Go back and look at the polls before Reagan had a landslide victory over Carter.

They stopped public polling on the Friday before the election in 1980, thus missing the last minute shift to Reagan. We live in a different era now, both in terms of the frequency and sophistication of polling, and in terms of a very different voter demographic.

So much so that TMZ (okay I know and I question the legitimacy at this point in time) has reported that Hillary has cancelled the election night fireworks.

Here's the link anyway: Hillary Clinton Pulls Plug On Election Night Fireworks | TMZ.com

Reagan wasn't trailing in the vast majority of the polls, the way Trump has been the entire time. Yes, there was the out of step LA Times tracking poll, and a handful of other outliers here and there but generally speaking, it's been a sea of blue.

RealClearPolitics - Election 2016 - General Election: Trump vs. Clinton

You can see a graphic of all the 1980 polls here, showing a clear lead for Reagan despite the cherry picked outlier showing one with a big lead for Carter that is used to make the claim that the polls were wrong.

But hey, I'm fine with Trumpkins insisting he's going to win. It will make tomorrow night all the sweeter.

No, it isn't. Look at realclearpolitics.com. They do an average of all polls. That's where I look.

I would love to see Trump run all over her. It would be worth it just to see the concession speech from Hillary - there is no way she could keep her act together and the tears streaming down Obama's face in the background would make it all worth it!

We don't have long to wait. We will know tomorrow evening or early Wednesday morning.
