The media was buzzing over the weekend about leaked internal polls from the Trump campaign.
Surveys taken in March showed Joe Biden defeating President Trump in a landslide.
And then Donald Trump’s pollster made this one astonishing claim about the 2020 presidential election.
Much was made over Trump’s internal polling from months ago that showed Joe Biden with a significant lead in key states.
But the story was misleading.
Not only were the surveys misleading, they were done using a sample of “worst-case scenario” Democrat voter turnout.
Trump’s pollster John McLaughlin appeared on a local New York radio show and told the audience that the media was misleading because the polling community did not know how to accurately measure Trump supporters.
McLaughlin also stated that Trump was “on his way to re-election.”
During Sunday’s “The Cats Roundtable” on New York 970 AM radio, President Donald Trump pollster John McLaughlin commented on the president’s chances in 2020.
McLaughlin told host John Catsimatidis that Trump is “on his way to reelection” in 2020 despite polls showing otherwise because pollsters “don’t know how to analyze” Trump voters.
“The polls, when they’re not done well, and they’re done as cheaply and inefficiently as they were done back in 2016, they’re going to be wrong again,” McLaughlin predicted. “They’re doubling down on poor science at the time. And they don’t know how to analyze these Trump voters because they don’t like talking to the media because they know the media is like 90% negative coverage of their president.”
He later added, “I truly believe the president is on his way to reelection.”
This flies in the face of the conventional media wisdom that Trump is doomed to defeat.
But with a roaring economy and peace in foreign affairs, President Trump will have strong tailwinds that could carry him to victory.
