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.

The polls were correct. Hillary won the popular vote.

Trump can't do no wrong. That's her motto.

So the polls were not wrong.


Take a look at the state polling. Johnny, please be good Wink

It's not unusual for polls to tighten and change in the end?

Of course they aren't "focused" on silly polls Grin

Boy, Trump sure was focused on the election polls that had him ahead. Huh Roll Eyes

Currently the RCP average is within 1/10th of a point from where it was, when you were yapping about the polls last Sunday. The RCP national average has fluctuated between the high 30s, to just over 40 since the latter part of May. Not bragging about it, but fairly steady from the last time people here were making a fuss about it. Also as I've mentioned before, these numbers will probably stay in this range the entire term. This is regardless how well he might do in office.

But who's POTUS now?  He's not named hillary.  Seems that popularity does not a President make.  I thank God for that.

That's what I mean when I say that we shouldn't put our faith in polls.  Too many variables.  The big one for this thread is that it isn't the popular vote that elects our POTUS.  It's the electoral college.  It was the fifth time in our history that this discrepancy has happened.  Candidates beware.   Grin

Trump's RCP number went up almost a point since yesterday -- maybe he'll have more pow-wows with Chuck and Nancy...

I cant remember where I heard it. Some "black" guy was on the radio yelling about if more blacks had voted Hilleary would of won. 3 million less then when Obama ran. Or something like that. She would of got Penn and Illinois I guess Undecided
Personally it was much of left in those states fault. Not a racial thing. I imagine a lot less left voted of all races or wasted it on 3rd party

The RCP average was already going up before that meeting even took place.

He didn't say it wasn't going up.  He said that it "went up almost a point since yesterday".
