Presidential race polling results leading up to the 2016 election were incredibly inaccurate. Yet, here we are, four years later talking about how the disoriented Democrat Joe Biden is leading in the polls against President Trump, who presided over a booming economy responsible for historically low unemployment numbers for Blacks, Hispanics, and women.
Here are a couple of examples of how the media portrayed the race only days before the election:
One factor the media ignored and continues to ignore, is the enthusiasm Trump supporters have for their candidate, something Joe Biden, no matter how hard he tries, will never be able to replicate.
The enthusiasm for President Trump is revealed in primary elections across the nation, where voters are turning out in large numbers to show their support for re-electing the most popular Republican president since Ronald Reagan.
Newsweek reports – President Donald Trump has so far received over 140,000 more votes in the Georgia primary than former Vice President Joe Biden.
With 70 percent of the precincts reporting for the GOP, Trump has gained 698,825 votes, compared with 552,253 for Biden, with 63 percent of precincts reporting for the Democrats, according to NBC News data.
The president also outperformed former President Barack Obama’s vote totals from the 2012 Georgia primary. Obama was running unopposed in the state and got 139,273 votes, over 500,000 fewer votes than Trump has received thus far.
Trump has been able to drive up voter turnout, resulting in his getting more votes than Obama did, multiple times already during this primary season. In the Iowa caucuses, Trump got over 30,000 more votes than Obama did in 2012. In New Hampshire, Trump got nearly 130,000 votes, more than twice as many as the former president received in 2012.
