I don't think everything Trump said was truth but I don't believe the polls anymore. If I have to choose, I choose Trump over the liberal polls.
The majority? Think again.

Yes, it's factual that more voters voted for Hillary but the truth is more voters voted for Hillary in a electoral college system where the result was NOT determined by the popular vote.

Had the result been determined by the popular vote, both candidates would campaign very differently and the result would be different.
Right, more people voted for Hilary. I don't know why you're claiming I'm lying when you just admitted what I posted.

Here in my state, the state Republican party did a couple of polls, one, a month before the election, and another a week before. In both polls, Clinton was favored by 11% and 7%. (I don't have access to poll data from the other major party). Our local county poll showed Clinton up by 15% in middle October. (she won the county by 8%).

Pollsters don't fake results. It would cost them clients, and most do more then just political polling.

SInce most news organizations use two separate companies, one with Republican party leanings and one with democratic party leanings, and their methods of collecting data are usually spelled out in detail. Doesn't make any of them 100% right.

The NYT poll (a summery of a bunch of other polls) matched the pre-election polls taken in my state. They were correct (in what the polls concluded) but wrong in the election results.

No, the phrase "popular vote" commonly refers to raw votes cast. It does not necessarily imply that the votes, seen in aggregate, decide the election.

I rate your claim FAKE!!

No, it isn't like that. Poor analogy.

Go ahead and focus on your phantom "popular vote" and see how that works out in the next election.
Go ahead and deny that the total votes cast did not yield a majority for your candidate.

Did you ever notice that his daughters always have their hands clasped in front of them when he is around. I wonder why.

It's as if the people on the left learned nothing from this past election.
Many people understand that polls are subject to error. But skepticism about polls in general is not the same as claiming that "negative polls are fake news."

Actually, no the majority disapproves of Trump...His approval rating is now down to 42%....You Trump supporters are like a cult and are deluding yourselves.

Wait a minute. The polls were correct in their conclusions, but wrong in their result?

Okay, um ... wow, let me think on that one. NOT!

You still can't figure out who got the most votes?

Hint: it wasn't Trump.
