Trump Campaign Manager Goes into Full Poll Truther Mode


Recommended Posts

Trump is currently trailing Clinton by a large margin, according to the HuffPost Pollster aggregate of available polling data. Of the most recent 20 surveys of the race, not a single one shows him ahead. (Even a recent online poll, conducted by Reuters, found Clinton up by 12 points.)

 

But that hasnt stopped some of Trumps surrogates and supporters from trying to unskew polls, wish them away, or, like Conway, claim that voters are secretly pining after the real estate mogul when not in the presence of family or friends.

 

But that hasn't stopped Trump's surrogates and supporters from trying to unskew polls, wish them away, or, like Conway, claim that voters are secretly pining after the real estate mogul when not in the presence of family or friends.

 

But as HuffPosts Sam Stein and Ariel Edwards-Levy reported earlier this month, pollsters for both parties say there is little evidence to suggest that Trump voters are being seriously undercounted:

 

Its possible [that some respondents wont admit to supporting Trump], but I dont think so, said Bill McInturff, a longtime Republican pollster. For two candidates with unusual negatives, the ballot by sub-group looks pretty traditional for what weve been seeing the last few cycles.

 

We wont be able to say for sure until after Election Day, but its very unlikely, said Mark Mellman, a longtime Democratic pollster. Most of these kinds of theories dont hold much water. People claimed primary polls were undercounting the Trump vote and they did not.
