2. Ok... he just went through the list of the ways Repukes can shift the popular vote

1. Voter Suppression - we know this is real and has been happening more aggressively with each election
2. A "Comey announcement" - With William Barr as AG this is certain.
3. Targeted Propaganda using Facebook data - ding ding ding... The Russians are getting really good at this
Ones he SHOULD have mentioned but didn't
4. African American turnout - if we nominate someone at the top who doesn't speak to the issues of African Americans or for whom they have a fondness ...
5. The selection of someone "too far left" to make those independents go to the polls and vote

And then at the end, he says "who cares. We don't need to win by 17, it doesn't matter if we can trust those polls, we just need to win" indicating that Biden lead by 17 the same as Warren or Sanders.

And that, right these, is BULLSHIT. It matters a great deal. Why bother listing all of the things that show Trump closing that margin if the "margin doesn't matter?" Of course it matters. I think we can safely lop off 12 points from that polling lead due to the factors listed above... and it really matters in those battleground states because the Orange Asshole might still squeak out an electoral college win even losing the popular vote by as much as 10 M.
