The Washington Post Buries Its Own Poll Showing TRUMP LEADS CLINTON BY TWO POINTS
The liberal Washington Post found in its new poll that Donald Trump has closed an eleven point gap to now lead Hillary Clinton by two points. Naturally, they had to downplay this information.
They even posted the story under the misleading headline “Poll: Election 2016 shapes up as a contest of negatives.”
The Washington Examiner reports:
Begrudging WaPo poll: Trump 46%, Clinton 44%
It’s not the headline, and it takes 219 words to get there, but a new Washington Post poll on the presidential race reveals that Republican Donald Trump leads Democrat Hillary Clinton among registered voters 46 percent to 44 percent.
Inside the Post’s story about the poll is this paragraph:
“At this point, the two candidates are in a statistical dead heat among registered voters, with Trump favored by 46 percent and Clinton favored by 44 percent. That represents an 11-point shift toward the presumptive Republican nominee since March. Among all adults, Clinton holds a six-point lead (48 percent to 42 percent), down from 18 points in March.”
It is the first time Trump has vaulted over Clinton in the poll and shows the advancement of the New York businessman over the past six months.
Liberal media elites can’t stand the fact that Trump is doing better than they all predicted.
Expect them to downplay all of his successes from now to the election.
