‘We Are Not Ahead by Double Digits,’ Biden Campaign Manager Reportedly Admits Polls Inflated

https://www.theepochtimes.com/...reaking-2020-10-17-3

The Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s campaign manager reportedly admitted that the national public polling numbers, which show Biden overwhelmingly leading President Donald Trump, are inflated.

“Please take the fact that we are not ahead by double digits,” Jen O’Malley Dillon reportedly said during a grassroots summit of the campaign on Friday. “Those are inflated national public polling numbers.”

The video of the live event seems to have been deleted but her comments were posted on Twitter by New York Times reporter Shane Goldmacher.

The Biden campaign and Trump campaign didn’t respond to requests for comments.

This is not the only circumstance Dillon cautioned about the leading position of Biden.

She reportedly said in a three-page memo obtained by Fox News that Trump can still win the November election and the race is “neck and neck” in certain states like Arizona and North Carolina.

“[T]he reality is that this race is far closer than some of the punditry we’re seeing on Twitter and on TV would suggest,” Dillon allegedly wrote in the memo. “[E]ven the best polling can be wrong and that variables like turnout mean that in a number of critical swing states we are fundamentally tied.”

Currently, national polls data overwhelmingly show Trump trails Biden. As of Saturday, the RealClearPolitics average of the polls shows Biden leads Trump with nine percent nationally.

However, the Trump campaign is highly skeptical of the poll.

“In 2016, the ABC News/Washington Post Poll was such a complete disaster that these two … news Organizations changed the numbers prior to the Election. Now these haters are trying the same thing, though on a lesser scale, again. Will have a bigger win than even 2016!” Trump wrote in a Twitter post back on Oct. 11.

The current situation brings about a feeling of deja vu of the 2016 race when polls show Trump trailed Hillary Clinton, the then failed Democratic nominee for the White House.

A study published in August by CloudResearch, an online market research and data collection company, found polls are unable to capture the full extent of support for Trump due to a “shy voter” phenomenon.

The study shows that 11.7 percent of Republican voters fall into the “shy voter” category—meaning they would be reluctant to disclose to pollsters their true preferences for who they would vote for in the presidential election—more than twice as likely as Democrats with a percentage of 5.4.

It supports the view that polls may not capture the full extent of support for Trump, the study says.

I want to know how these book deals work. Have you ever seen Biden's book on anyone's coffee table? Have you ever seen someone carrying a copy in an airport or airplane? Who the hell buys these books for which publishers pay huge advances?


Recall when Clinton’s book came out it immediately jumped to the top of the NYT book list. When? Because the NYT does the selection. “ NYT keeps a tight lid on its process for selecting bestsellers. It is known that NYT samples its own list of certain booksellers across the country—then look at the data with wise NYT brains, and decide whom they think should be on the list...it’s also done so that The New York Times can have a say about which books get the extra credibility of being named a bestseller.“

Who reports sales? The publisher. Amazon ranks books based on recent sales. A book sold today counts more then one sold a year ago. Further, books sold by the publisher are counted as “sold.” However, they can be returned to the publisher and the sale stands.

All those millions paid for the advance on the book? “ Most authors do not make any money off of actual book sales because most books do not “earn out” their “advance.” Traditionally published authors are paid money up front, before a book is released. This “advance” is money given up front to the author out of future royalties so that the author can buy ramen and pay the overdue electricity bill. “Earning out” means the book has sold enough copies that the total royalties (not the total sales) match up to the advance, thus providing a (most likely tiny) trickle of royalty money to authors for all sales thereafter.”

There’s also a scam to being a “Best seller.” Amazon has 500 categories of books. Select and oddball category (Yes, you get to choose.) Now post the book, buy a couple of copies and suddenly your on the top of the charts! A “best Seller.”

Then the author can buy their book (at a discount) and hand them out. There was a science fiction author that started a religion. His followers reportedly bought multiple books, shipped them back, then they were sent to bookstores. Repeated as required.

So the “best seller” isn’t how many books are sold.

Hunter Biden also had business dealings in Kazakhstan: report

https://nypost.com/2020/10/17/...-ties-in-kazakhstan/



Hunter Biden is facing fresh questions over business dealing in yet another nation — Kazakhstan.

Between 2012 and 2014 — when his father Joe Biden served as Vice President — Hunter Biden worked as a go-between to Kenes Rakishev, a Kazakh oligarch with close ties to the country’s longtime kleptocratic leader Nursultan Nazarbayev, The Daily Mail reported.

The British tabloid said they obtained emails from “anti-corruption campaigners” in Kazakhstan showing Hunter making contact with Rakishev and attempting to facilitate investment for his cash in New York, Washington DC and a Nevada mining company.

Through his connections, emails show Hunter Biden successfully engineered a $1 million investment from Rakishev to filmmaker Alexandra Forbes Kerry — the daughter of ex-Sen. and former Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry, the report said.

Hunter Biden also traveled to the country’s capital of Astana for business talks.

Rakishev, however, repeatedly ran into problems finding western business partners due to the murky origins of his wealth. The respected International Finance Corp. pulled out a planned deal with him over “liabilities” stemming from his connections to the country’s rulers.

As in other nations like Ukraine and China where Hunter plied his trade, Joe Biden may not have been far behind. The Mail published a photo they obtained from the “Kazakhstani Initiative on Asset Recovery” showing Hunter Biden with his beaming father alongside Rakishev.

Hunter Biden and Rakishev also enjoyed a long and chummy personal correspondence as well, alleged emails show.

“I’m on vacation with family [at] Lake Michigan . . . trying to spend some much needed time with my wife and daughters. It’s my 20th anniversary of marriage tomorrow,” Hunter told Rakishev in 2013.

The laptop looks more and more legit.

And the FBI has had it since 7 Dec 2019.

And the DEMs tried to impeach Trump when ?

The impeachment of Donald Trump, the 45th president of the United States, was initiated on December 18, 2019 , when the House of Representatives approved articles of impeachment on charges of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

And the only way we have ever heard of it is because the repair guy got it to Rudy Giuliani lawyer

Giuliani’s attorney, Bob Costello, met up with the store owner and spent about a week reviewing the information it contained to make sure it was legal to release. The contract Hunter Biden signed said that if the computer wasn’t picked up in 90 days it would be considered abandoned and the owner would obtain possession.

The information, however, wasn’t validated until Giuliani received a copy and reviewed the information. Based on dates and information from a confidential informant, Giuliani was able to validate it was, in fact, Hunter’s computer.

Based on what’s known, Giuliani stated Hunter Biden should be in prison for failing to register as a foreign agent, which is what Paul Manafort went to jail for.

Don’t be ridiculous! Of course the Lame Stream Media has a lot of integrity. It shows through clearly as they continually shill and cover for the GDCs.

Chris Stigall:

Obama will be stumping for Biden in Philly Wednesday. Now, I’m no politico but if you’re sending your biggest gun into deep blue Philly days before the general - that tells me you’re concerned about turnout for gramps and hoping Obama can juice turnout.

shipwreckedcrew:

History says turnout in Philly can lose the race for Dem. It can't necessarily win the race, but without a specific number of votes in Philly, a Dem is doomed statewide. This is not a positive sign for Biden, and it confirms lack of enthusiasm for Biden among young Black voters.

As "global policy manager for content," at Facebook, does Anna Makanju or her department have anything to do with the decision to suppress news stories concerning VP Biden, Hunter Biden, China and or the Ukraine? Or on Russia for that matter?

Nothing to see here? Anna Makanju was previously a special advisor for VP Biden, the director for Russia on the NSC, and chief of staff at the US DOD for European & NATO Policy during the Obama administration. She also has elementary proficiency in Ukrainian and fluent in Russian, her country of birth.

Oooo... Ahhh... the ol' Obama 'magic', it ain't what it used to be ...

Obama has a miserable record when it comes to electing anyone but himself. Whether he was trying to help some Democrat win a governorship or a Senate seat, Obama's record has been abominable. By now, he must be something like 0-40.

"Some things are apparent. Where government moves in, community retreats, civil society disintegrates and our ability to control our own destiny atrophies. The result is: families under siege; war in the streets; unapologetic expropriation of property; the precipitous decline of the rule of law; the rapid rise of corruption; the loss of civility and the triumph of deceit. The result is a debased, debauched culture which finds moral depravity entertaining and virtue contemptible."

Obama has made it pretty clear about his feelings for Sleepy Joe. He didn't endorse him until very late in the game and now he's going to "campaign" for him with just over 2 weeks to go. Even Barry the Red knows Biden has ZERO chance of beating Trump.

The Anna Makanju story is being covered over at the Treehouse as well -

Unbelievable – Facebook’s Lead Executive on Election Policy Was Vice-President Joe Biden’s Advisor to Ukraine…

Heck, from that pattern of behavior it makes sense to ask how badly O wants Biden elected. While Chellim's (IMHO) right about O going to Philly to juice turnout, I wonder whether O isn't trying to juice turnout for Dems lower on the ballot as well just to juice O's stature within the party. I mean, if Biden doesn't save ObamaCare, who will?

Yeah, thought occurred to me how often a movie, a meal a relationship and many other things that had your rapt attention and devotion, just don't have the same effect on you after time has passed.

I figure a lot of that luster has faded from the impact and dazzle in his dance.

Like watching has-been celebrities up on the stage of Dancing With the Stars. Better to let people remember in their dreams the delusion than to wake them up to reality.
