Eyes on the Prize, not the Polls!

Long-time Democratic strategist Simon Rosenberg was on MSNBC the other night saying the polls this year (especially 538) are understating how well Dems are doing, and that early voting (which is very encouraging) is a better indicator.
Victor Shi, iGenpolitics Strategy Director, says the same thing.
In any case, we should ignore polls and just focus on turning out the vote these last few crucial days!
