Cue the Popcorn: Chuck Todd, Trump Aide Spar over Post-Debate Polls

Rather entertaining exchange [1] over the online poll validity, which is a fair point brought up by NBC’s Chuck Todd:

“Meet The Press” moderator Chuck Todd became incredulous Thursday as a spokesman for Donald Trump’s campaign continued to cite non-scientific polls as evidence that Trump won Monday’s debate.

Spokesman Jason Miller and Todd went back and forth over the issue despite many scientific polls, which, as Todd noted, almost universally handed Clinton a debate win. At one point, Todd told Miller that the online polls he and the campaign cite are “bogus” and “aren’t real.”

“Why do you think multiple polls — scientific polls — have given, said Hillary Clinton won that debate by a 2-1 margin,” Todd asked. “I mean, it’s not even been close.”
