    Interesting, I had seen Charlie Cook on a special broadcast with Chuck Todd and he was also very accurate on that broadcast. His website has a subscription that is pay to read, over $300 but I was considering getting it next time as I couldn't trust the polling this time.

    Yeah, I guess a poll can be pretty close when an election is rigged...huh? I mean, if a poll says I should have ten apples and I've only got three apples, I can run out and buy seven more apples so my number of apples jives with what the poll says I should have. When the polling agencies are bought off by the president and his minions and work in concert with the president and his minions (along with the media), it's easy to get an accurate poll number. That's how Hitler did it. He made sure the polls said he'd get such and such amount of the vote and, walla, he got that much of the vote. And, that's pretty much standard practice with most of your everyday common dictators.
