On Donald Trump and the Polls: Let’s Look Behind The “Tent Flaps” To Find The Truth…

I don’t know which I detest more – the groups that commission polls from organizations they know will cooperate in getting the kinds of results they’re after; the organizations that are reckless and/or deliberately complicit in manipulating the polls by filtering who they ask what, where and when; or the media outlets that carry the water to the masses under the pretense they’re “reporting” fair numbers all the while knowing they’re not. Sickening – and the reason it is absolutely vital that we look behind the “tent flaps” of polls if we’re trying to find the truth.

Note below the WSJ/NBC, Bloomberg & Quinnipiac polls:

“The WSJ/NBC poll which showed Carson in a virtual dead heat with Trump but also noted that the small sample size of that survey (only 230 likely GOP voters) called into question just how much those results could be trusted.”

“While this poll [USA Today/Suffolk University released 9/30/15] also had a relatively small sample of only 380 likely Republican voters, with a margin of error of 5 percent, it seems more in line with the other recent Bloomberg and Quinnipiac national polls, which showed Trump with leads of 5 and 8 points, respectively.”

NOW look at the 5-Day rolling polls of Reuters – with 2 days still to go in this week’s rolling with NO filters except people asked must be 18 and over – and so far 765 people answered the question, “If the Republican presidential primary came down to these candidates, for whom would you vote?” 33.1% Trump; 23.8% Wouldn’t Vote; 23.3% Ben Carson; and 19.7% Jeb Bush.

Donald Trump Is *NOT* “Falling In The National Polls: Dem-Leaning ‘Public Policy Polling’ Shows He’s GAINED 5 Points Since Last PPP Poll August 6th

SHARE THIS POST with anyone who says Trump is falling in the national / general polls. It’s a load of crap, based on skewed data. PPP (Public Policy Polling) is a robust, Democratic-leaning National / General poll and Trump is still in the lead – In fact, he is polling five points HIGHER than in August when PPP polled after the first debate! Media continues to misrepresent Trump and his status in the polls. WHY?

*****The Democratic-leaning firm Public Policy Polling (PPP) released a new survey from Iowa this week in which Trump polled at 24 percent — a 5-point rise over his showing in PPP’s previous poll of the Hawkeye State in the immediate aftermath of the first GOP debate on Aug. 6.

The New York Times Promotes Data Suggesting Trump / Sanders Are #3 Presidential Picks – Check The Methodology, Seem Sketchy To You?

By Don Light  @Pros4Trump

“I don’t think we’re in Kansas anymore, Toto”. Welcome to George Orwell’s ‘1984’, Dorothy. Check this out: The New York Times is promoting the idea that anti-Establishment candidates Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders are the #3 Presidential picks in their respective parties for the 2016 Presidential race; trouble is, this assertion is based on EXTREMELY sketchy data. See for yourself via link, below. For example, one of the categories they are using to pick the “winner” of the Presidential race is “money raised”. Now we all know that Trump is funding his own campaign, so of course, he comes in dead last in this particular category behind all the other GOP candidates, at #12, which causes him to plummet below other, lesser candidates. Who cares that he is #1 in the Iowa and N.H. polls?

Seems to me like this is just another example of the MSM doing all they can to promote candidates on both sides of the aisle who will ensure “business as usual” continues in DC if elected to the Presidency in 2016 (Hillary Clinton / Jeb Bush). Notice that this same shady methodology places Bernie Sanders under BIDEN (who they describe as “unannounced”). To present the information in this way appears to be yet another attempt on mainstream media’s part to mislead the public with faulty methodology by illustrating Trump and Sanders supposed #3 positions as Presidential candidates. Or perhaps even deliberate manipulation of data in an attempt to promote the idea that Trump / Sanders cannot possibly win their respective party nominations or the general election in 2016. Or both. Or, perhaps something even worse: The deliberate dissemination of Propaganda coordinated carefully by Establishment media designed to control the masses and ensure that anti-Establishment candidates like Trump and Sanders do not become the next POTUS in 2016. Ya think?

****Who’s Winning the Presidential Campaign? History suggests that each party’s eventual nominee will emerge from 2015 in one of the top two or three positions, as measured by endorsements, fund-raising and polling….[see below link for the full story.]
