Between now and election day the media and the Biden campaign will manufacture false polls and predictions of a big Biden win to create a fake momentum they think will crest in November to give Biden the White House.

MORE NEWS: Joe Biden Slips And Twists His Ankle
While the campaign is very close, the NBC/WSJ poll below, both outlets despise Trump, is patently ridiculous or manipulated in such a way to give Biden a double digit lead. It was released to take advantage of a perceived Trump debate loss.
Fox News reports, “A new poll shows Democratic nominee Joe Biden with a 14 point lead nationally over President Trump, following the first presidential debate…The survey, which was conducted by NBC News and The Wall Street Journal, was taken between Sept. 30 and Oct. 1 and covered 800 registered voters. It had a margin of error of around 3.5 percent…The results showed 53 percent of respondents said they’d vote for the former vice president, compared to 39 percent for Trump.” Further polls will hit at the president’s supposed medical incapacity.
Trump aides pushed back on that, “It’s important that our campaign vigorously proceeds,” Trump campaign senior adviser Steve Cortes said Sunday.
“The MAGA movement is bigger than just President Trump. He’s instrumental of course but he is not the only key element. The other people, including of course the vice-president, campaign people, millions of regular Americans need to step up and to some degree fill the void that is left because our champion, our main instrument, is not able at this moment to vigorously campaign.”
Jason Miller, another adviser to the Trump campaign, said he had “no concerns” about Pence campaigning until the president fully recovers. “We’re in a campaign, we have a month to go, we see Joe Biden and Kamala Harris out there campaigning,” he said Sunday on NBC. “He’s going to have a full aggressive schedule, as will the first family, Don, Eric, Ivanka. We have a number of our supporters, our coalition, Black Voices for Trump, Latinos for Trump, the whole operation MAGA will be deploying everywhere.”
But some are more cautious, if not worried, “I’ve had conversations with Republicans working in swing states around the country and they are alarmed,” Steve Hayes, founder and chief executive of the Dispatch, told media.
“It’s not just affecting President Trump. People look at the debate performance negatively but it’s also starting to affect Republicans down ballot. If this current trajectory continues through November the third, we’re going to be talking about a lot more Republican senators at risk than we’re talking about right now.”
Hayes has some legitimate concerns. But he and others must be careful not to drink Democrat kool-aid. The Biden campaign and the Left are trying manipulate their hopes into reality by creating fake momentum. Only a fool would fall for it.
