Perhaps Politico might want to reconsider publishing polls conducted by pollsters with a background of extreme Trump Derangement Syndrome. Such polls do tend to be chock full of errors as was the case in the poll Politico published on Wednesday which was conducted by Democratic pollster Fernand Amandi who has a well earned TDS reputation leading to the suspicion that his polls reflect an obvious agenda.

In the case of the Amandi poll that Politico featured it shows Trump losing Florida despite polling irregularities and contradictory stats that are fairly easy to find. Before we get to the Politico story blaring that "Trump in trouble in Florida poll," let us take a look back at just one example of Amandi exhibiting his apparently incurable TDS:

September - Edition - AM - Joy

This is from the September 15, 2018 edition of AM Joy.

FERNAND AMANDI: He has called us animals. He is now trying to deny the deaths of many citizens who live with great dignity. And, Joy, this is sending a very sinister message to Trump's base. What he's saying is, "These are not people, these are not even animals, these things didn't happen." It is modern-day Holocaust denial, Joy.

Politico - Marc - Caputo

Politico’s Marc Caputo wrote:

Donald Trump is in trouble in Florida, a state that’s crucial to his reelection hopes.

Percent - Florida - Voters - President - Percent

Just 40 percent of Florida voters said they believed the president should be reelected, while 53 percent were opposed to a second term, according to a new Bendixen & Amandi International poll.

A reminder to readers that the Amandi referenced here is Fernand Amandi who in 2016 as a talk show host on WIOD radio in South Florida kept reminding the listeners every day until the election that Donald Trump had absolutely no chance of winning the election. Oh, and Amandi was terminated from that failed gig shortly after the election.
