    1:23 I like cinnabons…

  2. RubelliteFae on November 14, 2020 at 8:35 pm

    The polls were "wrong" because a lot of people thought they were going to vote, only to find out they were removed from voter rolls or given provisional ballots.

  3. Eat the Rich FCKNZS on November 14, 2020 at 8:38 pm

    Polls are only as accurate as the information given… as a former republican would I lie and say I voted for Biden (or will vote for Biden) to placate Dems into not bothering to vote? *Damn straight I would* .
    *Dems need to start thinking like republicans or they will get eaten in 2024*

  4. CaraRowen on November 14, 2020 at 8:39 pm

    I love cinnabun 😂

    Trevor, I have been a fan since the 1st time I saw you! I laughed so hard at your routine and it had to be shortly after you arrived in America. You are such a great comedian. I was a bit skeptic about “The Daily Show” but I am so pleased with how you’ve relaxed and made the show your own! When you 1st began, it was a bit sketchy and you could see how nervous and uncle you were but now you are amazing but I do miss the early days of Trevor Noah. Thanks for all the laughs! Keep on keepin on!

    Polls are not good news anymore, they’re just anxiety vectors

  7. Idah Tendai on November 14, 2020 at 8:44 pm

    Polls are the worst!!!!

  8. Jacqueline Johnson on November 14, 2020 at 8:45 pm

    Not the one moment do I believe them I’m going to believe Dems are still ahead

  9. Dennis W. Conklin on November 14, 2020 at 8:48 pm

    The vast majority of minorities live in cities. The vast majority of rural people are white. The 2016 and 2020 polls were SO far off because Republicans lied to posters !!!!!! Why would SO MANY white Republicans lie to polsters ???? RACISM !!!!! And TRUMP is very much to blame for fanning the FLAMES of RACISM !!!!!!!

  10. Joe Dollar Biden on November 14, 2020 at 8:48 pm

    Every country discusses why polls were inaccurate after elections.
    Must be a global dilemma

  11. That Other Guy on November 14, 2020 at 8:50 pm

    Trevor Noah for, four years you and your team have been picking on "President" Donald Trump. What is your problem dude? Yes I did put president under quotations because he is not my president. You just jealous because Donald trump is hilarious as fuck and you and all the other comedians are jealous because he comes up with new material in a split second. You made fun of the honorable President Zuma also because you were just mad about his comedic skills. Why are you such a hater Trevor? All the guy wanted to do was make America great again and entertain some people along the way. Now I have to settle for Loyiso, Rabinowitz, Riaad and a very very very jealous Trevor Noah. M.A.G.A forever!!! P.S I am not a fan of haters and gogo should have moerd you harder tokoloshi.

  12. SLR4 on November 14, 2020 at 8:51 pm

    Cinnabons are disgusting, thank you for calling them out Trevor! 😁

  13. Venu Maddi on November 14, 2020 at 8:51 pm

    Biden won btw

  14. trixie beldon on November 14, 2020 at 8:52 pm

    “Everybody lies “

  15. Jose Rios on November 14, 2020 at 8:54 pm

    The problem is the media big time!!

  16. americanlt100 on November 14, 2020 at 8:55 pm

    More minorities voted for Trump this time than in 2016. You can "fact check" that all you want.

  17. Shane Simba on November 14, 2020 at 8:56 pm

    OK who think that if either won WW3 would have started anyway? Like if yes and dislike if no

  18. Carmen Doyle on November 14, 2020 at 8:57 pm

    As a Canadian hope u all get some rest from this shit 🇨🇦🥂🥂

  19. DeeJay on November 14, 2020 at 8:58 pm

    your not worthe any time your a joke

  20. Crystal Palsha on November 14, 2020 at 8:59 pm

    Roy is my favorite omg ❤️😂😂💯

  21. John Allison on November 14, 2020 at 8:59 pm

    Statesmanship Vs Showmanship..
    The Basement Tapes…..Joe ran a social distancing ,wear a mask ,stay safe campaign.Example 1
    Trump ran a yuge rally no mask or social distant super spreader hot mess
    Example 2
    America saw Statesmanship vs Showmanship…The Dr Fauci Basement Example simply was how Old Basement saved lives ,and earned America"s VOTES..

  22. Tyler Mills on November 14, 2020 at 9:00 pm

    Would you have a non-driver on the road? Or would you have a non-lawyer representing your case? Then why do we have a non-American commenting on America. Wake up America no I’m not a Trump supporter and I’m not a Biden supporter. You have been mentally enslaved.Take the red pill

  23. Dee Elo on November 14, 2020 at 9:01 pm

    That Roy is something else!!

