Polls in the last week of any election
I went to Real Clear Politics and saw that the race was tightening and getting real close. But I also noticed that all of the polls that previously had Hillary winning by double digits were not listed. Yet all of those that favored Trump were listed.
So I don't believe that the race has tightened as much as they say.
Four years ago, the same thing happened. My Republican co-worker had come in smiling because the polls had tightened in the last week, and it was for the same reason. Many R's, including Mittens, thought that the R's were going to win, and some thought by a landslide. The good polls that are more accurate usually don't appear in the last week so it appears that things are tightening.
So I don't believe it is as close as they say. But I DO hope that it makes everyone get out and vote.
