Imagine polls don't exist. Show me evidence Hillary is winning?— Bill Mitchell (@mitchellvii) August 8, 2016
Mitchell is a Charlotte, N.C.-based radio host whose program is streamed on YourVoiceRadio.com Sundays through Thursdays at 8 p.m. Eastern.
But pollster Frank Luntz pointed out that Mitchell has embraced pro-Trump polls in the past.
Mitchell's contention, made in a series of tweets, appears to be that polls are not correctly weighted by party affiliation.

Mitchell, who has more than 67,000 Twitter followers, also argues that Trump's social media following and the size of crowds at his campaign rallies should be taken into consideration when judging the state of the presidential race between Trump and his Democratic Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonNo Hillary — the 'Third Way' is the wrong way The dangerous erosion of Democratic Party foundations The Hill's Morning Report - Presented by Facebook - Democrats see victory in a voting rights defeat MORE.
