I do think the dens are in a descent spot considering we have many disadvantages in the system. It's going to be one hell of a fight.
That being said, I have not seen one good argument for why GE polls mean anything. It truly is common sense that they are meaningless. I mean no disrespect by that but this is just the corporate media and other entities muddying the water.
1) Do you really think polls taken from over a year out are meaningful? I just don't see how except the issue side of them. This is admitted by everyone, including pollsters.
2) Do you really think Sanders has been vetted nationally? That really shoots your whole premise down. There are direct quotes from Sanders and videos of him that are hidden by jury here. The republicans don't care about du juries. He will be vetted nationally at some point. You are comparing polls that contrast the most vetted politician in history with someone who has never been vetted nationally.
