Trump Gaslights the Press On Air Force One With Phony Poll

I guess it wouldn’t be Donald Trump if he didn’t try to see if smoke and mirrors would work. After all, that’s all he is, is an illusionist and a fake, and artifice and deception are all he’s ever had to work with.

Those are some hefty figures, 18, 19 points. I went over to CBS and here’s what’s there:

In the final stretch of the campaign, we find three Southern battlegrounds that could still go either way. Our estimates show Joe Biden with just a two-point edge over President Trump in Florida, Biden up four points in North Carolina, and the contest even in Georgia.

Millions have already voted and many others say they’ve already decided. While early voters in each state told us they substantially favored Biden, those who have not yet voted heavily favor Mr. Trump, setting up a key turnout test running now through Election Day for both parties.

If you click the link, you’ll see a chart that addresses people who have already voted and people who intend to vote.

Now look at the numbers. Yes, Trump is leading amongst voters who haven’t voted yet and you knew that. He’s depending upon a big turnout on November 3. The factor that needs to be assessed here, is that already half the electorate in Florida and North Carolina have already voted, and 43% in Georgia — so Trump is talking about leading in a percentage of a percentage, i.e., the percentage of the electorate that has yet to vote in these states.

Point being, Trump wants the press to report these figures, as he gave it to them, and not put them in context. Nothing new there at all. It’s called clutching at straws.

Now here are a couple of other comments on Twitter which will warm your heart. This is from the Cook Report.

Having Texas in play at all is amazing. If anything is a sign of the times, Texas in play is it.

Eight more days.
