So, your vote doesn't count?

So, I watched a little TV last night, and Rachel Maddow was on.  She started with the state of Mississippi, which was quite surprising (2 for Trump, within the margin of error).  But then came Texas.  In polls there, Hillary Clinton gained OVER 2 points - a state long considered very safe for Trump.  Good news, right?

There's some sobering news, though - and it rests entirely on YOU.  

Y'see, polls are just that - really best guesses as to the outcome of an election. When the margin gets below plus or minus 3.5 percent, things get a little murky.  When things are dead even (this is actually happening in Ohio) you might as well flip a coin.

Or, you can vote.

Election Day is Tuesday, November 8, 2016.  Register and vote - please!
