It's sort of remarkable, but it's true: About 10 percent of those who think Donald Trump isn't qualified to be president plan to support him anyway. There are a lot of implications to that bit of data, pulled from our September Post-ABC poll, but we can best consider them through the lens of new data from Pew Research, which dives deep into how voters view the candidates.
One of the most insightful articles about polling this cycle comes from the New York Times' Upshot team. With raw poll data from Florida in hand, Upshot asked four different pollsters to interpret the results. The data each pollster used was the same, and the Upshot's analysis figured that it showed a 1-point lead for Hillary Clinton in the state.
The way psychics and con artists work is they use small things to build into a bigger picture. They let you believe something little and then leverage that little thing to reinforce the broader narrative they're hoping to trick you into. Wait, how could the fortune teller know that you had an uncle whose name started with J?
One of the questions rippling under the surface of the 2016 campaign is how Donald Trump -- a candidate unlike any other in modern presidential history and a candidate who has broken nearly every norm to get to where he is -- ended up as the Republican Party's presidential nominee.
This quote, from a spectacular Bloomberg story about the Donald Trump campaign's final electoral push, neatly summarizes the giant gamble that the campaign is taking: "There's really not that much of a difference between politics and regular marketing," an unnamed senior offical told Bloomberg's Joshua Green and Sasha Issenberg.
Early voting is great for campaigns because it gives them a few extra days or weeks to get foot-dragging supporters to the polls. It offsets the risks of late-campaign surprises too, since a vote that's cast early is a vote that can't be changed.
By early March 2012, Americans were telling The Post that they figured President Obama would be reelected. Obama had a slight lead in the RealClearPolitics average at that point, but the assumption that Obama would win came from a poll The Post conducted with ABC News in which Mitt Romney had a slight lead.
Hamilton Spectator WASHINGTON - Once upon a time, Donald Trump had a vision for the Upper West Side of Manhattan. He'd build a huge development that would be called "Trump City," a collection of highrise apartment buildings set back from the Hudson River behind the West Side Highway with a skyscraper at the southern end.
Dan Scavino does social media for Donald Trump's campaign. His expertise is Social Engagement™ and Twitter And Such™, not polling -- which may be one reason why he tends to tweet about polls less frequently than other members of Team Trump. He should have tweeted about polls one less time than he did today.

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
