I’ve been saying for quite a while that the polls in this election are not trustworthy. They are conducted and released by the left wing media, who have a vested interest in getting Hillary Clinton elected. So how can they be trusted to release honest information about who people will vote for?
It would be too easy for them to manipulate the polls to give Hillary an advantage, in order to discourage people from supporting Trump. It’s a tactic despots do during wartime, to make it look like they’re winning, even though they’ve lost every battle.
As it turns out, that’s just what they’ve been doing.
From Zero Hedge:
Earlier this morning we wrote about the obvious sampling bias in the latest ABC / Washington Post poll that showed a 12-point national advantage for Hillary. Like many of the recent polls from Reuters, ABC and The Washington Post, this latest poll included a 9-point sampling bias toward registered democrats…
Meanwhile, we also pointed out that with huge variances in preference across demographics one can easily “rig” a poll by over indexing to one group vs. another. As a quick example, the ABC / WaPo poll found that Hillary enjoys a 79-point advantage over Trump with black voters. Therefore, even a small “oversample” of black voters of 5% could swing the overall poll by 3 full points. Moreover, the pollsters don’t provide data on the demographic mix of their polls which makes it impossible to “fact check” the bias…convenient.
That’s enough to cast doubt on every “major” poll that’s been released over the last few weeks and months. You see from that one example how shockingly easy it is for biased pollsters and media to distort the numbers.
But wait, there’s more!
Now, for all of you out there who still aren’t convinced that the polls are “adjusted”, we present to you the following Podesta email, leaked earlier today, that conveniently spells out, in detail, exactly how to “manufacture” the desired data. The email starts out with a request for recommendations on “oversamples for polling” in order to “maximize what we get out of our media polling.”
“I also want to get your Atlas folks to recommend oversamples for our polling before we start in February. By market, regions, etc. I want to get this all compiled into one set of recommendations so we can maximize what we get out of our media polling.”
You see, this has been going on all year long, from the primaries into the general election. The DNC have colluded with the media and polling groups (which are often funded by DNC Super PACs) to release inaccurate and blatantly dishonest polls to give Hillary an advantage.
The end result is to further create a false narrative that she is winning the election, before the ballots are cast. That could go a long way in discouraging people from supporting Trump. You see, the media and the DNC think we’re all stupid lemmings, who will jump off a cliff just because we think everyone else is.
But the American people aren’t stupid. We won’t do something, just because CNN tells us to.
The leaked emails provide a 37-page guide on how to rig polls. It included strategies from state to state, such as in Arizona, where they over sample Hispanics and Native Americans. In Florida, they go out of their way to not poll older voters and to focus on African American and Hispanic voters.
So the next time you see a poll that gives Hillary a lead over Trump, don’t believe it. The only results that matter come out on November 8. That’s the poll we all will participate in.
