Over and over, we’ve said this election’s polls are skewed and untrustworthy. And I’ve always maintained that polling is a tactic meant to manipulate public perception, rather than reflect it.
Pollsters use clever tactics to generate the results they want, like ignoring certain groups and oversampling those they know will favor their candidate. This video is further proof to our theory and confirms our assertions.
All this said, Trump’s gaining lead over Clinton in the recent polls, which are oversampled with democrats, is even more interesting. State and national polls reflect Trump’s surge past Hillary, and not even the biased media can negate liberals’ and conservatives’ mistrust of her.
Because of this, Trump’s campaign has experienced overwhelming momentum and enthusiasm lately, which is even reflected in polls in states that are assumed to be blue, like Virginia, where Trump takes a notable lead.
From Hot Air:
With only six days left before the November Presidential Election, Trump has jumped ahead of Clinton, erasing a 12-point deficit reported by the CPP in early October. This surge for Trump demonstrates again how erratic the run for the White House has been as we head into the final days of Decision 2016. This is the first time Clinton has trailed in the CPP polls this year; the latest poll was conducted Oct. 26-30.
When Virginians were asked if the election were held today, 44 percent of those surveyed would vote for Trump and 41 percent would choose Clinton, while a high percentage of voters remain undecided (15 percent).
Trumps boosted poll numbers could be a reflection of voters, or media outlets protecting themselves from embarrassment come Election Night.
Either way, the mounting evidence of Clinton’s dishonest behavior is finally catching up with her. Despite her rhetoric, lies and mud-slinging, Clinton could not escape public backlash from her behavior forever.
