Trump Is Correct: CNN’s Latest Immigration Poll Includes Yet Another Aggressive “Oversample”

In a mini tweet storm released earlier this morning, President Trump blasted the “negative polls” of “fake news” outlets “CNN, ABC and NBC” after a couple of polls from the weekend seemingly revealed that the American people largely opposed his executive order on immigration.

Any negative polls are fake news, just like the CNN, ABC, NBC polls in the election. Sorry, people want border security and extreme vetting.

    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it. Some FAKE NEWS media, in order to marginalize, lies!

So, Zerohedge decided to take a look at the latest such poll from CNN and “shockingly” found that Trump has a point.  For some reason, CNN/ORC just can’t seem to conduct an honest poll where the distribution of respondents mirrors the actual distribution of registered voters in the U.S.  In the latest “oversample” farce, CNN decided that filling it’s poll with Democrats was becoming way too obvious (even school children are starting to catch on) and, as such, just decided that 45% of registered voters are suddenly independent.  From the polling methodology:

A total of 1,002 adults were interviewed by telephone nationwide by live interviewers calling both landline and cell phones. Among the entire sample, 29% described themselves as Democrats, 25% described themselves as Republicans, and 45% described themselves as independents or members of another party.

Of course, as we’ve pointed out multiple times, actual voter registration numbers are no where near CNN/ORC’s latest distribution:

So CNN was able to engineer its desired result with 53% of their respondents saying they oppose Trump’s travel ban.

This is not the way the watchdog media is supposed to work.  Normally, politicians tells lies and the media sets the record straight with unbiased reporting of the facts.  Now we have it working almost in reverse.  The media is determined to destroy what little credibility they have left.

Meanwhile, 55% of the respondents in CNN’s “rigged poll” seem to view Trump’s immigration executive order as a “Muslim ban.”

Of course, as we’ve noted before, only 12.5% of the world’s Muslims live in the seven countries on Trump’s immigration ban list…

But those are just facts so who cares?

I hope we have once again reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: as government expands, liberty contracts. — Ronald Reagan
