Conservative political commentator and Tennessee Star contributor Steve Gill eviscerated the biased poll findings of PPP Polling in his regular appearance on Friday’s edition of WKRN’s “This Week with Bob Mueller.”
“A second poll in a row shows Phil Bredesen leading by a 5 point lead over Marsha Blackburn [in the U.S. Senate race]. Let’s talk about the poll first. But that’s a bit of a surprise,” host Bob Mueller said.
“There’s also a lot of problems in this poll,” Gill responded.
“They polled registered voters rather than likely voters. And the polling company that did this is a Democrat, left leaning polling company, PPP, that did polls in the battleground states last year during the presidential election, and they missed Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, and Florida, that all went for Trump, contrary to what they were saying, and vastly underestimated what he was doing in Ohio,” he added.
“The national eyes are on this race. Charlie Cook says it’s a tossup, do you agree with that?” Mueller asked Gill.
“I think it will be a close race, but I think Marsha Blackburn wins, in large part because, while Phil Bredesen may pretend to be a moderate, he’s ‘Bill-I-Voted-For-Hillary’ Bredesen. He gave $68,000 to Hillary Clinton, who lost this state by 40 points, and when you look at his first vote, it’s not going to be to cure partisanship, it’s going to be to put Chuck Schumer, one of the most partisan New Yorkers–kind of like Phil, he’s also from New York–in charge of the U.S. Senate.”
