It has become abundantly clear in this election cycle that the political pundits and “strategists” who opine daily on the many mainstream media are really quite stupid. They have proven themselves to be nothing more than wannabe know-it-alls who simply regurgitate what they think will make them sound knowledgeable.
Proof to this point comes from the many “strategists” and political “analysists” who are talking about the lead Hillary Clinton has in the polls. However, a newly released email by WikiLeaks proves the Clinton team is pressuring the mainstream media to systematically and deliberately over-sample Clinton-friendly demographics in their polling. It was their game plan all along to propagandize huge leads in the polls to suppress voter turnout for Donald Trump.

This is the intrinsic danger of a politically corrupted mainstream media. This successful attempt by the Clinton campaign to propagandize the polling data, just before election day, is exactly what Donald Trump is talking about when he says “the system is rigged.”
An example of one of the more obvious sampling biases comes from the latest ABC/Washington Post poll that gave Hillary Clinton a 12-point lead nationally over Donald Trump. As with recent polls from Reuters and ABC, this ABC/Post poll included a nine-point sampling bias toward registered Democrats.
In publishing its methodology, ABC News stated it sampled 874 likely voters and the poll had a margin of error of 3.5 points. They openly admitted the, “Partisan divisions are 36-27-31 percent: Democrats – Republicans – Independents.” While Democrats may have a very slight voter registration advantage, it is nowhere near the nine points used in this poll.
While the pollsters insist they are using models established on the previous voting cycles of 2008 and 2012, the truth is something more. The newly released WikiLeaks emails of Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta prove this in no uncertain terms.
One Podesta email, leaked earlier today, spells out – in detail – exactly how to “manufacture” the desired polling data. The email starts out with a request for recommendations from Clinton campaign staff on how to execute “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.” Podesta writes. “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 included a 37-page guide with recommendations for rigging the polling in Arizona. It specifically tasked the pollsters with oversampling Hispanics and Native Americans, saying it was “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,” the memo read.
In discussing Florida, the report recommends “consistently monitoring” samples to make sure they don’t include too many seniors and that they do include an oversampling of “African American and Hispanic voters.” It also directed pollsters to oversample Clinton-friendly Independent voters in the Tampa Area.
The report also suggested that, in national polls, the pollsters oversample “key districts/regions” and “ethnic groups as needed.”
This is why you are hearing the talking heads say the polls show Trump to be losing. These pundits are simply too stupid to understand they are being manipulated, or they have no integrity whatsoever.
This why we need to get the vote out for Donald Trump! We can make the intellectually stunted talking heads scream “It’s just like Brexit!”
