During the primaries of 2015 and the election of 2016, the polls rarely showed Trump as a front-runner. One thing was absolutely certain: The polls were not telling you what people were thinking. Most of the polls were telling you what they wanted you to think.
The most severe dishonesty tends to come early in the primaries. If they keep predicting that some political outsider, whom they can’t stand, like Pat Buchanan or Ron Paul, is only polling at five to ten percent instead of 50 percent, they are hoping to demoralize that individual and his supporters, discourage people from donating to him and maybe get him to drop out of the race especially if the first couple primaries can be rigged against him. That’s the reality of politics in America and how the two-party system shoots down people, who are genuine patriots, who want to drain the swamp.
The latest example of this is an obviously fake poll by Fox news, which claimed the top four Democrats can all beat Trump in the general election. Apparently the new Moslem-friendly and politically correct management at Fox has put a Communist in charge of their polling department. Trump would mop the floor with his opponent if he were fortunate enough to run against Pocahontas or Bernie. Biden is proving an equally bad candidate as his senile moments and gaffes are becoming a daily occurrence. Might as well get great-grandpa out of the old folks home and try to run him against Trump. The fourth candidate Kamala Harris is a mix of corruption, radical politics and reparations, who would send moderate voters fleeing to Trump.
A recent news article reports “A new Zogby Poll® of 897 likely voters nationwide in the U.S., conducted from 8/9/19-8/12/19, with a margin of sampling error of +/-3.3 percentage points, shows President Trump’s job approval rating at its best since we’ve been tracking the figure…”
“Overall, a slim majority (51%–27% strongly and 24% somewhat approve) of likely voters approve of Trump’s job as president…”
Political advisor James Carville once told Bill Clinton “It’s the economy, stupid.” That maxim still applies today and we’ve got six million more people working now than when Obama was president. The stock market is about 50 percent higher than it was election day 2016.
If 51 percent of Americans approve of the job Trump is doing (and it should really be over 90 percent if leftists could bring themselves to be honest about things), the 2020 election is going to be an epic disaster for the Democrats. Their coalition of Latinos, Blacks and self-hating White liberals just does not have the numbers yet to make up a majority
