Harry Reid: In Complete Denial That The Polls Are Tightening

In an interview with CNN’s Manu Raju, Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) dismissed a new CNN/ORC poll altogether claiming, “I don’t buy your silliness with your $500 polls you buy overnight.”

“I don’t believe them they are not right there incorrect,” Reid added. “You only do it to generate some news. Donald Trump is a fraud.”

Reid’s dismissal of the CNN/ORC poll overlooks a series of new polls that show the presidential race tightening across the country.

A recent CBS/New York Times poll has Trump and Clinton locked in a virtual dead heat, while a recent Quinnipiac poll shows Trump has cut Clinton’s lead in half. Drilling down further, Quinnipiac’s swing state poll shows Trump leading Clinton in several key swing states.

Trump is even now leading in Reid’s home state of Nevada according a recent Monmouth University poll.

Reid’s poll complaints follow his similar comments from Wednesday when he said, “I don’t care what the polls show. We know that they don’t work.”
