  •  It's the obsession with reading tea leaves (0+ / 0-)

    Isn't Renacci going dark for the rest of the election?  The internal doesn't jive with that so it's assumed that it's a desperation stunt despite the candidate himself effectively conceding.

    •  I was confused by the presentation on DKE (0+ / 0-)

      "but, if nothing else, it does in fact confirm that he is still alive." - without the disclaimer of it being a questionable poll like all polls without a reality check, I thought it meant he was alive in the election and not alive as in heart-still-beating alive.

      Someone also said he was only going dark only on broadcast while maintaining ads on cable, but Renacci's argument about voters reaching a saturation point was bogus.  Making you wonder if he ran out of money or is conceding.  

      Then the finance report from Oct. 1st-17th shows Renacci spending nearly 700K from Oct. 1st-17th also doesn't jive with the, "I quit running ads" thing.  

      The details look pretty muddied to me.  It'd be nice if someone from OH-16 could cut a cleaner picture for us.  But yeah my problem was the poll being presented without a disclaimer and then the confusing language used.  Then not getting an answer why there was no disclaimer is bothersome.
