Two new polls had Democrats wondering if they were about to make the same mistake as 2016
In 2016, the polls were wrong.
As the 2020 election draws near, fake news reporters and Democrats claim the polls showing Joe Biden in the lead should be taken as gospel.
But two new polls had Democrats wondering they were about to make the same mistake as 2016.
In 2016, two of the most accurate pollsters were Rasmussen and the IBD/TIPP tracking poll.
Contrary to the Fake News Media and major university polls, they both show a tight race.
Rasmussen lists Doanld Trump’s approval rating at 52 percent and shows Trump surging to within three points of Joe Biden in the national polls.
John Nolte of Breitbart wrote:
The president currently holds a 52 percent job approval rating, compared to 48 percent who disapprove. This is Trump’s first lift above 50 in this poll since late last month, since his first debate with Biden and trip to Walter Reed Hospital with the coronavirus…
…In a head-to-head matchup with Biden, Rasmussen’s weekly poll shows Trump surging. Biden is still up 49 to 46 percent, but at this same time last week, Biden was up a whopping 12 points. The week before that, he was up eight points. Rasmussen also points out that this is the “first time in a month that Biden’s support has fallen below 50%.”
IBD/TIPP found Trump cutting Biden’s lead nearly in half from nine points to five points.
Nolte also wrote, “This isn’t the only polling to show Trump on the move. Along with Rasmussen, the IBD/TIPP poll was one of the most accurate during the disastrous polling year that was 2016, and right now, that poll shows a five-point race when Biden had a nine-point lead on October 13.”
Major media polls have suffered significant errors in the 2014, 2016, and 2018 elections.
For example in Florida’s 2018 gubernatorial race CNN showed Democrat Andrew Gillum leading Republican Ron DeSantis by 12 points in an October poll.
Quinnipiac had Gillum up seven in their final poll.
Ron DeSantis won that race.
The pollsters who got 2016 right are saying the major media and university polls are calling the electorate wrong in 2020.
