Matt Mackowiak Says Texas Tribune Polls Not Accurate [INTERVIEW]
On Monday's edition of The Chad Hasty Show, Washington Times columnist and political analyst Matt Mackowiak joined the broadcast to talk about current events and news in the nation and the state of Texas.
With early voting starting tomorrow (Tuesday February 20, 2018), Mackowiak and Hasty discussed the Texas primary election candidates, endorsements and polls being released, as well as President Donald Trump's "tweets" from this weekend about the Russian investigation.
While speaking about the recent poll released by the University of Texas and Texas Tribune, Mackowiak said,
I always have to say this when the subject of the Texas Tribune polls comes up: I respect a lot of their journalism, and like a lot of the people over there. But the polling that they do is really pretty screwy. It's not a real poll. They have a panel of VIPs that they poll, and then they weight that back so it looks like the electorate. It's a very screwy methodology. It's so bad that the Associate Press refuses to report on their polling.
