Let’s start here with just one of the documents Wikileaks exposed from the Hillary Clinton campaign.
“LEAKED CLINTON INTERNAL DOCUMENT: Discourage Trump Supporters with Bogus Polls and Declaring Election Over”
From Gateway Pundit
Does that sound familiar? We know that polls are historically unreliable. This election they are all over the place. Jeff Bezos’ WASHINGTON POS has a poll showing Clinton has a 12-point advantage over Trump.
From Zero Hedge:
“This Is How WaPo’s Latest Poll Gave Hillary A 12 Point Advantage Over Trump”
Of course, like many of the recent polls from the likes of Reuters, ABC and The Washington Post, something curious emerges when you look just beneath the surface of the headline 12-point lead.
METHODOLOGY – This ABC News poll was conducted by landline and cellular telephone Oct. 20-22, 2016, in English and Spanish, among a random national sample of 874 likely voters. Results have a margin of sampling error of 3.5 points, including the design effect. Partisan divisions are 36-27-31 percent, Democrats – Republicans – Independents.”
As we’ve pointed out numerous times in the past, in response to Reuters’ efforts to “tweak” their polls, per the The Pew Research Center, at least since 1992, democrats have never enjoyed a 9-point registration gap despite the folks at ABC and The Washington Post somehow convincing themselves it was a reasonable margin.”
Another post at Zero Hedge warns voters to “Ignore The Capricious Polls”.
“Sea of faulty polls”
We know that many media outlets are supporting Clinton in any way they can. Here is evidence that they are toeing the line by providing the false poll numbers that the candidate says she wants. What can be done about it? Probably nothing.
