Dems Bash Biden’s “Landslide” Lead: “These Polls Are Not To Be Trusted”

1801

A few days ago, when President Trump was “triggering” the media with his comments about accepting foreign oppo research, the Hill highlighted this national poll from Quinnipiac showing Biden would win in a head-to-head matchup against the president by the “landslide” margin of 53% to 40%.

Unsurprisingly, Twitter immediately pointed out that this was exactly what the pollster geniuses said about Hillary Clinton. And like Clinton, Biden’s main selling point is that he’s “popular” and “experienced.” Polls are a major factor in this. If Biden’s supporters become disabused of the  notion that he’s ‘the only one who can beat Trump’, the former vice president could very well lose his grip on the 2020 nomination.

But this time around, even other Democrats are whining about the polls, according to the Hill.

“These same geniuses all predicted that Hillary Clinton was unstoppable and inevitable,” said Chris Kofinis, a Democratic pollster.

Another pollster said any Democrat who believes that Biden is ahead by a landslide is “doomed to repeat” the mistakes of 2016.

While Trump argues the polls undersell his support, some Democrats say surveys showing Biden well ahead of the Democratic field are not to be trusted.

Both sides think a close race in 2020 is likely and that surveys showing Biden and other Democrats with huge leads aren’t likely to reflect Election Day’s reality.

“Anyone who believes that the Democratic candidate is headed for a landslide victory right now is doomed to repeat the tragic history of 2016,” Kofinis said. “It’s a fundamental mistake for anyone to believe that reality can be projected or predicted based on these polls this far out from the general election.”

But here’s another thing to consider: The poll showed 77% of respondents describing their personal financial situation as at least “good.” Employment is high and inflation is low, but still, American consumers are facing unsustainable debt burdens, have little, or no, savings and in what’s probably the most obvious indicator that young people are feeling increasingly financially unmoored.

And 77 percent said their own personal financial situation is “excellent” or “good,” which is close to the all-time high of 78 percent recorded in April of 2018.

It could be that registered voters (the poll’s sample group) tend to be more affluent than the general population. And it may be that this complication is influencing the results – or maybe it’s not. But it’s certainly something to think about.

And anyone who doubts this should go back and read this post by a talented statistician. Once again, Democrats will repeat the phrase ‘Trump can’t possibly win’ to themselves until he does it.

  1. Sorry, I don’t believe that even stupid left wing Americans would vote for Biden. This guy has the intellect of a ground squirrel…which is much stupider than a tree squirrel. Biden is a walking disaster who accomplished NOTHING in his decades in D.C.

    • Joe Biden is far more intelligent and has far better judgement than Traitor Trump, who backs North Korea over our CIA, who thinks it is perfectly fine tor the Russians to subvert our election as long as it helps him, who has lied 7000 times in office, who has POed every friendly nation in the world, is intent on destroying our economy, and has cheated, defrauded and conned morons like you all his life. We have to get that treasonous asshole removed from office before he destroys the US. Apparently you are too stupid to recognize what 200 million Americans now know about this con-man. Either that, or you are a Russian troll.

      • CIA is the single most inept in a panoply of inept organisations called a government. You have no idea how far removed the CIA is from actual competent intelligence operation. So, your whole post is nullified by this ignorance.

