Here’s Why The New Polls Showing Donald Trump Trailing Hillary Are Flawed

A new Reuters poll has many Republicans worried about the outcome of the 2016 presidential race–and many on the Democratic side ready to pop the champaign corks.

The poll shows presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton leading by a shocking 14 percent over her Republican rival Donald Trump: 47 percent to 33 percent.

Unfortunately there’s one problem with the poll. It is heavily skewed.

  • That is so typical of the MSM, too stupid to lie well.

    The only poll that counts is on voting day.

  • The MSM cannot even report the weather without spewing some global warming dogma.

    My their advertising revenue drop further.

  • When you attack and marginalize an opponent, you don’t change their mind – you just make them less likely to voice their opinion. That and skewed sampling demographics can make polls indicate anything the pollsters want.

    That’s what happened with Brexit, and that’s what’s happening with Trump.

    Desperately hoping for the herd effect.

    I’m shocked, shocked that the polls are more influenced by the wishful thinking of the pollsters than the facts on the ground.

    So the participants for these polls were selected on the assumption that the Democrat turnout will be 150% of the Republican turnout. What a farce ! Worse for Hillary, she only beat Trump by 142% in the poll results. She’s in trouble.

    Of course polls never lie, eh?

      I was optimistic about the last Canadian federal election but I was wrong.
      I braced for the worst as I walked back from the polling station with my wife.
      This time, though, Trump is going to win.
      He’s the counterweight to the crap in this world and he’s riding the pendulum back past the middle.
