Trump and the Politics of Polling

There’s something missing in the polling. There’s an avalanche of negative media coverage but still thousands rally for Trump.—Gov. Mike Pence “Pence: ‘There’s Something Missing in the Polling These Days’”

“There’s something awfully screwy going on around here.”  Elmer Fudd

If you are still relying on the MSM for your “news” then you my friend have a very skewed idea of reality.

For example: after days, weeks, months of Trump’s record-breaking rallies in locations all across the nation, we are supposed to believe that Clinton leads Trump in the polls. Excuse me? What planet are these polls being taken on?

At the same time the turnout for Clinton’s events has been, in a word, pathetic. Her campaign has been reduced to doing everything but forcing people at gunpoint in order to gather a few hundred at her rallies. In any event, Clinton is much more comfortable mingling with “her own kind” at swanky fundraisers attended by the rich and powerful. “Show me the money!”

In addition to the comfortable lead Trump no doubt has over Clinton in popular support, there is the fact that Trump drilled her a new one in the “2nd Presidential Debate.” It was a slam dunk. And yet “Fox News” came out with a poll recently, purporting to show Clinton leading Trump by 7 points! WTF—how is that even possible?

I point toward an old adage:

“There are…lies, damn lies, and statistics.”—Mark Twain/Benjamin Disraeli

Poll mainly Democratic respondents and go light on the Republicans. That and the fact that many of the folks who will ultimately vote for Trump, are too cowed by their peers and a rabid media to admit it skews the results. I don’t blame them—to keep peace in their family and/or work environment they should say what they need to say—then vote for Trump!

I would never accuse “Fox News” or anyone else of intentionally skewing poll numbers unless I had unassailable proof (which I do not have). But it is certainly not an unheard of practice. For instance, Democratic strategist Pat Caddell famously outed the “news” service “Reuters” for cooking their numbers to favor Clinton, and the list goes on.

Do not make the mistake of thinking that “Fox News” is a conservative network—it is not. Granted, it has a few conservative outliers, but by and large it is a pretty liberal venue. I am not singling out “Fox News” because it’s behavior is especially egregious—it is not. Compared to the other networks it is a model of truth and impartiality. Still, it is as I say, pretty liberal—don’t be fooled into thinking otherwise. (Nonetheless, to give credit where it is due, without commentators such as Sean Hannity and Lou Dobbs, main stream media would have no conservative voices whatsoever).

“Fox News” is undeniably part of the “corporate media” structure, and as such they have a vested interest in keeping the status quo (i.e. political establishment) in place. I’m only saying that, as with all media outlets, take what you read, hear, and see with a grain of salt—a very large grain of salt depending on the outlet.

Where do I get my news? The “Drudge Report,” “Breitbart,” “Gateway Pundit,” and “Canada Free Press” mostly—with a smattering of other sources. Also my “email buddies” keep me abreast of things.

Continued below...

The reasons for skewed poll numbers are twofold: (1) to discourage Trump supporters, and (2) to serve as cover for the massive voter fraud that is planned for November 8th. Everybody and their cousin knows it is coming our way—the only question is to what degree; how bad will it be? Pretty bad I suspect—the globalists are pulling out all the stops on this one.

In addition to bogus poll numbers the media has, of course, embarked on a non-stop smear campaign against Trump. After leading off their attacks against him with a legitimate, if slyly edited, tape, they have followed it up with a flurry of accusations that are anything but legitimate. Get used to it, the onslaught will continue unabated until the election. Sadly, slander does not need to be true in order to be effective, in the short run.

Will there be more “sickening” tapes? I would say count on it—but permit me to delve into that matter a bit. For the benefit of the shocked progressive media mavens who have obviously led cloistered lives, let me spell things out for you—many guys talk trash. At least guys who live outside of the oh so pure-and-proper confines of the media bubble.

When I say “trash” I mean braggadocio, locker-room talk, macho bulls‚Äît. I learned to let it go in one ear and out the other way back in high school (“Yeah, yeah, whatever”). Not all guys talk trash, that is true, but from my experience many do. Geeze Louise, it is no big deal people! To watch them fuss and swoon you would think that these media pundits just graduated from “Nurse Rached’s School of Impeccable Prudery.” Give me a break.

So polls aside, do I believe that Trump will win, and possibly win in a landslide? That would be nice wouldn’t it? But the votes of the brainwashed, the clueless, and the apathetic, coupled with a dishonest and corrupt media, plus widespread voter fraud, leave me to feel that it will be a nail-biter right down to the wire. I’ll do the footwork and leave the results up to God.

If our will and God’s will are aligned on November 8th then the principalities of darkness will start to fade, and a new dawn of light and freedom will be upon us. Amen and hallelujah! I’ll leave you with Mr. Trump’s closing statements from a recent speech he gave in Florida.

We will vote for the country we want. We will vote for the future we want. We will vote for the politics we want and we will vote to put this corrupt government cartel out of business and out of business immediately.

...They’ve betrayed our workers, they’ve betrayed our borders and, most of all, they’ve betrayed our freedoms. We will save our sovereign rights as a nation. We will end the politics of profit. We will end the rule of special interests. We will end the raiding of our jobs by other countries. We will end the total disenfranchisement of the American voter and the American worker.

Our Independence Day is at hand, and it arrives finally on November 8.—Donald J. Trump West Palm Beach, FL 10/13/16
