Dingy Harry Reid whines to reporter: Your polls showing tightening race ‘are not fair’

Harry Reid says polls are unfair

While conducting an interview with CNN’s Manu Raju, “Dingy” Harry Reid, the Nevada Democrat readers of the Conservative Firing Line agreed is both evil and mentally unstable, went ballistic at the notion that polls are showing a tightening race between Democrat Hillary Clinton and GOP nominee Donald Trump.  According to Reid, those polls are “unfair” and not reliable.

“I want to ask you about your concerns about Hillary Clinton’s numbers right now,” Raju said. “She is struggling. Why do you think–what does she need to do–” he began before being cut off by a visibly agitated Reid.

“You listen to me,” Reid snarled, “You keep going back to your numbers. Your numbers are not fair. They’re not reliable.”

The Washington Free Beacon added:

When Raju asked Reid if Democrats are starting to get nervous because of the tightening poll numbers, the senator attacked the “cheap polls.”

“They’re tightening because people like the ones you work for get these cheap polls that they can keep making news on,” he said.

Raju hit back, saying that Reid uses time on the Senate floor for pedalling politics, not doing business.

“I mean, you’ve been going after him on the Senate floor where there’s supposed to be business done in the United States Senate,” he said. “You did the same against Mitt Romney in 2012. Is it okay for the Senate minority leader to use the Senate floor to overtly campaign against a presidential candidate?”

Reid said he has an obligation as a leader in the Democratic Party to “point out things that are wrong.”

Reid has also taken to the floor of the Senate to attack regular Americans and once referred to Patricia Smith, the mother of an American killed in Benghazi, as “crazy.”

Here’s video of the exchange:

Raju fact-checked Reid at the end of the interview, telling him: “We spend a little more money on polls than $500.”
