What measurable metrics are used to determine likely voters?
The “screen” is simply a question fairly early in the sequence asking whether the respondent believes they will vote: if the answer is “no”, then the questionnaire may be terminated at (or shortened from) that point. (N.B. also removes those who will be too young to vote at the time, without asking for exact age.)
Win2003 server software pre-dates the birth of Trump’s son by a good three years
Admittedly, that serial user of women is always going to have children younger than [some recent software platform]...
A more accurate characterisation of that article is that right-wing campaigns are overwhelmingly likely to use the tactics of junk email scams: they're morally bankrupt, and they're aware of that, and they're counting on voters to be stupid.

(Ah, yep, that's what you linked to.)
Nah, it’s all of a piece with his campaign.
Live by the bullshit, die by the bullshit.
(Generously assuming that this too is bullshit,
and not an honest expression of his belief.)
The past few months seem to have demonstrated that bullshit, utterly unconstrained by reality, can't be beaten by “fair and square”: the best you can hope for is that it defeats itself. That’s bloody depressing.
Probably a subset of the old favourite “all people who even think about wanting to have sex must die” (see: any teen horror movie).

It's hard to look at the US election and not think they're taking that advice seriously.
