Polling

Pro-Clinton SuperPAC Pays For a Poll to Show Her Winning The Debate

In what can only be viewed as a desperate move to try to sway public opinion online after the second debate, which show Bernie Sanders ahead 50-60 percentage points in every poll between here and Neptune, Team Clinton hired a pollster to drop something immediately after the event ended.

Of course that poll has her ahead 67% to 20% for Sanders – you can laugh at it HERE

Now to be clear, many politicians hire pollsters to conduct polls to sometimes see where there strengths and their weaknesses are, even Bernie has hired a pollster. So that much isn’t exactly news. But what is odd about this one is the disclosure that Correct The Record a Hillary Clinton SuperPAC paid for the poll and they are trying to pass it off as an accurate accounting of what happened on the debate stage on November 14, 2015 at Drake University.

Based on what we’re seeing online, a huge amount of people are finally beginning to understand how the pollsters come up with their data. People are waking up to the fact that the numbers can be swayed heavily based on who is participating in the polls. This particular polling company Public Policy Polling has a history of using a lot of landline phones and for the polls on the Democratic side, they call people that are normally dyed-in-the-wool Democrats. And as we know, those people are not  where most of Bernie’s support comes from. Below is a screen shot of the poll. Gotta warn you though: This one is laughable.

Correct The Record

See that name at the bottom of the poll? Correct The Record? In their own words this is why they exist: Correct The Record is a strategic research and rapid response team designed to defend Hillary Clinton from baseless attacks.

So this new after debate poll was in response to an attack on Clinton? An attack by whom? An informed American people that have had it up to here with business as usual?

No, what it actual is, is a desperate move by a camp that is feeling the heat from Bernie Sanders and his massive army of supporters thirsting for a political revolution.

    I am reposting this everywhere. What the F? How desperate is she getting? This has GOT to get out, she should just drop out now, she should be embarrassed as hell. Thanks Huffington Post for printing REAL results. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/brian-hanley/bernie-sanders-sweeps-onl_b_8567084.html

    Not sure I’d jump to “pays for poll to show her winning” as much as “likely polled from people who were more likely to support Hillary than a sample that reflects the populace well”

    either way, shitty poll.

  3. Julian Alexander

    Bullshit poll.

    The American people are not stupid, nor naive to see polls like this to be dishonest. Sad to even think, they think we are this stupid. Wake up Super Pacs aka Hillary Clinton. The American people are starting to…by Nov 2016, I place a bet that the American people will finally be wide awake!! Finally.

    far more telling is the ‘pre-screened’ respondents

  6. Linda Marshall

    Hillary looked very nice tonight, She looked frustrated and disgruntled. She seemed like a fish out of water. Not a real good performance for her.

  7. Jackie

    Please show the bots Hilary had in twitter to move her name around. I have screenshots of the bots.. was ridiculous.

  8. Darice McGuire

    It just goes to show you Hillary is not to be trusted. Her need to cheat or skew the numbers shows me she is not Presidential material. Bernie won the debate hands down!

    Came across this earlier today from an astute statistician:

    PPP interviewed 510 Democratic primary voters nationally by telephone after the debate
    who had been pre-screened on Thursday and Friday as planning to watch the debate and
    willing to give their opinions about it afterward. The survey’s margin of error is +/-4.3%.
    The post debate poll method

    Q11 If you are 18 to 45 years old, press 1. If 46 to
    65, press 2. If older than 65, press 3.
    18 to 45 19% …………………………………………………..
    46 to 65 47% …………………………………………………..
    Older than 65 34%

    There is no information on the questions asked on Thursday and Friday to “Pre-Screen” voters

    Also the Poll was paid for by Correct the Record
    Says right there they are About Defending Hillary Clinton
    http://correctrecord.org/about/

    Heres the problem when you look at the what the real numbers on Iowa’s 2015 Population
    http://factfinder.census.gov/…/pages/productview.xhtml…

    A little over 30% of he population is between 47-65 yrs old

    And the 65+ range is HUGELY INFLATED
    in reality less than 20% of Iowians are older than 65

    And it is hard to estimate they put 15-19 yr olds in the same column, but looking at 20-44 yr olds they are over 30% of the population in Iowa.

    So what You Can take away from this PPP Poll, is it over estimates the 45-65 yr old crowd (probably the group with more clinton loyalists im betting) by about +15%
    The +65 group by +16%
    And the 18-45yr olds by -11% or more.
    Then they say their margin of error is +/-4%.
    Yeh no this is wildly distorted for Iowas own population.

