‘Unskew The Polls’ Is Baaaack!

  • The awesome — and amusing — “unskew the polls” movement is back in the headlines after President Trump hired a pollster to help explain away some bad numbers.
  • Kate Riga dug into the crusade’s rich history. It came to the fore back in 2012, when Republicans claimed that polls showing Barack Obama besting Mitt Romney were “skewed” because there weren’t enough Republican respondents.
  • Trump ratcheted things up a notch by demanding CNN apologize for and retract a poll that showed him trailing Biden by nearly 15 points.
