In the world of American political psy-ops, nothing is more precious to the mainstream media than the “polls.” The supposedly “scientific” questionaires that a set group of “likely voters” with land lines take that claim to show the pulse of the people, and give an accurate snapshot of opinions and viewpoints of the day. When any one poll is taken, the news people, as one person in this house says, go crazy.
Well, following Donald Trump’s masterful performance at the townhall “debate” on Sunday evening, an NBC/Wall Street Journal poll was released showing Hillary Clinton being ahead in the race by more than 10 points. Once the political castaways got a good look at the numbers, questions, and some pertinent dates, the poll is being called a fraud. A TOTAL-AND-COMPLETE-FRAUD. Why? Because:
The poll was largely taken BEFORE the debate.
(DC Whispers) The poll was initiated two days before the debate, and was concluded on the day of the debate. Worse yet, the majority of the polling was completed before the debate, thus, making this very much NOT a post-second debate poll.
Yeah, there’s no way that this poll can be accurate as a post-debate snapshot if it wasn’t done completely after the event. But that is the story that is being pushed.
In addition, if one looks at some of the questions asked and the answers, the reported results are fishy:
- 89% non-Hispanic is NOT an accurate representation.
- 32% Independent, and the poll is weighted toward Democrats even though they’ve been bleeding voters this year.
- 46% of the people polled claim to have voted for Barack Obama in 2012, and 32% for Romney. Romney didn’t lose that badly.
As if the “methodology” wasn’t just a bit off in representation of the various demographic groups, there is the little matter of the group that actually conducted the poll. Sundance explains:
Do you see: Hart Research Associates/Public Opinion Strategies?
Hart Research Associates is headed up by Peter D Hart (founder), and Geoff Garin (President) – SEE HERE
Now look at what role Geoff Garin, Hart Research Associate President, is currently occupying (link here):…
OK, so Mr. Geoff Garin, the President of Hart Research and Associates”, is currently working as “a strategic adviser for Priorities USA in support of Hillary Clinton’s election“. Gee, I wonder why the media never tells us that part?
And that isn’t all. This particular poll just happened to fit into a timeline that was criticized by even the most green political neophytes. It was done immediately after an edited tape that has been proven to originate with Donald Trump’s political adversaries and was put out with the express purpose to sink his campaign. Again, Sundance lays it out:
♦ Friday NBC/Universal releases the controversial Trump tape done by Billy Bush for Access Hollywood.
♦ Saturday and Sunday the same NBC/Universal coordinate with Hart Research and Associates for a poll/survey.
♦ Hart Research President, Geoff Garin, works for (and is paid by) Hillary Clinton’s Super-PAC.
♦ Monday, Hart Research, release the “cooked poll”, and NBC/WSJ begin promoting, while other media pile on to support.
And NBC scrubbed a segment from MSNBC’s Morning Joe where people who were party to the entire affair discussed it. (Fortunately, Mediate managed to capture it before the clip really disappeared.)
Stunning, isn’t it?
So, that amazingly demoralizing poll that came out right after the debate was nowhere close to honest on a number of fronts. It was and is a complete fraud. It’s time for all of us to quit paying attention. All the poll news is doing is giving We the People heartburn.
