36 Years Ago Today Ronald Reagan was Losing to Jimmy Carter in Gallup Poll by 8 – Reagan Went on to Win in a Landslide
Main stream media skews polls to discourage potential voters from voting and has done it for years.
Ann Coulter warned in her book Slander in 2003 that the far left main stream media always uses polls to push their agenda. Polls can be skewed by selecting an unreasonable sample size, by asking lead up questions or by selecting more of a sample population of one side of an issue to achieve a desired result
A good example of the media trying to shape a vote occurred 36 years ago today. In a Gallup poll released on October 26th in 1980, two weeks before the election, Jimmy Carter was leading Ronald Reagan 47 – 39. Two weeks later Reagan won in such a landslide that Carter conceded before California was closed.
So what is going to happen this November?
On April 2nd of this year we predicted that Ted Cruz would be mathematically eliminated from the Republican race for President on April 27th because on that day he would need more delegates than would be available. We also predicted that on April 27th Donald Trump would accumulate 943 delegates which would put him well on track to win the Republican nomination.
April 27th came and Ted Cruz was eliminated and Trump had amassed 944 delegates (which later was updated to 950 delegates). We were spot on!
Our projection for the 2016 Presidential election is that similar to 1980 the polls are wrong and Trump will win by a significant amount and here’s why –
Trump won big in the primaries –
This year Republicans crushed their previous record in the primaries for number of votes by 150%. Their old record was 20 million and this year 31 million voted in the primaries. The Democrats on the other hand had 7 million votes less than their record year in 2008 with 30 million this year compared to 37 million in 2008.
Many of the polls are biased –
These past few weeks a number of polls show Hillary Clinton leading Donald Trump by various margins. One poll reported by NBC/WSJ showed Hillary ahead by 11. However, it was never pointed out by the main stream media that the poll was created by a Hillary Super PAC.
Also, it’s also well known that the Monmouth University poll is run by a Hillary Huckster who recently was caught manipulating a poll and then lied about it.
Realclearpolitics.com takes an average of these distorted polls to come up with their analysis of the current race. Their efforts are a great example of the phrase – ‘garbage in – garbage out’.
Many if not all of the polls include samples that are heavily skewed towards Democrats or women. WikiLeaks released Clinton emails showing there efforts to work with the pollsters to corrupt the polls and discourage Trump supporters.
Rallies Show Massive Excitement for Trump and None for Hillary –
We have kept track of the number of participants at both Trump and Hillary rallies since the conventions in July. Since August 1st Trump has crushed Hillary in these events. Trump rallies have accumulated more than 560,000 since August 1st while Hillary’s only 30,000. These numbers are so huge they cannot be ignored!
Social Media and the Bernie Factor
Social media numbers for Trump heavily outpace Clinton as shown below as of October 15th.
Ask any Democrat who supported Bernie Sanders whether they will vote for Hillary. The answer is ‘no’. A significant number of Bernie fans hate Hillary Clinton for the super delegates she received to steal the election, for the questionable primary wins on her resume and because of the revelations in WikiLeaks where she slams Bernie. The Bernie people know that the media is biased and will not vote for Hillary and this is a significant number of Democrats.
Finally, look around. How many people in your area have Hillary signs in their front yard or on their car? Everywhere you go you see Trump signs. However, you could drive for miles and see no Hillary signs. The excitement for Hillary is just not there.
Overall, we believe Hillary is corrupt and that most Americans agree with this. Americans want a candidate they can respect and trust – Hillary is not that candidate.
