It is very common for political polls to have partisan leanings. So common, in fact, that poll tracking site 538.com handicaps each major pollster by their partisan lead.
For example, Rasmussen Reports has been assigned a 1.5% mean reverted bias to the right. The pollster was very favorable to Donald Trump. It was one of the few services to ever show him above 50% at any time in his presidency.
GOP pollster Frank Luntz knows plenty about elections. Luntz first came into prominence working for Pat Buchanan’s 1992 campaign and has deeply studied every election since.
Luntz recently appeared at an event hosted by Peter Mandelson’s Global Counsel. While there, he told the crowd that Donald Trump is running the worst campaign he has ever seen.

President Donald Trump quoted a tweet from a “Bernie or Bust” Twitter user on Tuesday, in which that user suggested Trump would defeat former Vice President Joe Biden in a head-to-head national election.
Although the nomination contests to determine who Democrats will choose to be their presidential nominee have not yet completed, both candidates, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and former Vice President Joe Biden, appear to be the favorites in head-to-head polling against incumbent President Donald Trump.
Neither Obama nor Bush ever had ratings lower than 49% during their presidency. Trump is at a personal high with 40%.
Trump's DACA decision puts himself squarely on the wrong side of American history and public opinion. What's new?
If the latest poll of the Peach State is accurate, then Clinton's ground game could be all she needs to steal the deep red state from Trump.
