Why the polls got it wrong

by

This simple answer is that polls and pollsters are there to make money.  They are there to sway the vote not reflect it. There is an entire industry devoted to politics, not governing but politics and they get filthy rich win or lose. 

You’ll also notice as the elections near the end the polls tighten.  That’s because they are often never really that far apart and it gives the pollster that ability to say, “look that’s what I predicted. It was within the margin of error.” They are a scam as much of politics is.

    This is the “political industrial complex.” They generate part of their revenue from tawdry gossip entertainment . . . and part from the financing and execution of political campaigns . . . . plus they are linked into the “think tank industrial complex” and the contest of ideas.

    This election is unprecedented in American history. At the last minute a lot of millennials and college educated females who don’t like Trump voted for him. Trump did slightly worse among caucasian males without college degrees (his base) than I thought he would. Turnout among Latino American and Asian American voters was slightly less than expected. Trump also received a slightly larger percentage of the Latino American and Asian American vote than expected. (Trump won 29% of the Latino American and Asian American vote.)

    I don’t believe any candidate for President has ever received this many votes from voters who don’t like them. Hillary elected Trump.

    Like I used to say, polls are designed to manipulate public opinion, not reflect it.

    A lot of people put their faith in polls, and I think it is unwise. But then again, they don’t listen to me.

    Benefit of the Alt Right and Bernie burned out voters.

    The DNC needs to make changes. Super delegates that can be bought before one primary vote is even cast, and back door deals between the DNC and Clinton campaign, elected the worst Republican candidate in my lifetime. Thankfully they manipulated Sanders out of the nomination. President Sanders would have been a mess.
