Trafalgar group trash polls

So Trafalgar came out with polls in Michigan, Flordia, and North Carolina all have Trump leading by 3 but if you look at the cross tabs they have trump winning independents by 32 and blacks by 27. These people are a joke and a campaign arm of Trump. I just hope after the election these clown pollsters don't work for another republican campaign again.

1. Trafalgar is a partisan organization...

...by which I don’t mean “politically-biased,” but “hired guns for a political party” (guess which?) – which means, while they may be hired to give the party an accuracies view of the race, they also may be hired to “prove” whatever public message the party wants to announce.

2. I don't even think Traflagar polls people

I truly think what they're doing is giving Trump cover.......When that SOB starts losing state after state on Nov 3rd, he'll say something to effect like "Traflagar, which is the best pollster, said I was winning, so something must be wrong in the counts, I'm suing"..

Traflagar is as phony as a $7 bill..

3. Winning blacks by 27% ??

Or winning 27% of blacks?

Not particularly likely... but world more so than winning the demographic absolutely

5. The poll aggregator for the Economist does not include their poll in their averages

One can see why!
