Tempe Political Consultant Responds To Trump 'Voter Suppression' Tweet
In wake of the controversy surrounding the election, President Donald Trump tweeted that a poll shown by ABC News and the Washington Post indicating he was down by 17 points in Wisconsin before Election Day was an “illegal suppression poll."
The Fake Pollsters at @ABC/@washingtonpost produced a possibly illegal suppression Poll just before the Election showing me down 17 points in Wisconsin when, in fact, on Election Day, the race was even - & we are now preparing to win the state. Many such “deplorable” instances!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 11, 2020
Tempe political consultant Mike O’Neil of O’Neil and Associates says that is simply not true.
“This has been looked at for 40 years. There’s never been a single documented case where the polls impacted the vote,” O'Neil said.
Trump has yet to concede despite Democratic candidate Joe Biden capturing 270 electoral votes to win the 2020 presidential election.
