Ignore the polls and get out there and #Vote on November 6th. Relying on polling is a relic of a time gone by.
I’m not saying looking at @FiveThirtyEight’s model and charts and stuff isn’t cool, because it is and provides some insight. But no matter what the numbers say, it’s most certainly NEVER an excuse to not #Vote because you feel your peeps are a “lock”
Need nothing further than to point to 2016. Which by the way, @FiveThirtyEight didn’t really have wrong, but the “selected not elected” mindset existed before 2016. Why else would over 100 million people choose NOT to participate in their civic duty to choose their leaders.

I've spent some time observing amateur religious apologetics, and my feeling is that #science and apologetics are precise opposites.

Science starts with observation and reaches conclusion.

Apologetics start with a conclusion and re-interpret observations to fit.
The same rational method (starting from a conclusion) is observable in other types of denialism. #FlatEarthers are a clear illustration, as they reinterpret everything we know about our Solar System, but you see it in vaccine denial and AIDS denialist movements.
Lastly, I think you can see it in how we rationalize our political positions. You may have noticed that no matter what Trump does, his base find a charitable or positive interpretation. Same is no doubt true for past Democratic presidents.
