Recent Poll Showing Biden in Lead Confuses and Distorts Support for Bernie Sanders

The poll largely excluded voters under the age of 50.

This wasn’t the only poll that was misrepresented. Recently, MSNBC inaccurately reported on a Monmouth poll in a graphic showing support for leading Democratic candidates among non-white voters. The poll gave Sanders a narrow edge over Biden, with 27% of respondents saying they would vote for the Vermont senator, compared to just 25% of non-white voters saying they would vote for the former vice president.

But an MSNBC graphic describing that very same Monmouth poll showed Biden leading Sanders among non-white voters by a margin of 28% to 27%.

The article doesn't go 'there' but it feels like the CNN effort was a push poll, and we already know that MSNBC (AKA MSDNC) is in bed with Biden and centrist candidates. This article shows evidence.

You know the publicity machine and the process itself are rigged.

Last night, my local Canadian news reports were all going on about Biden being as high as 36%, and Sanders down as low as 15%.

I know all these Canadian networks are just pulling from American sources, and are not practicing any more due diligence than their sources did. It's just an "automated" circus.

Rob, it has crossed my mind that leaving off the younger echelons might have been very intentional, especially if they showed huge support for Bernie! Very few of these polls do I trust.


I guess we have to weather through them but I do think that some do enormous harm because of their distortions?

We need to stop listening to the polls in the 24/7 push for viewers. for example Despite not much media attention, Elizabeth Warren surges into 2nd nationally in at least one poll



all I can say is AGGGGH!

And they only included white males in their lead image. There are other contenders, are they all invisible because of their gender and/or skin color?

How the F can they put this kind of a poll out intentionally leaving out voters from 18-50? and heavily also rely on Republican voters?


And then expect to be taken seriously as "accurate polling"?


And yet media everywhere, even internationally, trots it all out to their misled naive readers like yesterday's warmed over puke for dinner?


I think the next Democracy for America poll is going to be the key one....
