I started out as a numerical control engineer/programmer for a major defense/aerospace manufacturer and then moved to Wall Street as a manager/developer of corporate finance quantitative applications for several major investment banks. I consulted in quantitative applications development for major domestic and foreign financial institutions, investment firms and industrial corporations. In 2004 l began posting weekly "Election Model" projections based on state and national polls. As "TruthIsAll", I have been posting election analysis to determine the True Vote ever since.

Close analysis of inflated Democratic MSM Generic polls indicates the Republicans will win the House

On Oct. 11, 2018,  the Dems are leading by 49-40% in 7 Real Clear Politics (RCP) MSM Generic polls. Rasmussen and IBD/TIPP  have the Dems leading 45-44%. Which is closer to the truth?

It’s all about voter turnout. Assume the base case: 1) the Democrats and Republicans (after Kavanaugh) are equally motivated to turnout (40% of registered voters), 2)   Gallup voter affiliation Party ID (28D-27R-45I) closely reflects the electorate and 3) there is an equal split in vote shares of independents (50-50%) and party loyalty (90-10%). The  Generic 2-party vote is Dem 50.4%- Repub 49.6%.

In the last three elections, the Dems and Repubs were virtually tied in the Generic ballot and RCP poll average.  The Repubs won the House in all three by a 241-194 average.

Consider various voter turnout scenarios.  For the Dems to win by 9% as the 7-poll RCP average indicates, there would have to be 56% Dem and 40% Repub turnout. Not likely.

Flores (GOP) wins Texas senate district 19 (53-47%) for the first time in 139 years. Hispanics comprise 66%, blacks 7%, whites 27%.

Hillary Clinton carried  SD19 by 12%. Trump carried TX by 7%.

Total 100.0% 44.0% 51.1% 4.9% 53.8%

In SD19, Flores did 9% (estimated) better than Trump. The following table shows how the groups may have voted.

Reuters Trump Approval: from 42% to 47% in one week. Why? Do the math.

Richard Charnin
Sept.23, 2018

LINKS TO  BLOG POSTS

Reuters/Ipsos Trump Approval was 42.5% on 9/13/18.
1) Democrat Party ID was over-weighted at 40%
2) Republican Trump approval was understated at 84%
3) Independent Trump approval was understated at 38%

On 9/20/18 Reuters has 47% Trump approval. Why the jump?
1) Democratic Party ID is 27% based on the Gallup Survey.
2) Independent Party ID is 45%.
3) Republican Trump approval is a reasonable 90%
4) Independent Trump approval is 43%

Rasmussen has Trump at 49%.

Florida Governor Pre-election Polls

Richard Charnin
Sept. 14, 2018

LINKS TO  BLOG POSTS

According to the latest Quinnipiac poll, Gillum leads DeSantis by 3%. DeSantis has just 52% of whites (implausible), 2% of blacks (implausible) and 56% of Latinos/others. Let’s recalculate using plausible vote shares.

Rasmussen has Gillum ahead by 48-42%. DeSantis has just 29% of Independents and 46% of whites?  https://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2018/governor/fl/florida_governor_desantis_vs_gillum-6518.html

But first consider the 2016 FL presidential election. According to the FL exit poll, Trump had 64% of whites, 8% of blacks and 35% of Latinos. He had 89% of Republicans, 8% of Democrats and 47% of Independents.

Why Trump has a higher approval rating than the MSM polls

Richard Charnin
Sept. 11, 2018

Sept. 11 RCP average 40.6%; Rasmussen 47%
Sept. 22:  RCP average 42.2%; Rasmussen 49%
Oct. 4:  RCP average 43.5%; Rasmussen 51%

https://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/other/president_trump_job_approval-6179.html

Why the discrepancy with Rasmussen?
1) Democrat Party ID overweighted (6-7% over Repub)
2) Trump’s estimated true approval (90% Repub, 43% Independent) reduced to 78-84% and 35-38%.

Calculate adjusted Trump approval based on
1) PollID = pollster Party ID*pollster approval
2) Adj1 = pollster Party ID*adjusted approval
3) GallupID = Gallup Party ID*pollster approval
4) Adj2 = Gallup PartyID*adjusted approval

Sharyl Attkisson: Collusion against Trump timeline

Richard Charnin
Aug. 20, 2018

A great resource from Sharyl Attkisson: Collusion against Trump timeline

“On the other side, evidence has emerged in the past year that makes it clear there were organized efforts to collude against candidate Donald Trump–and then President Trump. For example:

– Anti-Russian Ukrainians allegedly helped coordinate and execute a campaign against Trump in partnership with the Democratic National Committee and news reporters.

– A Yemen-born ex-British spy reportedly delivered political opposition research against Trump to reporters, Sen. John McCain, and the FBI; the latter of which used the material–in part–to obtain wiretaps against one or more Trump-related associates.

– There were orchestrated leaks of anti-Trump information and allegations to the press, including by ex-FBI Director James Comey.

– The U.S. intel community allegedly engaged in questionable surveillance practices and politially-motivated “unmaskings” of U.S. citizens, including Trump officials.

– Alleged conflicts of interests have surfaced regarding FBI officials who cleared Hillary Clinton for mishandling classified information and who investigated Trump’s alleged Russia ties.

But it’s not so easy to find a timeline pertinent to the investigations into these events.

Here’s a work in progress”.

https://sharylattkisson.com/2018/07/26/collusion-against-trump-timeline/

………………

Also from Sharyl Attkisson: 55 Media Mistakes in the Trump Era

We the media have “fact-checked” President Trump like we have fact-checked no other human being on the planet—and he’s certainly given us plenty to write about. That’s probably why it’s so easy to find lists enumerating and examining his mistakes, missteps and “lies.”

But as self-appointed arbiters of truth, we’ve largely excused our own unprecedented string of fact-challenged reporting. The truth is, formerly well-respected, top news organizations are making repeat, unforced errors in numbers that were unheard of just a couple of years ago.

Our repeat mistakes involve declaring that Trump’s claims are “lies” when they are matters of opinion, or when the truth between conflicting sources is unknowable; taking Trump’s statements and events out of context; reporting secondhand accounts against Trump without attribution as if they’re established fact; relying on untruthful, conflicted sources; and presenting reporter opinions in news stories—without labeling them as opinions.

What’s worse, we defend ourselves by trying to convince the public that our mistakes are actually a virtue because we (sometimes) correct them. Or we blame Trump for why we’re getting so much wrong. It’s a little bit like a police officer taking someone to jail for DUI, then driving home drunk himself: he may be correct to arrest the suspect, but he should certainly know better than to commit the same violation.

So since nobody else has compiled an updated, extensive list of this kind, here are:
