This year's contentious election left pollsters dumbfounded, once again, as many States saw Biden's projected double digit leads shrink to the slimmest of margins. I've got media analyst, David Lamb, with me to talk about this, David, you know, I got to tell you, you called this right.
Pretty close.
You, you, you, you really did. The last show you started saying these numbers are, the numbers are, they're getting thin. They're tightening up and then you gave the reasons why. So I want to ask you, how did the pollsters get it wrong again? There's no question, they blew it again. I, I'm not going to go to dress it up. You got.
You can't.
It's like you got a bunch of goofballs running this whole polling business.
An October 28th poll just days before the election Washington Post ABC news, Biden was going to win Wisconsin by 17 points. Remember that?
Mhm. Yeah, yeah.
He won by less than one percentage point.
It was going to be a landslide. A number of ways, one pollster, I think he got it right. Whenever there is a, whenever the Trump name is on a ballot, all bets are off. As to why the shy Trump voters, what they said, I think it really comes down to Trump voters do not trust the media. And I don't think they participated in the polling.
It's not just polling. Here, you're, you're hitting on, you hit a bigger issue. It's not that they don't trust, just distrust polling.
They don't trust the media anymore.
They do not, no.
And as a matter of fact, that's probably one reason that we're going to see Trump and his types move into more conservative media, because that's where people are going to go now. So that, that there's no question, the lack of trust in the media, not just the polling business, shut it down. What, what do the numbers tell us about how Biden won?
There was a massive turnout as you well know, Joe Biden has gotten more votes than any presidential candidate in history and Donald Trump, second of all time. So a massive turnout, conventional wisdom always is that benefits the Democrats. It did so once again. Biden and Trump just set numbers. The turn out in some urban areas, Pap, was just off the charts and, and Biden had to do that. We talked a lot about, you know, there's the, there was this anti-Trump vote, but would, would, was anyone jazzed for Biden, who knows what happened, but they did turn out for one reason or the other.
Not necessarily jazzed for Biden, but it, we got to get Trump out of office.
Got to. Yeah, yeah.
Okay. There was a lot of talk about the suburbs being the key to this election. We heard that all along. There were, there were a few, there were a lot of myths out there, weren't there?
Right, yeah.
Tell me about the suburb issue.
Well, well the sub, what is interesting about the suburbs is that, and I think even president Trump had this, that, you know, a bunch of white suburban moms, that's the suburbs. That's not the suburbs anymore. The suburbs in places like, Philadelphia, Milwaukee, those areas in those key States that were just so crucial, really turned out. Philadelphia for one, just as an example of what took place, they turned out huge. Georgia turned blue for the first time since 92, large part because of Atlanta. Arizona turned blue for the first time since 96, Phoenix and Maricopa counties and those, those suburban those pocket communities, as they called them this election, really turned out and really turned it up for Biden.
Okay. Does that, talk, talk about Georgia. Does that big turnout translate to the Senate races? Does that momentum? The last thing I read, the momentum doesn't seem to be there for the Senate races.
