They tried to rig an election, and now they’re trying to rig the Presidency. The MSM is at it again.This is Paul Gordon of NewsFire.TV. That’s what we’ll be discussing in this NewsFire Flame.
In the month leaded up to the election on November 8th, we repeatedly demonstrated how the mainstream media polls from the likes of ABC/Washington Post, CNN and Reuters repeatedly manipulated their poll samples to engineer their desired results, namely a large Hillary Clinton lead (see “New Podesta Email Exposes Playbook For Rigging Polls Through ‘Oversamples’” and “ABC/Wapo Effectively Admit To Poll Tampering As Hillary’s “Lead” Shrinks To 2-Points”). In fact, just 16 days prior to the election an ABC/Wapo poll showed a 12-point lead for Hillary, a result that obviously turned out to be embarrassingly wrong for the pollsters.
But, proving they still got it, ABC/Washington Post and CNN are out with a pair of polls on Trump’s favorability this morning that sport some of the most egregious “oversamples” we’ve seen. The ABC/Wapo poll showed an 8-point sampling margin for Democrats with only 23% of the results taken from Republicans…
“A total of 1,000 adults were interviewed by telephone nationwide by live interviewers calling both landline and cell phones. Among the entire sample, 32% described themselves as Democrats, 24% described themselves as Republicans, and 44% described themselves as independents or members of another party.
57% of Americans see Donald Trump’s treatment of the news media as unfair in new @ABC News/WaPo poll. 38% say Trump is being treated unfairly.
47% think the media is treating Trump fairly, while 48% say the media is treating Trump unfairly.
Opinion: We can only put this whole story in the category of fake news. Skew the polls in a way that lets you tell the American people what they’re thinking and hope that they make your fiction real. As the saying goes, perception….is reality. We’re not sure, however, that the usual fake news trickery will be enough to convince Americans on the receiving end of the progressive scourge these last 8 years that their fantasy perception has any basis in reality whatsoever.
