Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The western states do not exactly have much value in terms of perceptions management. The management of perceptions can otherwise swing both ways. The perception of a democratic victory may well have depressed Republican turnout in states like New Mexico, Colorado, Nevada, while depressing Democratic turnout in Alaska.

I agree on banning polls, preferably in the entire last week before the election.

In the end, Americans have a more radical conception of freedom of speech than we do. So they arrange their democracy accordingly. It's not a topic I feel very deeply about, as long as it's going on over there and not here in Europe.
