Scarborough: "We Love Working Here," But NBC Poll Showing Clinton +14 "Couldn't Have Been Cooked More"
'Morning Joe' host Joe Scarborough notes that the latest NBC/WSJ poll showing Clinton 7 points higher than she was last week, for a total of 14 points ahead of Donald Trump "couldn't have been more cooked."
"It could not have been cooked more to get the result they got," he asserted.
He added: "So last week, we were saying why didn’t anybody take polls after debates, right? And they didn’t for a long time. This NBC-Wall Street Journal poll — we work here and we love working here, we love this place — they take the poll the second the crisis starts… and they stop it right before the debate. It could not have been cooked more to get the result they got."
"I don’t think it was cooked, I think no one was thinking," Brzeinski said.
"You cook it by the point you put it," he responded. "It’s just ridiculous to say, ‘We’re going to put this at the height of the scandal, and so they get a 14 point lead.’ What do you expect?"
"These numbers are basically strange -- it is a very strange finding," he said.
