It Looks Like A Close Democratic Race In Nevada (Not True)

These are the results of a new Free Beacon / Target Point Poll -- done between February 8th and 10th of a random sample of 1,236 Nevada Democrats, with a margin of error of 2.9 points.

It looks like Nevada is shaping up to be a very tough fight between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders.


I want to apologize to my readers for bringing you this "poll". It turns out that it's a GOP "dirty trick" to hurt the Clinton campaign. This is a "push poll" by a far-right-wing website. You can read all about it here.

If you don't know what a "push poll" is, here's one definition from Wikipedia:

push poll is an interactive marketing technique, most commonly employed during political campaigning, in which an individual or organization attempts to influence or alter the view of voters under the guise of conducting a poll.
In a push poll, large numbers of voters are contacted briefly (often less than 60 seconds), and little or no effort is made to collect and analyze response data. Instead, the push poll is a form of telemarketing-based propaganda and rumor mongering, masquerading as a poll. Push polls may rely on innuendo or knowledge gleaned from opposition research on an opponent.
Push polls are generally viewed as a form of negative campaigning.
