Today on Fox News’ Bill Hemmer Report, Donald Trump’s senior campaign advisor Steve Cortes said that national polls don’t decide elections, and look better for Democratic nominee Joe Biden due to an oversampling of Democratic voters.

“Cortes said, “I think polls matter.  We pay some attention to them.  It’s very critical to look at the inputs into these polls, because the inputs often determine the final output numbers.  And many of these polls have massive oversampling of Democrats.”

In the segment, Hemmer refers to a recent Washington Post-ABC News poll that shows Biden with a 12-point lead over Trump. The report had a sample size of 1,014 adults with a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percent. 

Among those who participated in the poll, 30 percent identified as Democrat, 27 percent identified as Republican and 35 percent identified as independent voters.  Cortes said he hadn’t looked into this particular poll yet.

Cortes pointed to polling data in battleground states and said that it shows the election is a toss-up.  A recent poll released by Baldwin-Wallace University shows the President trailing Biden in Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania, three battleground states he had won in the 2016 election. The RealClearPolitics average of polls shows Biden with a nearly 5-point lead in the sampling of battleground states.

During the interview, Hemmer asked Cortes about Trump’s health following his recent coronavirus diagnosis. The campaign adviser said the president was in excellent health saying the President is “100 percent.” 

And it was reported by White House physician Sean Conley on Monday President Donald Trump has tested negative for Covid-19 on consecutive days

When asked if it was true that Trump wanted to host a rally every night day until Election Day, Cortes remained coy saying, “I can’t speak beyond this week’s schedule, but this week yes, every day.”
