    The Conservative Treehouse ^ | 8-26-2016 | sundance
    A non-media poll by Mason Dixon of central Florida Voters (I-4 Corridor) finds Donald Trump leading overall: 46% Trump to 42% for Clinton. More interestingly, and many would say more importantly, Donald Trump is leading Hillary Clinton by 14 points with independent voters: Trump 44%, Clinton 30% This tracks with the previous outline we shared discussing voter registration, voter intent, voter engagement, and voter analysis within Florida. All of the previous factors, without media spin, show Donald Trump positioned to crush Hillary Clinton in Florida. The Mason Dixon poll is especially valuable when you consider the strategic demographics of the...

    Is Hillary Clinton squashing Donald Trump into oblivion in the polls? Or is her lead over him perilously shrinking? One thing we know is: there are countless ways to spin a poll. Consider the case of selective reporting on the most recent Bloomberg national poll.  On Aug. 10, Bloomberg reported “Clinton up 6 on Trump in Two Way Race.” But looking at the actual poll, Trump has moved so close to Clinton, the results are within the margin of error.In the most recent poll, the spread between Clinton and Trump in a two-person race was down to just 3 percentage points, Clinton at 45%...

If it hadn’t, you could challenge the poll as an extreme outlier given that every other survey this past week captured a spike in her numbers. Reuters captured it too, though.
