When I attended college back in the late 1960's as a student of political science, one of the things I learned early was how political polls can be structured by make up of the sample. If Democrats are oversampled as we see to be commonplace in recent years, then it means They can also be easily used to sway response based upon the words used and how they are perceived and that allows campaign manipulation, plus the results only represent a specific moment of time which, of course, allows for huge variance over time. Pollsters are trained to manipulate them and the people don't normally pay much attention until election day nears and therein lies their fallacy. For if you notice year after year how the polls tighten up in the days leading up to the election, it is why accuracy isn't even a consideration until the last moments. Prior to that the polls are to build momentum and perception of what will happen, thereby allowing the public to believe the poll trends are real. And once convinced, the appearance that they represent truth not fiction becomes more likely. It's really nothing more than a game the politicians hope the public never understands. The press clearly wants to keep it that way.
So, what is my beef with polls so far this year and what do they signify? Well, with regard to what they say about who is leading right now, I would say they are probably correct. They have tightened up significantly and now are most in the range of a dead heat or with Biden slightly ahead. He should be based upon the bias of the media which only shows Trump in a bad light. With many potential voters not really paying much attention right now, of course the negative commentaries have an impact on the election but voters will start paying attention the closer election day gets. And remember, there are three debates, debates that should be feisty and therein I think lies Joe Biden's problem. I truly don't believe he can go head to head with the President for ninety minutes, or will he be able to keep his head screwed with the mental faculty difficulties he clearly shows.
But the real beef I have in regarding the evaluation of the underling support that each candidate receives from those who have addressed their views. For the only category that shows Donald Trump in the lead, is on the overall level of the economy which has been amazingly resilient despite Covid-19 and the unwillingness of Democratic Governors to fully open operations in their states. But in areas such as immigration, safety and security including the need for active police, and even Defense, those pollsters claim that Biden right now has a decided edge over Trump. Frankly, I don't believe it. It is Trump who has championed border security with tighter controls on those who try to enter our nation illegally. It is Trump who is actively standing for a border wall, police who are treated with respect while being required to operate within legitimate rules, it is Trump who supports law and order and the end of the burning and looting of cities as their Democratic mayors just silently watch, and it is Trump who has worked tirelessly to rebuild or military and give better support to our soldiers, sailors and airmen in carrying out their mission. What's more, and also in the purview of the military, it is Trump who has stopped the hollowing out of the military when Obama let it go to waste and it is Trump who support both the first and second amendment in order to return our nation to truth, not political correctness, maintain freedom of religion with a reliance on God. Only Trump has done all those things and so much more, while Biden has been hiding in his underground bunker safe room, trying to keep silent so the voters won't learn the truth about him and his party. But don't worry, folks, it will all come out and not even the media will be able to hide it. And Trump, number 45, the President of the United States, will be reelected President and guide our nation further along the path to Glory under God that she was founded to do in the first place. God bless America and let us all join together on November 3rd and return God to center stage as America votes to remain free.
