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.

CNN lied about one important move the Trump administration made

Published

CNN has been spreading falsehoods about Donald Trump for four years.

They were one of the main purveyors of the Russiagate hoax.

Now CNN lied about one important move the Trump administration made.

In the waning days of Donald Trump’s presidency, he issued the “1776 Report,” a rebuke to the fraudulent history of the “1619 Project” presented by New York Times writer Nikole Hannah-Jones.

Historians Left, Right, and Center blasted the alternative history of the 1619 so much so that Hannah-Jones later admitted it wasn’t intended to be taken as entirely factual.

The “1776 Report” called for schools to teach history from an accurate point of view that acknowledged the good and bad as opposed to the “1619 Project,” which falsely argued that America was founded with slavery as a core tenet.

CNN was so frustrated by the non-woke interpretation of the “1776 Report,” they wrote the following headline: “Trump administration issues racist school curriculum report on MLK day.”

In the eyes of the Left, it’s “racist” to say that America was not founded as a slavocracy.

CNN wrote, “A commission stood up by President Donald Trump as a rebuttal to schools applying a more accurate history curriculum around slavery in the US issued its inflammatory report on Monday, Martin Luther King Jr. Day.”

This is laughable considering many historians have debunked the “1619 Project” up and down.

Also, it’s the Left who no longer believes in Martin Luther King’s vision of judging people by the content of their character.

CNN continued, “Trump announced that he was establishing the commission last fall, following a slew of Black Lives Matter demonstrations across the country. He blamed the school curriculum for violence that resulted from some of the protests, saying that ‘the left-wing rioting and mayhem are the direct result of decades of left-wing indoctrination in our schools.’”

Trump is completely correct about the rioting being an outgrowth of decades of far-left propaganda.

The leaders of Black Lives Matter described themselves as “trained Marxists.”

Two of the most assigned texts in college today are The Communist Manifesto by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, and A People’s History of the United States by socialist historian Howard Zinn.

College campuses have been overrun with radical Left thinking.

A survey at Harvard, for example, showed that 80% of faculty are liberal to very liberal, 19% are moderate, and only 1% are conservative.

Similar breakdowns can be found in most colleges in the country, and that has trickled down to K-12 education.

A top CNN host shocked everyone by admitting one truth about Donald Trump

Published

CNN attempted to boost its ratings by becoming the “Orange Man Bad” channel.

The network has an entire roster of reporters taking cheap shots at Donald Trump.

But a top CNN host shocked everyone by admitting one truth about Trump.

Every once in a while, a reporter on CNN will break ranks and tell the truth.

That’s what happened when host Fareed Zakaria made an admission about Trump and the Russians.

For four years, the Democrats and their allies in the Fake News Media have slandered Trump as compromised by the Russians; Congressman Eric Swalwell even called Trump a Russian agent.

But Zakaria admitted that the Trump administration had not been soft on Russia.

The host left viewers stunned when he said, “You know, the dirty little secret about the Trump administration was that while Donald Trump had clearly had a kind of soft spot for Putin, the Trump Administration was pretty tough on the Russians. They armed Ukraine, they armed the Poles. They extended NATO operations and exercises in ways that even the Obama Administration had not done.”

The actions of the Trump administration belie the narrative that Trump was under the thumb of Vladimir Putin.

The bogus narrative was all based on opposition research created at the behest of Hillary Clinton.

Russia fever didn’t truly begin until Clinton lost the election and needed a justification as to why. 

The Russiagate hoax was also used as a pretext for the outgoing Obama administration to spy on the Trump campaign.

It’s amazing how the Democrats suddenly became ultra-hawks on Russia when many within the party were conciliatory – and in some instances traitorous – in favor of the Soviet Union.

The country could’ve used this level of vigilance during the Cold War when actual communists were infiltrating the U.S. State Department.

Currently, bellicose relations with Russia spurred by the Democrats are a huge distraction from the greater threat of China.

Sadly, Zakaria’s admission comes too late.

The Democrat Media Complex spent four years whipping up the country into a frenzy about Russia.

MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow even suggested Putin could kill millions of Americans by shutting down the U.S. power grid in the middle of a cold snap.

Even after the two-year Mueller investigation turned up nothing, the Russia narrative persists.

Hopefully, more people on the Left will start to tell the truth.

Donald Trump saw something on CNN that he never thought would appear on their air

Fake news CNN waged an unrelenting four year war on Donald Trump.

But for one moment something changed.

And Donald Trump saw something on CNN that he never thought would appear on their air.

On Tuesday night, Donald Trump announced his opposition to a 2.3 Trillion dollar “America Last” spending package that sent hundreds of millions of dollars to foreign countries and shunted off a measly $600 check to American citizens.

The bill gave three times as much – up to $1,800 – to the families of illegal aliens.

President Trump threatened to veto the bill unless Congress upped the direct payments to American citizens to $2,000 and cut ridiculous spending like millions of dollars for gender study programs in Pakistan.

On CNN, host Michael Smerconish ignored the normal CNN anti-Trump line and praised the President.

Trump critics Anthony Scaramucci claimed the President came off like the Grinch who stole Christmas for tanking a supposed “relief” bill after Congress already agreed to the parameters.

But Smerconish instead argued that the President looked like the champion of the working man and woman.

“I think you’re underestimating the president,” Smerconish responded. “I don’t think the perception of him being the Grinch Who Stole Christmas is accurate. I think this is the arguably, politically speaking, the most effective thing he’s done since losing the election. The American people aren’t going to understand the difference between the covid relief bill and the omnibus spending bill.”

“He’s the champion of the working person. And he wants two grand in everybody’s pocket. I think it’s very effective for him,” Smerconish continued.

CNN usually defines balance as a Democrat and a Never-Trump Republican appearing on the air to criticize the President.

Rarely is there a friendly voice or a kind word for the President on fake news CNN programming.

But one for brief moment on CNN sanity and fairness prevailed.
