The polls show Joe Biden leading Donald Trump.
This is driving the coverage of the 2016 race.
And Rush Limbaugh made one confession about polls that you have to read to believe.
The Real Clear Politics polling average shows Joe Biden holding a nearly ten-point lead over President Trump.
Fake news reporters and Democrats are already writing Donald Trump’s political obituary.
But even in the face of all the polling data that shows Biden on the verge of victory, Rush Limbaugh is calling foul.
During a recent broadcast, Limbaugh noted that around this time in 2016, polls showed Hillary Clinton leading Donald Trump as well.
“We had a little poll last week showing Hillary Clinton ahead of Donald Trump by 11 points, the same time, same poll that shows Biden ahead of Trump by 11 points now. And, of course, we know what happened. Hillary Clinton didn’t win by 11 points, she didn’t win, period,” Limbaugh began.
Limbaugh explained that it was too far away from the election for polls to mean anything.
“But more than that, nobody’s gonna remember this poll. Here we have a poll taken, what, June 23rd or even if it was last week. We’re not close enough to the election yet where these polls matter because there are still events that are going to shape the election that haven’t happened yet. There’s no question about that,” Limbaugh added.
The top-rated talk show host explained that the true purpose of these polls was to convince Trump supporters the race was over and not show up on Election Day.
“So the polling data that’s taken now and reported has a different purpose than trying to predict the winner. Oh, they might tell you that’s what they’re trying to do, but that’s not what these polls are about now,” Limbaugh added.
Limbaugh said he ignores the polls and predicted Trump would win a resounding victory in November.
“I don’t get worked up about them. Even if they show my particular candidate in a good light, unless I think the election is a slam dunk anyway this far out. And my thinking right now is that Trump wins this and wins this big,” Limbaugh added.
Limbaugh explained that Trump had the chance to frame the election as a choice between Trump standing up for civilization and Joe Biden taking a knee for rioters and Marxists that want to tear down civilization.
If Trump can make the election a choice instead of a referendum on his performance in office, the President has the opportunity to erase Biden’s lead in the polls and win a second term.
