  •  registered voters vote (0+ / 0-)

    90% of RV's end up voting in presidential elections.  It wouldn't end up being a big problem if the poll weeds out voters from both sides roughly equally, but as the democratic party becomes more and more reliant on younger and minority voters, voters who are more likely to be screened out, and the republican party more reliant on older white voters, voters who are more likely to be kept in, the worse the LV polls will become.  If, in fact, the younger and minority RV's actually did vote significantly less than older white voters, then the LV screens would be useful, but in a high turnout presidential race, this is simply just not the case, at least to the degree we see in the current LV screens.
