ABC News has released the results of their newest poll with the headline "Clinton Vaults to a Double-Digit Lead, Boosted by Broad Disapproval of Trump," showing Hillary with a comfortable 12-point lead over Donald Trump, yet other polls like Rasmussen, Investor's Business Daily, and the Los Angeles Times show a virtual tie.
What's going on here?
According to ZeroHedge, ABC News is oversampling Democrat voters and black voters, and it's a method Hillary's campaign uses, as revealed by a recent WikiLeaks release.
ZeroHedge points out that 9% more Democrats than Republicans were among the 874 likely voters questioned in the poll, even though there are only slightly more registered Democrats in America than Republicans. They also pointed out that even a slight oversampling of black voters can make a huge difference since black voters are far more likely to support Hillary than Trump.
A WikiLeaks release of Hillary campaign chairman John Podesta's e-mails reveals him explaining in detail how to manufacture poll results, specifically by oversampling Hispanic and Native American voters in Arizona, undersampling elderly voters in Florida, and oversampling Hispanic and black voters in Florida.
In fact, Podesta even uses the term "over sample" repeatedly throughout his e-mails.
