And now Democrats are underpolled!!!!
Yes, that statement is true, Redtroll.


How Nevada continues to be even remotely competitive is beyond me.  
NV isn't competitive. A 5 point margin is fairly normal for Nevada. Additionally, polls underestimate Democrats in NV often.

In every competitive election I've followed, Democrats overperform their polling in Nevada. Sometimes by a little and sometimes by a lot.

You use that argument to put yourself in a no-lose spot, regardless of what the poll says.

1). Poll comes out showing Democrats up by a lot. You say, "Nice, Dems up big!!"

2). Poll comes out showing Democrats up by a little. You say, "Don't worry. Dems always underpoll in Nevada. They are up big!!!"

3). Poll comes out showing Democrats losing. You'd say, "Nah. Dems always underpoll in Nevada. They are up by a little bit, maybe even up big!!"

What's the point of polling Nevada then?

There is a reason we haven't seen much polling out of the state this cycle.
