Most pundits read the polls by age and sex and race groups, which may explain why most pundits missed the Trumping of the Republican Party. Me? Well...
Let's look at the Reuters tracking poll, which showed Hillary up by 2.9 points (36.8% to 33.8%) on Friday.
But among married people, Trump was up by 9.1 points (41.8% to 32.7%).
How can this be? He has been married three times, while she enjoys a rock steady marriage that has lasted more than 40 years.
That's half the people Reuters polled. Among likely voters, 54% were married.
Trump is also up among divorced or separated people by 2 points (38% to 36%).
He also takes the widows by 6 points (40% to 34%).
Add the people up who are or have been married, and that is 67% of the people polled.
Where Hillary rakes is among the 33% who never married, where she is up by 15.6% (40.1% to 24.5%).
But among that crowd, 35.4 percent will vote for neither of them. Maybe they are Berning for Sanders. Maybe they will stay home.
Some would suggest that Trump pander to the never marrieds. I say continue to do what he is doing to attract the majority of the 67% who have been married at least once. They outnumber the unmarried two to one, and that means there are more undecideds in number than among the unmarried.
A plurality of married people prefer Trump.
The Bill Clinton effect?
