This isn't good yikes Trump's poll numbers drop


Recommended Posts

Polls are a joke. You can make a poll say exactly what you want by carefully wording the questionnaire and selectively polling, even among non-affiliated voters by restricting the area you are polling in. That's why Billary was leading in such a huge way up till the last election.

Are you guys for real? Do you really believe any of these "polls" are accurate or reality based? They are tools to rile us up and to justify their resistance and claims that Trump stole the election or is refusing to concede, after the polls close and it looks like Trump won. They'll use these bullsh_t polls to give them time to "find" more ballots and overturn Trump's win. Then use them to prove that Trump was planning a coup and knew he was going to loose. Just ignore them, they aren't polls at all, they are propaganda tools.

I was writing my response as yours came in. Great minds or fools, right? Folks need to understand that these aren't polls as we used to use the word. They are simply propaganda now.

Polls are statistical tools. Statistics, ... the science of manipulating numbers and data to prove the point you already believed was true. 

 

Exactly. case in point: If I poll 100 people with the question "Do you think mandatory sentences for convicted pedophiles is a good thing?" chances are 100% of those polled will say yes. The news can report that as "The majority of Americans believe people with alternative sexual lifestyles should be imprisoned". And they get away with it because people are too lazy to actually go look at the poll and corresponding data itself.

Polls typically solicit and pander to one base or the other. The only people who believe them are liberal morons like Bill Clinton celebrating before election results were known. If they were correct in 2016 we wouldn’t have had the pleasure of watching Hillary’s Jaw drop to the ground.

I never take polls seriously, especially now.  You can sample and word them to say exactly what you want them to say. Trump blew lieden away last night.
