If there’s one thing we know, Donald Trump fans hate being cornered and are nothing without the support of their fellow brainless peers. So that’s why four Trump lovers were more than comfortable going on CNN to air their complaints that poll results – just like this election – have apparently been “skewed” to favor Trump’s rival, Hillary Clinton. Really, these people just cannot come to terms that Trump is just THAT awful and is losing fair and square.
CNN’s Brian Stelter was brave enough to have Trump supporters Scottie Nell Hughes, Amy Kremer, Kristin Tate and John Phillips on “Reliable Sources” over the weekend and it was probably the ultimate test in self-control. As Stelter brought up the fact that many Trump fans are questioning the accuracy of recent polls that have shown Clinton nearing a double-digit lead, his pro-Trump guests could not have been more delusional.
Whining about media bias, Stelter’s Trump-loving panel insisted that the media mostly aired anti-Trump views. They even went as far as to accuse the media of continuously drawing attention to Trump’s controversies, despite the fact that Trump creates new ones on a daily basis. When Stelter came to Clinton’s defense and suggested that Trump’s mishaps got more airtime because Clinton’s were “not as big,” Kremer whined:
It’s not the media’s place to determine what’s newsworthy and what’s not.
Stelter was stunned by this, countering that it actually IS the media’s job and questioned whether complaining about media bias is really just “victimhood.” That’s when Kremer decided to change the subject and claim that along with a biased media, polls were also “skewed.” She said:
You know, polling can be skewed too. By the way the questions are [asked], the number Democrats versus Republicans that are polled. So, you can’t say that there’s not any bias in the polling because I believe there certainly is.
Stelter brought up the fact that the GOP has a habit of questioning polls – it did the same thing in 2012 when Mitt Romney lost to President Barack Obama. Stelter said, “Supporters were convinced he was going to win when he wasn’t.” Kremer couldn’t be reasoned with and insisted that Trump still has a chance despite losing support by the day.
A poll is only a snapshot in time. If people really want to elect Donald Trump, they need to be out there working for Donald Trump until the last ballot is cast.
Stelter countered, “But what if I take like 50 snapshots? The Real Clear Politics average has Clinton up by 7 points, that’s outside the margin of error.”
This segment got even more insane when Hughes jumped in and insisted that voters shouldn’t even be paying attention to the polls because surveys are done in Clinton’s favor.
So when you look at that number, of course the percentage is going to be more skewed in Hillary Clinton’s favor. They also weighted the poll differently in August, where they put more weight on the African-American vote, the female vote and the youth vote. Three areas that Hillary Clinton does well on.
That’s why when people see these polls, it’s more important that they go and they get their own research, they pull the numbers themselves.
Stelter suggested it might be dangerous to tell Americans not to trust the polls and Hughes insisted that people should “do your research.” It should be noted that the polling service Hughes is complaining about has a 100% accuracy rating in calling presidential races for Time magazine and has an overall pollster grade of A-.
The GOP is in severe denial and only getting more insane and desperate as it becomes clear that Trump’s self-made, back-to-back controversies are ruining his chance at the White House.
