ABC News poll: Clinton leads Trump 50-38
ABC News ^

Posted on 10/23/2016, 8:29:55 AM by GregBo

Hillary Clinton has vaulted to a double-digit advantage in the inaugural ABC News 2016 election tracking poll, boosted by broad disapproval of Donald Trump on two controversial issues: His treatment of women and his reluctance to endorse the election’s legitimacy.


I need to confirm the sampling for this poll, but I do not believe for a minute that this is anywhere near accurate.

And this is the thanks the poster gets for passing on the news (and doubting it personally)

Well, why the HELL didn’t you “check the veracity” BEFORE you posted it? TROLL.

You are a Never Trumper, right?

Or, maybe a Hillary paid activist?

Why the hell would a poll from one of these news agencies sworn to defeat Trump have a “reliable” poll?

Get lost and take your damn phony poll with you. Just joined a few days ago. PHONY!

The OP replies :
You are wrong. I am a Trump supporter and I don’t believe any of the MSM polls. I posted several polls on FR since I joined. Do you always get angry and jump to conclusions?

Read his other posts. He does not seem like a troll. 

People here need to knock it off with the troll stuff and pull their heads out of the sand.

Donald Trump, the only candidate I’ve ever sent money to, and I’ve now sent him money on multiple occasions, is losing bigly. I will stand in line however long it takes to cast my vote for Trump/Pence here in the swing state of Florida but it will be for naught. Trump will be defeated. Fifty years of allowing the Democrats to import voters from the Third World is not without consequences.

People think this is the same country that elected Reagan twice. It isn’t. That country is gone. It’s now the same country that elected Obama twice.

Trump will do better than polling indicates but it won’t be enough. This hidden “monster vote” is the stuff of legend, 2016’s version of the “unskewed polls” nonsense we were buying last time around.

It will take divine intervention to put Trump in the White House.

Clinton Vaults to a Double-Digit Lead, Boosted by Broad Disapproval of Trump (POLL) ^

Clinton Vaults to a Double-Digit Lead, Boosted by Broad Disapproval of Trump (POLL)

This ABC News poll was conducted by landline and cellular telephone Oct. 20-22, 2016, in English and Spanish, among a random national sample of 874 likely voters. Results have a margin of sampling error of 3.5 points, including the design effect. Partisan divisions are 36-27-31 percent, Democrats-Republicans-independents.


According to Real Clear Politics the results of this poll was 50% for Clinton and 38% Trump. I did not see these data on the article sited above.Watching the morning political shows they were ALL attacking Trump full blast. FOX, CNN, NBC, CBS, ABC. One could see and smell the panic.

So – reporting of national poll results is now “attacking”?
To: DOC44


This is a contrived poll intended to demoralize . It is helpful is (sic) telling hillary idiotd (sic) ,”no need to vote”. the reality is that Trump people tend to tell pollsters to go the hell.

Well, at least they weren’t told to go A hell.

I tell them that I will answer for $10 paid in advance. Then I remind them that if they are making money for my data , why should I give it way? Never answer these polls. You are marked in data bases and sold like cattle for everything from advertisers to Isis murderers. STOP the polls as a public nuisance.

STOP your posts as a public embarrassment.

Take your bitter #NeverTrump garbage and shove it.Regardless of the wet dreams of Ted Cruz fanboys, he was not a viable national candidate. Cruz had zero chance of making the demographic inroads critical to being competitive. The results in his “stronghold” (the South) bore that out quite convincingly.

In case you haven’t noticed, the Republican “base” is insufficient to winning national elections.

The Revolution is ON!

Vote Trump!

And so on and so on – for 100+ replies – “I don’t believe it”  “impossible”  “troll”, etc.
Mostly, anyway …
To: eekitsagreek


I hope you and others dismissing these polls are right. I recall a similar dismissal of the polls in 2012, and they ended up being totally accurate.

