A slew of recent polls has Democrats so overconfident that some are using the word “landslide.” Of course, everyday Americans heard this same hollow brag by liberal pollsters in the run-up to the last general election in 2016.
Hillary Clinton and her operatives in the fake news went as far as to troll out Electoral College maps and claim Donald Trump had zero chance of winning. With liberal extremists rioting in the streets and the country struggling to regain its economic footing, Joe Biden continues to hide in a basement and cheer on anarchists. This is, apparently, a way to get your polling data moving in the right direction.
“In new Fox News poll, @realDonaldTrump is down 12. He trails among suburban voters by 22 points. He won them by 5 in ’16,” former Obama political strategist David Axelrod tweeted. “He trails among Indys by 22. He won them by 4 in ‘16. Yes, he leads among white, non-college women by 11. But he won them by 27 in ‘16.”
But if the Biden Campaign genuinely believed he could unseat the incumbent Republican, why did they reject holding more than the traditional three presidential debates. Biden, the presumptive nominee, recently agreed to participate in debates held by the Commission on Presidential Debates once the Democratic National Committee confirms him. However, his campaign rejected any possibility of expanding.
“It’s pretty obvious that Joe Biden’s handlers are afraid to send their candidate out without a script and teleprompter handy,” Trump Campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh reportedly said. “Based on his performance in a Philadelphia speech last week, it’s not a question of trusting Biden to answer the phone at 3:00 AM in an emergency, it’s a question of whether he can answer it at 3:00 in the afternoon. It’s been 81 days since Biden held a press conference…”
If one were to concede the polling data reflected voters displeasure with the lockdowns and riots, that might appear reasonable. But the notion that bumbling Biden hiding from any leadership responsibilities causes the American people to select him over the person combatting this crisis seems preposterous. Are the pollsters simply asking the wrong questions or purposely asking misleading ones?
For example, Rasmussen Reports indicates that 55 percent of Americans believe that Biden’s ongoing mental confusion appears to be caused by early-onset dementia. The former Obama number two has had brain surgery and physicians reportedly said it could lead to diminished capacity in his 70s. He’s now 77 years old and appears to suffer significant memory loss and cognitive dysfunction. According to the Zogby Analytics research, 60 percent of younger voters, 56 percent of Independents, and nearly one-third of Democrats believe Biden cannot lead. Those are fascinating numbers when you consider establishment media polls have Biden running away with the election.
It’s also important to keep in mind that during the run-up to the 2016 election, Hillary Clinton led in every major poll with the exception of the LA Times in June. Besides sidestepping competency questions in major polls, the overall numbers fail to highlight that battleground states are either close or President Trump leads. The president leads in Texas, North Carolina, Ohio, Iowa, and others.
But the lessons of 2016 taught us that polls don’t vote, and pollsters are frauds. After all, we have their data to back that up.
