Media disinformation artists use obvious over sampling
(INTELLIHUB) — In the months leading up to the presidential election the American people were force feed a plethora of polls supposedly showing that Donald Trump had no chance of winning the election.
Obviously these polls were monumentally wrong and now the corporate media has released two new “polls” which claim to show that Trump is the least popular president in the last four decades.
An ABC/Washington Post poll as well as a CNN poll both claim to show Trump has low ratings in a variety of important metrics. The Washington Post even has an article published on the poll which can only be described as the literal definition of fake news. As ZeroHedge points out, both polls use some of the most “egregious” oversamples ever seen.
“Proving they still got it, ABC/Washington Post and CNN are out with a pair of polls on Trump’s favorability this morning that sport some of the most egregious “oversamples” we’ve seen. The ABC/Wapo poll showed an 8-point sampling margin for Democrats with only 23% of the results taken from Republicans…”
For their part, CNN also seemingly purposefully over sampled the respondents on their poll, a fact that is noted within the 55 page poll but ignored in the “news” articles about it.
A total of 1,000 adults were interviewed by telephone nationwide by live interviewers calling both landline and cell phones. Among the entire sample, 32% described themselves as Democrats, 24% described themselves as Republicans, and 44% described themselves as independents or members of another party.
Besides the fact that only 24% of the people polled were actually Republicans, it seems almost impossible that the 44% of the 1,000 people polled were independents.
Even more absurd, ABC is actually touting the supposed fact that 57% of Americans think Trump is being unfair to the corporate media, a claim that is absolute nonsense especially when you consider the actual approval rating held by the corrupt mainstream media.
This is yet again another instance of documented disinformation being spread by the likes of the Washington Post and CNN. The American people have absolutely no reason to trust ANY of the polls released by the anti-Trump mockingbird media no matter what they claim.
