RUSH LIMBAUGH (HOST): All I'm telling you is, the pattern is starting to begin here, Teddy. And now the pattern is that Republicans, conservatives, Trump supporters are now starting: the polls are not catching it, there's so much going on out there that's not being shown, the polls are wrong, they're not there, there's all kinds of action for Trump that they're not catching. And I'm just saying, we've heard this before. I'm just talking about the pattern. The pattern repeats, and people think that there's all kinds of support for our candidate that somehow is not being found and not being tabulated.


It just seems that every presidential election year repeats itself. The polls come out and it shows our guy losing handily, either by five -- it's outside the margin of error -- five, seven, 10, in this case 15. And then the pattern is that our side always claims anecdotal evidence to show the polls are wrong. In the case of Romney, we were looking at the crowds that showed up in the last week for his rallies, and they were over the top. They rivaled Trump rallies. They rivaled Trump crowds in terms of size. Didn't matter.The rallies had nothing in common with the polling data. The pattern is repeating here with Trump.


I guess what I'm saying is it's a risk here to just throw the polls out and say they don't matter because you end up creating a false reality for yourself that isn't true.
