Media Polling Allies of Hillary Clinton Spell Doom Late in the Game

The Clinton campaign continues to whistle past the graveyard. Even their strongest media supporters such as The Washington Post, CNN, NBC, The Los Angeles Times and many more are spelling disaster November 8th for Hillary Rodham Clinton.

One such biased ally, ABC News, finds Trump earns the support of 46 percent of likely voters while Clinton only earns 45 percent. Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson has three percent support and Jill Stein only has two percent.

Since Friday, with the FBI announcement of new possible evidence in the ongoing criminal investigation into her email server, Clinton has lost 7 points among voters who are enthusiastic about her candidacy. Trump leads Clinton by eight points among voters who are very enthusiastic about his bid.

The results from some of the most dubious polls are nothing short of wild despair for Hillary’s handlers. ABC News warns that Trump is technically only leading by 0.7 points and reminds readers that Romney led the poll by one point in 2012 before he lost to President Barack Obama. Yet the most accurate poll, Rasmussen, the last two presidential campaigns, continues to survey a rising tide and bigger leads for Trump.

It should be noted that Rasmussen was the only major poll to indicate Ronald Reagan would beat incumbent President Jimmy Carter in 1980. This election is beginning to mirror that unlikely victory by Reagan in many ways. Reagan was portrayed as reckless, ignorant, dumb, warmonger, grade B actor, etc. Very much the way the far-left media has portrayed Donald Trump. The surge can be attributed to an underlying anger that goes virtually undetected until the voter is safe inside the voting curtains.

Liberals can attribute that to their intolerance of other opinions and their assault on freedom of speech. Many Americans simply refuse to tell polling surveys their choice out of fear of being labeled a racist, bigot, homophobic, Islamophobic, any other phobic they chose to label Americans they don’t agree with. Thus, the “deplorables,” as Hillary labeled millions of Americans, vote their conscience behind the curtain the Founding Fathers insisted upon.

Comparable to news releases days before the Carter v Reagan election, the ABC poll sent out a press release that said, “Taking it to the decimal for illustrative purposes, a mere seven-tenths of a percentage point divides them,” it warned.

Ronald Wilson Reagan went on to a stunning landslide victory that November in 1980. Is it déjà vu all over again as Yogi Berra said so famously? Or could it be the majority of Americans have seen enough the last eight years and do not need a look-a-like prototype the next four years?
