Poll Released 36 Years Ago Today Had Reagan Down by 8… He Won in a Landslide


The liberal mainstream media uses polls in an attempt to sway voter opinion — and that’s exactly what they’re doing this year against GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump.

Fortunately, we have a great example of why we shouldn’t care about the polls: former President Ronald Reagan.

On Oct. 26, 1980 — 36 years ago to the day — Reagan was down by 8 points against then-President Jimmy Carter in a Gallup poll. Carter was up 47 to Reagan’s 39 with only two weeks left until the election, according to the Lubbock (Texas) Avalanche-Journal.

Yet two short weeks later, Reagan won in a landslide. Reagan won so big that Carter even conceded the election before California was counted.


The moral of the story, it ain’t over til it’s over — and it’s definitely not over yet. It wasn’t in 1980 and it isn’t today in 2016.

The mainstream media wants Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton to win, there’s no doubt about it. WikiLeaks released emails from the account of John Podesta, Clinton’s campaign chairman, and one of those emails even discussed the use of “oversampling” to rig the polls.

Oversampling is a tactic where more of a certain group is polled — such as more Democrats than Republicans — in an effort to sway the results.

This isn’t anything new, but the concrete evidence of it out of the horse’s mouth is huge. For the Clinton campaign to admit the use of this biased and dirty tactic in an email is something people should remember every time the media trots out a poll.

As Ann Coulter noted in her book “Slander,” the liberal media has used rigged polls to sway public opinion for years. This election isn’t the first time and, sadly, it won’t be the last.

The mainstream media is massively biased, and their polls are often rigged. Keep Reagan’s 1980 landslide win in mind over the next two weeks — and ignore the games being played by the media.
