Number 1 in particular is false for the vast majority of voters.

​Are you really willing to bet not only your life but the continuation of
the entire human race on the validity of a poll taken 3​

​months before the election? If you think there is more than a 16.6%​

a third party candidate than you would play Russian Roulette.
