Making the Biden/Trump gap larger wouldn't necessarily make them less correct if they reported a large percent of undecideds instead. I agree it looks bad, but it has to be studied on it's merits

There's more to a poll than just a number for each candidate. Look at how they got to their numbers and compare it to how that demographic actually voted and you will see they were majorly wrong. For example FL Cubans +55 above.

Yet we should all disavow the partisan republican polls despite underestimating Trump, while the extremely unbiased MSM pollsters that were off by 5-15 points must be explained by the 3% undecideds.

By percentage or by total numbers? Numbers were close to records across the board, no?

I believe both. The Hispanic/Cuban vote alone is a huge chunk of that.

So tell me - which way will OH vote? The Cookies have already spoken.
I think OH votes for Trump and Biden wins nationally, breaking the 14 win streak. OH has been shifting right while the country has been shifting left.
Bur more critically, no R has ever won without OH.
Should have bet the parlay.

Lol tell me about it. I actually believe he was dishonest and skewed his numbers pro Trump without data to support it, but it paid off.

@CountValentine Even though you called off the bet, I will be a mench (gentleman) and honor my agreement. $1 to you, please PM details. Alternatively, $36 donation to charity.

Not necessary but nice of you. Consider my $1 part of your $36 donation.
After all this it is the charities that are the winners as it should be.
