Trump supporters have been whining about the polls for months now, but Sarah Palin just took the prize for giving the dumbest reason why the polls are wrong.
Countless scientific polls show that Hillary Clinton is leading the Republican nominee by several points, therefore, Trump thinks the media is rigging the election by fixing the polls.
And America’s village idiot also doesn’t believe what the polls say and actually told Fox News host Bill O’Reilly that she thinks Trump will win Michigan even though six polls show Clinton leading by a range of 3 to 7 points and the state hasn’t gone for a Republican since 1988.
But speaking from Detroit, Palin told O’Reilly that the polls are wrong.
You’re not in Michigan, then, cos they are hot, hot, hot for Trump,” Palin told O’Reilly after he asked a previous guest if Trump’s momentum has hit a wall.
“The polls say that Clinton’s up by five,” O’Reilly informed Palin. “Are you willing to make a prediction that Trump will carry Michigan this time around?”
Palin responded by trashing the polls and literally said there is “no reason” why Trump won’t win Michigan.
“There’s no reason why he wouldn’t…Like I’ve said before, polls are only good for strippers and cross-country skiers. What matters is that two days from now, you know, the gettin’ out the vote effort and making sure these Reagan Democrats and independents and Michigan Republicans get out their vote. I just don’t put a whole lot of faith in polls, especially two days out.”

Republicans are doubling down on their doubts about polling. Four years ago when Mitt Romney was the nominee conservatives swore up and down that their candidate was winning and that the polls were all wrong. As we all know, Republicans ate a lot of crow on Election Day in 2012 when the polls turned out to be correct.
This kind of denial may be fine when the polls show a tied race or a difference of a single point but we’re talking about polls that show pretty big leads only a day before November 8th, and Donald Trump is clearly getting his ass kicked by a girl.
Trump supporters really are delusional if they think the opposite is true.
