BILL O'REILLY (HOST):  Now, before we get to the specifics of the debate with you. Were you surprised that the Time magazine snap poll and WCBSTV  snap poll, which is a CBS flag ship here in New York, had Trump winning fairly substantially? 

CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: Of course not. Because they are totally meaningless. These are online polls. These are not random samples. The only thing that means anything and even the randomly sampled polls have their problems. But the idea that you win because your supporters come out and click on the computer more than others tells you nothing. I guarantee you that if you had a poll on who had the better hair, Trump would get the same 80 percent.