The Morning After: What All Newspapers Are Leading With After Last Night’s Debate
The Morning After: What All Newspapers Are Leading With After Last Night’s Debate
ZeroHedge ^ | October 20, 2016
Posted on ‎10‎/‎20‎/‎2016‎ ‎6‎:‎34‎:‎12‎ ‎AM by Zakeet

Ultimately last night’s third and final presidential debate boiled down to just one brief exchange between Donald Trump and Chris Wallace, the one which all newspapers are leading with today: “What I’m saying, I will tell you at the time,” he told moderator Chris Wallace when asked if he would honor the results of the election. “I will keep you in suspense.” According to the WSJ, that response was “unprecedented and will be the answer for which this debate will be remembered.”

Sure enough:

As AP lead with a story that will be carried across much of America’s newspaper this morning:

Threatening to upend a fundamental pillar of American democracy, Donald Trump refused to say Wednesday night that he will accept the results of next month’s election if he loses to Hillary Clinton. The Democratic nominee declared Trump’s resistance “horrifying.”Trump’s assertions raise the prospect that millions of his supporters may not accept the results on Nov. 8 if he loses, thrusting the nation into uncharted territory. Free and fair elections, with the vanquished peacefully stepping aside for the victor, have been the underpinning of America’s democratic tradition since the country’s founding 240 years ago.

While Trump carried himself well, and according to most commentators delivered a far better debate than his previous two appearances against Hillary, being constantly on the attack and managing to integrate the Wikileaks releases as part of his remarks, for the mainstream press just one thing mattered:

Donald Trump’s refusal to say that he will accept the presidential election’s outcome overshadowed all else during his third debate with Hillary Clinton, in Las Vegas on Wednesday evening.

While Trump’s phrasing could have been better, and perhaps he was inspired by the recent revelations of vote rigging, brutally no one in the political world argued that the GOP nominee would benefit from the move. Trump’s remarks, he told moderator Chris Wallace, “I will look at it at the time” and “I will keep you in suspense”, stood in sharp contrast to recent comments from his running mate, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, and even his daughter Ivanka.

Perhaps he could have phrased it better, referring to the infamous 2000 recount of Florida votes, and Al Gore dissatisfaction with the initial outcome of that election, or even noted that “under extraordinary circumstances I may reassess”, but he did not do that, and instead did what Trump is best known for doing: going a response not couched in political rhetoric.

His stance sent shockwaves through the Republican Party, where criticism of Trump was already running high. Sen. Jeff Flake quickly tweeted that Trump’s position was “beyond the pale” while Sen. Lindsey Graham released a statement asserting that Trump was “doing the party and our country a great disservice by continuing to suggest the outcome of this election is out of his hands and ‘rigged’ against him.”

Even Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway tried to find an escape route from the position her candidate had enunciated, telling CNN moments after the debate ended that “Donald Trump will accept the results of the election because he will win the election.”

This isn’t at ALL what you guys were saying would be the lede  the next day, is it?



The media got their daily marching orders from the Politburo.

Hillary said the Russians are interfering with the election.

Isn’t that what the comment above just said?

Trump would be a fool to “just accept” a loss on Nov. 8. There needs to be an investigation to determine whether or not the Russians actually do change the results before any candidate concedes.

Trump should have said that if there are questions of voter fraud, he will treat the results as Al Gore did.

The Dems and MSM are crazy scared about what O’Keefe hasn’t released yet.

And Trump/Pence have to have been briefed by O’Keefe of what’s coming.

Nobody but you nincompoops know or care who O’Queef is, unless it’s that crazy guy who got arrested for trying to sneak into a Senator’s office, and ended up at his parent’s house with an court-mandated ankle bracelet.
James O'Keefe
I suppose that there are a few who vaguely remember him as the guy in the rubber Bin Laden mask, but probably not many.
I can’t even look at that last one without giggling.
See you good people next Monday.

One thought on “Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – poll position edition

  1. “People think this is the same country that elected Reagan twice. It isn’t. That country is gone. It’s now the same country that elected Obama twice.”

    He’s welcome to self-deport to some more Alt-right-congenial country, perhaps the sliver of separatist Ukraine would suit best.
