Campaign official: Barrage of negative Trump-Biden polls cooked, meant to discourage Trump voters

[Ed. – Yes, that’s been pretty obvious.  Most of us are old enough remember the last several election cycles, when Republican voters were also wildly underrepresented in poll conditions.  It’s a persistent pattern in the national tracking polls.  Run stupid polls, get stupid poll results.]

National polls on the 2020 presidential race are meant to “suppress the enthusiasm” of President Trump’s voters, Tim Murtaugh, director of communications for the Trump reelection campaign, said Saturday in an interview a hundred days from Election Day.

“They are trying to create a narrative, and these polls are designed — this is why they are released and published — they’re designed to create headlines, and they are actively trying to suppress the enthusiasm of President Trump’s voters,” Murtaugh told Sirius XM’s Breitbart News Saturday with host Breitbart News Political Editor Matthew Boyle. …

Murtaugh pointed to two recent CNN and Quinnipiac polls, which had a sample of only 24 percent who identified as Republicans. “Twenty-four percent — less than a quarter of the country. That compares to Republican turnout according to exit polls in both 2016 and 2018 of 33 percent, so they’re undersampling Republicans by 9 points in that poll,” he said.
