interesting revelations about voting irregularities as observed by foreigners-- The Left (NAACP, UN groups) brought in poll watchers from 60 countries to watch for voting opportunity denials, BUT what they observed SURPRISED: 1) they found it TOO EASY to vote here-- often too little valid I.D. required versus abroad (fingerprint I.D, etc.) 2) they felt that it there was too much chance of voting more than once here, such as early voting AND same day voting, without valid checks 3) they sensed NO REAL EVIDENCE OF voter suppression, notwithstanding Leftist mythology to the contrary

Someone should take a poll asking Americans how they feel about polling. I’m pretty sure our shared distaste for it is one thing about which nearly all of us would agree.

Of all the polling data released in the week leading up to Tuesday’s election, the one that struck me as most revealing came from pollster Scott Rassmussen. Not because it conveyed anything new about voters’ opinions about the candidates, but because it portrayed the seriousness of our political divide.

Mr. Rasmussen asked Americans this crucial question: “Has the upcoming election negatively affected any relationship with a friend or family member?”
