Wildly different results in establishment media surveys
The IBDC-TIPP Presidential Election Tracking Poll, described as the “most accurate poll in recent presidential elections,” on Wednesday had Donald Trump leading Hillary Clinton by one point, 41 percent to 40 percent.
But a variety of other polls showed wildly disparate results, including one from the left-leaning Bloomberg that indicated Clinton was ahead by nine points.
The survey by Investor’s Business Daily and TechnoMetric Market Intelligence had Trump at 41.3 percent to Clinton’s 40 percent nationally and leading across the Midwest and South.
It also found 67 percent of Trump supporters are “strong” in their support, while Clinton has that level from only 58 percent.
The survey questioned 788 likely voters, with a margin of error of 3.3 percentage points.
