The mainstream media is doing everything to help Hillary.
At this point it is embarrassing.
A CNN poll came out showing that Trump is 2 points ahead of Hillary and it corroborated the story of several other polls that show Hillary slowly sinking since the DNC.
But MSNBC didn’t like that very much.
So, they made something up.
I think @chucktodd just unskewed the CNN poll to match 2012 exits, which, if I'm interpreting right, is a bad idea

This is just a slight adjustment.
This just goes to show that Trump is beating Hillary nationally. Not just in this poll, but in several others.
Including this one from Rasmussen:
Hillary Clinton’s post-convention lead has disappeared, putting her behind Donald Trump for the first time nationally since mid-July.
The latest weekly Rasmussen Reports White House Watch national telephone and online survey shows Trump with 40% support to Clinton’s 39% among Likely U.S. Voters, after Clinton led 42% to 38% a week ago. Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson now earns seven percent (7%) of the vote, down from nine percent (9%) the previous two weeks, while Green Party candidate Jill Stein picks up three percent (3%) support. Three percent (3%) like some other candidate, and seven percent (7%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording,click here.)
Clinton’s support has been trending down from a high of 44% in early August just after the Democratic National Convention. This is her lowest level of support since mid-July. Trump’s support has been eroding, too, from his high of 44% at that time. A one-point lead is statistically insignificant in a survey with a +/- 3 percentage point of margin of error. It highlights, however, that this remains a very close race.
MSNBC will probably try to adjust that one as well.
Funny how there hasn’t been any adjusting of the polls until Trump started winning.
