Polling firm only one of two to accurately call 2016 election.

One of only two polling firms that correctly predicted Donald Trump’s 2016 victory says that Trump is on course for re-election due to “hidden voters” who are not reflected in mainstream polling because they are reluctant to admit their support for Trump.

Trafalgar Group chief pollster Robert Cahaly told Fox News’ Sean Hannity that “polls are predominantly missing the hidden Trump vote, what is referred to as the shy Trump voter.”

Cahaly noted that the threat of retribution, which has intensified following months of BLM and Antifa riots, is driving many Trump voters to keep quiet about their support for the president when asked by polling agencies.

“There is a clear feeling among conservatives and people that are for the president, that they are not interested in sharing their opinions so readily on the telephone — we’ve seen people being beat up, harassed, doxed, have their houses torn up, because they express political opinions that are not in line with … the politically correct establishment,” said Cahaly.

Cahaly also noted that with the elevated threat of doxxing, Trump voters would be uncomfortable in stating their preference if they thought the poll wasn’t anonymous and wouldn’t therefore give honest answers.

However, according to rival polling firm FiveThirtyEight, most “shy Trump voters” would be expected to be found in blue states, yet 2016 results show that Trump outperformed 2016 polls the most in red states.

Despite this, a poll conducted by Fox News earlier this month found that most Americans think their neighbors are quietly voting for Trump.

They burn, loot, riot and shoot.
We take our revenge at the ballot box.

Hope he's correct, once again. This upcoming election is the Super Bowl for me. If Trump wins, I'm screaming in happiness and jumping around in my living room, like I did when when the Broncos won SB50.

I have to believe this is true. I live in a largely conservative area but almost nobody will put a trump sign, sticker, or wear a hat/tshirt because they will get drawn into a conflict or have their stuff vandalized.
Among friends most people keep their mouths shut. The left has dropped any veil of civility they had.

Ok. I admit it. I don't want to waste my time arguing with people. So, I am one of those who says Mr. Biden will win - and already voted for Mr. Trump.

I would never put up a yard sign or put on a bumper sticker.

Just before the 2016 election, I heard the same b.s. that Mr. Trump was antisemitic, a racist, a miser, anti woman, anti gay, following an intolerant religion, and plain mean. Then, and since then, I have no such indication is any conduct or words from Mr. Trump. So, I remain quiet.

I've been nailed in half a dozen "surveys" (I won't refer to them as official polls) and in every one I've said that I'm voting Biden.

Every Trump voter that I know has lied when surveyed or polled.

Every Trump voter that I have seen communication from online has said that they have lied about who they are voting for.

Maybe the pollsters learned a lesson from 2016 and now have much more accurate demographic sampling, but, if those they are polling are lying the polls can't be accurate.

Hidden voters?
I just hope there are enough hidden Trump voters to offset the lost mail in votes that are almost certainly going to miraculously be discovered as Trumps numbers start to accumulate.

Vote people! Stop speculating and vote vote vote!

I see some Trump signs around the hood, but I don't have one. I've been saying what this guy said for months though. Conservatives don't trust the media and the govt, so they don't answer polls, don't sign up for crap online that gets them called for polls, and generally value their privacy.

I took that day and the next off of work, but even if Trump wins by a landslide on election day, the left is going to drag it out for days, weeks, even months with all of their cheating mail in ballots. I won't do a happy dance until he's sworn in again.

I hope President Trump is reelected, but the increased voter fraud and the electoral votes runarounds that some liberal states have passed have me concerned.

I don't have any confidence in polls, regardless.

We certainly can't afford any complacency for any reason; the President needs every vote.


Vote Trump/Republican 2020! :waving:

Hope he is right. But aren’t most polls anonymous? Why would your answer matter to or be known by anyone? I admit I have never been polled, probably because I don’t answer calls from anyone not on my contact list.

If either candidate wins by a landslide it won’t be dragged out. I doubt, however, it will be a landslide. Only a few states will matter and it could be close in those states.
