All the current public polling data shows Joe Biden leading Donald Trump.
The President’s supporters look back to the polling errors of 2016 and are hoping the pollsters are once again making the same mistakes.
In an interview with Fox News, Donald Trump looked into the camera and made this stunning confession about the polls.
“Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace grilled President Trump about polls showing Joe Biden would decisively defeat the President this November.
The current Real Clear Politics polling averages show Joe Biden holding an 8.6 percent lead.
President Trump confronted these poll numbers by noting that in 2016, all the polls said Hillary Clinton would easily win the election.
“First of all, I’m not losing, because those are fake polls. They were fake in 2016 and now they’re even more fake. The polls were much worse in 2016. They interviewed 22 percent Republicans. Well, how do you do 22 percent Republican? You see what’s going on,” President Trump told Wallace.
The President told Wallace that his campaign’s internal polling painted a much different picture than the media’s polls.
“I have other polls that put me leading, and we have polls where I’m leading. I have a poll where we’re leading in every swing state. And I don’t believe that your — first of all, the Fox polls, whoever does your Fox polls, they’re among the worst. They got it all wrong in 2016. They’ve been wrong on every poll I’ve ever seen,” President Trump concluded.
In a separate interview with Breitbart, Trump’s initial 2016 campaign manager Corey Lewandowksi backed up the President’s claim that the public polls were off.
Lewandowski – who is a New Hampshire native – said internal polling showed President Trump within the margin of error in his home state, which Donald Trump only lost by 2,700 votes in 2016.
“In my home state of New Hampshire, every private internal poll that I have seen — not just of the Trump campaign’s, but of other candidates’ races — [is] showing that [the state] is absolutely within the margin,” Lewandowski told Breitbart.
The Trump campaign’s actions also tell this story.
President Trump had scheduled a rally in New Hampshire before bad weather forced its cancellation.
The most valuable asset for any campaign is the candidate’s time.
President Trump’s re-election campaign would not have sent the President to New Hampshire for a rally had their internal polling data not shown New Hampshire was within reach.
In 2016, the polls got key states like Michigan and Wisconsin wrong because they did not sample enough voters without college degrees.
Are the polls making that same mistake in 2020?
President Trump believes they are.
