Delusional or just trolling?

"Reuters/Ipsos Poll Update shows gigantic blue wave-Dems have massive 13 point edge! 46-34!"

Link: https://www.democraticunderground.com/100210853148

Seems they haven't learned from 2016 and will automatically believe any poll that tells them what they want to hear. I certainly remember them dismissing Reuters in 2016 when the Reuter polls had Trump with shouting distance of the HillHag.

1. Lefty wouldn't tout stuff like this if he understood its effect on the electorate.

It makes other lefties feel confident to the point they don't think they need to be bothered to vote, while on the other hand it convinces those on the right that voting is an absolute necessity.

2. as always, this is going to be all about voter turnout.

If the good for nothing fascist assholes actually show up to vote, history will again allow the minority party to gain control over congress.
I see the fascist left (dimocrats) diminishing their odds a little bit more every single day with their outrageous, stupid, and violent outbursts. this is seriously turning off the independents and patriots.
It'll be pretty hard for dimcorats to fuck this up and lose it, but at the rate they are going, I honestly won't be surprised if congress stays right about where it sits right now... lefty is doing his damnedest to screw this up

3. The country is so split by geography there is no way to have an accurate generic poll.

5. What are you jabbering about?

The House is 435 elections so any supposed generic poll is meaningless.

9. No shit sherlock.

You still have to win a majority of them and that is far from a done deal nor does a generic ballot question indicate dems can pick up seats.
