Nigel Farage warned Americans that election surveys are being falsified

Nigel Farage warned Americans that election surveys are being falsified. The US opinion poll agencies are ready to create numbers on demand, just like in case of Brexit where the opinion polls agencies were bribed in favour of supporters of remaining in the EU.

Disproof

Polling agencies’ surveys‘ results over the Brexit referendum have not shown clear support to either exit or remain. In June there were 32 surveys, of which 16 showed a lead for exit and 15 showed a lead for remain. See here for more information. No evidence to supports the other claims.
