Presidential polls look as fake as the Russian collusion narrative

The media are clearly using skewed polls, as they did in 2016, to suppress votes and discourage Trump supporters by making them think they are oddballs and racists.

The ABC/Washington Post poll is a good example.

President Trump faces a significant challenge in his bid to win reelection in November, with former vice president Joe Biden holding a double-digit lead nationally and the president’s approval ratings crumbling amid a spreading coronavirus pandemic and a weakened economy, according to a Washington Post-ABC News poll.

Instead of polling proper samples in their latest poll, they polled with 24% of their respondents as people who identified themselves as Republican.  A proper sample would be at least 33%, because that is what people have said in 2016 and 2018.  In this poll, Joe Biden had a 15-point lead.

If they had used 33%, Trump conservatively would have picked up six or seven percent, and Biden would have gone down a comparable number.  A 12% to 14% adjustment would mean that the race is a dead heat, and that wouldn’t be a good headline to push the leftist agenda.  The poll has a 3.5% margin of error.
