Polls Could Be Hiding Trump Support (Study)

(RightWing.org) – Many Democrats are starting to think they have November’s election in the bag, as polls show a lead for Joe Biden. But a new study suggests there could be a lot more going on behind the scenes. A poll carried out for Bloomberg found while leftists usually give honest answers to pollsters, Independents and Republicans are a lot more reticent about how they plan to vote.

CloudResearch LLC, a Queens-based company, carried out an online survey asking people how they’d respond to a telephone poll. What they found was that while just 5.4% of Democrats said they wouldn’t give their real intentions, 10.5% of independents and 11.7% of Republicans would hide how they plan to vote.

There are two implications in this. One is moderate and right-of-center Americans are worried about the consequences of honesty – many told the pollsters that “it’s dangerous to express an opinion outside of the current Liberal viewpoint.” The other is that President Trump’s chances of reelection are a lot better than the polls seem to suggest.
