Wikileaks Show New Podesta Email Exposes the Democrat Playbook For Rigging Polls Through “Oversamples”
FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO STILL DENY DEMOCRAT MANIPULATION OF POLLING DATA AND OVER-SAMPLING COMES THE FOLLOWING …
From Zero Hedege comes the following report on more information coming from Podesta’s emails. This time it is the Democrat play book on how they rig polls by purposely over-sampling to get the outcome they they want. Imagine that? Just recently an ABC/WAPO poll has Clinton up by 12 points over Trump. Really, who honestly believes any candidate would have a 12 point lead? It happens when you skew polling data and over sample by 9 points. So what is this farce intended to do, depress the voting turnout of course and have people believe that Hillary is so far out ahead, there is no reason to vote.
Shameful, simply, corrupt and shameful.
“METHODOLOGY – This ABC News poll was conducted by landline and cellular telephone Oct. 20-22, 2016, in English and Spanish, among a random national sample of 874 likely voters. Results have a margin of sampling error of 3.5 points, including the design effect. Partisan divisions are 36-27-31 percent, Democrats – Republicans – Independents.”
More from the emails of Podesta and the rigging of polling results:
Now, for all of you out there who still aren’t convinced that the polls are “adjusted”, we present to you the following Podesta email, leaked earlier today, that conveniently spells out, in detail, exactly how to “manufacture” the desired data. The email starts out with a request for recommendations on “oversamples for polling” in order to “maximize what we get out of our media polling.”
I also want to get your Atlas folks to recommend oversamples for our polling before we start in February. By market, regions, etc. I want to get this all compiled into one set of recommendations so we can maximize what we get out of our media polling.
The email even includes a handy, 37-page guide with the following poll-rigging recommendations. In Arizona, over sampling of Hispanics and Native Americans is highly recommended:
Research, microtargeting & polling projects
- Over-sample Hispanics
- Use Spanish language interviewing. (Monolingual Spanish-speaking voters are among the lowest turnout Democratic targets)
- Over-sample the Native American population
For Florida, the report recommends “consistently monitoring” samples to makes sure they’re “not too old” and “has enough African American and Hispanic voters.” Meanwhile, “independent” voters in Tampa and Orlando are apparently more dem friendly so the report suggests filling up independent quotas in those cities first.
- Consistently monitor the sample to ensure it is not too old, and that it has enough African American and Hispanic voters to reflect the state.
- On Independents: Tampa and Orlando are better persuasion targets than north or south Florida (check your polls before concluding this). If there are budget questions or oversamples, make sure that Tampa and Orlando are included first.
Meanwhile, it’s suggested that national polls over sample “key districts / regions” and “ethnic” groups “as needed.”
- General election benchmark, 800 sample, with potential over samples in key districts/regions
- Benchmark polling in targeted races, with ethnic over samples as needed
- Targeting tracking polls in key races, with ethnic over samples as needed
ABC News/WAPO Poll: Majority Disapprove of Obama DOJ/FBI Decision Not to Charge Hillary Clinton on Emails
AMERICA KNOWS HILLARY IS A LAIR AND DEMOCRATS DON’T CARE …
A recent ABC News/WAPO poll shows that an overwhelming majority of Americas disapprove of Obama’s Department of Justice, FBI decision not to charge Hillary Clinton with a crime regarding to her emails and the use of a private server while serving as Secretary of State. An amazing 58% disagreed with the decision, while only 38 approve. What might be even more damning to the presumptive Democrat presidential nominee is that a majority of Americans also believe that her inappropriate handling of emails and circumventing record acts make them worry as to how she would act as president. Really? You mean you think she would be “Lying” Hillary, if president? Even Democrats are a bit hesitant when it comes to the honesty challenged Hillary Clinton.
However, the MSM tries to find comfort in the polling numbers by claiming that 58% state the email crimes make no difference to how they would vote. What a shock. We are a divided country where probably 90% of the 50% of Dems could care less if Hillary Clinton killed someone, they would still vote for her. What isn’t considered in the 58% is the fact that there are many on the right that were never going to vote for her either, thus the email lies did not change anything for them either. No matter what the poll numbers say, America knows Hillary Clinton is a liar. Now its up to them to look themselves in the mirror and live with the choice.
