Another poll showing Trump and Clinton neck and neck.

 

Really?  The pollster can't utter the two additional syllables it takes to say "Gary Johnson" rather than "Other"?

Because it's really a "Trump vs Hillary" poll.

Another poll showing Trump and Clinton neck and neck.

For what it is worth, that age demographic projections are a little unrealistic. Projects that only 12% of the voters will be ages 18-29.

2012 put that demo at 19%.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/special/politics/2012-exit-polls/table.html

2008 had it at 18%

http://www.cnn.com/ELECTION/2008/results/polls.main/

2004 had it at 17%

http://www.cnn.com/ELECTION/2004/pages/results/states/US/P/00/epolls.0.html

My guess is that their likely voter screen puts too much weight on past voting behavior for determining the lv's.

Edit:

I would use 17% for 18-29 and adjust the others accordingly.

The racial demographics are better than the age demographics, but I think I would use 69 to 71% white, 12 to 13% for african american, and 11 to 14% hispanic, 3% asian and 2% other rather than the numbers this poll uses. It appears the pollster just got a little lazy and used the 2012 numbers.

Again, it's not clear whether the numbers below the actual results are raw or adjusted.

It should be considered a good thing to garner support from a group of people who are overwhelmingly law abiding tax payers who own homes. But...white people!

You do realize that you completely missed the point, right?

That's because most people are idiots like me and have no clue who Gary Johnson is.

You might very well be an idiot, but that has nothing to do with knowing or not knowing who Gary Johnson is.

Just curious, but as a self-proclaimed idiot do you feel that you deserve the right to vote?

The official Democrat platform backs voting rights for idiots, felons and dead people. They add to the base.

Why wouldn't idiots be allowed to vote?  Idiots have the right to vote, speak, own guns, not have to quarter soldiers, etc.

The only problem with that is the highly educated liberal elite have made Hillary the nominee and she's really pretty much center/center-left with big ties to Wall Street. Also, there's the billion dollars her and Bill have extorted gathered in donations from various cronies and even foreign businesses and governments. If this group is "so liberal" why did they put a corrupt hawkish middle of the road person up to run instead of a true socialist?
