CNN Busted Rigging Their Polls To Claim Hillary Clinton Won The Debate

After Monday night's big debate, online polls seemed to hand the win to GOP candidate Donald Trump. CNN, a media outlet that has unabashedly favored Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, was among the first news sources to print articles bashing online polls as unreliable. Looks like it was the pot calling the kettle black.

CNN declared Clinton won the debate in a poll taken afterward, and several other liberal-leaning media outlets have hailed the results as more reliable and accurate than online polls. "Meaningful national polls seek a diverse sample of respondents. The goal is to accurately represent the views of the country by accounting for differences in age, gender, party affiliations and other factors," wrote CNN host Brian Stelter.

"In fact, CNN/ORC's poll was one of the few polls conducted by professional researchers immediately following the debate," Stelter argued.

According to an examination of the data, however, CNN's poll is as unreliable as online polls. They've been touting their poll results, claiming 62% of respondents said Clinton won the debate, while only 27% said Trump won.

The problem? Only 26% of the people surveyed in the poll were Republicans. Some 41% were Democrats, and 33% were independents. This 15% disparity between the two major parties means that the poll results were deliberately heavily skewed towards Clinton. CNN didn't mention the disparity in their article about the poll, but mention was found on CNN's image server.

CNN had one thing right - polls can easily be manipulated. Some Trump fans have claimed on social media that they voted repeatedly to up Trump's numbers in online polls. Likewise, a 'Time' poll showed Trump beat Clinton 59% to 41%, and no sooner were the numbers published than 300,000 votes surged in for Clinton, showing her supporters were trying to skew the numbers.

Apparently, CNN figured if you can't beat them, join them. So much for trustworthy objective journalism.
