Right now the polls show Joe Biden leading Donald Trump.
But the President and his supporters remember that the polls were wrong in 2016.
And there is one truth about the polls that the media doesn’t want to tell you.
In an interview with Breitbart, Trump campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh claimed the current public polling did not accurately capture the true state of the Presidential race and was instead designed to suppress the enthusiasm of the President’s voters.
“They are trying to create a narrative, and these polls are designed — this is why they are released and published — they’re designed to create headlines, and they are actively trying to suppress the enthusiasm of President Trump’s voters,” Murtaugh explained.
Murtaugh claimed that some of the polls that showed Biden with healthy leads over the President only included 24 percent of Republicans in their sample when exit polls from 2016 and 2018 showed the electorate was made up of 33 percent Republicans.
“Twenty-four percent — less than a quarter of the country. That compares to Republican turnout according to exit polls in both 2016 and 2018 of 33 percent, so they’re undersampling Republicans by 9 points in that poll,” Murtaugh added.
“They just no longer exist? They just wiped out more than a quarter of Republicans and said, ‘OK, here’s the poll.’ Well of course it shows that Joe Biden is ahead. But we know that there is enormous enthusiasm on the president’s side,” Murtaugh continued.
In 2016, polls in key swing states like Wisconsin and Michigan showed Hillary Clinton leading Donald Trump by six points heading into Election Day.
But these surveys missed the mark because they did not sample enough non-college educated voters.
Will 2020 be a repeat of this polling meltdown?
The President and many of his supporters are convinced this will be the case.
