If you flip a coin 5 times, the odds that you will get the same result in each of the five coin flips is one 1 of 32. That means there is a 97 percent chance it won’t happen.

In the election, there were at least 5 states where the pollsters reported that Hillary was more likely to win. The Hillary apologists will say that because of the “margin of error” all those states were a pretty much a “coin flip”. Even if the states were a coin flip, the statistical probability that Trump would win every coin flip were very very low.

The media presented the poll numbers and the media consumers ate it up. That is why everybody, including the media was so shocked that Trump won. People are still shocked that Trump won.

The fact is that the pollsters got it wrong. Their poll results were not a reliable indicator of what was going to happen. They really didn’t have a clue. Their methodology was unquestionably flawed.
