Media is Deliberately Skewing Trump's Poll Results to Suppress Voter Turnout, Zogby Says

It’s a toss-up right now, as the pro-Biden media try to suppress Trump's vote

WASHINGTON, D.C. (Texas Insider Report) — “I’m a Democrat, but I just don’t think that the 2020 poll sampling is accurate," said John Zogby, who today operates the Zogby Strategies Poll after selling his namesake Zogby International firm in 2011. "This race is closer than you think,” he said, pointing to his firm's latest survey showing Joe Biden’s lead over President Donald Trump at two points, 49%-47%.

Yes, add the well-known and respected name of John Zogby to the growing number of Democrat pollsters who are questioning the latest major media surveys showing Democrat Joe Biden with a double-digit lead over President Donald Trump.

In his latest podcast, Zogby (right) said that he believes the polls showing a bigger Biden lead are using a bad, out-dated "sampling" model – and its one that includes far too many Democrats.

His own "sampling" method for 2020 has been designed to reflect the partisan turnout of the 2016 Presidential Election, which included roughly 34% Republicans, and about 38% Democrats.

“We believe that's a more accurate reflection of the actual turnout,” he said.

Other polls showing Biden with a large lead are often over-weighing the sampling of Democrats, he believes.

“Some of the polls that have come out, I find troubling,” he said – citing CNN, Fox, and YouGov, which give an average 15-point advantage to Democrats. CNN had it a 16-point Democrat advantage.

While Zogby didn’t cite a reason other pollsters are showing a bigger Biden lead, his son Jeremy does — Biden bias.
“To me, it’s only two things. Either it’s deliberate, or it's a projection of bias. And I'd go with the latter,” he said in their weekly podcast conversation, The Zogby Report.

“If you live in an area, and you live in an echo chamber, most of your friends think a certain way. A lot of times the echo chamber effect is that you tend to project, ‘How could people think such a certain way? Clearly, for example, the president is out of mind and he’s bad for this country. He’s bad for the world, so of course people are going to turn out in droves for Biden.’

"I’m afraid that that’s what’s happening – a projection of bias in the data,” he said.
Trump’s pollsters, not surprisingly, seem to agree.

John McLaughlin, of McLaughlin & Associates, recently sent a memo to the president entitled “Skewed Media Polls.” In it, he said the media is trying to rig the election by suppressing the GOP vote, making it look like a Biden runaway.

Wrote McLaughlin:
“The latest skewed media polls must be intentional. It’s clear that NBC, ABC and CNN who have Democrat operatives like Chuck Todd, George Stephanopoulos and other Democrats in their news operations are consistently under-polling Republicans and therefore, reporting biased polls.

"They continue to poll adults or 'Registered Voters' that skew away from 'Likely Voters.'

"So instead of the 33% Republican turnout – which actually happened in 2016 – they are reporting polls on only 26%, 25% or even 24% Republicans. For, example, the CNN poll out today is another skewed anti-Trump poll of only 25% Republican. It’s a poll of 1,259 adults – not even registered voters, let alone likely voters. 

"Since you get over 90% of the Republican vote, for every point fewer Republicans that they do not poll, they reduce your vote total by a point.

"In contrast CBS polled likely voters. CBS had 32% Republicans and a close national race.

"The bias seems to be an intentional strategy to suppress your vote.

"We can hardly wait until they start spinning a ‘Biden electoral lock.’ It has to be a strategy to counter the enthusiasm of Trump voters.”

So should voters even look at, let alone believe the media's and other national polls if they are designed more as propaganda tools to influence votes, than accurately measure them?

A key point to remember, is that the United States of America does not elect its president via a national election. Individual states, through 50 seperatly held state elections, determine which candidate becomes president.

 The nationwide"popular vote" many pollster use in "national polls" has no impact on who is actually elected to be president. State by state election results in America determines its presidents.
