Top Trump spokesman won't admit unscientific online polls are 'bogus' in cringeworthy interview

Published by Business Insider on Fri, 30 Sep 2016

A top spokesman for Donald Trump refused to admit Thursday that unscientific online polls are 'bogus' when pressed repeatedly by MSNBC host Chuck Todd.'Why do you think the multiple polls, scientific polls, have said Hillary Clinton won the debate by a two-to-one margin'' Todd asked.

' They're not real, Jason!'Miller, undeterred, kept to his talking points.'Chuck, the energy and the enthusiasm in this race are all with Mr. Trump,' he said.All four scientific polls conducted in the aftermath of the debate found viewers thought Clinton won handily.