    • I TOTALLY AGREE. HE IS A DUFUS, MORON IN THE 1ST DEGREE. HE HAS TO READ EVERYTHING HE SAYS IN PUBLIC AND THEN MESSES UP. JUST A STUPID MAN WITH NO ACCOMPLISHMENTS AND CHANGES HIS MIND WHEN THE WIND BLOWS. I HAVE NOT SEE ONE DEM THAT WOULD BEAT TRUMP. THEY ARE ALL NUTS WITH OPEN BORDERS AND EVERYTHING FREE. THEY DO NOT CARE A THING ABOUT US CITIZENS, JUST ILLEGALS. THEY WILL NOT EVEN FUND THE BORDER FOR FOOD FOR THE KIDS THERE AND THEN TRY AND BLAME TRUMP. THEY ALL NEED TO GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • Hallelujah I fully agree with you. These dems wont stop their insanity till they ruin this country completely. Look at my state CA and what they did here. Used to be a great state now it is filth and a haven for criminal illegals at the cost of the American tax payer. I just got the costs of illegals from Jan to today June 15th it has cost the tax payer $124,140,494,848 billions. Not millions but billions. Newsome the nut job governor just gave free healthcare to illegal aliens. Google the homeless messes i our CA cities it is disgusting, Thyphus has broken out now along with many other deadly diseases. These people that come in to our country are to blame for all this crap. By the way the constant claim that there are 11 million illegals here is a joke. The real number reporter is also 27 million. But I do guess it is at least over 50 million. How can we even know when we have no way to count them. Daily they are sneaking in that we can’t even catch. The American people are so used it is disgusting. These illegals break our laws coming here and than breaking every law while they are here. When if ever will the American people stand up and rebel against this democratic abuse.

  2. You do not have to be smart or have common sense to win the presidency. There are several examples of this. Trump is turning off many voters who supported him. He has harmed the farmers, the tarif increases will have to be paid by American consumers, his mean comments on other GOP members, failed policy initiatives, contradicting his own intelligence agencies are not going to win him support. He is his own worst enemy. Biden is far from being a rocket scientist and has made some dumb comments but might be trusted more by the public than Trump. Trump has made some good policies but they get forgotten in the pitch of election fever.

  3. Your comment is crazy. Trump has accomplished much in spite of your insane parties obstructing every step of the way. How do you think deals are being made?? The farmers are being compensated in the mean time. Would you rather have these leeches of countries constantly causes us a deficit in our trade policies. It costs the tax payers also. People like you think you know what it takes to make better deals. Well smarty pants go do it. Why aren’t you glad we finally have somebody in the White House that actually thinks about America instead of other countries first. He got the cheating UN members contribute more instead of us carrying most of the cost. I guess your such a globalists you want us to support all these countries. Germany a wealthy country that we rebuilt up after the war and yet they are still not paying their fair share of the UN. They even make deals with Russia for the oil and we pay for their security from Russia who we all know are aggressors. Are you DEMS all nuts?? Go ahead and vote for your nut job Democrats and see what happens to this country. Look at the cities in California where I live and it has been turned into a sewer by the many decades of democratic leadership. It’s not really leadership because it only benefits illegals which is helping to keep your crazy dems in power. Go ahead and love your insane party and you can support all of these law breakers. Liberalism is nothing but a disease. Hope you like living like Venezuela when the dems are through with this country. You dumb people actually don’t deserve to live here you should have to live in a third world country since that seems to be your dream. I am sick of you and your party.

  4. Let the left believe it! The more that believe it the less that will vote and that is a blessing to this country. We have a big enough problem with the morons in DC and don’t need more morons trying to keep them there.

  5. Former connections from the Obama days. This is to make him look stronger in the Democratic primaries. Biden’s chances of beating Trump are very slim. There are more voters who previously voted Democratic, that will not vote Democrat in the 2020 election because the are waking up to the fact that Democrats of today aren’tPC3R the democrats of the 60’s.

  6. Biden has been at the tax payers trough for over 40 years. He is well known for very bad decisions, and flip flopping. He is out of energy and makes no appearances, or policy decisions, except open borders and anti Trump statements. He reads every statement, because his handlers write all for him, and even then he screws it up! He validates the clear meed for TERM LIMITS!

  7. Anything even remotely connected with those Communists posing as Democrats is impossible to believe. And Biden is one of them.

  8. Mr. Williams obviously you know nothing of the CIA there are the ones that brought you air America all the f****** cocaine that brings in from South America to support their dirty jobs that they do behind the president’s back and Congress is back
    So they can make the outcome of some coup in some foreign country that doesn’t even concern us their interest for what they can get out of them oh I forgot to mention all the guns and stuff that they sold our enemies all over the world for one reason or another so you keep relying on the CIA for information
    and I’ll see you or just like any of the others uninformed when they go to vote
