Chuck Todd got visibly flustered this afternoon as Donald Trump communications advisor Jason Miller strongly defended the validity of unscientific online polls.
Miller touted those polls showing Trump won the debate, and Todd shot back, “Those are fan polls, man!”
Yet Miller kept insisting over and over and over that these polls were not only a “snapshot” of what people were thinking, but were more accurate than the actual scientific polls (showing a Hillary Clinton win) because––as he argued––those polls were supposedly influenced by the post-debate media coverage.
Todd cried, “There are computer programs that help refresh! All you have to do is like empty your history and you get to vote again! They’re not real, Jason!”
And then, a minute later, they literally had the following exchange:
TODD: How come he didn’t win these debate polls?
MILLER: He did win the debate polls.
TODD: No, he didn’t.
MILLER: Yes, he did.
Oh, and as for that “Google is suppressing bad Clinton news” conspiracy Trump threw out last night, Todd asked Miller for concrete evidence. He said Breitbart picked it up and added, “Makes you wonder.”
