Hillary's list: An old-fashioned campaign plods ahead via @DCExaminer @Fla2ndSon Politics isn't about "fair." @trentster That's what it take to win in politics. @myboss2007 @SalenaZito @KevinSunday86 @Patrick_J_Egan Data analytics means you know if they're crossing for or against you. @KevinSunday86 @SalenaZito @Patrick_J_Egan depending on state, we can no registration of those requested and/or returned - or know region.Of course if your data and organization are that good it can tell you something. Romney camp wasn't at that level. @JustAnotherOpin Valid argument. But I was thinking more about winning the general election.We get it - the issue is whether it's effective. of One, your table is ready.> the trends were correct. And that's a key point. => "I can't believe in a country of 300 million people we've got these 2 choices." #PASEN
Retweeted by David M. Drucker @ARButtram No worries. These are things I learned from talking to Rs who tested messages to find out what works. @ARButtram No. Need to say here's the new plan to finally get reform done right.Will Trump TV start sponsoring its own media polls?Donald Trump is such a drag in some races that Republicans are threatening lawsuits over ads tying them to the guy.
Retweeted by David M. Drucker @JasonHornbuckle That too. Although I always thought he could have used that to his advantage. But doesn't matter now.At least 6,950,184 votes have been cast in the presidential election so far, per new @AP data out just now.
Retweeted by David M. Drucker @GlennThrush I loved the interview but wondered about the description in the tweet, fwiw.Another reason "repeal & replace" = bad messaging? Voters don't like #Obamacare (per polls) but they don't like what came before it, either. @redrawings Agreed. Repeal & replace is a mssg geared toward the GOP base. @redrawings The nominee certainly doesn't, and that's part of the problem. @SheboyganDude Yep. @amzieaa Probably true. But regardless, that people believe this is a reason why I don't think this news is the "issue" some are claiming.Skyrocketing #Obamacare rates could be campaign issue, if GOP nominee had run on it consistently & had replace plan voters liked/absorbed.GOP nominee pledging to "repeal & replace" #Obamacare. GOP strategists figured out 2 yrs ago the mssg doesn't work: Average Obamacare premiums to rise 22 percent
Retweeted by David M. Drucker @charlescou Weird. I have an up to date list of all of her markets and that's not on there. Nor would it make any sense whatsoever. @charlescou Are you near the border of another state? @charlescou @LPDonovan NOPE. @charlescou She might be doing some national that is showing up there but she's not doing any MS specific.Among reasons why Trump has had a low opinion of Republicans => @mikejopek I can't account for @smod2016...The RNC also has data analytics. But they're separate from Trump camp & unclear that they have any influence over his ad buying. 2/2Overlooked in lame "rigged" polls argument is Clinton's data analytics. More granular than polling.

Retweeted by David M. Drucker @FederalSpyGuy The actual pollsters conducting the polls have a vested interest in getting the race correctly. @FederalSpyGuy There's really not that wide a variation. But yes, methodologies vary. That's why you use the averages.Morning Digest: Republicans leave scandal-tarred Paul Babeu to fend for himself #AZ01

Retweeted by David M. Drucker @ArkansasSomeone Disagree. But we'll find out.A campaign that doesn't believe polling data showing it behind can't make adjustments to change the dynamic. @charlescou Not sure I see it that way, but I understand the sentiment. @ArkansasSomeone There's an election in this country every two years. @ArkansasSomeone Way too pessimistic. @ArkansasSomeone You've lost me. @JasonHornbuckle Yes. Again, I get it. @JasonHornbuckle Agreed. But the point I was making is that he's weak, which explains the polling. @JasonHornbuckle I think it's more complicated than that but he'll still win. He's weaker there than a Republican should be. @ryanbeckwith Yes, that is true. Anyway, deleted and reposted w/ proper spelling.As is counting AZ as a lock. That's the real faux pas. @ryanbeckwith Damn. ... Thank you. @William14843942 Agree and same to you. Happy to talk any time. @William14843942 Polls change because voter attitudes change. That's pretty standard. The averages account for all of that. @William14843942 That's why you rely on the polling averages. And they're not all over place - the trend is consistent.Key word here is "coordinated." That it's well-coordinated is a bonus. @ArkansasSomeone Don't allow yourself to be fooled.Pay no attn to the polling data behind the curtain. - from an era when college liberals didn't believe in safe spaces & trigger warnings.'The radical inside the system': Tom Hayden, protester, politician Fonda husband dies at 76
