The Sanders campaign is working toward a record number of donations in this period. I’ve decided to talk about it here because I think strong donations could counteract misleading poll numbers, like those recently published by CNN and Morning Consult. We knew that Joe Biden was not as strong as his numbers indicate but it’s gratifying to know how they come up with the numbers. Jordan Charitan has been reporting on the contrivance behind these numbers. For example, a major problem with the CNN Poll is that it didn’t poll Bernie’s base. Subsequently, Morning Consult seemed to learn from CNN’s ‘mistake’. That may be why they ommitted the background information about how the poll was constructed.
Of course this is nothing new. Before the 2016 election Hillary’s poll numbers in the rust belt states were astronomical as polls go–in the high 90s–and it turned out the rust belt states were her downfall.
I also want to talk about another concern I have. Gmail has been sending Bernie’s fundraising emails to my Promotions folder instead of the Primary folder. I can’t seem to fix it from my end and if I don’t remember to go the Promotions folder I don’t see his emails. I assume this is happening with all of his supporters.
