Reprinted with permission from DailyKos

Jenna Ellis, the senior Trump campaign legal adviser who you can see smugly smirking behind just about any image of Rudy Giuliani, is also special counsel to the Thomas More Society.

Trump Campaign Claims ’Twitter Polls’ Should Bolster Confidence

Jenna Ellis, senior legal adviser for Donald Trump's reelection campaign, cited unscientific "Twitter polls" as evidence that Trump is "doing incredibly well" against Joe Biden.

Twitter polls can be answered by any user on the social media service at random and can't be relied on to accurately assessing public opinion.
