Let me ask you, were not many of the MSM predicting her victory just the day before?  This is not ancient history.  I remember a ton of stations predicting her the victor before the votes had even started.

Seawolf, I know and remember along with millions of us predicting that. Im just talking about polls. I think the polls were going by popular vote, which she did win. But popular vote doesn't mean shit in the election. In this case the polls were correct. She won popular vote.

The flaw of polling by those who do it was blatantly obvious.  When you have stories about how did we get it wrong I just can not put much faith in them.  Afterall, grass growing is more interesting then what a bunch of people think who will win or whether or not they approve of Trump...  Anyway, thanks for the conversation.

The polls are as a skewed as the "news" reported by the mainstream corrupt "News" CORPORATIONS. 

Dwight Eisenhower warned America in his farewell address of the danger of the "military - industrial complex" and the corrupting influence of such corporations on our government.  The corrupt influence of Media Corporations and the pay to play influence of crony capitalism and globalist's interests over those of the America people, is an even greater threat to our Constitutional Republic, than the military industrrial complex which still exists.

Politics drives the message and this is not simply "reporting the news" or sampling opinions and presenting the results of such polls to the public in an objective, non biased manner.

Academia, too,  has become a conglomerate of Billion Dollar Corporations with a vested interest in maintaining a certain political course in Washington (which continues the gravy train of Federal Dollars which fattens their wallets)

Not till just before the election.  Understand some here knew the polls were flawed just by looking at the rallies.



No, rallies had nothing to do with it.

You do know Clinton won the popular vote by 3 million right?

The popular vote polls were correct. Which are more in line with how approval rating polls are also conducted [They aren't separated by electoral votes]. Trump has been averaging in the 30s for his approval for most of his term. His best case scenarios are low 40s. Definitely something they are looking at [Thus the supposed donation he is going to make and kissing babies while serving food].  Roll Eyes

How the polls, including ours, missed Trump's victory
November 9, 2016 / 5:37 PM / 10 months ago
http://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-election-polls/how-the-polls-including-our...

Sad how little we tend to remember just a few months ago.  The CNN Article had Hillary winning on the 8th of Nov.  So again, polls suck.



WRONG!!!!


Did you not pay attention to the LATimes/USC track poll  . Admin sure did. He posted it every chance he got Wink. Right Admin? Grin

And of course sea wolf, you must not know it's a 'State race'

And of course it's all there in Black and white , here in Nov 6 and 7th Real clear politics average state polls Wink

Trump ahead in Florida, Ohio, Mich and Penn

Scroll down a little Wink

Polls can be manipulated by the decisions of whom you ask and how the questions are phrased.  It's as simple as that.  Also, some people lie on polls, mostly for the fun of it.   
Situations can change at the drop of a hat or a pin.  Too many variables for any poll to take them seriously over the long haul.  Donald Trump knows that.  It seems that other politicians and/or political pundits, anchors, reporters don't.