  24. Keith Smith on November 14, 2020 at 9:01 pm


  25. Abram Carroll on November 14, 2020 at 9:04 pm

    Polls tell you how people say they are going to vote, not how their votes are counted. The USA doesn’t meet minimum international standards for election integrity, like most third world countries.
    The polls worked until programable vote counting machines. Programmers blew the whistle on election stealing programs after an election was stolen, so the government rolled out more of those and electronic voting.

  26. DeadDancers on November 14, 2020 at 9:04 pm

    Time for north and South America again

  27. Visor Overwatch on November 14, 2020 at 9:05 pm

    Trump > Russian Hypersonic ICBMs. Who needs missiles and an army when you can just use social Media to destroy the Number 1 country in the world.

  28. Klas Š. on November 14, 2020 at 9:08 pm

    So… Only white men have awakened a bit since 2016? I didn’t see that coming, I don’t mind telling you

  29. sixtyFive Watts on November 14, 2020 at 9:09 pm


  30. Fatmata Sanusi on November 14, 2020 at 9:10 pm

    I am disappointed so many people thought trump deserved a 2nd term. Polls r wrong because trump created so much animosity among people some folks were dishonest about supporting him.

  31. Windy3s on November 14, 2020 at 9:11 pm

    😂 😂 😂 😂 😂 😂 To funny that Mexican place killed me..

  32. Lalu Dhiya Ditria on November 14, 2020 at 9:11 pm

    I came from the future, and I would like to tell you how the tables have turned

  33. April O on November 14, 2020 at 9:12 pm

    I love you guys

  34. Rasmus Lamp Posselt on November 14, 2020 at 9:12 pm

    Honestly? They blame democrats for americans voting for a racist facist? How does that even work?

  35. Mitchell H on November 14, 2020 at 9:12 pm

    What if the polls were correct but there was serious voter fraud.

  36. Z0Lo on November 14, 2020 at 9:13 pm

    Big brain time

  37. Jonathan Hart on November 14, 2020 at 9:17 pm

    ‘Q’ told them all to lie to anyone doing polls… i would bet money on it…

  38. Gwyndolyn Foster on November 14, 2020 at 9:19 pm

    How does she know how many blacks and Hispanics voted for trump? I don’t believe the hype

  39. Rodger Moffett on November 14, 2020 at 9:21 pm

    We must acknowledge that a large portion of this country is avidly racist. 35-40% are openly so. Another 5-10% are closeted racist – they are outwardly not willing to say so. Racism is a major driving factor in their getting out to vote. Pollsters cannot get voting intentions correct when an open racist is on the ballot. Those 5-10% will not openly declare their racist intentions for voting, so they will lie to pollsters. Hence the polls will always undercount their vote when an open racist is on the ticket.
    The polls underestimated tRump support in 2016 and 2020. But they got 2018 correct. The overt racist Trump was not on the ballot in 2018, so the 5-10% did not feel compelled to lie.

  40. Mike Bircher on November 14, 2020 at 9:21 pm

    It’s not that the polls are incorrect, it’s that there are a ton of people lying. No one really wants to admit they’re a trump supporter. The immediate assumption would be that they’re unintelligent, racist, homophobic, etc., and who really wants to be perceived that way? The solution is to just lie.

  41. Cotton Farmer on November 14, 2020 at 9:22 pm

    How those democrats lookin’ now!?! We in the lead! Yeah, the race is tight, like my pants during covid, but we are going to have a new, blue, presidente! Ole!

  42. Findyification on November 14, 2020 at 9:23 pm

    because real people.hate democrats more

  43. robert caldwell on November 14, 2020 at 9:24 pm

    Yeah,regardless of which side you’re on, 50% of Americans hate you. Awesome…

  44. Derrick Silk on November 14, 2020 at 9:26 pm

    What are the odds, I pop over here for the first time and see nothing but a bunch of moronic pedo supporters. I knew I never liked Noah for a reason just had a gut feeling about this waste of breath.

  45. Elliott on November 14, 2020 at 9:27 pm

    The vote count is this off from the polls yet nobody is saying Trump votes are fake… Strange the only conversation about fraud is the other way if you think about it. Not strange exactly but it shows a difference in how certain people interpret the world

  46. p p on November 14, 2020 at 9:27 pm

    The lesson is stop ridiculing the other side. Each side has legitimate concerns, it is time to recognize them.

  47. gospel videos on November 14, 2020 at 9:28 pm

    I don’t believe the polls when they tell people of color how they voted. My question is ALWAYS …Which ballots are marked BLACK WOMEN, BLACK MEN, HISPANIC, ASIAN, or LATINO etc. that lets the polls know how a certain group did or didnot vote?? Someone please explain this to me.
