Ha! Knee slapper! It’s almost eerie the way that the mainstream media thinks we’ve all forgotten about how terribly inaccurate all the 2016 Clinton-Trump polling was.
It never occurred to any of the professional polling outlets in 2016 that just because registered Republican voters were refusing to talk to them, didn’t mean that they were not going to vote.
“Oh my gosh! 90% of the people who were willing to talk to us say they’re voting for Hillary!”
It’s not technically accurate to say that the polls were “wrong” in 2016. They were reporting the data they had accurately. They just didn’t seem to realize that all of the conservatives they were calling were hanging up on them without providing an answer.
What’s truly surprising is that none of them learned from that mistake. They obviously haven’t adjusted their polling models all that much.
How many of your Trump-supporting friends have privately told you, “That’s it, I’m throwing my support behind Joe Biden. He’s totally going to make the economy better and put a leash on all these insane protesters!”
Anyone? Exactly. The polls this year are a repeat of 2016.
