Polls are Underreporting Republicans – Trafalgar Group Senior Strategist Says

Polls routinely underreport republicans. This is only becoming more common.

Robert Cahaly is the founder and senior strategist and pollster of Trafalgar group. Cahaly told the Daily Wire that republican voters will be significantly underestimated in upcoming and current polls. Recently, the President of the United States branded Donald Trump’s supporters as “enemies of the state.” It’s a safe bet that many or most of them may not be wearing thier political affiliations on their sleeves.

People lose their jobs, lose access to social circles, and even face legal action when they speak freely about republican viewpoints. Even if they had completely pure intentions, it’s likely that pollsters will underestimate republican votes. Moreover, pollsters do not always have good intentions.

From the Daily Wire:

“These submerged voters aren’t answering polls, they aren’t putting stickers on their cars, or signs in their yard — they’re not even posting on social media,” Cahaly said. “They are underwater. They’re not saying a word to anybody until election day.”

Cahaly said voters shouldn’t trust polls in the coming weeks, considering many pollsters failed to accurately predict the last three elections by highly favoring Democrats and undercounting Republicans.

“Polls have two purposes,” he said. “They’re either to reflect the electorate, or they’re to affect the electorate — and too many of these media and university-based polls are designed to affect the electorate and are trying to create a false narrative quite often when there’s not one.”

With American skepticism of polling continually increasing due to false narratives forged by the pollsters, Cahaly said such groups have already begun to face the possibility of getting the next election cycle completely wrong again.

I remember when Rush used to dig into the metrics of polls and expose them for what they were. So I never believe them. I don’t know anybody who’s ever been contacted by one either.

There is only one reason they (liberals, democrats) hide until the election. They are cowards! I don’t care what your political affiliation, skin tone, creed, or sexual orientation, as long as you are and “act” like a human being. Just be smart about who you elect to office.
Dems say global warming is due to people. In part, correct. But think about what takes carbon dioxide and provides oxygen, what keeps the earth cool. The truth science to these questions? Trees and underground water which large (LARGE LEFTIST CAPITALIST CORPORATIONS) continue to clear cut/destroy and drain from the ground to sell in bottles leaving ice caps to melt away trying to replace what they’ve taken!
Who again are the CAPITALIST monsters???

You BET they are. There is so much trickery and deceit afoot via the telephone that telephonic media have become largely corrupted by robocalls and scamsters. Even with caller ID, most people are wise to avoid picking up on numbers they do not recognize.
