Consider the source, though.

The only argument this entire election for your Walker prediction has been "ignore every poll but the one that shows Walker doing OK because every other poll shows him losing."

They should use you in poli sci classes as the Gold Standard in how to not interpret polls. Classic confirmation bias if I ever saw it. That is, unless you're just trolling, which is the most probable answer here, in which case you should just go in a Hall Of Fame for assholes.

C'mon, Virginia. You know better than to defend Emerson of all pollsters. Why is it trolling to doubt their numbers while throwing less doubt to Marquette?

It's not about Emerson. It's just about this behavior of deciding what you want and then selectively tossing out anything that challenges that view. It's clear as day with you.

She's right, though. The fact that you even dismissed the Marist poll (which as almost as good as MU) is telling.

Emerson is landline only. Empty quote this if you have a landline.

“There are two ideas of government. There are those who believe that, if you will only legislate to make the well-to-do prosperous, their prosperity will leak through on those below. The Democratic idea, however, has been that if you legislate to make the masses prosperous, their prosperity will find its way up through every class which rests upon them." - WJB 1896

They use an online component to simulate calling cellphones. Not great, but better than they were.

For the sake of all of us (especially our WI posters) I hope this won’t be one of those all-nighters, regardless of who wins.

Countdown timer to Joni Ernst's victory speech

Remember when MT Treasurer spent months and months telling us all that Heitkamp is favored and will easily win because of retail politics (TM).

Sorry to say MT Treasurer, but you aren't as intelligent as you think. You can write a lot of posts but that doesn't mean what you say will come

This is ironic. However, their margins of defeat will vary. Wagner looks set to lose by ~20-25 points, but Walker and Scott will keep their losing margins to within 5 points or so.

Probably not Phil though.

It's a funny coincidence though if it happens. It's like the inverse of 2014 when every Mark lost, except for Mark Warner who almost lost.

Yep, I'm thinking this is what's going on too. Just like the shy Trump voter effect struck in most of the Midwest.
