Yesterday, Rush Limbaugh used what I think was his entire program to make a last ditch case for Donald Trump.
He stated that in the past, as the election nears, even leftist pollsters would begin cleaning up their act, to more accurately reflect the reality of elections. I agree with this. I too have said this.
Early on in the general election cycle, liberal polls consistently over sample to make it appear that the democrat is leading, in an attempt to influence voters. As the election closes in, the polls tighten to reflect reality. This is done so that polling companies can maintain a record of accuracy that they can point to later to solicit business.
However, Rush says it isn’t happening this time around – that polls are still insisting that Hillary is maintaining a lead and will likely win.
Rush says: “My point is I think the polls are still being used as weapons and that’s a departure from my previously stated theories and beliefs. And I finally asked myself, I mean, if we don’t trust the news every day from these people, why would we trust their polls?”
He added that, “the purpose of all of this today in the Drive-By Media is to try to convince you it’s over. The objective is to dampen down Trump support and turnout at the polls. So much of this election has not gone the way the Hillary camp projected or wants it to go.”
I don’t doubt for a minute that the press is doing everything they can to drive down enthusiasm for the Trumpster. They too know what a hopelessly pathetic candidate Hillary is and she needs all the help she can get.
I don’t know if Rush is right as far as polling goes…
