Poll: More Americans trust
CNN than Trump

The Hill, by Aida Chavez

Original Article

Posted By:Lucky5, 7/4/2017 10:08:03 AM

A new online poll finds that Americans trust CNN, The Washington Post and The New York Times more than President Trump, Axios reported Tuesday. But amid Trump’s ongoing war against the press, trust is largely split among partisan lines, with 89 percent of Republicans viewing Trump as more trustworthy than CNN while 91 percent of Democrats think the opposite. Among all adults, trust for CNN is 7 points ahead of Trump; among independents, CNN wins by 15 points. Trump on Sunday tweeted a doctored video of a wrestling match between himself and CNN, escalating an ongoing war of rhetoric between

Comments:
The poll was conducted by PBS/NPR, we know how much they love conservatives, and published by Axios, owned and run by former Politico people. No more money to PBS/NPR!

Online poll, so only those who visit the site voted and, I did not see the site named. If the poll was PBS/NBR it is questionable as what self respecting Republican would visit that site.

Article says the online poll was done by Survey Monkey but does not say who commissioned it. NPR/PBS did this one:

FTA: "The survey comes one day after one from NPR/PBS Marist College that reported 37 percent of all Americans have faith in the Trump administration, compared to only 30 percent for the media."

Someone didn´t like the poll showing Trump ahead so they quickly had to create one that showed the opposite, and "The Hill" published it. You decide who you are going to believe.

What is not mentioned is where "online" the poll was conducted. If held on a CNN, NY Times, Wash Post or other liberal site, the numbers would be startling that Trump was as close as he was. However, if the online poll was held on a conservative site, it would be startling that CNN won out. So much is missing from the reported results making this poll useless.

Typical crap. The Hill refused to publish the data, just some math they did on it to tell you what you should think. The data they started with is startling. Half of Adult Americans do not trust a major news organization (CNN) more than they do the subject they are covering. 50%! That´s unprecedented. Can you imagine what percentage of American´s trusted Walter Cronkite more than anyone he did a story on? 100%? The News used to be the trusted, ever vigilant, watcher of those in power - bringing citizens the truth, shining the light of... blah blah blah. Now, they are at 50%.
That makes them just another player in the game. CNN´s trust numbers look just like any other newsletter from the DNC.
NOW THAT´S NEWS!

How can one make a conclusion when so few Americans actually watch CNN. And the reason they don´t watch is because they don´t trust CNN. And of course there accent details as to the polling method. Guess the Hill is doing the usual canard to avoid telling the entire truth.

Online polls (including the "likes" on sites like Lcom) can be entertaining, but are not that informative. Without extensive vetting of the "votes" and the "voters" (which requires time, resources, and $$) such polls are easily biased and hacked.

Even the "real" polls in NOvember have problems, but at least all citizens can participate. A biometric, database corroborated, Constitutionally safeguarded National ID would at least minimize (you can never totally eliminate) the number of non-citizens voting, and voting only once.

May be fake, but it wouldn´t surprise me if a significant # of republicans liked CNN more than Trump. After all, look at all the progressive republicrats that make up the majority of the rep party. Even the ´leadership´. Which seems he11 bent on making the democrat party the majority in both houses again. They REFUSE to do anything substantive. Especially anything having to do with their PROMISES inre to tax reform and Øbamacare repeal.

All I can think is that it would take a MAJORITY of ´moderate´ and liberal (same thing) VOTERS to ELECT these linguini spine eunuchs.

The last place to go for objective facts are CNN, the NY Times and the Washington Post. Did any conservatives get invited to take this poll? How did all the morons get notified to take an online poll? More propaganda from the left.

"Trump on Sunday tweeted a doctored video of a wrestling match . . ."

Doctored? Doctoring implies there was an attempt to hide edits; but the edits were blatantly made (and even cheesily so) for effect. It was classic political SATIRE, not doctoring.

The poll in-question and this article are both classic Leftist propaganda. I pray Trump will be able to sustain through this continual, coordinated attack from CNN, NYT, WaPo, PBS, NPR, et al, without losing too much direction or momentum.

So Lefty Axios has a poll done and the Lefty Hill borrows the story and concocts its own clickbait headline. There is no pony under this pile, but I did find this in the Axios report on the poll:

Jon Cohen, Survey Monkey´s SVP, survey research, emails me his takeaways:

"A red flag for Democrats continues to be a perception that Trump is isolating himself from the GOP base with his tweets. Not only do most Republicans approve of his use of Twitter, but asked to describe those tweets, the No. 1 mention among the GOP is ´truthful,´ with ´entertaining´ in second place.”


From Mike Allen at Axios:

A stark poll by Survey Monkey finds that 89% of Republicans view President Trump as more trustworthy than CNN, and 91% of Democrats think the opposite. Among all adults, trust for CNN is 7 points ahead of Trump. Among independents, CNN wins by 15 points.

Well, duh. Missing are the poll internals. Dead giveaway that this is clickbait for the drivebys.

An email from the Berkeley administration sent to the College Republicans on Friday detailed two "workable options" they had found for the event.

