The Post-Ailes-Murdock Impact
Cooking the Books to Dampen Trump Enthusiasm
This week’s Fox Presidential Poll was disturbing as it showed a significant gain by Hillary over Trump. BUT, when you look at the 64 pages of the “internals” of the poll, you quickly see that the poll was deliberately manipulated!
The preference or “how would you vote today” section showed that on 10/16, Hillary cornered 48.5% of the respondents while Trump was down to 40.0%! One month ago, 9/16, the poll was virtually deadlocked with only a half a percent difference. Hillary came in at 45.5% and Trump was on her pumps at 45.0% which is a virtual tie.
So, what happened? Was it the 11-year-old recording of Trump trash talking or was it something else. Why did 3,000 WikiLeaks emails have no impact on Hillary’s numbers? The answer is that the poll was cooked!
How? Just poll a higher percentage of Democrats versus Republican registered and likely voters. The chart below shows the sampling breakdowns for both 10/16 and 9/16 for both Democrat and Republicans. Fox increased the percentage of Democrats from 40% on 9/16 to 44.5% on 10/16. This is an increase of 4.5% more Democrats that were included in the poll. But, it is worse! Republican voters comprised 37.5% on 9/16 but were reduced to 35.5% on 10/16! This is a decrease of 2.5% of Republican respondents.
When you add the increase in Democrats with the decrease in Republicans between 9/16 and 10/16, you will find that the 10/16 poll sampled 6.5% more Democrats in the current poll! In the 9/16 poll, the difference between Democrats and Republicans was on 2.5%. In the current poll this difference was increased to 9.0%.
Why would Fox Do This?
First of all, have you heard ANY Fox anchor, analyst, reporter or janitor even hint that the internals of the polling were changed? NOPE!
So, when Fox News has been leaning slightly more towards Trump the Hillary, why would they join with the left and cook the polls to show Trump declining in order to discourage Trump supporters? Trace the attitudes at Fox to the departure of Roger Ailes and the take back by Globalist Rupert Murdock and his sons of Fox News that is owned by Murdock’s parent company News Corp.
Murdock is an open border, “Free Trade” proponent, globalist who strongly disagrees with Trump’s policies regarding immigration, border security, trade, and many others. Murdock, Fox, now is subtly, or not, moving Fox towards an Anti-Trump atmosphere. Murdock is fighting Sean Hannity, Lou Dobbs and others who openly support Trump. The Murdock boys even have come out and said that the anti-Trump pin-up host Megyn Kelly is the future of Fox.
So, you really need to begin to filter what you are hearing on Fox like you do with CNN and other MSM outlets. The message may not be overtly anti-Trump, but the innuendo will lead to a pro-Hillary conclusion. From now until the week before the election, do not get discouraged with polls that show Trump down.
Keep pushing, campaigning and exposing the utter gutter corruption of the Clintons
or we will lose the White House, the Supreme Court,
and our Constitutional freedoms and rights.
