The media obsession with polls, “horse races” and determining who’s up and/or down continues.
The Hill has given us the latest read on how this presidential campaign will turn out.
The conclusion? Polling data may be skewed beyond all recognition because of the high unfavorable ratings of both major-party nominees-to-be.
The pollsters are having difficulty taking their findings to the bank. Republican presumptive nominee Donald J. Trump’s favorable ratings are in the tank; Democratic frontrunner Hillary Rodham Clinton’s plus-side scores are right behind Trump’s.
Voters’ fickleness puts more guesswork into the polling, according to The Hill.
Will it be a high-turnout or low-turnout election? My own guess is that it’ll be the latter. Voters might decide the choices between the major-party picks are so dismal that they’ll just sit it out. They might not want to consider a third option because that ticket has no chance of winning.
Then again …
Some pollsters think the turnout will be high as voters are motivated to vote against the other candidate.
The anti-Clinton voter bloc will be set to vote for Trump. And vice versa.
All of this seems to be the ingredients tailor-made for a patently miserable campaign.
Hey, hasn’t Trump himself declared he has no intention to “change”?
My fellow Americans … we are in for a rough ride to the finish line.
