I will say your polls are not misleading but polling is VASTLY unreliable, is entirely dependent on peoples willingness to be forthright, the wording of the questions and many many polls have different results for both candidates. It's actually completely insane to me how much stock people (not necessarily you) put in the results of polls.

But they could write in a candidate, or vote 3rd party. (it's no more of a waste of a vote than voting blue in a blue state or red in a blue state or visa versa).

You could vote third party. I’m voting for Jorgensen.

Sadly there doesn't seem to be a reasonable alternative given that third parties are extremely unlikely to win the election. For people who are unhappy with their party's nominee, the best opportunity to do something about it was probably to vote in the primaries.

In my opinion the issue stems from the majority of voters being scared of "throwing away" their vote, creating a cycle that only reinforces that notion.

Is there a mechanism for US voters to deny both candidates?

In 2016 Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton were both seen as unfavorable by a majority of the country. Source

Currently Donald Trump is facing a 38% approval rating Source, and nearly 61% of voters think that Joe Biden needs to prove he doesn't have dementia (38% are already convinced he is suffering from it) Source

Less than half of voting eligible US citizens voted in the last election. Source

Given the trend of unpopular candidates being promoted by both the Republican and Democratic parties, is there a mechanism that enables US voters to deny both candidates even if a more preferable candidate is not on the ticket? Is there an option for those that feel like the current candidates don't represent them properly?

Why is climate change such a partisan issue?

Sorry if this is the wrong place to ask but I’m having some struggles with understanding the argument on this. I (31/M) tend to be somewhere in the middle of the political spectrum. A quote I read once summed up my feelings pretty well when it said “I believe the gay married couple next door should be able to protect their marijuana plants with AR-15s” if that helps give some understanding to my mindset. What is it that makes the evidence of climate change a polarizing topic? I mean, the evidence is right there. Science is science. Plus, who honestly gives a good argument as to why we shouldn’t do what we can to protect the environment anyway, regardless of climate change? That seems ridiculous to me. Can anyone ELI5?
