Donald Trump is human voter suppression. (I use human only in the loosest definition)

So those polls in KY, NE, IA, IN, GA, MO,… that show Hillary lagging are meant to suppress turnout in those states? Is that what Rand is suggesting? How dare the press manipulate the populace that way… When will our populace be educated enough to ignore the mental midgets who want to access the levers of power?

I’m confused. Wouldn’t hearing “our guy is losing now” inspire more people to vote?

Yes, because if there was anything America was wondering, it was “Whatever happened to that other fraud? No, not Rubio. No, not Cruz. The other one that everyone knew was a gigantic nothing.”

There are conspiracies everywhere. Nothing (not even shit) “happens” unless it is part of some grand design in Randworld.

Oh Geez Rand, that Kentucky business was just bad polling. What you’re trying to do is fire up the base with misinformation. How typical.

Ru Paul would have made a better senator.

No, RP, the polls are meant to show that Donnie is getting bigly yugely, thumped by a sickly crooked girl…

That’s all.

For an eye doctor, you don’t seem to see too well…

I have been very worried since last winter that, if the polling looks like a break-away win for HRC, Dems won’t bother to vote, thinking “well, we’re gonna win anyway so I don’t need to add my single vote to the mix”. So I’m happy to see any reporting of the race tightening up!

But if Rand is right, Republicans really are odd ducks. “We’re not going to win so we’re not going to vote” makes no sense and, if that’s their mindset, polling is the least of their troubles. Of course, a solid ground game would have door knocking and phone banking with people telling their voting base “there’s far more of us than they think so let’s make sure we get out there and vote to show them!”

But Donald knows bestest because he’s more smarterest than I am.

“When we say over and over someone can’t win, that is a form of rigging in the sense that it is designed to suppress turnout,” Paul said in an interview

Or, you know, it’s just telling the truth. SMH

Ayn Rand would have been better… well, after she got cancer, anyway, and started believing in government programs.

Maybe he can self-certify Trumpet as the winner.

I guess only polls which show both candidates dead even are “fair” to these poor disenfranchised white Republicans…

Public opinion has a well-known liberal bias.
