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!
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.
Ask me how much I trust their fake polls. What? I´m supposed to trust CNN for the facts, because a bunch of idiots trust them? The idiots are the problem.
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.
Senate Republicans pushing to replace Obamacare with state block grants are making real noise before their window to act closes, insisting they are just one or two votes shy and that President Trump can nudge their last-gasp bill to victory. “We are thinking that we can get this done by Sept. 30,” Sen. Bill Cassidy, the Louisiana Republican who co-wrote the bill with Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, said Friday. Republican leadership seemed to greet the bill with a shrug when it was introduced last week, yet Mr. Cassidy said the idea “took off” during a Thursday luncheon that focused on health care.
Partisan conflict is not new, nor is GOP internal dissent. What’s new is in-fighting among the elites. The Left-Wing Trump Haters About a third of the Democratic party (15–20 percent perhaps of the electorate?) loathes Trump, from reasons of the trivial to the fundamental. The hard-leftist hatred is visceral; it is multidimensional; and it is unalterable. Trump is rich, crass, showy, a white male, and 70. As the anti-Obama, he punches every progressive button in existence. A candidate like Trump was not supposed to exist any longer in the 21st-Century Age of Obama, much less should he have ruined the
Sebastian Gorka is resigning his post as Deputy Assistant to President Trump, multiple sources familiar with the situation have told The Federalist. In a blunt resignation letter, the national security and counterterrorism expert expressed dissatisfaction with the current state of the Trump administration. “[G]iven recent events, it is clear to me that forces that do not support the MAGA promise are – for now – ascendant within the White House,” Gorka wrote. “As a result, the best and most effective way I can support you, Mr. President, is from outside the People’s House.” Gorka’s letter expressed unhappiness with the direction the Trump
Donald Trump needs to put some points on the board, and fast. Health-care reform is dying. Every time the White House announces a new Infrastructure Week, Trump gets bored by mid-morning on the first day and goes to Twitter to churn the political-media cesspit. And so there is now a scramble. Jared Kushner has flown to the Middle East to stand there and take credit in case an improbable peace breaks out. There are new efforts on tax reform. And in the background, Trump aides and other executive-branch employees are talking themselves into an immigration deal, a deal that no
Jerry Lewis, the comedian and filmmaker who was adored by many, disdained by others, but unquestionably a defining figure of American entertainment in the 20th century, died on Sunday morning at his home in Las Vegas. He was 91. His death was confirmed by John Katsilometes, a columnist for The Las Vegas Review Journal, who spoke to family members. Mr. Lewis knew success in movies, on television, in nightclubs, on the Broadway stage and in the university lecture hall. His career had its ups and
President Trump refused to say whether he had confidence in his Chief Strategist Steve Bannon, instead telling reporters ´we´ll see´ when asked about the aide´s future White House employment. ´I like Mr. Bannon. He´s a friend of mine, but Mr. Bannon came on very late,´ Trump pointed out, noting he beat 17 Republican rivals, ´and I won all the primaries,´ before the ex-Breitbart head signed on to the president´s campaign. A number of news reports and sources inside the West Wing have said the nationalist Trump-whisperer´s political hourglass is quickly losing sand. The president´s remarks at a heated Trump Tower
Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s convening of a grand jury to investigate possible Trump campaign collusion with Russia could actually turn out to be good news for the president. Good because it signals that there’s an end in sight to the question of who did what in 2016. The first six months of the Trump administration have been plagued by a ceaseless stream of leaks — Michael Flynn met with the Russians! Jeff Sessions met with the Russians! Donald Trump Jr. met with the Russians to get the dirt on Hillary Clinton, and he brought Jared Kushner and Paul Manafort with him! Now,
Two members of the Senate Judiciary Committee are moving to protect Special Counsel Robert Mueller´s job, putting forth new legislation that aims to ensure the integrity of current and future independent investigations. Republican Sen. Thom Tillis of North Carolina and Democratic Sen. Chris Coons of Delaware plan to introduce the legislation Thursday. The bill would allow any special counsel for the Department of Justice to challenge his or her removal in court, with a review by a three-judge panel within 14 days of the challenge. The bill would apply retroactively to May 17, 2017 — the day Mueller was appointed by Deputy
WASHINGTON — Gov. Jim Justice of West Virginia, a Democrat who was elected last year even as President Trump carried the state by 42 points, is expected to announce Thursday night at a rally with Mr. Trump that he is changing parties, according to three sources familiar with the plans. Speaking to reporters in the White House Thursday, Mr. Trump promised “a very big announcement” at a gathering in Huntington, W.V., that is expected to draw thousands of supporters from across Appalachia, a region that gave Mr. Trump some of the largest margins of his election.
