    Rasmussen Poll Trump Leads Clinton by 2 Points Nationally - Is the Media Losing the Propaganda Wars?

    I'm feeling the news media, despite all the propaganda they're spewing about hilllary killary, is losing the war!
    The war being against democracy and for a socialistic cesspool. The average person sees through the lies by the media. Americans want a return to values of right and wrong. Scum like hillary killary and her pay to play schemes, her millions gotten from bribes, sucking of taxpayers her entire life.
    And it is a war - truth vs. propaganda. It is time to drain the swamp of scum we currently have in D.C.. Let's get rid of socialists like hillary killary!  Comment if you agree!

      For those of you who don't get the joke: RCP has been showing Clinton over the top in electoral votes for over a week now.

      "fascism did not rise in the 30's because it was so strong, but because democracy was so weak"--steve schmidt. so, who has been undermining our democracy? birthers, gvt haters, election deniers.....it is upon us.

    Stick to the RealClear averages and Inv. Biz Daily. Sabato has a great site too.

    Stay away from Rasmussen. Worst pollster in America.

      Great points. I follow Sabato and RealClear as well because they are objective, non-partisan and look at averages rather than individual polls.

    So, one poll showing Trump ahead by less than the margin of error is accurate, while all the polls showing Clinton ahead aren't? How does that work?

    (Also, the Rasmussen numbers posted this morning on Real Clear Politics show Clinton +1, not Trump. Still within the margin of error.)

    Wikileaks revelations prove her team paid off the second in command at the FBI the day they said "clean it up".

    The same day that Cheryl Mills told Podesta they needed to 'clean up' the email scandal, Hillary Surrogate Terry McCauliffe met with the FBI agent who oversaw the Clinton email case and his wife and promised financial support ($500,000+) if she ran for office.

    The TV stations giving Trump 90%+ negative coverage and not addressing Clinton's illegal actions are proof they are biased. What is worse is the social media bias that is now proven but also under-reported.

    I hate having to go to British sites for less biased reporting on American politics.

    Rasmussen is known for producing results very favorable to Republicans. It is quoted on Fox News all of the time and hired by Republican candidates quite often.

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the … mmon-poll/

    It badly over estimated the support for the last two Republican presidential candidates. Rather than winning, both lost.

    http://fivethirtyeight.blogs.nytimes.co … race/?_r=0

    It is so controversial and inaccurate that its founder just quit.

    I'm just curious -

    All of the people touting their polls/info that show Trump winning as 'real', are you going to admit that you were drawing from flawed sources if he loses?  Or are you just gathering (flawed) sources ahead of time so you have something to refer to when you complain that the election was rigged if Hillary wins?

      Flawed sources? The polls that have Trump ahead or close are the ones that have historically been accurate for the last 3 elections. The flawed polls are the media polls, if you knew anything about polls you'd know that.

    Hillary Clinton still maintains a slight advantage as support for the major third party candidates appears to be slipping away in Rasmussen Reports’ latest White House Watch survey.

    The new national telephone and online survey shows Clinton leading Republican Donald Trump 44% to 43% among Likely U.S. Voters. Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson earns a new low of four percent (4%) support, and Green Party nominee Jill Stein has fallen to one percent (1%). Three percent (3%) still like some other candidate, and five percent (5%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

    Clinton edged ahead yesterday 43% to 42%.

    With the latest bomb shell in the HRC campaign, that is reopening of FBI investigation this lead will only increase.  DNC and main media used very creative sampling techniques: sampling 13% more of registered Democrats, around 7% more of Independents, than Republicans.  Similar techniques were used in Britain before Brexit.  You know how that ended up.

    This late into campaign, the best poll is the look at the size of crowds both candidates attract.  Main street media constantly fudging the footage about these facts.  The win by Trump will be resounding blow to the media party of this election.  That is why they counting on voting fraud to get HRC elected
