How does polling REALLY work?

What goes on behind the scenes with gathering poll numbers on election nights! Brandon Finnigan, Director of Decision Desk HQ gives us the details.
For decades, there was only one feed of election data coming from the AP. DecisionDesk data decided to challenge that and give people another line of data to explore and accept.
Red Flags concerning the Red Wave. In Wisconsin, it’s been Conservative friendly. For the first time, Conservatives lost BIG TIME.
Then Pennsylvania 18 lost to Dems. Ohio 12 barely eeked out a win.
If you don’t want to believe the polls, look at actual election results. When a Republican barely won by a point when they usually win by 15 points, that’s a RED FLAG!
Democrats have been turning out at a higher rate than Republicans. Dems are amped up to vote. Reps are just showing up, but are not motivated.
In a wave, people who aren’t expecting to lose, LOSE.
There’s so much distrust of the media, that no one is believing the polls.
Each party always says they’re going to change and learn from the last election, but they never do. It’s been going on for 200 years.
You can’t make changes at the national level until you make changes at the local level. Everything starts local!
We The People are not the peons to a high level government. They work for US! It’s not We The Govt to screw the people!
More government = Less freedom.
