‘Rigged’ Message Gains Steam, Donald Trump Catching Up to Hillary Clinton in Latest Reuters Poll

 

Reuters is reporting that Republican nominee Donald Trump is gaining on Hillary Clinton. According to the report, voters have been receptive to Trump’s message that the political system is “rigged” against his campaign and against the interests of the American people. Reuters found that an astonishing seven in ten Republicans believe that a Clinton victory would be the result of a rigged process.

“Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump gained on his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton among American voters this week, cutting her lead nearly in half, according to Reuters/Ipsos polling released on Friday… Clinton led Trump 44 percent to 40 percent, according to the Oct. 14-20 Reuters/Ipsos poll, a 4-point lead. That compared with 44 percent for Clinton and 37 percent for Trump in the Oct. 7-13 poll released last week,” theReuters report states.

The report documents how “polling data showed Trump’s argument that the Nov. 8 election is ‘rigged’ against him has resonated with members of his party… the Reuters/Ipsos data showed only half of Republicans would accept Clinton as their president, and nearly 70 percent of them said a Clinton victory would be because of illegal voting or vote rigging.”

Throughout the last week, Trump has repeatedly argued that the political system is “rigged.” Trump has pointed specifically to voter fraud, the decision to “let Crooked [Hillary] off the hook… for [her] crime,” the questionable practices during the primary process that helped enable Clinton to prevail over Bernie Sanders to become her party’s nominee, and corporate media’s collusion with Clinton’s campaign revealed by WikiLeaks.

Reuters reports that Trump’s campaign message of railing against political corruption has been embraced at Trump rallies:

Trump’s crowd chanted “Lock her up!” at a rally in Johnstown, Pennsylvania after he declared Clinton a “corrupt globalist,” a reference to campaign documents released by WikiLeaks in which Clinton was quoted advocating free trade and open borders.

Yet beyond just his supporters, Trump’s message that the political system is rigged and corrupt has similarly been echoed by his detractors on the other side of the aisle.

For instance, far-left progressive and Green Party presidential nominee Jill Stein and her party have repeatedly attacked the “rigged” and corrupt system that was stacked in favor of Clinton against Sanders.

"...,the Reuters/Ipsos data showed only half of Republicans would accept Clinton as their president,..."
I am trying to figure out why I care? Her mandate will be for those who voted her, not against her. lol The gaunlet was already thrown by sour grapes Gingrich when he said the GOP will not accept a Hillary Supreme Court nomination.
See you with more blocked legislation for the next eight years. You can howl to the moon while Hillary signs EOs. Fact is, you might send the GOP on an unpaid vacation and save a billion, because this is going to be a repeat of the last 8 years.

trump is going to slaughter clinton nov 8

Lead floats.

The only way that bitch could win is with a rigged system. Thankfully Russia can remove her any time they want.

Yep, I thought you were whining about a rigged election? LMAO!!

So I see you're a big supporter of Russia, commie. Just like your dead man walking candidate.

The only way that NASTY BITCH can win is having the much better ground game, winning the debates, nothave 13 members of the opposite sex accuse her of assault, having a working knowledge of foreign affairs and have women, Latinos and blacks firmly committed to her.

But of course that's all rigged.

New Podesta Email Exposes Democrat National Socialist Playbook For Rigging Polls Through "Oversamples"

Earlier this morning we wrote about the obvious sampling bias in the latest ABC / Washington Post poll that showed a 12-point national advantage for Hillary. Like many of the recent polls from Reuters, ABC and The Washington Post, this latest poll included a 9-point sampling bias toward registered democrats.

Of course, while democrats may enjoy a slight registration advantage of a couple of points, it is nowhere near the 9 points reflected in this latest poll.

"METHODOLOGY – This ABC News poll was conducted by landline and cellular telephone Oct. 20-22, 2016, in English and Spanish, among a random national sample of 874 likely voters. Results have a margin of sampling error of 3.5 points, including the design effect. Partisan divisions are 36-27-31 percent, Democrats - Republicans - Independents."

Meanwhile, we also pointed out that with huge variances in preference across demographics one can easily "rig" a poll by over indexing to one group vs. another. As a quick example, the ABC / WaPo poll found that Hillary enjoys a 79-point advantage over Trump with black voters. Therefore, even a small "oversample" of black voters of 5% could swing the overall poll by 3 full points. Moreover, the pollsters don't provide data on the demographic mix of their polls which makes it impossible to "fact check" the bias...convenient.

Now, for all of you out there who still aren't convinced that the polls are "adjusted", we present to you the following Podesta email, leaked earlier today, that conveniently spells out, in detail, exactly how to "manufacture" the desired data. The email starts out with a request for recommendations on "oversamples for polling" in order to "maximize what we get out of our media polling."

The email even includes a handy, 37-page guide with the following poll-rigging recommendations. In Arizona, over sampling of Hispanics and Native Americans is highly recommended:

I also want to get your Atlas folks to recommend oversamples for our polling before we start in February. By market, regions, etc. I want to get this all compiled into one set of recommendations so we can maximize what we get out of our media polling.

For Florida, the report recommends "consistently monitoring" samples to makes sure they're "not too old" and "has enough African American and Hispanic voters." Meanwhile, "independent" voters in Tampa and Orlando are apparently more dem friendly so the report suggests filling up independent quotas in those cities first.

Research, microtargeting & polling projects

- Over-sample Hispanics

- Use Spanish language interviewing. (Monolingual Spanish-speaking voters are among the lowest turnout Democratic targets)

- Over-sample the Native American population

Meanwhile, it's suggested that national polls over sample "key districts / regions" and "ethnic" groups "as needed."

- Consistently monitor the sample to ensure it is not too old, and that it has enough African American and Hispanic voters to reflect the state.

- On Independents: Tampa and Orlando are better persuasion targets than north or south Florida (check your polls before concluding this). If there are budget questions or oversamples, make sure that Tampa and Orlando are included first.

 

- General election benchmark, 800 sample, with potential over samples in key districts/regions

- Benchmark polling in targeted races, with ethnic over samples as needed

- Targeting tracking polls in key races, with ethnic over samples as needed

And that's how you manufacture a 12-point lead for your chosen candidate and effectively chill the vote of your opposition.

 

Here is the full report of "Polling & Media Recommendations" from "The Atlas Project."

I believe Trump has a HUGE ACE in the HOLE... there is a HUGE segment of Democrats out there, blue collar in their beliefs, that although they might not admit they like Trump, will, vote for him on election day...

 

They can RELATE to his position on JOBS, on the ECONOMY, on IMMIGRATION, and LAW and ORDER...

 

A vote for Hillary is JUST more Obama... a VOTE for Trump, is a VOTE FOR CHANGE !!
