Trump 2020 National Press Secretary Hogan Gidley has suggested that current national and battleground state polls are inaccurate. During a recent interview, Gidley said he believes pollsters are still under sampling Republicans. And have not changed their flawed methods on gathering sample data since the 2016 elections.
According to him, what middle America really cares about are the positive changes President Trump has made. He added it’s even more apparent when comparing it to Joe Biden’s track record.
“Elections are about binary choices between Donald Trump, who’s served this country admirably and made this country a better place, …and someone like Joe Biden, who’s still complaining about the same things today he was complaining about 50 years ago when he actually took office,” stated Gidley.
