I decided to do another poll, this time at the mall

and I was especially interested in collecting enthusiasm data.

Here's what I found.

80% of the people I asked were voting for Hillary.

20% either ignored me, or said "Lady, I'm just trying to shop here."

As far as enthusiasm with the Hillary voters,

10 people were willing to give me a high five.

5 people smiled.

2 people asked me if I was a real pollster.

1 asked me for directions to a store.

Nobody was willing to do jumping jacks on camera, except a four year old who also did summersaults and sang me a song as well.

GOTV

how can we replicate your methods? Maybe on table with both Trump and Clinton boxes, etc.

Any suggestions?

Percentages can be very deceiving - I prefer raw numbers until the size of the sample is large - like over 1000.

Giving us all a poll we can believe in, the best poll ever! We can all hope the 20% are shopping instead of voting on election day.

Keep up the good work.
