Trump fires his pollsters after campaign leaks show him losing in 11 battleground states

Source: raw story




on June 16, 2019

.............................

NBC reported on Sunday that the firings came after someone leaked polls that indicated Trump is losing to Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden in 11 battleground states

“A separate person close to the Trump re-election team told NBC News Saturday that the campaign will be cutting ties with some of its pollsters in response to the information leaks, although the person did not elaborate as to which pollsters would be let go,” the report said.................................

....................In Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Florida and Michigan — three states where Trump edged Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton by narrow margins that proved decisive in his victory — Trump trails Biden by double-digits. In three of those states — Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Florida — Biden’s leads sit outside the poll’s margin of error.

Trump is also behind the former vice president in Iowa by 7 points, in North Carolina by 8 points, in Virginia by 17 points, in Ohio by 1 point, in Georgia by 6 points, in Minnesota by 14 points, and in Maine by 15 points.

In Texas, where a Democratic presidential nominee hasn’t won since President Jimmy Carter in 1976, Trump leads by just 2 points..................................


The president denied the existence of any negative polling during comments last week in the Oval Office, saying his campaign has “great internal polling” and saying the numbers reported were from “fake polls.”

“We are winning in every single state that we've polled. We're winning in Texas very big. We're winning in Ohio very big. We're winning in Florida very big,” he said.

15. Though shooting the messenger on 5th Ave. wouldn't turn his base against him.

He doesn't like the news, so he decries them as fake.
He doesn't like the truth, so he doesn't listen to it.
He doesn't like what's in his taxes, so he won't release them.
He doesn't like his health, so he gets a doctor to tell him he's the healthiest overweight 70+-year-old ever.
I like presidents who don't need to encapsulate themselves in an insular bubble.

4. He'll find some phony pollster who'll give him the numbers he wants.

Of course, not having accurate internal polling is a disaster for any campaign, but that's fine with me. Let him plan his campaign around phony numbers.

10. Even Rasmussen won't give Dolt 45 the numbers he wants.

Trump wants polls showing him winning decisively in all states and not even Rasmussen could manage that. Some previously-unknown and completely disreputable outfit will present him with totally fake numbers, which he will love and flaunt everywhere, and then not pay the fake pollster.

28. Agreed. I really hope his whole campaign is run on fake numbers.

Let him think he's winning in landslides everywhere. Better for us.

Anyone joining tRump's team should know better than this. Put some of his Russian compatriots in charge of the polling.

23. Firing the messenger, ROFL

The pollsters should just tell him alternative facts, that he is ahead. While he thinks he is ahead, he changes nothing and that results in him losing.

He is the biggest baby ever.

I've heard bad things from those numbers. Not making America great as I am.

That's my short take on an Onion story.

If they didn't demand to be paid up front , or will they be another company he stiffs them and doesn't 't pay them, like many , many others before them.

33. I'm not yet joining the happy dance

1. Pollsters project only from whom they have contacted. There are a number of Repugs who refuse to answer phones unless a family member starts leaving a message. But every November, especially in Presidential years, they show up at the polls (or vote absentee). In Virginia, unless there is a corresponding surge from uncontacted Democrats/disaffected Repugs (as happened in the governor's race in 2017), this boosts the Repug share of the turnout by about 5 percentage points. Add that to the "margin of error".

2. ANYTHING can happen in the next 16 months (apart from the Senate turning Democratic). The following month, who knows?
((On 12 Jun, Gary Woodland was 80/1, 27th favorite, to win the US Open...))

The boy seems a bit confused.
