Blue Wave like that Blue Wall?
Since 1992, in six consecutive presidential elections, a solid block of 18 states had voted for the Democrat every single time. They would have given Clinton 239 electoral votes — 89 percent of the way to victory — if she had held on to them all.
Few bothered to ask those states’ voters what they thought, though. “Pre-election polling in the Midwest . . . just wasn’t there,” Salvanto said. When Trump knocked out Michigan and Wisconsin, two of Clinton’s critical Rust Belt supports, her Blue Wall crumbled.
Instead of owning up to their colossal failure the media bent over further for the Democrats and pushed the Russia! Narrative. It'll be amusing to see their new boogeyman when the Democrats don't flip the House in a few months.
In 2016, only two major surveys’ final predictions foresaw a Trump victory. Both of them — from the LA Times/USC and IBD/TIPP — were tracking polls.
These will be the polls to watch for 2020.