Here’s the Chain Reaction Trump Could

Bloomberg, by Justin Sink, Stephen T. Dennis    Original Article
Posted By: Lucky5- 7/20/2017 8:34:42     Post Reply
President Donald Trump’s interview with the New York Times on Wednesday has stirred speculation he may consider firing Special Counsel Robert Mueller for investigating Trump’s business dealings as part of the Russia probe. But Trump can’t fire Mueller directly, according to the law that authorizes Mueller’s probe. If he tried, he could set off a chain-reaction that would throw the Justice Department into upheaval. Only the person acting as attorney general, currently Rod Rosenstein on matters related to the probe, can fire Mueller, and he’s said he won’t do it without “good cause.” So Trump would first have to purge

Arizona Senator John McCain has been diagnosed with brain cancer. The 80-year-old veteran politician was given the diagnosis last week after he had a blood clot removed. In a statement late Wednesday, doctors reveal that McCain has been diagnosed with glioblastoma, an aggressive cancer. The statement says the 80-year-old senator and his family are reviewing further treatment, including a combination of chemotherapy and radiation. The senator has been recovering at his Arizona home after doctors at the Mayo Clinic removed a blood clot above his left eye. The former presidential candidate, who has represented Arizona since 1987, went for his annual checkup, complaining of fatigue

Hillary Clinton and a firm with ties to the Democratic party setup President Donald Trump and his family in an attempt to destroy the billionaire businessman and politician according to the National Enquirer. The tabloid magazine, which has made no secret of its pro-Trump agenda, came to this conclusion after what they describe as an ´exhaustive investigation´ into the matter. These attempts by ´evil´ Hillary to bring down her rival included luring Donald Jr. into meeting with shadowy Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskyaya claims the tabloid.

Comedian and actor Jay Mohr is one of the rare actors who is open about his faith. Through his podcast, Mohr Stories, he has interviewed priests and told the story many times of his late-in-life conversion. It’s something for which the 46-year-old artist has also taken some heat, as people on social media have mocked or even antagonized him for his faith beliefs. In a recent piece for Patheos, Mohr had a message for these atheists — as well as for his fellow Christians.

20 Million Mosquitoes to Hit Fresno;

A giant technology company will release up to 20 million bacteria-filled, buzzing mosquitoes this summer in Fresno, California. That’s supposed to be a good thing. The bug campaign, which starts Friday, is part of a plan by Alphabet Inc.’s Verily Life Sciences unit. Reared by machines, the male mosquitoes are infected with a bacteria that, while harmless to humans, creates nonhatching dead eggs when they mate with wild females -- hopefully cutting the mosquito population and the transmission of the diseases they carry. The swarm’s target is Aedes aegypti, a mosquito breed that carries viruses like zika, dengue, and

The Agency for International Development (USAID) doles out millions of dollars to groups around the world, and frequently this money ends up in the hands of organizations supported by Soros. The Daily Caller has previously reported that USAID during the Obama administration gave at least $15.8 million in Macedonia to groups ran by Soros and to organizations tied to his Open Society Foundations. This led to inquiries from several

DALLAS (Reuters) - Former U.S. presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton told a forum in Dallas on Thursday that they were able to forge mutual bonds of respect and friendship because the other had been gracious in victory and respectful of presidential power. The two did not mention President Donald Trump once during a nearly hour-long discussion where they traded quips and insights. But they offered indirect references that many in the crowd of about 300 people at the George W. Bush Presidential Library took to be references to the current president. "He (Clinton) was humble in victory, which is very

A senior U.S. Republican senator predicted on Sunday that the Republican bill to roll back Obamacare would likely fail, adding to growing signs that the bill is in trouble. "My view is that it´s probably going to be dead," Senator John McCain, a senior U.S. Republican, said on the CBS program, "Face the Nation." The Senate bill, which faces unified Democratic opposition, has been further imperiled during a week-long recess where several Republican senators have had to return to their states and face constituents strongly opposed to the bill. Senators return to Washington on Monday. The Senate bill keeps much of Obamacare intact

Time for Republicans to Start
From Scratch on Health Care

If the halting, messy debate over legislation to overhaul health care has taught us anything so far, it’s that when it comes to health care, Republicans don’t know what they want, much less how to get it. After years of campaigning on the promise of repealing the Affordable Care Act, when it finally came time to act, Republicans put together a plan that looks like a stingier, skimpier version of Obamacare in the individual market, plus a rollback of the law’s Medicaid expansion (delayed until after the next presidential election — long enough that it might not happen). When asked about the

The moderator lauded Michelle Obama for her achievements over the past eight years and touched on the former first lady’s plans, but Tuesday’s conversation also veered into uncomfortable territory. It was Obama’s largest public appearance since the 2016 election — speaking in front of more than 8,000 people at the Women’s Foundation of Colorado’s 30th anniversary celebration — and she touched on personal attacks that she faced again and again. Many had the same theme. “The shards that cut me the deepest were the ones that intended to cut,” Obama said, according to the Denver Post. “Knowing that after eight

Hillary Clinton is to call her new memoir about being beaten by Donald Trump ´What Happened´, her publisher announced Thursday. Her photograph will not feature on the cover - and she will call herself Hillary Rodham Clinton. She ran as Hillary Clinton. The memoir, published by Simon & Schuster promises to deliver the story of her defeat ´now free from the constraints of politics´. It will finally break the pattern of months by containing details of her ´mistakes´ - but firmly blame James Comey and the Russians. One friend of Clinton told The Hill it would be a ´bombshell´.

