Are you going to see your car mechanic in the event you need brain surgery just because pollsters got it wrong? Will you be seeing a gardener for any future dental work? Will you be listening to random idiots on a forum for information on Climate Change? Just curious.

I remember something happening days before the election that the polls didn't have time to reflect.
She was gonna win in a landslide, remember?

And HOW MANY days before the election did something happen?

What the polls REALLY did not reflect was how hated Hillary was.

The American economy was SHRINKING until Real GDP started GROWING, which did not take place until the blue line in the graph CROSSES the zero line, and that did not happen until well into the SECOND quarter of 2009, mathematical illiterate. I'm utterly baffled that you don't understand this. It is a VERY simple point. Let me repeat it for you, for about the twentieth time: If Real GDP Growth is negative, the economy is SHRINKING.

No one in their right mind would say that their retirement account was 'improving' if it was shrinking. Maybe you would, but no one in their right mind would.

Are you still disputing that the job market WORSENED from May to June in that year of 2009? On what basis? It also worsened from August to September.
The economy bottomed out in Q4 2008 and started improving, the jobs market bottomed out in March 2009 and started improving. Those are mathematical facts no number of lies will change that.

Does this mean you will be seeking out a car mechanic in the event that you need brain surgery? Because pollsters got it wrong?

Something happened 11 days before the election

Another theory that was floated was that folks were not honest about who they were voting for. According to pewresearch.org,--The idea of so-called “shy Trumpers” suggests that support for Trump was socially undesirable, and that his supporters were unwilling to admit their support to pollsters.

Who could blame these shy-tRumpers? Their embarrassment is understandable.

Polls don't take 11 days.

If it was 11 hours, THEN you might have a valid argument...

The polls just could not measure the hatred that America had for Hillary.

America was not fond of Trump, either.

But, we just did not want Obamas third term...
