In a poll created yesterday which has received nearly 85K votes, the Donald leads by a huge margin:

This is somewhat surprising when you look at the map from whence the respondents hail.

I would like to see the methods used to get these results in order to determine what sort of bias may have gone in to the outcome. But this goes against a lot of what has come out of different polling firms in recent weeks.

What says ATS?

Jill Stein gets more votes than Johnson?

That poll is all over the place.

In the "regular" polls, the results are much different.

General Election: Trump vs. Clinton vs. Johnson vs. Stein.

I've heard a lot of Bernie supporters are in Jill Stein's corner now. Johnson is for the TPP, which they're against.

There are scientific polls like at your links and then their are just online type polls. If online polls had any accuracy Ron Paul would have been President, Snakes on a Plane the biggest movie of all time and Sharknado the highest rated TV show of all time.

But I thought Trump followers didn't believe in the Polls because they are all "Rigged"?

OR is it more accurate to say that Trump and his supporters think all Poll that don't support Trump are "Rigged"?

Possible?

I find this line from lefties to be hilarious consider 8 years of claims Bush rigged both elections.

Oh look, an internet poll...which means absolutely nothing.

Let's stick to the real polls:

Clinton leading by an average of 7.9 points
www.realclearpolitics.com...

Or, maybe you would rather look at favoribility rating...Clinton leading Trump by 17.7 points.
www.realclearpolitics.com...

Or the electoral map projection, where Clinton only needs to lock up 14 more electoral votes to get over 270.
www.realclearpolitics.com...

How about some prediction markets and betting odds?

Take your pick, they all show the same thing...Trump is losing horribly in this election at this point.

But sure, go with an online internet poll...I'm sure that tells the true story.

Current she is up 3 with a MOE 3. Same polls also said mid terms would be close and they were way off. All polls are junk according to former Politico editor. The leaks are killing her and no amount of money can fix it.

Well, since I am considered to be "To the Right of Genghis Khan" by my friends, family and voting record and not a "leftie", AND because I wasn't talking about Bush or 2000 or 2004...how about you try to stay on point and focus your comments on what WAS said?

But you have displayed yet another Trump & Co. standard trait: Responding to something you don't like by totally ignoring the question, attacking the person who raised the question, then trying to turn it around with something irrelevant to the topic at hand.

Textbook. 10/10.

I don't think any poll can be trusted, whether online or "official".

is this a sign of the beginning of the sensation dying out...

maybe.

Here's my thinking on this when compared to the other polls. This is an internet poll (as so helpfully pointed out above) and as a result is made up of people who made the effort to participate.

Other polls are inflicted on people and, yes, they chose to participate as well but I am left wondering what that would mean in regards to outcome.

Considering all that has been learned about how exit polling data is no longer shared and taking in to account the fractional nature of vote counting, I have very little confidence in reported outcomes by long established organizations.

I suggest people download the "We The People" app. Their heat-map has been reflecting these same numbers for a few weeks now. Seems to be all user generated and a good source for judging the real political climate. Especially like being able to see the individual voters in my community.

Note: Jill has been leading Gary in this poll for weeks now.

There are computer programs that can flood online polls.

I think this poll can be easily explained by the many, many folks of retirement age, who have discovered the interwebs, and are of a conservative background. They like being able to answer these online polls, and they really like forwarding them to their 107 like-minded contacts via email.

My mother-in-law comes to mind...

I understand that you do not like facts much but, providing correct information hardly is the result of being "scared". What would I be "scared" of? The train wreck the is the Trump campaign? That Trump is going do so poorly a third party the Libertarians will be a real part of the next election? That Trump is killing the GOP? That Trump was only able to control his crazy for 1 day? I Do not fear any of that, I love it.

Hey, I get it. You backed the wrong horse and he has done nothing but, do stupid things over and over forcing you to double down. And your frustrated. It happens.

That's not an NBC poll.

This is the NBC poll.....

The poll you referenced is some cheezy website. Looks like something a Trump supporter would design.

Expect a landslide come November.
