Only 10 of the 17 DNC-approved pollsters released polls

I’m afraid the only source I could find for this story is a press release from one of the affected candidates, Marianne Williamson, that was posted on Twitter. However, I have no reason to believe that her campaign is lying, even if I haven’t done the gruntwork of checking out each of the seven non-pollsters individually.
There are three candidates who have met the donor threshold, but not the polling threshold: Willamson, Tulsi Gabbard and Tom Steyer. Tulsi is the only one of those candidates who I have any time for, but all those candidates should kick up a stink if this is true.

In paragraph 7, there is an interactive band running across the text. How/What is that?

It was posted as two screenshots. The band I think you’re referring to is the break between the two. This was the only form in which I could find the press release. I wanted to post a link, but it seems to have disappeared from her website.

I’ve stated several months ago that the DNC would control this primary same same as they did in 2016 (and even before then). More proof of this is now surfacing and we’ve only scratched the surface.

UPDATE: on the principle of “trust, but verify”, I went into 538 and searched for polls by the seven pollsters named in the press release. All seven returned the message “No matching polls available”. So her story checks out.

My question is how could they know which of these would release polls when unless they announce they are doing polls, which would be counter-intuitive.
I personally have no love loss for Williamson and her annoying voice being kept out of the debates. Based on what I’ve read in one of Bernie’s books, a good deal of Williamson’s flock supported him in 2016. Maybe being just a best selling author and speaker wasn’t enough for Marianne.

As I said, I am not a supporter of hers, or of Tom Steyer’s (Tulsi would be my second choice, after Bernie). However, I think she has a legitimate grievance here. Why only those 17 pollsters and not other, equally reputable polling firms?

Questions that interest me more: why weren’t these polls conducted, or were they conducted but not released?
In any event I still say that the corrptocrats are using big data to guarantee poll results.

Just like in 2016, the DNC thinks the fix is in.
