Clinton, Trump in dead heat in polls ahead of first debate

Two new polls raised the stakes for Monday nights first presidential debate — with Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump locked in a virtual tie and one-third of likely voters saying the face-off could determine their choice.

  • That actually means Trump’s up by 5. The Witch still has an edge in the Electoral College, though.

    • I am doubtful of the polling frankly, my suspicion is that a great many people will not bother to be honest with pollsters.

      A lot of people are ignored by the pollsters and vice versa.

    I have gotten several telephone polling calls in the last few weeks and I think I figured out the scam.
    The pollsters ask a few leading question to see if you are leaning toward Hillary or not, and then if you are leaning Hillary they get to the point and you are off the phone in about 3 Minutes.
    If however, you seem to be leaning Trump, they pile on with the pointless questions and after about 15 minutes, and they are still going, most people just hang up on them.
    If you hang up on them its an incomplete poll and they don’t use ANY of the info.
    This alone would short Trump numbers by a lot.
    I think most of the polls this year are garbage.
