ABC/Wapo Effectively Admit To Poll Tampering As Hillary's "Lead" Shrinks To 2-Points
by Ian R Thorpe, 29 October, 2016
A few days ago the solidly 'liberal' mainstream media (and enough British news organisations to make us worry that our country is following along the road to dystopia) were crowing that the American presidential election was all over bar the shouting and Hillary Clinton could order new curtains for The White House. As evidence of their claims they cited an ABC / Washington Post opinion poll which gave 'Crooked Hillary' a 12 point lead. Well it seems Hillary is not the only crook in the election process, her supportersd in the media are all as bent as a boxing day turd, if this and other big leads claimed for the Democrat are anything to go by. just yesterday, after coming under forensic scrutiny, the next round of polling for ABC / WaPo suggested Clinton's lead had collapsed in the space of less than a week to six points. This near impossible turn round attacted even more in depth analysis of the information gathering method used by this polling company (whose polls for other organisations show very different results) and whaddaya know? Today as the latest version of this poll shows Clinton's lead has crumbled further to just 2 points, which is within the margin of error.
Amusingly for those of us on the civilised side of The Atlantic, these new results do not reflect the latest FBI bombshell which may impact the Clinton vote as it raises the trustworthiness issue again for the Democrats campaign. Polling was concluded on October 27th. Also the poll data is distorted by an 8-point sampling advantage for Democrats
Having a qualification in statistics (not degree level at the time but probably higher now, in this era of multiple choice questions)I sat down with our Boggart Blog / Daily Stirrer colleague Xavier, who has a MSc in Engineering and a BSc in Mathematics, and we did a bit of anlaysis of our own. But first, let's look at what the pollsters say about it:
METHODOLOGY – This ABC News/Washington Post poll was conducted by landline and cellular telephone Oct. 24-27, 2016, in English and Spanish, among a random national sample of 1,148 likely voters. Results have a margin of sampling error of 3 points, including the design effect. Partisan divisions are 37-29-29 percent, Democrats-Republicans-independents.So what happened? For months, since the YK General Eection in 2015 in fact, we have been arguing that what mainstream media publish are not unbiased polls but goal-seeking reports. Research has shown that with very little tweaking of the way questions are phrased and how 'undecideds are handled polls can be 'weighted' to produce a result in line with whatever result is desired by the commissioning organisation. The easiest way to do this is by simply distorting the make - up of the sample pool.
WikiLeaks have covered this and even published a handy guide 37-page poll-rigging guide on how to "include ethnic 'oversamples' as required" to manufacture the desired results.
With today's latest ABC / Washington Post poll, the real "smoking gun" of how polls are manipulated to manipulate votes is revealed as the pollsters admit that the collapse of the apparent Clinton lead is "not mainly about people shifting in their voting intention" but about how their sample pool was constructed.
"Changes in the poll’s latest four nights (due to a public outcry from people in online news sites who understand something of how polls work) compared with the previous four are not mainly about people shifting in their candidate preference, but about changes in who’s intending to vote." Those saying they were not likely to vote were being asked who they would vote for if they HAD to vote. Thus a (relatively) large number of Blacks and Hispanics who said they did not plan to vote and were unlikely to change their minds, were nudged to declare a preference for the Democrat candidate.So that's one you manufacture incredible results.
So why would allegedly respectable organisations like ABC / Wapo claim that the 10-point swing (in less than a week) was driven by changes in "who's intending to vote," but their own data shows just a 2-point swing in people who said they were "certain to vote" on 23 October, when the poll reflected a 12-point Hillary lead, and 27 October when the lead had collapsed to just 2 points. Are we really expected to believe that a 2-point swing in voter intentions somehow translated to a 10-point swing in the poll result? Something tells us it had a little more to do with excluding ethnic 'oversamples' after being caught cheating for the benefit of their favoured candidate."
So, now that ABC / Wapo have effectively declared their own poll utterly useless, the question is what were their motivations for skewing their polling data? Consider these points:
- Trump is simply experiencing a huge surge in momentum...seems odd to have this kind of surge on minimal news (remember the poll was taken prior to the recent FBI disclosures).
- ABC / Wapo pollsters got a slap on the wrist from the Hillary campaign for getting a bit overzealous on their manufactured 12-point "lead" which could have resulted in lower voter turnout for Hillary as supporters decided their vote was not needed.
- >ABC / Wapo reviewed early voting stats and realized their polls were in no way reflective of reality and decided they'd rather not lose ALL credibility (though may be too late for that).
So does this mean Trump has a better chance of winning than mainstream media are willing to admit? You may say that, we of course could not possibly comment.RELATED POSTS: Can this woman possibly be a fit and proper person to serve as President Of The USA The Difference In Voting For Hillbillary or Trump Is Only One Promises War With Russia Essential reading for our American readers who must soon decide who they want as their next president.

Whatever War Crimes Obama Accuses Russia Of You Can Bet America Has done It First.
World policitical leaders and media sycophants are lining up to condemn Russia for the dowing on Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 over Ukraine. Here are a few snippets from our coverage:
The downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 over Ukraine shocked the world. A second disaster for the airline within six months involving the same type of aircraft? Those things are probably coincidence, but when we start to dig a little deeper, the conincidences are quickly stretched to breaking point. So as the conspiracy theories start to emerge we look at the bizarre train of events leading up to the disaster.

So Who Are ISIS And What Is Really happening In Iraq
Up until a few short weeks ago ISIS, a group thought to consist of only a few thousand people led by a shadowy figurehead, was hardly mentioned in news bulletins.

Adolf Hitler, His Part In Our Downfall
FREE E-BOOK FOR .pdf & Kindle dowload
A thirty five thousand word book on the authoroitarian, undemocratic, bureaucratic dictatorship that is the European Union. Following the outburst of left wing hate politics following Boris Johnson's reminder that the EU has its roots in Hitler's Naziism, which as any intelligent person is aware is both true and very well documented. My blog colleagues and I decided to assemble this collection of our articles (with some long extracts quoted from public domain and creative commons sources) to help people misled by the REMAIN campaign into thinking the arguments are solely economic.
