Final RealClearPolitics Polling Averages Had Hillary Clinton Winning Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania

The final polling averages showed Hillary Clinton winning the three crucial swing states of Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin in 2016 — a fact critics of current polling point to as the presidential race enters its final stretch.

Polls are tightening as Election Day rapidly approaches, but few polls show President Trump enjoying a lead in the key Rust Belt states he carried in 2016. A snapshot of Saturday’s morning’s RealClearPolitics (RCP) average in each state is as follows:

Michigan: Biden +7.2

Pennsyvlania: Biden +5.6

Wisconsin: Biden +6.3

Since the beginning of the year, only three surveys included in RCP’s average have shown Trump leading in Michigan. Similarly, in the same time span, only three polls in RCP’s average have shown Trump leading in Wisconsin, and only one has had him leading in Pennsylvania, with two others reporting ties.

Trump has publicly questioned the accuracy of recent polls repeatedly on social media.

“The Real Polls are starting to look GREAT! We will be having an even bigger victory than that of 2016. The Radical Left Anarchists, Agitators, Looters, and just plain Lunatics, will not be happy, but they will behave!” Trump said in September:

Trump’s suspicion prompts a look at the 2016 polls, which famously had Trump losing the key swing states.

RCP’s final average in 2016:

Michigan: Clinton +3.6

Pennsyvlania: Clinton +2.1

Wisconsin: Clinton +6.5

In reality, Trump won Michigan in by .3 percent, Pennsylvania by .7 percent, and Wisconsin by .7 percent.

As Breitbart News recently reported, over a dozen polls in October 2016 also showed Clinton with a sizeable lead over Trump nationally. Several showed the former secretary of state holding a double-digit lead:
