One top pollster had a surprising confession about the 2020 election

Published

The polls in 2020 were wrong once again.

Pollsters vowed to correct their mistakes from 2016, but failed to do so.

And this top pollster had a surprising confession about the 2020 election.

Fivethirtyyeight.com’s Nate Silver is the most prominent “data journalist” in America.

Liberals revere Silver and treat his site’s probability forecasts about a politician’s chances of winning an election as an article of religious faith.

But the polls in 2020 were even more wrong than they were in 2016 and Americans believe pollsters misled them.

On a podcast, Silver defended his site and the polling, profanely declaring that they did a good job.

“If they’re coming after FiveThirtyEight, then the answer is f*** you, we did a good job!”Silver declared.

Silver claimed the only problem with the polling was that they blew the margins in several key states while correctly calling the winner in most states.

“On the one hand, you have the 2016 criticism, where maybe the polls were close but they were wrong directionally, and then in 2020 say, ‘Oh, well the polls, I mean they may have been the right call, except in one state, but the margins were off,’” Silver observed. “That’s the better criticism, but you have to pick one of those two. You can’t do both,” Silver added.

But there were significant misses.

Donald Trump won Florida by a convincing margin of over three points and Silver’s site gave Joe Biden a 69 percent chance of winning the state.

Silver also showed Joe Biden as a favorite to win North Carolina and Donald Trump appears on track for victory.

Fivethirtyeight.com also listed Ohio as a tossup state and Donald Trump ended up easily carrying the state by over eight points.

Political coverage nowadays revolves almost exclusively on polling and forecasters’ probability index to shape the state of the race.

The media spent months falsely claiming Donald Trump faced a blowout loss and framed their entire coverage of the campaign around the idea that the race showed a steady Joe Biden lead of about eight to ten points and the President’s prospects were hopeless.

Instead of covering the candidates and their issues, reporters focus on polls and take their cue from so-called “data journalists” like Silver who make uninformed guesses about the electorate and the electoral map based on faulty polling.

Donald Trump is about to make one 2024 announcement that will drive the media crazy

Published

In many ways, Donald Trump was the best thing that ever happened to the corporate-controlled media.

Reporters responded to Trump saving their jobs by declaring war.

And Donald Trump is about to make an announcement about 2024 that will send the media into a frenzy.

Robert Costa and Bob Woodward are on the media tour promoting their anti-Trump book Peril.

In an appearance on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Costa and Woodward discussed the possibility of Donald Trump running for President again in 2024.

Costa stated, “You start to hear a certain refrain . . . that he wants back, that he feels he has the political capital with his core supporters.”

Trump believes he still is the dominant figure in the GOP and Trump still believes he has the support to win.

“This is someone who wants back into the Presidency, and he believes the Republican Party is still very much in his grip,” Costa added. “Even though there are others out there with ambition like Vice President [Mike] Pence and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, it’s President Trump who really wants back, based on our reporting.”

That was fair reporting.

But then Woodward went off the deep end falsely claiming that Donald Trump had no agenda as President other than Donald Trump being the President.

“The answer is to be Donald Trump,” Woodward stated. “That is not an agenda. That does not connect to the needs of the people in the country. His disconnect from that, the struggle that people are engaged in, he has no idea.”

That was not true.

Trump cut taxes, slashed regulations, renegotiated NAFTA, became the first President to address China as a serious national security threat, built hundreds of miles of border wall, and put in place policies that stopped surges of illegal aliens from flooring into the country.

Woodward added “what did [Trump] do with the Presidency? Why were there so many people who held him in disdain? They would checkmate him because he would have very bad ideas, even bad ideas for him.”

But what Woodward described was a Deep State coup waged against Donald Trump because Donald Trump challenged the Washington, D.C. status quo on foreign wars always being good, open borders as the official policy of the United States, and that globalist trade deals that shipped American jobs overseas benefited the economy.

John Durham just dropped a bomb on Joe Biden that has him terrified for his future

Published

In 2019, John Durham was assigned to investigate the origins of the Russia hoax perpetuated by the Fake News Media.

Since then, people have been asking, “where’s Durham?”

But nobody is asking that anymore after he dropped a bomb on Joe Biden that has him terrified for his future.

The Russia collusion hoax was one of the worst political scandals in U.S. history.

It involved top Democrat figures, all connected to Hillary Clinton and the Obama White House in some way, colluding to create a fake scandal peddled by the Fake News Media as truth to try to take down a duly-elected President.

But the mainstream media has outright ignored Durham’s investigations into its origins, instead continuing to spread lies about President Trump allegedly colluding with Russia to get elected in 2016.

It is much easier for them to believe an insane conspiracy theory over the fact that the American people don’t trust them anymore.

But the reality is that the entire Russia collusion conspiracy theory was manufactured by Trump’s political enemies.

The thoroughly discredited Steele dossier, which birthed the Russia hoax, was funded by Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democrat Party.

One man at the center of this is cybersecurity lawyer Michael Sussmann, who now works for the prominent Democrat law firm Perkins Coie.

And just this week, Durham has told the Justice Department that he will ask a grand jury to indict Sussmann for allegedly lying to the FBI during the Russia collusion investigation.

Durham is reportedly requesting the indictment over a meeting between Sussmann and the FBI in 2016 when he claimed to not have been working on behalf of a client while raising suspicion about then-candidate Trump’s ties to Russia.

In reality, he was on the payroll of Hillary Clinton’s Presidential campaign.

It seems like a slam-dunk, but with Joe Biden in office, he will certainly try to get out of it.

Sussmann is already claiming he committed no crime through his lawyers.

“Mr. Sussmann has committed no crime,” Sussmann’s lawyers, Sean M. Berkowitz and Michael S. Bosworth of Latham & Watkins told The New York Times. “Any prosecution here would be baseless, unprecedented and an unwarranted deviation from the apolitical and principled way in which the Department of Justice is supposed to do its work. We are confident that if Mr. Sussmann is charged, he will prevail at trial and vindicate his good name.”

Lying to the FBI is a crime Democrats generally use to target conservatives, like General Michael Flynn.

Now that tactic is coming back to bite them.

Donald Trump met with Ashli Babbitt’s mom and this MSNBC host went ballistic

Published

Air Force veteran Ashli Babbitt was the only person killed as a direct result of the events of January 6.

To this day, no one knows the identity of the police officer who shot her.

And now Donald Trump met with Ashli Babbitt’s mom, and this MSNBC host went ballistic.

Former President Trump released a statement announcing he met with the family of Ashli Babbitt and that everyone knows the name of who shot her, and that if a police officer shot a Black Lives Matter supporter during a riot cities across America would burn.

Trump’s statement incensed MSNBC’s Nicole Wallace who ranted that Trump meeting with the mother of a domestic terrorist should be grounds for expulsion from the Republican Party and American politics.

“Can you fathom an example of a politician of another party meeting with the mother of a domestic terrorist and the other party really just sort of shrugging it off? Where are we? I mean, where are we in our politics that the ex-president, inciting violent extremism, meets with the mother of, by your definition and by Officer Hodges, the mother of a terrorist, and everyone kind of shrugs it off?” Wallace exclaimed.

A Capitol Hill Police Officer shot Babbitt in the neck and killed her as Babbitt crawled through a glass door in the Speaker’s lobby.

Babbitt was an unarmed woman.

If Babbitt was a Black Lives Matter supporter, there is little doubt that America would know the name of the officer that shot her.

Many Americans believe there cannot be a full accounting of the events of that day until the public knows who shot Ashli Babbitt.
