Ann Coulter: "Trump's Popularity Can't Be Measured By Traditional Polls"

Ann Coulter says Trump's popularity, much like Brexit, can't be measured by traditional polls.

Via RCP:
"[Anger over immigration and amnesty] is what the Trump candidacy is about, it is quite parallel to what's happening with Brexit: The people speak, and both political parties, I'm sorry to say my own political party... Until Trump, both political parties have been aligned against us to do the bidding of Wall Street. To protect the corporations, to bring in cheap labor. They're getting massively rich, living with a level of degeneracy not seen since the Czar's court, and meanwhile Americans out in America haven't seen their wages or salaries go up for years."

"I don't know as much about why the polls were so wrong on Brexit --and they were, even the betting polls... But I'm quite sure that... I do discount the polls. For one thing, pollsters have to ask: Did you vote in the last election, did you vote in the election before that. A pollster can't say that someone who didn't vote for twenty years is going to vote this time. You just can't do that if you're a pollster. We know Trump is bringing our people who haven't voted for 20 years."

"So I do think there is good reason to believe the polls will not capture the fervor for Donald Trump."

On the flip side, Sierra Rayne had an excellent article in the American Thinker last week where she argued the pollsters are simply committing fraud.
For the weak-minded among us who continue to believe in polling data, the Brexit vote shows yet again what a biased absurdity the polls have become.

...Not a single one of the well known polling aggregators/predictors picked Brexit in their last-minute final projections.

...The overall bias in favor of Remain was effectively uniform, which is statistically impossible if the bias was random. The bias was systematic.

There is every sort of faux intellectual handwaving explanations being bandied about over why the Brexit polls were wrong. Follow the money, and you will find the answers you seek.

...Funny how in the last couple years, the polls have been so wrong, and it seems always in the direction against the cause du jour of the leftists.
Rayne pointed out how the same is now occurring with Trump.

As I highlighted during the primaries, pollsters frequently had Trump polling terribly before every crucially needed victory. Polls influence public opinion, if the pollsters and media can give the impression someone is losing, the herd will move away from them. There's no doubt in my mind half these polls are rigged, if they weren't rigged, as Rayne notes, they wouldn't favor the establishment every time.

While Trump is supposedly polling badly in national polls from Bloomberg and elsewhere, in local swing state polls that are not dripping with bias and oversampling democrats 2-1 over republicans he's polling even, which based off past results and the X factor Coulter cited means he's ahead.