At the end of a Senate subcommittee hearing on Tuesday morning, someone sitting near Chairman Susan Collins (R-Maine) didn’t switch off a microphone. Collins was recorded discussing the federal budget and President Trump’s lack of familiarity with the details of governing with a colleague — apparently Sen. Jack Reed (R.I.), the ranking Democrat on the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies subcommittee.

A transgender former Navy SEAL has spoken out against President Trump’s ban on transgender military members, saying he is preventing soldiers from doing their service. “Let´s meet face to face and you tell me I´m not worthy,” Kristin Beck, a retired SEAL Team 6 member who has fought in Iraq and Afghanistan, told Business Insider. Beck was awarded the Bronze Star, the Purple Heart and the Meritorious Service Medal during her time in the service, when she kept her gender identity a secret, according to a 2015 profile in GQ. The President said that transgender service in the military causes

Former House IT staffer Imran Awan was arrested Monday night at Dulles International Airport where he was "trying to leave the country," Fox news reported Tuesday evening. Following his arrest for bank fraud, Awan was finally fired by Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla. (Snip) Imran and his Pakistani-born brothers, Abid and Jamal Awan, are currently under criminal investigation by U.S. Capitol Police and the FBI on suspicion that they accessed congressional computers without permission and stole equipment. There is also evidence of "financial schemes that extend beyond the Capitol Police’s purview and may expand to Pakistan," according to The Daily

President Donald Trump’s Wednesday announcement on Twitter that transgender men and women will not be allowed to serve in the military “in any capacity” was not a complete surprise: Last month, Defense Secretary James Mattis announced that the military was hitting the pause button on an Obama-era plan to welcome openly transgender people into the military. But the announcement was a legal land mine. The Trump administration may soon learn that singling out a class of people for exclusion violates the constitutional guarantee of equal protection under the law. And as to those transgender soldiers already serving openly, any effort

Let’s review a few recent developments. Last week, Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary, resigned. This was part of a “White House shakeup” to get the Trump administration back on track. The new communications director, Anthony Scaramucci, would fix the White House’s “messaging problem.” Within 24 hours of Scaramucci’s appointment, the president returned to Twitter and unloaded another torrent of political bombshells, including talking about his power to pardon, even as his attorneys were denying that Donald Trump was thinking about pardoning anyone.

WASHINGTON -- Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) today warned President Trump against firing either Attorney General Jeff Sessions or special counsel Robert Mueller, saying he plans to introduce bipartisan judicial review legislation to protect the former FBI director and future special counsels. Graham told reporters on Capitol Hill that he´s "100 percent behind Jeff Sessions," who´s been the target of various slings from Trump over the past week, and referred to a Wednesday tweet from Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa): Everybody in D.C.

President Donald Trump has been attacking his attorney general, Jeff Sessions, daily. There have been brutal attacks on Twitter, in media interviews, and during speeches. Conventional wisdom is that Trump is getting ready to fire Sessions or hoping Sessions resigns. Conventional wisdom also assured everyone that Hillary Clinton would win in a landslide, the only question being by how large a margin. Trump´s complaint is that his attorney general should not have recused himself from the Russia hacking hoax and that he is dragging his feet on long overdue investigations and prosecutions: Deep State leaks; unmasking; DNC and Clinton collusion

On Wednesday night, I received a phone call from Anthony Scaramucci, the new White House communications director. He wasn’t happy. Earlier in the night, I’d tweeted, citing a “senior White House official,” that Scaramucci was having dinner at the White House with President Trump, the First Lady, Sean Hannity, and the former Fox News executive Bill Shine. It was an interesting group, and raised some questions. Was Trump getting strategic advice from Hannity? Was he considering hiring Shine? But Scaramucci had his own question—for me. “Who leaked that to you?” he asked. I said I couldn’t give him that information.

President Donald Trump’s dramatic decision to exclude so-called “transgender” people from the military is a direct rejection of the progressives’ revolutionary demand that Americans’ society should be remade to eliminate all civic recognition of the two different-and-complementary male and female sexes. (Tweets) The Wednesday decision was greeted with anger from the left, which had hoped that the military’s 2016 endorsement of the transgender ideology would push the Supreme Court and legislators nationwide to impose and establish the unpopular claim that a person’s changeable choice of “gender” is more legally important than their biological sex. If endorsed by the courts, that

Filmmaker Michael Moore says he tried to Hillary Clinton that Michigan and Wisconsin voters might lean toward Donald Trump before the 2016 presidential election but claims no one would listen. Moore appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Wednesday night to promote his upcoming one-man Broadway show, The Terms of My Surrender. But the Michigan resident took time to discuss the current political climate, saying he ´never wanted to be more wrong in my life´ when warning people about Trump voters. ´I was trying to warn the rest of the country, out here, people who voted for Obama
