Don’t let Operation Demoralize get you down.
It’s still two months until the election, folks, and polls can change dramatically, particularly toward the end, when they know they have to get it right, and stop oversampling Democrats.

Spreading fear and despondency. Don’t fall for it.
Talking about Romney already having lost – what, a week after the nomination? Really? – only makes the libertarians say, “Oh, I won’t soil myself with voting for him, then. I’ll vote for Gary Johnson.” It makes the social conservatives say, “I’ll stay home and pray for the country.” It makes the doom and gloom crowd say, “I won’t vote. I’ll buy ammo and be ready to fight the civil war.”
Yeah, praying and arming yourselves won’t ever hurt (talk of civil war might), but deciding not to vote on the basis of skewed polls and smarmy Journolist spin is just stupid. And amplifying and giving credence to the MSM spin when you KNOW the polls are beyond flawed and that the Justice Department has its jackboots into the pollsters is criminal. Yes, criminal. It’s spreading fear and despondency.
Do you feel scared at times? Do you wonder if we’ve gone too far? Do you wonder if we can’t win? Everyone does. Do you not want to delude yourselves? No one does.
But we already have a disadvantage in not having a dedicated media. MUST you amplify the media? What is the point of fear and despondency but to make our side give up?
The signs are against the polls. The very success of the 2016 documentary is against the polls. The registration momentum is against the polls.
Is America going to go back after Obama because he gave a speech? Oh, for heaven’s sake, even the MSM admitted it wasn’t a good speech. That’s why they played on Clinton extensively.
I live in a red area in the middle of a blue area. Four years ago you couldn’t walk down the street without seeing Obama’s signs everywhere. Now there are two in the entire neighborhood. Are there Romney signs? Well, no. But there aren’t Romney signs at my house either. I have cars and outdoor cats. Vandals always strike Republican signs. It’s who they are. However there are a lot of signs for the local republican candidate to city council. Perhaps I’m stupid in reading these as proxies, but I don’t think so.
They’re not enthusiastic. They’ve got nothing. Nothing except propaganda. Amplifying the propaganda will make them enthusiastic again. It will destroy turnout and interest on our side, too. Is that what you want?
It’s pointless to pay any attention to polls right now. They won’t start to come into line with reality until the last few days before the election.
