The Mainstream Media Pollsters Are Lying to You. Again.

It’s almost laughable, isn’t it? Every damn day we’re bombarded with oodles of polls declaring Creepy Uncle Joe as the 2020 Democratic front runner. I’ve seen “results” proclaiming Biden has as much as a 30+ point lead over Bernie Sanders. I’m sure you have, too.

This, of course, is complete horseshit. Logic dictates that a candidate who can’t even fill a high school gym with supporters won’t have better numbers than a candidate regularly drawing crowds in the tens of thousands. If you stop and think about it for 1/100th of a second, the truth of this statement becomes readily apparent.

You know, like it should’ve been readily apparent in 2016. Remember? when the mainstream media was assuring the country Hillary would soon be strutting around as President Pantsuit without even breaking an electoral sweat?

And a lot of people bought it.

Wake up America. They can, and they do.

Establishment Democrats want us to forget that just a few short years ago, they attempted this same tactic with another highly unpopular corporatist.

What was her name again?

So fall in line Vote Blue No Matter Who cultists.

Here’s all you need to know.

As much fun as it was to watch Hillsy denied her crown, it was also incredibly frightening to see how effective the combined propaganda efforts of the DNC and MSM really were. The proof is in the pudding — a Trump victory despite all the poll results assuring the CNN and MSNBC crowd that scenario was highly unlikely at best.

Can the DNC pull it off again with Biden?

Quite possible, but that’s where we come in. It’s important to let people know how skewered those polls are. A handful of landline-loving Boomers is hardly a fair representation of the average American voter. But again, this doesn’t cross the majority of people’s minds, so we need to inject common sense into the conversation.

And it also reveals just how afraid both are of a Progressive like Sanders taking the reins of power.

But most people simply aren’t aware of this crap.They have lives that don’t revolve around politics, those lucky, privileged bastards. These are folks who get their news from television and only skim the headlines of print and especially digital media.

They are the majority of the country and the voting pool.

Which, by the way, is a compelling reason to reign in the sharing of Biden-centric articles claiming he’s the front runner. Most people only read the titles stating Biden is winning this poll or that poll but don’t bother to read the actual content.

Let’s not do the establishment Dems any favors by spreading their propaganda.

We can sum up the assertions that Bernie supporters are migrating over to the Biden camp with one word — “puleeze.” A political science degree isn’t needed to deduce that Progressive Berners would not abandon Sanders for an out-of-touch corporate whore like Biden, ever.

That just isn’t happening, despite MSM’s claims to the contrary. Nor is Biden leading the pack. It’s a carefully crafted myth, same as with Hillary in 2016. And it’s our job to make sure everyone knows it.
