7. Polls that ask the public who THEY would vote for against Trump are valuable. But...

 

...these polls that ask Dems who they think OTHER people will vote for are pointless, IMO. I wish they'd stop doing these. If a pollster wants to know how Warren (or whoever) would do against Trump, let them ask voters who they would vote for in that matchup. Not who they think other people would vote for in that matchup. One accurately reflects the current strengths of the candidates, the other reflects nothing of value.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Elizabeth Warren
