The media polls seem to be moving in a positive direction for Donald Trump, but that’s not the whole story. What’s really going on is the media smoothing out the methodology and assumptions while trying to remain relevant. Nothing more. Polls don’t swing 15+/- points every few weeks…. it just doesn’t happen.
As we have outlined for years, all “media polling” is fraught with the same ideological bias inherent in the publication and broadcasting of those media entities presenting their interpretation of their constructs. Nothing more.
Consider this visible contrast. The Tampa/St.Petersburg area is home to over 2 million Florida residents (largest metropolitan area on the West Coast of Florida).
Here is Hillary Clinton’s rally today in Tampa Florida, which was specifically held on USF campus because the venue ensured a captive student populous:
(Top two are venue as set up, and as supporters arrived) To be fair to candidate Hillary Clinton here’s the best picture we can find of the event capacity while she was speaking:
Approximately 500 students, teachers, union members and supporters attended. Considering how poor her last two months of campaign events were, this was actually a fair crowd amid a population nearing two million.
Now lets take a look at the last campaign rally by Donald Trump in the exact same area. Tampa / St. Pete:
Trump will carry Florida easily.
It won’t be close folks, it won’t even be close.
