    Polls

    In 2016 the polls had Clinton winning by a landslide but President Trump won handily. You'd think after that, maybe the media would look at poll results with a wary eye. For the past several weeks all you hear on the news are poll results. It's like they hang on every poll that's taken. One result or another, I'll be glad when the mid-terms are over. So sick of all the speculation and name calling. Politics seem to have gotten dirtier each election cycle. It's a disgusting thing to watch.

    We record everything so we can fast forward through the adverts for ALL of the crooked politician.

    The only Poll that really counts is the one on Election Day.

    Not sure who they are polling. Most people don't answer their phone unless it's a number they recognize.

    I talked to one of the Gallop Poll people a few years back and asked him how they did their polls. He said they were paid to make them show whatever the person having the poll done wanted so they would pick out places and people that they knew backed that person or whatever it was they wanted done and that would give them the results they wanted.

    And it has gotten to the point that you cannot trust that poll any longer.

    There were reports of voting machines not accepting the vote that person input. This happened in the 2016 election too.

    And where the election is close, you have these mysterious ballots appearing out of no where that were not originally counted.

    What a crock of crap.

    Arizona: 'Juan Hidalgo' Voted 98,087 Times:

    PHOENIX (CNN) - Arizona Democrats on Friday bristled at GOP accusations of voter fraud in the hotly contested race between Democrat Kyrsten Sinema and Republican Martha McSally.

    The GOP charges come as a result of the tabulation of 98,087 (and counting) votes by "Juan Hidalgo" across several Arizona counties.

    "This is nothing more than a typical ploy by Republicans to deny ethnic voters their right. 'Juan Hidalgo' is a common name in Arizona - I know at least a few hundred myself," said Arizona Democrat Party Executive Director, Herschel Fink.

    As the vote count goes into the fourth day, Arizona election officials continue to tally late provisional votes, as well as 'slow-coming' machine votes in primarily- Democrat districts.
