Over the weekend we wrote about the latest ABC / Washington Post “goal seeking” report that showed a 12-point lead for Hillary. The “poll” took advantage of all the usual gimmicks to engineer the blowout Hillary lead including a 9% “oversample” of democrats versus republicans (which, as we’ve pointed out numerous times, does not reflect the reality of the true voter registration gap). Conveniently, the 12-point lead was released just in time for the Sunday political talk shows which all had a field day boasting about the results.
Ironically, just two days after showing a landslide victory for Hillary, ABC and Wapo now see a much tighter race with her 12-point lead being cut in half to just 6 points. So, you tell us…did voters suddenly have a massive change of heart, in just two days, on no incremental news? Or, did ABC / Wapo have other reasons to “goal seeking” a 12-point lead over the weekend? Certainly, it seems convenient that a controversial poll reflecting a massive lead for Hillary would be “embargoed” for release to just prior to the start of the busy Sunday political talk shows while more “realistic” polls would be released just days later, in the middle of the week, without the same mainstream media fanfare.
