I guess the only way to know would be to ask them. But I don't respond to polls now myself, because any poll I have responded to turned out to be a push poll trying to get me to vote for a certain proposition. And particularly for propositions with hidden little gotchas that benefit the authors greatly.

I never liked or paid any attention to push polls or even over night polls. Most of them are held with a certain result in mind. I stick with the nationally recognized and credited polling firms. Then it isn't just one, I go with averaging all the recent polls together, RCP is excellent site for this as is Nate Silvers 538. 270 to win, Larry Sabato will give you his polls and then the results of 5 or 6 other polls, prognosticators and how they view things.

Many, many more.

Interesting discussion of the "clean hands" doctrine that says you can't create a problem and then go into court and sue because you claim to be a victim of that problem.

Why Trump Will Lose When He Contests Election Results

His failure will be because he and AG Barr have blatantly done several things to try to rig the election for his benefit. This very experienced prosecutor explains that the courts will all dismiss any claims the election was rigged against him, because he has "dirty hands" from trying to rig the election himself.

He told people to vote for him twice, and Barr said "he didn't know if that was illegal". Trump has actually done this several times: Said something stupid and then sent his lawyers to court to argue something else, and all the judges have sent them packing because of his earlier statements. He's his own worst enemy!

He is, obviously, counting on "his" judges to take care of him.

So glad It wasnít Sanders as the nominee. To old for the office... Nothing to do with his proposals mind you.

In all honesty, Iím glad weíre finally seeing the full venal hypocrisy with both right wing partiesí nominees tonight. Crazier and darker than Iíd imagine it could be.

Iíd put money on Trump by a nose. This ainít killing off a left challenge in your rigged house like the primaries were. Bidenís got no ground game in the primaries or now in the general. Feels like a replay of 2016 but with pudding.
