas has a very low rate of driver's license compared to other states, how is putting citizenship/non-citisenshiop on a DL going to change the fact that more than one ion three voters DO NOT HAVE IT.. Less than half of Texans have a passport: http://chartsbin.com/view/1147. How are they supposed to prove that they are who they are? Simple: They CAN'T. Unless EVERYONE boter has it, it is tyrannical and discriminatory to require it.

              "Over one-in-five eligible Texas voters who make $20,000 a year or less do not have a current photo ID that would be accepted under the current voter ID law."

              http://www.nbcnews.com/news/latino/study-over-1-5-low-income-texans-lack-eligible-voter-n196916

              You have the nerve to call me a liar for pointing out the truth? 

              And again, you should go find a college student and see their ID,your head would explode.

                dr65, that is the exact reason I voted for Trump.  Obama has put us in the toilet and electing Hillary will flush it and us.  There is not one law, regulation, executive order Odumbo put through that I agree with. 

                The only thing I say about Odumbo is his words "I am going to FUNDAMENTALLY TRANSFORM"  America and by God he did.  That transformation is not what I wanted.  He got elected and I gave him the benefit of the doubt and thought Ok, lets hope he does a good job.  Within ONE week I knew we were in trouble and it has been trouble ever since. 

                I also believe there was something very wrong with his re-election. So many were so disillusioned with him there was no way he could get a second term.  My opinion only.

                Good Riddance Obama!

                I can't wait to get out of this hellhole so i can Green laugh at nonsense like this rather than Bang Head at how ignorant my "fellow Americans" are.

                http://washingtonmonthly.com/magazine/marchapril-2012/obamas-top-50-accomplishments/

                Admittedly some of the listed accomplishments can be argued, but overall Obama has certainly been better than most recent presidents. Imagine what the country can do if we had a REAL left-wing president instead of the centrist Obama.

                  Hilda, no proof that her email server was ever hacked.

                  Tonight, near 100% certainty that at least 5 foreign countries hacked the server.

                  the emails did not give explicit details, any government's security agencies could gain much insight into other

                  even non related secrets.  I hate to see how much damage has been done and how many lives she has put at

                  risk and how many have already died.  Spy's etc.. who were killed are not reported.  How many field agents are

                  now setting in a foreign prison only to be killed or to be used as a bargaining chip in the future?

                            If you have one, bring one of the following. The ID must be current, or be expired for less than 4 years:

                                Texas driver license issued by the Department of Public Safety
                                Texas election ID certificate
                                Texas personal ID card
                                Texas license to carry a handgun
                                US military ID card with your photograph
                                US citizenship certificate containing your photograph (doesn’t need to be current)
                                US passport

                            If you don’t have any of these, you’ll need to (1) sign a sworn statement that there is a reason why you don’t have any of the IDs listed above, and (2) bring one of the following:

                                Valid voter registration certificate
                                Certified birth certificate
                                Current utility bill
                                Government check
                                Paystub or bank statement that includes your name and address
                                Copy of or original government document with your name and an address (original required if it contains a photograph).

                            Looks to me like that will exclude the hermit living in a cave 100 mile north. of El Paso, that's about it.  It will darn sure exclude those living 100 miles south of there, for sure...and that's a good thing.

                            I call you a liar because you ARE one.  I proved that multiple times, remember?  I could have done it a dozen more times but I came to the conclusion that you're too dishonest to admit it.

                            Edit to add:  Here's your link, numbnuts:  Election Identification Certificate (EIC)
