News from the mainstream media about the presidential election is pretty clear: If you’re a Republican, you might as well stay home, because Hillary Clinton’s already got the White House won.
Not so fast, say the facts.
Certainly, Clinton’s ahead is certain polls and Donald Trump’s struggling and lagging in certain others – but the oft-overlooked is: Many of those polls outright ignore crucial information that actually puts Republicans, if not ahead, then at least back in, the race.
As Proud Conservative reports, citing American Lookout: “Pollsters are wrong the percentage of white voters relative to other voting groups. … Pollsters are ignoring the increased Republican turnout this year. … Pollsters are underestimating the numbers of Democrats voting for Trump.”
Interesting stuff – and no wonder the mainstream media’s failing to look too closely at all the polls, preferring to stick with the usual, select few.
Going deeper would give a different look.
As Proud Conservative reported: Statespoll.com put Trump up by several percentage points against Clinton in North Carolina, up by more percentage points against Clinton in Florida, up by several more percentage points against Clinton in Colorado and – see the trend developing? – up, once again, by even more percentage points against Clinton in Pennsylvania. In both New Hampshire and Nevada, Trump takes the lead, as well, according to this Statespoll.com.
But there’s one caveat: Republicans have to actually vote.
“All this,” said Proud Conservative, “goes out the window if you do not get your behinds to the polls today. One of the key data elements that pollsters are underestimating is Republican turnout. You have to get to the polls today.”
