Can you smell the bullshit? If the media has to photoshop people into her rallies, to make it look like people love her, how the hell is she leading in the polls? The answer… both are run by media enterprises. For the right price, or threat, the can be bought off. Hillary’s campaign is nothing but a big Hollywood production. Nothing of what you see is real.
Remember the discussions of “optics” and trying to manufacture the perception of support for Hillary Clinton? It’s all a pretense; a fraud; a corporate media ruse.
Well, a great example comes today from “The Hill”, an on-line media outlet promoting the speech of candidate Clinton. Notice anything, well, ‘odd’ about the picture:
It’s a 100% photoshopped image (link) assembling multiple rally crowd pictures to give the impression of Hillary Clinton in St. Petersburg.
Hillary is holding a rally at the St. Pete Colliseum in down town St. Petersburg. Located at 353 4th Ave North, the Coliseum venue holds approximately 4,000 people. Hillary Clinton didn’t come close to filling it:
Yet, the media says she is leading in the polls…
The so-called ‘convention bounce’ that Hillary Clinton received in the polls after her party’s four-day nominating event isn’t dissipating.
Clinton has her largest lead over Donald Trump since May in this week’s NBC/Survey Monkey tracking poll.
She’s now above the watermark at 51 percent to Trump’s 41 percent. A week ago, the same survey had the race two points closer. Clinton gained one as Trump lost a percent in the days that followed.
When Libertarian Gary Johnson is included as an option along with Green Party candidate Jill Stein, the race is much closer.
In that version of the survey Clinton had 44 percent backing, Trump was 37 percent, Johnson came in at 10 percent and Stein had four percent.
The survey was taken from August 1 to August 7. The Democratic convention in Philadelphia concluded on Thursday, July 28.
Prior to the parties’ respective gatherings, Clinton and Trump were separated by a single point in the weekly survey of registered voters.
After Republicans had closed up shop in Cleveland, Trump did not receive a bump in the polls. Instead, Clinton continued to hold a one-point advantage over the newly minted Republican nominee.
At the conclusion of the Democratic National Convention Clinton was up by eight. Trump’s troubles last week helped her turn it into a 10-point spread in the latest tracker.
An LA Times survey that overlaps with the time period in which NBC did it’s polling online, via SurveyMonkey, turned up vastly different results, however.
The news publication has Clinton up by just one point, 45-44, as of Monday evening.
The margin of error on that poll is significantly higher than on the NBC survey. NBC looked at a sample of 11,480 registered voters, lowering its margin of error to plus or minus 1.2 percent from the standard three percent.
