then why do candidates waste their funds commissioning "internal" polls?

Why not save cash and just use the "accurate" MSM polls?

hmmm....

 

Internal polls are agenda driven, commissioned by the candidate.... for donors or to start a narrative.  They are less accurate, but candidates want it that way to be able to squeeze money from the odnors.

The die hard Trump supporters may be very disappointed this time around. Turnout is probably going to be very high and that’s usually not good for the GOP.

 

One thing Trump definitely has is a very strong and energetic base, but the rallies and gatherings may turn out to be like everything else Trump- smoke and mirrors but once the end result comes out an empty shell. 
 

The polls were off last time, but that doesn’t mean this time around it will be the same. Even if off by 50% that still gives Biden a good lead.

 

We could be looking at Trump/GOP getting blown out.

Im confused... so if a candidate commissions an internal poll to see how black voters are thinking about the candidate... the candidate WANTS IT WRONG?

I suspect turnout will be very much higher than the actual number of people who legally cast a vote

hmmm....

Because people like me do not answer polls honestly.

Many pollsters are dishonest as well.

 

BTW, do you think candidates go by the MSM published polls or pay for their own private polls?

You should manage Biden's campaign. You'd turn that sucker around in a matter of days!
