It should be textbook wisdom by now that the press will ALWAYS release —on the day of election— a LAST-MINUTE FAKE POLLS report that says the following:
The country votes – We are worried, so we tell you whom you should vote for
According to last polls, the bad candidate lost his approval. The good candidate, on the other hand, enters the race as a favorite. The good candidate could easily benefit from us reporting this.
Election researchers stressed, however, that the race is still open. The third candidate has chances of an election victory too. But not really, no. But the good candidate is likely to win, and the bad candidate is probably going to lose.
