A new Reuters poll has many Republicans worried about the outcome of the 2016 presidential race, and many Democrats ready to celebrate.
The poll shows presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton leading by 14 percent over her rival Donald Trump: 47 to 33 percent respectively.
Unfortunately though, this poll is heavily skewed.
The Gateway Pundit reports that of the 1,201 people in the poll, 626 were Democrats and 423 were Republicans.
In other words, 52 percent of Reuter’s respondents were Democrats while only 35 percent were Republicans, which gave one party a huge advantage.
According to AllenBWest.com, Reuters isn’t the only misleading presidential poll. A new ABC News/Washington Post survey found that voters preferred Hillary 51 percent to 39 percent. In that sample, 36 percent of respondents were Democrats while only 24 were Republicans.
This poll is even less believable since Republican turnout in 2016 is set to be higher than in previous years. NPR noted in March that Republicans outstripped Democrats in primary turnout because of he insurgent nature of Donald Trump’s candidacy – Hannity.com
The polls can’t be trusted, but what we do know as a fact is that Trump has more wins than any other Republican or Democrat candidate in this year’s race with 36. He also has more primary wins with 33 and leads all candidates in percent of overall wins and in percent of primary wins.
Trump has received more votes than any candidate in Republican history by shattering the previous record by 1.4 million votes – in a race with 17 candidates.
