“Never in my life have I seen a news organization, and a supposedly reputable poll, do something so dishonest.”
Who said that? It sounds like Donald Trump, or maybe someone on his team, but that’s not even close.
Pat Caddell is a life long Democratic strategist, but he’s also an honest one. That makes his comments about anything to do with electoral politics worth listening to.
On Sunday, Caddell made some comments about the new poll that has Hillary taking the lead. It’s information only an insider would have, and it’s great news for Trump:
“[Reuters] not only changed their formula, to put Hillary ahead. They went back and changed the results, for a week of results where Trump was ahead, and then they turned those into Hillary leads,” said Caddell. “They also erased all the former polling off the site. They didn’t tweak their procedure – they cooked it.”
Caddell explained exactly how Reuters “cooked” these results: By counting those who said they were on the fence as Hillary supporters instead of undecideds.
“This is what the media is willing to do, to try to elect her,” Caddell said. “This poll is nothing but a part of a media offensive. In the 45 years since I was a child, in top-level presidential campaigns, I have never seen the media on such a jihad, and so involved in hiding facts, and not following up. This is a crisis of democracy, what the press is now doing.”
Caddell’s not done. He talks about the Khan family, Bernie Sanders and a lot more. A very eye opening interview.
