14. As cool as this is, anyone getting excited about polls didn't live through 2016.

 

If feels really emotionally good to see hopeful news. But if 2016, when Trumps predicted change of winning on Election eve was minuscule, is that polls don't matter. No just now that it is early. But ever.

Whether the polls were just wrong, or election interference made the difference, or any other reason, the fact is polls are wrong just as often as they are right.

This isn't meant to be discouraging. It's about VIGILANCE.
