Since I last posted, there hasn't been many Twitter or Internet polls that have been released pertaining to the election. However, there is one big poll comparison that can be made.
On my last post, the last poll I went over was a poll from @Politics_Polls, a fairly sizable account with over 150,000 followers. The ran a poll last week on "who you would vote for if the election were held today". Biden/Harris won with a little over 52% of the vote.
This week, that same account ran another poll asking the same question and the results are a bit eye opening. Let's take a look.
Again this poll is from @Politics_Polls:
That is a pretty big win for Trump there. It wasn't even close. What happened? Last week the same account ran the same poll and Biden and Harris won, not big, but they did win. Here I'll post it below:
Like I said in my prior post, polls will change, especially these kind of polls. Do I expect Trump to have the big of a result each time? No. Do I expect them to be close, not exactly, but I do expect in the coming months that one candidate will continuously win each poll posted rather close or by a landslide. So far, it's looking to be in Trump's favor.
Trump did receive a bump this week. During the Democrat National Convention, Trump's approval rating went up each day. Yesterday and today, Trump received a 51% approval rating according to Rasmussen Reports. Here's that tweet below to see the bump he received this week:
It's kind of funny to see the opposing candidate receive an approval bump during the party's national convention. What does that say about Biden/Harris, and the democrats overall? They have no message except Trump is bad, could that be it? Seems like it.
All I have to say is there is a shift towards the President, and we are seeing it play out daily. The Twitter poll I posted today seems to match the Rasmussen polls above. Let's see how this continues to play out. Stay tuned!
Listen we all know the polls the media puts out can't be trusted. The way the media skews the data makes the results always in favor of one party, and that party is the democrat party.
That's why I'm a huge fan of Twitter polls. Twitter polls, yeah anybody can take them, but that's the thing anybody can take them. With media polls the do more polling in certain regions and sample more democrats. I feel with Twitter polls and other open Internet polls out there, you get more accurate results.
I did this same thing back in 2016, and you know what polls got the election in 2016 right? It wasn't the media polls, it were the Internet and Twitter polls.
So Let's take a look at some big US political polling accounts on Twitter. The first two polls I'll show you are recent, and the last one is last week.
Let's start with a poll courtesy of @PpollingNumbers:
This poll doesn't ask who people plan on voting for, but simply who they think is going to win the 2020 US presidential election, and you see who's on most peoples minds, President Trump. I mean this is a pretty significant poll based on the number of votes and just the runaway victory the President receives here.
Now let's take a look at a poll courtesy of @USPoliticsPoll:
This poll finished just today, and it comes from a fairly large account (16.2K followers). The result here has more people planning to vote for Trump-Pence at 51.1% than Biden-Harris at 48.9%. Close, but does resemble that Spectator Index poll I posted about last Friday.
From the looks of those 2 polls above, and the Spectator Index poll from last week, the momentum and enthusiasm is on Trump's side. However, let's take one more look at another poll here from last week.
This poll is courtesy of @Politics_Polls:
This one has the largest sample of them all, but it is from last week. This one has Biden-Harris up by a fair amount, and is similar to the results that Trump-Pence received in the US Politics Polls poll above. Is the enthusiasm and momentum really on Trump's side? I still believe so, based on the polling from the past couple of days and the support the President has been receiving in the past couple of weeks.
This is why I love Twitter and Internet polls, they can always be different, but at one point, once more minds are made up and more results are counted, one option will start running away with the lead. That's what happened in 2016, some polls like these showed Hillary up and Trump up, but towards November everything started pointing at Trump.
We'll see in the coming months, but stay tuned to Pulsar for more!
With this week's Democratic Vice President announcement, the 2020 presidential election's script is nearing a finish and the cast has been selected. Kamala Harris, also known by her stage name, Heels Up Harris, will join Joe Biden on the Democratic ticket this November. Let's just be honest, it's Harris vs Trump now.
It didn't take long for the media to go bonkers with the whole "First African American woman Vice Presidential pick", even though that isn't true at all. Kamala is Jamaican and Indian, not African at all. Just the facts, folks, but the media hates the facts.
Those same media outlets also have been touting her record in the senate and as California's Attorney General, but they leave out the fact that her senate record has nothing to do with working class families or middle class America at all. Those media outlets also refuse to report on the fact when Harris was Cali's AG, she kept innocent men locked up in prison.
Don't take it from me, read these two articles, one from the Los Angeles Times and the other via Vice. Both outlets are pretty left of center if you ask me.
There are more stories out there to back that up, research yourself, but make sure you search on duckduckgo.com, Google will make it hard on you, or just ask me.
I'll be breaking down more the Biden-Harris ticket as the months go on, and trust me, there's plenty of baggage to go around for the both of them. It'll also be interesting to see how the polls change from here on out, and especially once the debates kick off.
In the meantime, here's our first major social media poll on the 2020 election since Biden announced Harris has his running mate via The Spectator Index:
It's looking good so far for Trump and Pence! Stay tuned for more polls I'll be posting and going over now until November.
