13 Days before Elections: Trump never had faith in polls

The newest conspiracy theory of Donald Trump is that polls are designed only to supporters of Democrats that is why he's always on the last of the list when survey results are out.

"When the polls are even, when they leave them alone and do them properly, I'm leading," Trump said in the rally in Florida. "But you see these polls where they're polling Democrats, 'How's Trump doing?' 'Oh, he's down.' They're polling Democrats!"

To make his conspiracy theory more sound, he confirmed his stance on polls through his Tweet last Monday morning.

Donald Trump: "Major story that the Dems are making up phony polls in order to suppress the the Trump . We are going to WIN!"

Trump believes that polls are rigged through getting more Democrats sign the survey, further making Hillary Clinton always on top. He even explained that no any of his supporters had a chance to be interviewed or to answer the survey questionnaire related to the upcoming US elections.

However, the Washington Post, one of the conductor of election polls responded on the conspiracy theory of Donald Trump.

"Normal polling in a state will usually have no problem getting enough white people in the mix to evaluate where they stand, but you may need to specifically target more black or Hispanic voters to get a statistically relevant sample size," said the Washington Post representative. "It's also worth noting that more Americans identify as Democrats than Republicans: 30% to 24%, according to Pew Research."

Being behind the polls and surveys related to the US elections, Trump exclaimed to his audience that polls are indeed rigged, and that the Democrats, are obviously benefiting from the system being rigged.

"When the people who control the political power in our society can rig investigations, can rig polls, you see these phony polls, and rig the media, they can wield absolute power over your life, your economy and your country, and benefit big time by it," Trump said.