A majority of Americans disapprove of the FBI’s recommendation not to charge Hillary Clinton with a crime over her handling of email while secretary of state, and a similar number in a new ABC News/Washington Post poll say the issue leaves them worried about how she would handle her responsibilities as president if elected.
Most also say the email controversy won’t affect their vote in the presidential election. But 28 percent say it leaves them less likely to support her, versus 10 percent who say it makes them more likely to do so.
Overall, 56 percent disapprove of FBI Director James Comey’s recommendation not to charge Clinton, while just 35 percent approve. Similarly, 57 percent say the incident makes them worried about how Clinton might act as president if she is elected, with most very worried about it. Just 39 percent feel the issue isn’t related to how she would perform as president.
ITS ALL ABOUT THE TRENDING …
For the first time the Real Clear Politics average of national polls shows Donald Trump up 0.4 points over Hillary Clinton. The score is Trump 44.0, Clinton 43.6. This erases a 20 point lead that Hillary had back in July 2015. And more recently, an 11 point lead Hillary had over Trump in March 23, 2016. It is obvious that Trump is surging and trending up, while Hillary is falling. This has to bring panic to Team Hillary and the DNC as Trump is solidifying support behind him while the Democrats become more and more divided and violent as Bernie Sanders vows to fight on to the convention. So MSM, which party is having a civil war again?
The polls in play that show either Trump surging into the lead or making up a great deal of ground on the struggling Hillary Clinton are as follows.
As Don Surber opines, “Remember how Charles Krauthammer said if Trump won the nomination he could lose like Goldwater? National polls today confirm that once again, Krauthammer may have gotten Trump’s chances wrong again.”
HMM, THE TREND IS ACROSS THE BOARD …
A new Washington Post poll on the presidential race reveals a shocker that the WAPO hates to admit, Republican Donald Trump leads Democrat Hillary Clinton among registered voters 46% to 44%. Get used to the bias media coverage Donald, they are all in for Hillary.
It’s not the headline, and it takes 219 words to get there, but a new Washington Post poll on the presidential race reveals that Republican Donald Trump leads Democrat Hillary Clinton among registered voters 46 percent to 44 percent.
Inside the Post’s story about the poll is this paragraph:
“At this point, the two candidates are in a statistical dead heat among registered voters, with Trump favored by 46 percent and Clinton favored by 44 percent. That represents an 11-point shift toward the presumptive Republican nominee since March. Among all adults, Clinton holds a six-point lead (48 percent to 42 percent), down from 18 points in March.”
WELL IMAGINE THAT, 90% OF NATIVE AMERICANS ARE NOT OFFENDED BY REDSKINS, HMM, ISN’T THAT A MANDATE?
A WAPO poll finds that 90% of Native Americans say they ARE NOT offended by the Washington Redskins name. WOW, 90%! You can’t find 9 in 10 people top agree on anything these days. The poll asked only “Native Americans” the question if the professional football team in Washington calls itself the Washington Redskins. As a Native American, do you find that name offensive or doesn’t it bother you? An astounding 90% said they were not offended, 9% said they were and 1% had no opinion and could have cared less. So who exactly is so offended and insulted by the Redskin name? Once again we are witness to a group of 5 people who claim to speak for the other 99% This a Washington Post independent poll, not one conducted by Washington Redskins owner Daniel Schneider for his own self-serving reasons. Those on the offended by anything side will be hard pressed to condemn these poll results.
Nine in 10 Native Americans say they are not offended by the Washington Redskins name, according to a new Washington Post poll that shows how few ordinary Indians have been persuaded by a national movement to change the football team’s moniker.
The survey of 504 people across every state and the District reveals that the minds of Native Americans have remained unchanged since a 2004 poll by the Annenberg Public Policy Center found the same result. Responses to The Post’s questions about the issue were broadly consistent regardless of age, income, education, political party or proximity to reservations.
Among the Native Americans reached over a five-month period ending in April, more than 7 in 10 said they did not feel the word “Redskin” was disrespectful to Indians. An even higher number — 8 in 10 — said they would not be offended if a non-native called them that name.
