    So are we gonna go thru this again all next year? Just like we did in 2016 when most leftist polls had Hillary between 10 and 15 points ahead of Trump? :auiqs.jpg:
    Well so far, they were way off in North Carolina.
    But what we have to look for, and obviously, who is taking the polls.
    ABC/Compost? yah. didnt they already declare Hillary the winner in early 2016?

    The polls had Hillary at the right numbers in 2016, the problem was that was 46 to 48 percent, the polls had trump at 42 to 41 percent. the thing that happened was NO ONE took into account that large UNDECIDED vote in the polls, and by and large it all went to Trump.

    The polls were right about Hillary getting millions more votes

    From ONE State. California does not elected our President alone. Before California was counted Trump was ahead by a million votes.

    By the way just for a history lesson, tell us when we EVER elected a President by popular vote?

    And those polls are the ones that do not matter.

    The polls that were reported on the most, the polls that led to numbers like Hillary having a 90% chance of victory, the polls that are used to predict state electoral college outcomes were way off.

    Hiding behind the national poll does not change the fact that the pollsters screwed up in 2016.

    3 million wasn’t a landslide for her
    nor a cloud of dust for him

    In 2008, Obama won the election by 10 million votes
    Obama carried 28 states, DC and the 2nd district in NE
    McCain lost by 10 million votes and carried 22 states
    131.3 million votes were cast

    People were more than ready
    for the kind of change Obama was selling
    Hope bought that change

    In 2012, Obama won re election by only 5 million votes
    5 million fewer votes than the previous election
    He carried 26 states and DC, losing Indiana and NC
    Romney lost by 5 million votes and carried 24 states
    129.1 million votes were cast, 2.2 million fewer then 2008

    5 million voters wanted a refund
    and returned the change they bought
    2.2 million voters went bankrupt

    In 2016, Trump lost the popular vote by 3 million votes
    He carried 30 states and the 2nd district of ME
    Hillary won the popular vote by 3 million votes
    She carried only 20 states and DC

    There were 136.7 million votes cast in 2016
    7.6 million more voters than the previous election
    and 5.6 million more voters than 2008

    People want change

    No what the polls did was grossly over sample democrats counter to the real political makeup of the country
    this has been pointed out poll after poll

    and by the way, the only pollster that was dead on accurate was the one poll that didn't oversample democrats the very poll you liberal love to claim is rightwing there fo bias inaccurate and not credibale

    Which won't happen this time.

    The thing was, a LOT of people voted for Trump, not because they actually wanted him to be president, but because they wanted to send a message to both parties they were sick of the status quo.

    By now, it's pretty clear what a bad idea that was. When the economy tanks next year, it will be clearer it was a truly awful idea.
