Both parties have held their conventions and the mano-a-mano contest has started in earnest. The Cook Political Report’s Amy Walter joins the Horse Race to tell us where the race stands and where it might go. This week also features an extended edition of Ad of the Week: we look at seven ads in three races to explore different techniques strategists use to communicate a message in the context of a competitive, multi-ad race. Only on The Horse Race!

    It isn’t “Shy Trump Voter,” it’s the “Contemptuous Trump Voter” who has stopped responding to pollsters or lies to pollsters. And not all of us are non-college sorts.

    Interesting takes. Thanks.

    A note – the podcast that downloaded from the superfeed was nearly four hours long. It looked like multiple copies made it in, several of them partial.

    We have an old-school landline and we get pollsters calling us on it. For several elections now, I have been saying “I don’t do polls,” and I hang up.

    I just started after 2016, so I was counted in the polls in the last Presidential election. I am not in this one.
