NEW POLL: Americans FED UP With Media Assault On Trump
Leftists in America remain delusional. They remind me of a fighter who had won so much that when he finally got knocked out on his feet, his hand went up in victory automatically.
The only thing that saved him from more devastation was the referee stepped in. Well, there is no referee in politics. You must self-regulate. Or the public will do it for you.
Despite the onslaught by the media and other establishment Leftists, Trump continues to gain in status with the American public.
Things don’t look good for the Left, at least according to Investors Business Daily:
The mainstream media’s open hostility to President Trump may be starting to backfire, according to the latest IBD/TIPP poll.
The poll found that 55% of the public says they’ve grown “weary from the media’s persistently negative coverage of President Trump.” A roughly equal share (54%) also believe that the news media “has assumed the role of the opposition party, constantly opposing the president and his policies at every turn.”
… A study by the nonpartisan group Media Tenor found that only 3% of network news stories in the first month of the Trump administration could be described as positive. Of the rest, 43% were deemed negative, and 54% neutral. That’s a stark contrast to the overwhelmingly positive coverage of the early Obama administration, despite the fact that Obama had his own share of early stumbles.
These polls tend to mimic any reasonable poll on President Trump’s approval rating and job performance. Moreover, you can bet that the actual numbers are actually better.
One might presume that if the media were actually balanced, President Trump would likely have approval ratings in the 80 percent range.
In the Era of Obama, the media got used to faking the numbers. The disastrous policies of Barack Obama forced them to grade on a curve. How does the Left could watch the collateral damage caused by Obama, and yet look the other way? They pretended that things were great, and then double-down on disaster, putting all their chips on Hillary Clinton.
A summary that should have Leftist concerned to their rotten cores showcases the result of the media assault:
- 55 percent of independents and 54 percent of moderates are wearing of constant negativity.
- Worse yet, 62 percent of independents are “not confident” the media can cover Trump fairly.
- Finally, and perhaps the most disturbing of all the poll results declares that 54 percent of independents believe the media has become the opposition party.
I predict that within two years of the Trump administration, America will have a very different and far more fair media.
