On the eve of the Alabama Senate election, Doug Jones and Roy Moore may beat each other by double digits, depending on which poll you read. That’s not unprecedented, but it’s definitely strange to see such a wide range between simultaneously released polls. It means one thing for sure: polling isn’t an effective indicator of results.
We learned this last year when pretty much every major poll showed Hillary Clinton defeating Donald Trump, often by a large margin. That, of course, wasn’t the case. With the Moore-Jones battle, it’s even wider with polls showing the leader up by 9-10 points. The problem is that different polls show different leaders.
In a mobile phone world, it’s often a very tight section of a population that can even get polled since a majority of them are carried out through landline telephones. Even the polls that include mobile devices cannot be relied upon because those within a geography based upon their phone number may be out of the state altogether.
There’s one more thing we know for sure. Whatever happens tomorrow, it’s going to be crazy and talked about for a long time.
One day before Alabama’s closely watched Senate special election between Republican Roy Moore and Democrat Doug Jones, two new polls were published — one from Fox News showing Jones leading by 10 points and another from Emerson showing Moore up by 9 .
Background: Since the Washington Post first reported about alleged sexual misconduct by Moore, polls in Alabama have been going back and fourth between both candidates. So who’s really leading? The old addage applies: it all comes down to turnout.
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
