Why should we believe the polls are wrong again?

1. All the polls that were right in 2016 show a different race than the polls that failed in 2016. Democracy Institute, Rasmussen, Trafalgar, Zogby, Emerson, all show a different race than the other polls.
2. The methods of pollsters. It's September and so many polls are registered voter polls. At this time in 2016, many polls were LV polls.
Also, we went through 6 weeks where we had almost no polls. This was also a period where Trump started his comeback.
3. Biden campaign has been shifting all over the place. Their behavior does not say "up 7 points nationally" or "up 9 points in AZ"
4. The media behavior. For 3 weeks the media have talked about a tightening race with no public polls to offer.......
In the last week, the media started talking about how the riots are hurting Biden in the polls. Still no public polls to show this "tightening." Today, the polls look like Biden is running away with the race. So why has the media Been panicking about the polls?
Mind you, polls that didn't exist. My theory, the polls they were talking about was polls they did not release. Rasmussen tweeted about this and Robert Cahley said this is a real problem. Yesterday, the media said the race was tightening. Today, they say Biden is winning.
The media behavior is very suspect. Also the Biden campaign behavior.
5. The Media has given us no reason to trust them again. They peddled the Russia hoax. They peddled Ukraine. The post office hoax.
Why would the media commit to honesty in an election year where the guy they have tried to destroy for 4 years is trying to win reelection?
6. We've seen the polls bias. 538 listed Trump's Emerson approval at 48% when it was 49%. That's real petty.
538 gives Trafalgar a C- grade even though they were the most accurate pollster in 2016 & 2018. That's not honesty. That is an agenda. 538 gives Fox an A+ grade when Fox is the worst poll out there.
Fox News shows the Monmouth RV polls that had Biden +4 in PA, not the LV poll.
We have seen the bias. Fox news hired Donna Brazile. We've seen the bias. The media has given us no reason to believe them. We are suppose to believe that a guy that hides in the basement is up 7 points nationally? And up 9 in AZ?
The Washington Post & NY Times lied for 3 years about Russia collusion and we're given pulitzers. They were awarded they highest honor for fake news!!!!! The media benefits from peddling lies.
Of course the polls are fake. It's good for business. It's good for careers.
Biden is rushing to Kenosha after Trump visited Kenosha...but we are supposed to believe Biden is up 8 in WI!!!!!
The Biden campaign has avoid the press as much as possible. Biden took questions today....but we are supposed to believe Biden is up 7 nationally.
Biden is spending money in MN, NV, ME, & NH. All states Hillary won. But we are supposed to believe the polls? When Obama won by 7 in 2008, he nearly won MO. Biden is up 7, but Trump is up 11 in MO. If Biden was up 7 nationally, why isn't MO competitive?
If Biden is up 7 nationally, than why does Morning Consult have Trump up 5 points in Ohio? Both things can not be true. If Biden is up 7 nationally, why is trump leading in Iowa???? If Biden is up 7, why do so many polls show Trump leading in NC?
If Biden is up 7 points nationally, than why is Minnesota so competitive????
The state polls don't say Biden is up 7 points nationally!!!
The polls are crap and the media is gaslighting!!!!!!

That is why we shouldn't believe the polls. Because of common sense.
