Is this an internal poll? then we should apply the -5 rule
No, but it is a Democratic leaning pollster.

Still pretty good, though.

It's as much of an 'Internal poll' as PPP's non-comissioned polls are: not at all.  People just insist D-bias and call it 'might as well be an internal' to have an excuse to discredit it.

I called it an 'internal' not because I believe it's inaccurate like Wulfric, but they probably selectively release their results. Of course, that doesn't matter in this instance as it's their last poll of the cycle.

Oh I am not discrediting the poll at all. But the internals released/leaked are usually the outliers, hence t he -5 rule

Let me guess, RCP won't include this even after including like 10 Republican polls today.

It would be smart to stop going to and mentioning RCP, they are a disgusting partisan hack website. I have avoided them all of the 2016 election cycle, and have been going to HuffPost pollster.

I like that they exclude most of the junk polls like the Google ones, Reuters, etc. By contrast, 538's poll database is essentially unusable due to the fact that they have no standards whatsoever. But yeah, they clearly have their thumb on the scale a bit for the GOP.

I like 538's approach. They enter every poll but weight the score based on the pollster's past performance. So the newer fly by night polling shops don't impact the score much.

Great result from a good firm but I don't know why they wouldn't wait another week before doing their final poll.

It's nice to see a couple of double-digit leads popping up from time to time. I doubt that will be the result, but at least this should mean the race probably isn't tightening much.

Polls like this led to the meltdowns and sobbing at the Javits Center and elsewhere on Election Night.

Many people act as if Evangelical Christianity was invented by Jerry Falwell to get Christians to vote Republican.  It wasn't.  We've been around long before the Republican Party and we'll be here after the GOP dissolves.  We exist on all Continents and speak many different languages.  Don't let your hatred for the GOP tarnish your view of a diverse international religious movement.
