What’s to stop the media that constantly hammers President Trump from playing around with the polls to influence early voting? Aside from a loss of credibility if they continue with this to Nov. 3rd, there is no downside. Even with that factor, they have so much at stake this time around that they might be willing to chance it.
Polls are supposed to be a snapshot in time, couched as ‘if the election were held today, who would you support’? With the prevalence of early and mass mail-in voting. This is on what is happening in real-time, except that there aren’t any results to act as a quality control check.
Early voting changes the dynamic of polls predicting what will happen to what is happening at the moment, introducing all manner of opportunities for media exert undue influence on the results.
The video from MRCTV is on four polls that are adverse to the left’s national media narrative. They are like many other aspects of this election run contrary to that exhibited by the polls from the nation’s socialist media. The common refrain is that if you were to look at everything except the polls, you would expect a Trump victory. This is why they are out of place.
The first poll mentioned was a Gallup poll that has among other things that had a “clear majority of registered voters (56%) saying they are better off now than they were four years ago, while 32% said they are worse off.”
Followed up another Gallup poll that indicates that Americans remain distrustful of mass media. With Republican % great deal/fair amount down to 10% while Democrats at 70% and independents hovering around 36%
Then there is was the albeit unscientific social media poll from Telemundo that indicated an overwhelming majority of Spanish-speaking Americans say Trump won the recent debate.
Finally, she mentions the Morning consult/Politico poll that shows growing support for the confirmation of Amy Coney Barrett with 46% of voters back Trump’s nominee, up 9 points from late last month.
Taken together along with all of the other indicators outside of the polling from the national socialist media, one would get the distinct impression that President Trump is running away with this.
But then you compare this to the gloom and doom polling from the media and you see a giant disconnect between the polls and reality. Then you have to factor in that for these polls to valid, Biden would have to outperform past victories. As Steve Deace detailed in a recent article in the Blaze:
According to Steve Deace, voters would have to believe that Democratic nominee Joe Biden is a stronger candidate than Barack Obama was in 2008, and Donald Trump is a weaker incumbent at this stage than George H.W. Bush was in 1992.
He also points out that a presidential win has to include the state of Florida, with:
The latest Quinnipiac poll has Biden outperforming the margin of victory (+/- 2.491%) in the last seven presidential elections by 400%.
Something odd is going on here, the polls don’t match up with the facts on the ground, while the polls are making some ridiculous assumptions. Which brings us back to our original question: What’s to stop the media from playing around with the polls?
COVID-19 may take down an independent news outlet
Nobody said running a media site would be easy. We could use some help keeping this site afloat.
Colleagues have called me the worst fundraiser ever. My skills are squarely rooted on the journalistic side of running a news outlet. Paying the bills has never been my forte, but we’ve survived. We have ads on the site that help, but since the site’s inception this has been a labor of love that otherwise doesn’t bring in the level of revenue necessary to justify it.
When I left a nice, corporate career in 2017, I did so knowing I wouldn’t make nearly as much money. But what we do at NOQ Report to deliver the truth and fight the progressive mainstream media narrative that has plagued this nation is too important for me to sacrifice it for the sake of wealth. We know we’ll never make a ton of money this way, and we’re okay with that.
Things have become harder with the coronavirus lockdowns. Both ad money and donations that have kept us afloat for a while have dropped dramatically. We thought we could weather the storm, but the so-called “surge” or “2nd-wave” that mainstream media and Democrats are pushing has put our prospects in jeopardy. In short, we are now in desperate need of financial assistance.
The best way NOQ Report readers can help is to donate. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well. We need approximately $11,500 to stay afloat for the rest of 2020, but more would be wonderful and any amount that brings us closer to our goal is greatly appreciated.
The second way to help is to become a partner. We’ve strongly considered seeking angel investors in the past but because we were paying the bills, it didn’t seem necessary. Now, we’re struggling to pay the bills. This shouldn’t be the case as our traffic the last year has been going up dramatically. June, 2018, we had 11,678 visitors. A year later in June, 2019, we were up to 116,194. In June, 2020, we had 614,192. We’re heading in the right direction and we believe we’re ready talk to patriotic investors who want to not only “get in on the action” but more importantly who want to help America hear the truth. Interested investors should contact me directly with the contact button above.
Election year or not, coronavirus lockdowns or not, anarchic riots or not, the need for truthful journalism endures. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report going.
