Democratic pollster Pat Caddell says some of the polling he is seeing is biased and overweighted against Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.
“I’ve never seen the media more anxious to call an election over than this one.”
“I’ve never seen the polls so out of whack,” said Caddell Monday on “The Laura Ingraham Show.” “I mean, so not universal at this stage … The tracking polls all show Trump about even … You have the ABC poll, which is a really distorted sample, of course. Nine points Democratic, which has been seized upon to continue to drive the narrative of this election that it’s over. I’ve never seen the media more anxious to call an election over than this one. Usually, they want to say it’s a contest because they get more attention and they get higher ratings — but not this one.”
Caddell was referring to a weekend poll from ABC News that garnered major media attention. The poll showed a 12-point national lead for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
The ABC poll found Clinton at 50 percent, Trump at 38 percent, Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson at 5 percent, and Green Party candidate Jill Stein at 2 percent.
