Busted! Crooked Media Plays With Polling Numbers To Pretend Georgia Is Hillary Country

Gateway Pundit ^ | 8/5/16 | Jim Hoft 

Another day – another blatant example of the media manipulating polls to discourage Trump voters.
Reuters was caught red-handed changing poll results to erase a Trump lead last week.
Now the Atlanta Journal Constitution does the same pretending that Hillary is going to win Georgia.
Polling firms contact registered voters. The number of voters who answer the phone and agree to the survey are put into a number called the “unweighted base.” The polling firm then applies their own “formula” based on who they think is going to vote. In the example below, 278 Republicans in Georgia answered the phone for a poll in May. The AJC’s polling firm thinks that’s too many Republicans, so they move that to 245, “adjusting” the numbers with an “average weighted response.” SNIP 2 1/2 months, later, the same polling firm substantially altered their “secret formula.”
Compare these two crosstabs. This is a link to the Aug 1-4 poll. Here is the poll by the same outfit back in May. The first number is the raw data. The second is the weighted sample. Talk about a giant leap! Snip The difference in the results is in the weighted average, which is the Atlanta Journal Constitution’s polling firm putting it’s thumb on the scale. To believe this poll is remotely true, you’d have to believe that hundreds of thousands of registered Republicans in Georgia plan to sit out the election entirely.

The event, attended by more than 1,500 journalists, discourages applause from journalists during speeches by political candidates. Before Clinton's appearance, conference staffers went around the room reminding people that it's inappropriate for journalists to give politicians standing ovations.
Republican nominee Donald Trump was also invited to attend, but declined.

Clinton's remarks included taking shots at her opponent.

Most young whites think Clinton knowingly broke law!

Associated Press ^ | Aug. 5, 2016 11:16 AM EDT | Emily Swanson 

Young Americans are divided over Hillary Clinton’s handling of her email account while she was secretary of state, with most young whites saying she intentionally broke the law and young people of color more likely to give Clinton the benefit of the doubt.
The new GenForward poll of young Americans ages 18-30 also finds both Clinton and Donald Trump viewed negatively by a majority of those polled.
GenForward is a survey by the Black Youth Project at the University of Chicago with the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research. The poll is designed to pay special attention to the voices of young adults of color, highlighting how race and ethnicity shape the opinions of a new generation. …

By Max Von Solow PG Farnsworth

“We have just completed our own poll since we cannot get factual information from the mainstream media!! we called 1000 homes in each of the 50 states and asked basic questions on the economy, terrorism, immigration and presidential pick.
Economy was the number one factor that Americans are concerned about and terrorism was number two.
Presidential pic was Trump by a large percentage
Trump 33478 votes 67% Clinton 9788 Votes 19% Undecided or other 6739 votes 13% My friends and I are all Graduate students from all walks of life we meet to discuss stuff 13 people who like and have served the military.