    _Conclusion_
    *This Poll Is Bullshit*

    The above asks, “An attack by WHOM”? An attack by all the Bernie supporters who attempt to claim that their flooding the online poll results is an indication that Mr. Sanders actually “WON” the debate! During the first debate, Sanders supporters were instructed to “flood the online polls” and to begin doing so even “before the end of the debate”! Apparently it is acceptable to the Sanders campaign to rig the online polls to show a specific “end result”, but they want to cry FOUL if it is suggested that the Hillary campaign fight back with an actual poll of their OWN? Not surprised by this at all. Mr. Sanders campaign has been one of sheer hypocrisy from the very beginning. When he CLAIMED he was running as an actual “Democrat”! http://www.dailynewsbin.com/opinion/bernie-sanders-fans-rig-online-debate-polls-then-complain-when-no-one-takes-it-seriously/22827/

    67% of Hillary supporters think Clinton won the debate, to 20% for Sanders and 7% for O’Malley.

    Some telling satire…

    Hillary: First Woman President Worth Death of Middle Class
    http://www.theniladmirari.com/2015/11/democrat-hillary-clinton-says-americas-first-woman-president-is-worth-the-death-of-the-american-middle-class.html

    WASHINGTON (The Nil Admirari) – Today, Democratic presidential candidate and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told Americans electing the United States’ first female president was worth the final collapse and permanent extinction of the American middle class. Clinton urged Americans to not be sexist, and to vote for her instead of trying to prevent both their standard of living and wages from continuing their free fall courtesy of the very people bankrolling her presidential campaign.

    And…

    Clinton added, “It is painfully clear to me the biggest sexist in America is that horrible Bernie Sanders, who keeps focusing on issues like rising income inequality that a large majority of Americans are deeply concerned about. Seriously, Americans just need to drop their silly, sexist, and sentimental attachment to the middle class and vote for me.”

    Hillary opposes reinstating Glass-Steagall.
    Hillary’s Top Contributors: Morgan Stanley $636,564, Lehman Brothers $362,853, JPMorgan Chase $696,456, Goldman Sachs $760,740, Credit Suisse $318,120, Citigroup Inc $824,402
    She is supported and funded by the 5 Big Wall Street Banks.
    She is also funded by the Private Prison Industry.
    Her campaign manager comes straight from Monsanto ergo her refusal to demand GMO Labeling.
    First she was adamantly opposed to LGBT rights. Now she claims to be for it.
    She promoted Fracking Internationally while she was Secretary of State.
    She is also supported by the big Stock Brokerage Houses on Wall Street to include Goldman Sachs and all the others.
    She is personally invested in Keystone XL Pipeline but you go right ahead and believe she flipped. She’ll flip right back.
    She pushed for TPP 45 times and now supposedly flipped against it.
    Debbie Wasserman Schultz has rigged our primary to protect her from fair scrutiny against other candidates and she cares SO much about our party she sits there quietly and is allowing it to happen.
    Hillary Clinton has a very long history of being a Warmongering Hawk.
    She does not support a $15 minimum wage.
    Hillary Clinton has refused to give Americans the protections offered by re-establishing the Glass-Steagall Act.
    Hillary Clinton is FOR the Death Penalty and Prisons for Profit
    She has already come out against Free College Education.
    The ONLY choice any sane thinking person needs to make is between a Corporate sponsored candidate and an Honest man. Bernie is a man of Integrity who has fought for the Middle Class, Labor, Civil Rights and our Veterans his entire political career. He has a demonstrated, deep-seated, MORAL CONVICTION to do what is right by We the People!
    It’s about Bernie Sanders. An independent his entire time in the House and Senate as well as his time as mayor of Burlington, Vt., he’s not only not a Democrat, but also someone who has never taken corporate money. No super PACs, no secret donors writing checks for tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars, no free rides in corporate jets. But it goes beyond just the money. It’s the life he’s led; it’s about who he is. From a working-class Brooklyn family, in college he became active in the civil rights and anti-Vietnam war movements, then a small-town mayor, then the House and Senate.

    Yeah I read the article that that poll was listed in and it was paid for by a Super PAC of Hillarys. It said so in the article. It wasn’t even an online poll it was a landline poll of 500 people who were prescreened before the actual debate. #FeelTheBern

    It’s not just this poll that has it wrong. When we see national polling this far out from any actual voting, historically they fail to forecast the eventual nominee. The frontrunner this far out will almost always lose in the end. The reason for that? We are still in the name recognition phase, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump have the wide recognition.

    At this point in 2007, Clinton had the same national polling lead over Barak Obama that she has now with Sanders. Democrats like the underdogs. Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton and Obama ALL were underdogs early on.

    The poll number that never seems to change is Hillary’s unfavorable rating. She is distrusted by about 55% of Americans. She is just not going to become president with a number like that.

    And during the last debate she told a few whoppers about her Wall Street ties. People aren’t stupid, they know she was squirming on stage about the issue. Trying to tie the money to “her help” after 9/11 was a despicable lie. She had been taking donations from them BEFORE 9/11.

    That’s how Bernie will win. The trust factor.
