Is This Why Biden Got High Polling Numbers in South Carolina?
— SC closes down 1/3 of its polling locations — 131 polling stations have been relocated
Anyone else out there perpetually scratching their heads wondering why America repeatedly is now internationally rated as a “flawed democracy?”
If you’re a South Carolina resident, reading this article might be your first notice that this actually happened! Others might recall closing and relocating polling locations was a proven-true tactic used by Clinton national and state insiders all throughout the 2016 Primaries (see 2016 — Sanders v. Clinton in Arizona!).
This act of cruelty heaped upon South Carolinian voters has not even been publicized. Many voters will only discover their polling location has been changed or discontinued when they actually go to vote. Nice, huh!

2020 Polling in General
Interestingly, all throughout this past year, Joe Biden had been getting extremely high polling numbers despite a lackluster campaign, poor debate performances, numerous gaffes and mistakes and with virtually no presence on social media where supposedly 90% of all Americans are hooked up. I’m not aware of Biden winning a single one of the very many online polls. Are you? I don’t even know a Biden supporter. Do you?
Think about it. Keeping Biden jacked up in the polls was easy because he was Barack Obama’s vice president for eight years and he therefore held great name recognition, especially among black voters. Any true expert examining many of the polls over the past year would discover often the sample demographics of the polling included older voters who’d be more likely to support Biden, this coupled with sometimes favoring landlines over cellphones. Is it possible to create a poll that would bring forth a desired effect? You bet!
Does South Carolina hold a history of hanky-panky shenanigans with its voting system? Is this why Biden appears at the top in SC? The below is not only worrisome, it is telling:

Given that Bernie Sanders performed so well by finally taking the lead in polling just ahead of the start of the early voting states, and winning the popular vote in the first three contests, Biden’s overall polling numbers have comparatively become miserable. But right now, in South Carolina, Biden now appears as the cream of the crop often polling with double digits ahead of Sanders and the others. Biden’s firewall, as media pundits describe it.
So is it possible that Biden, who has been nothing but downtrodden throughout the entire 2020 campaign season, is getting his very high pre-South Carolina polling numbers because there exists some measure of control over the SC voting system? It’s a good question because previous election results and the Reuters reporting noted above do not breed comfort.
Biden polled unusually high throughout much of the yearlong campaign until shortly before the Iowa Caucus when polls more accurately began reflecting a surge for Bernie Sanders. Why wouldn’t the polling reflect this give Bernie was doing well anyway, what with again drawing huge audiences, having a top-notch field organization and breaking campaign records for raising money coupled with the number of donors.
So why was Bernie so slow to show in the 2020 polling? Why was Biden always so up and Bernie always so down? Of course, the crowded field of two dozen candidates certainly helped to cloak and confuse what was really going on polling-wise. And Biden, not Sanders, has always been the favorite among the Oligarchy Derby enthusiasts.
Think back to the controversial 2016 Democratic primaries. Midway throughout the campaign season, with Bernie drawing huge sensational crowds and Clinton showing only modest gatherings, the exit polls were discontinued. Why? They didn’t match with the actual results of the voting. Of course, in 2020 it’s harder to cancel the exit polling right out of the gate, when the election season first begins. In other words, in 2020, try though you may, you can’t hide Bernie and his progressive movement!
The Iowa Caucus arrived and for the first time in its 76-year history, the Des Moines Register Poll — the gold standard of all Iowa polling — mysteriously and suddenly got canceled the day before the Caucus. When the caucus took place Bernie won the first and the second vote, but mysteriously, despite his lead in both popular votes, Bernie somehow placed one-tenth of a point behind PeteButtigieg in the awarded state convention delegates.
Of course, the Iowa final results were skewered largely due to a purported breakdown of a computer app developed by Clinton-Buttigieg insiders. Over the next several days the insider media showered praiseworthy comments over the South Bend, Indiana mayor, while attenuating Bernie — deprived of his victory speech — was left in a grumpy ‘I-need-to-complain’ status. Were those main media pundits sickening throughout this period of time? You bet!
By the way, the Associated Press still hasn’t declared a winner in Iowa!
New Hampshire Primary
After the widely accepted failed Iowa Caucus came the nation’s first primary in New Hampshire, again with Bernie holding a clear lead in the polling. The days ahead of the voting saw media pundits kept glorifying how great Buttigieg and Amy Klobachur were performing while defying expectations. They also did their damnedest to help again boost Liz Warren who had a good debate performance. Biden was always cast as: ‘Poor Joe, but he’ll catch on in South Carolina.’
New Hampshire again proved Bernie Sanders as the top vote-getter. How could he not be as everything showed he would be going into the election? It’s too hard to hide the obvious, especially since Bernie was from next-door Vermont. Still, however, it seemed he got low-balled. I find the below non-mainstream reporting and analysis interesting. Do you?
How Buttigieg Stole a Delegate in New Hampshire in the Exact Way We Predicted
The mainstream media, predictably, has taken the focus off of Sanders following his narrow victory in New Hampshire to…
As a side note, I grew up in New Hampshire along the seacoast. I was shocked watching the NH election returns come in and observe Buttigieg performing so well in Rockingham County, a county where I once served as a state representative. It’s hard for me personally to acknowledge Bernie didn’t outright win this county!
Bernie’s campaign organization in Nevada was second to none. Nevada had a very strong Hispanic voter representation, a strong demographic group backing Bernie nationally. It is also a state with strong union representation where Bernie has always polled strongly among rank and file members, often despite union leadership which tends to side with the DNC.
The political operatives of the party and the powerful Clinton media connections hit Bernie with everything they could: Russiagate, his Medicare plan wasn’t good for unions, Bernie’s a commie and likes Castro, renewed Bernie Bro allegations, criticism about his online supporters and anything that resembled a kitchen sink … they smack dab hurled it at him!
But unable to do in the Nevada Caucus what they did in Iowa Caucus, Bernie blew all candidates out of the water winning the crowded field with 47% of the vote!
