“The polls are suggesting that Trump loses in a landslide. Well, let’s see what happens in November,” Varney said. “But the main point is that the establishment in America universally opposes Donald Trump. Just the way they universally opposed leaving [the EU].”

Thank you, Twitter. Apparently Trump is trying to say the polls were wrong about Brexit and they’re wrong about him.https://t.co/s3NxvTPN3p

So if we accept Trump’s Brexit poll theory, the polls are off 4-5 points, and he still loses by a clear margin.
These guys are geniuses.

Brexit polls showed a pure toss-up going into the vote. So at the moment Trump’s analogy, if that’s what it is, is completely bogus.
