Which Presidential Poll Do You Believe?

 In opinion, Politics

Do you believe the Presidential polls that have Hillary crushing Trump, or do you believe the ones that show Trump crushing Hillary? It seems that there are  myriad of polls from every side, and most are being skewed by the media one way or the other.

Generally, the mainstream media tends to sample large numbers of Democrats in order to get the results they want. Or, they skew the results by changing the question or polling only small samples of certain demographics.

The polls are rigged!

A recent Reuters poll was “re-worked” to hide a  17 point margin for Trump to bring it into line with other MSM polls showing Clinton leading. The changes in methodology – and the way a question is posed-  masked the real results. Since there are no laws governing polling, they can get away with it.

“This comes as close as I have ever seen to cooking the results. I suppose you can get away with it in polling because there are no laws. But, if this was accounting, they would put them in jail.” Pat Caddell, Democratic pollster and political consultant

Breitbart reported,

The Reuters/Ipsos polling team announced Friday that they are dropping the “Neither” option from their presidential preference polls after their tracking polls showed a 17-point swing in favor of the Republican nominee Donald J. Trump, exposing the “Secret Trump Voters” Democrats fear.

So there you have it – the polls are rigged too. Looks like people will actually have to make up their minds on their own instead of looking at polls to do it for them.

There will be those who don’t want to tell people they’re voting for Trump in the poll, and then do it anyway on voting day.

Fraud and the Electoral College

The possible problems that will make or break the election for Trump will be 1) fraud at the voting place by Clinton cronies, and 2) the Electoral College.

Remember: the President is not elected by popular vote, but by the Electoral College. Four times in the past, the President was elected by the electoral college without winning the popular vote: George W. Bush in 2000, John Quincy Adams in 1824, Rutherford B. Hayes in 1876 (an election also fraught with claims of fraud),  and Benjamin Harrison in 1888.
