WNU Editor: Regular readers of this blog know that I follow polls closely. I always look at the methodology that is used in making a poll, and from there I try to determine if the poll makes any sense. It is through this analysis that I noticed four years ago that the polls that were being published were using samples that tilted Democrat by about 10%. The result were totally inaccurate polls like this one …. Clinton Opens 12-Point Lead on Trump as Two-Thirds See Him as Biased (POLL) (ABC News). And the polls of today are still doing the same mistake, as I pointed out in this CNN poll …. Is President Trump’s Approval At 38%? (June 8, 2020). But in the past week I have noticed something new. Most pollsters are no longer giving information on the sample that they used in making their polls. If that is not a red flag, I do not know what is.

Update: They are only fooling themselves …. Shut Up About 2016 and Trust the (Good) Polls (Vice).
