New Poll Puts Mayor of Cormorant, Minnesota Ahead of Hillary and Trump
For goodness sakes, people–ignore the rigged polls and vote for the candidate you believe in.
A new national poll has found that 54% of potential voters favor the mayor of Cormorant, Minnesota over either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump. The poll surveyed a spectrum of potential voters and has a statistical margin of error of -3/+3%.
Here is the mayor of Cormorant, Minnesota: Duke, a nine-year-old Great Pyrenees. Duke has been re-elected twice, most recently at the end of August. (source: Zero Hedge)
The point being made here is polling is easily gamed. First, pick your goal: you want the poll to find Duke is favored above Hillary and Trump.
Next, select groups that are likely to vote in line with your goal. For example, start with subscribers to the Bark, Dog Fancy and other dog-owner magazines.
Then select leading questions:
1. If you could select a candidate other than Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump, would you do so?
2. Would you be willing to take a chance on an elected official from small-town America, despite his/her lack of national experience?
3. Given that more Americans believe in BigFoot than believe the mainstream media is fair and accurate, are you open to an “outsider” candidate for the presidency?
4. Given the choice between the twice-re-elected mayor of Cormorant, Minnesota, and either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump, who would you likely vote for?
