    It's clear to me that the BS polls are just more disinformation from the usual suspects...

    "It's clear that NBC, ABC and CNN who have Democrat operatives like Chuck Todd, George Stephanopoulos and other Democrats in their news operations are consistently under-polling Republicans and therefore, reporting biased polls,"

    Shocking! Shocking, I tell you!

    But yes, it's why I've never had faith in polls. I had an entire class in college on how not to skew your datasets and statistics and reporting to show true data. It's like the media took the class too and followed every rule on how to lie with statistics.

    When CNN does a poll, it doesn't bother to leave the office, so it's a little biased...

    I was stopped on the street in 2016 by a pollster. He started by asking if I was a Democrat or Republican. When I said I was a Republican, he thanked me and moved on. I heard the next person answer Democrat, and he proceeded to ask her his poll questions.

    Now it could have been a poll "just for Democrats" but it made me laugh.

    Polls are meaningless. They are nothing more than a propaganda tool designed to shape public opinion. Nothing more.

    Good. I want Trump to poll low for two reasons:
    1. It will get more Rs off their butts to vote.
    2. The left will get all Hillary again and the screaming fits will make for great TV.

    I'm reg'd dem and I love the phone calls. I can almost feel the angst/confusion when I tell them all the reasons why I'm voting Rep.

    They had a lot of faith in the polls last time. Then came the tears.

    Rasmussen is the most accurate where Trump is concerned.

    I'm not certain they suck. I think they know exactly what they are doing. Can't trust any of them.

    I have done survey type polls. I can change how most answer by how I word, ask the question. I bet if in person I could get 75% of posters her to make anti Trump Responses. It’s how it’s worded.
    Heck I could make you anti gun.
    Respondents agreed With At least 9 out of 10 Statements That “limiting firearms availability is a good thing.“
    To start. Should Prisoners have guns? Should dangerous mental patients? Children under 5 yrs old? .........

    The media polling worked out so well for them in the last election. Guess they want the same results this next election.

    Admittedly, any form of the word "Poll" triggers me. The spilt second I hear it or read it, I immediately know I'm dealing with a complete sh*thead, and run the other way.

    I’m shocked, shocked I tell you! It’s unpossible that these fine upstanding pollsters would be less than honest.

    The Demshevik political pollsters 2020 election brainstorming meeting:

    " Hey guys, remember in 2016 when we tried to influence the election results by oversampling Democrat voters with the purpose of discouraging Trump's deplorables from voting on election day?

    "Yes, we remember"

    "And remember when all of us political and opinion pollsters we said Hillary will defeat Trump 96% to 4%?

    "Yep"

    "And do you recall we stood by the validity of our fake polling results all the way until well into the night of the election day?"

    "Yes, of course."

    "Here is an idea: let's do it again"

    The polling over at realclearpolitics.com is looking a lot like 2016 in addition it has shown the black vote is slipping even more than before. First it was the Hispanic vote.

    The white liberal pandering is biting them in the ass and they have no clue how to "win them back" besides pandering. Trying to focus group the vote. Come up with a solid economic plan that works.