Oscar-nominated actor, director and playwright Sam Shepard has passed away aged 73. The Broadway legend died peacefully at his home in Kentucky surrounded by his children and sisters on Sunday after a lengthy battle with Lou Gehrig´s Disease. Shepard received the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1979 for his play Buried Child and is the author of 44 plays as well as several books of short stories, memoirs and essays. He was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor in 1983´s The Right Stuff for his portrayal of pilot Chuck Yeager.
After coming under public pressure for giving the College Republicans the runaround on a venue for a scheduled event featuring Daily Wire editor-in-chief Ben Shapiro, the University of California Berkeley announced on Thursday that they had found some "workable options" for hosting the conservative author and speaker. On Friday, the university finally reached out to the College Republicans to present two venue options for the Sept. 14 event. An email from the Berkeley administration sent to the College Republicans on Friday detailed two "workable options" they had found for the event. The administration said that while one of the venues, Zellerbach,
One click — and I had bought a vintage Rolls-Royce. Another click — and I bought a second. Just like that. It might sound like something from your wildest dreams, but this was just an average evening for me. Successful, wealthy and at the pinnacle of my career, I had every luxury you could imagine. A top executive at Google, I had personally started close to half of the company´s worldwide operations. And even before I made it big at Google, you could certainly say that I was at the top of the tree. A former stock market trader, I had
A Texas woman has been getting ridiculed online for being “too sensitive” after she blasted the arts-and-crafts chain Hobby Lobby for selling faux raw cotton stalks — which she found offensive. “This decor is WRONG on SO many levels,” Daniell Rider posted on Facebook this past Thursday, along with a photo of the phony textile plants. “There is nothing decorative about raw cotton…A commodity which was gained at the expense of African-American slaves,” she said. “A little sensitivity goes a long way. PLEASE REMOVE THIS ‘decor.´” Rider, who is black, appeared to take the picture of the cotton herself
Special Counsel Robert Mueller´s team is reaching back more than a decade in its investigation of Paul Manafort, a sign of the pressure Mueller is placing on President Donald Trump´s former campaign chairman. The FBI´s warrant for a July search of Manafort´s Alexandria, Virginia, home said the investigation centered on possible crimes committed as far back as January 2006, according to a source briefed on the investigation. The broad time frame is the latest indication that Mueller´s team is going well beyond Russian meddling during the campaign as part of its investigation of Trump campaign associates. Manafort,
Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” while reacting to President Donald Trump’s speech at United Nations, former White House press secretary for the Obama administration Josh Earnest said the overall speech lacked “coherence,” and Trump mocking North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un was “foolish.” Earnest said, “Having sat in the hall of the United Nations where the president of the United States delivers an address for gathered world leaders — that’s something I did for the last three years—what you know world leaders are looking for in that room is a coherent strategy for taking on the biggest challenges around the
Hillary Clinton´s "What Happened" had a big debut. Clinton´s book about her stunning loss in 2016 to Donald Trump sold more than 300,000 copies in the combined formats of hardcover, e-book and audio, Simon & Schuster told The Associated Press on Wednesday. The book´s hardcover sales of 168,000 was the highest opening for any nonfiction release in five years, according to NPD BookScan, which tracks around 85 percent of retail print sales. Mark Owen´s "No Easy Day," a 2012 memoir about the killing of Osama bin Laden, sold more than 250,000 copies in its first week. Sales for "What Happened"
United Nations - The Latest on President Donald Trump and North Korea (all times local): 8:00 a.m. Former Secretary of State John Kerry says President Donald Trump´s United Nations speech may have put America in isolation and danger. Appearing on MSNBC´s "Morning Joe" show Wednesday, Kerry criticized Trump´s harsh rhetoric against North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Kerry said, "You have to ask yourself: Is America safer because of ´rocket man?" He was referring to Trump´s characterization of Kim. Kerry said that kind of harsh language will make it harder for the United States to engage in diplomacy on
Climate change poses less of an immediate threat to the planet than previously thought because scientists got their modelling wrong, a new study has found. New research by British scientists reveals the world is being polluted and warming up less quickly than 10-year-old forecasts predicted, giving countries more time to get a grip on their carbon output. (Snip) The discrepancy means nations could continue emitting carbon dioxide at the current rate for another 20 years before the target was breached, instead of the three to five predicted by the previous model. “When you are talking about a budget of 1.5
In Federalist No. 68, his pseudonymous essay on “The Mode of Electing the President,” Alexander Hamilton wrote that the Electoral College could shield the United States “from the desire in foreign powers to gain an improper ascendant in our councils.” (Snip) Hamilton and his colleagues never could have envisioned a year like 2016, when an enemy state—Russia—was able to manipulate America’s election process with stunning effectiveness. But it’s clear the national security rationale for the Electoral College is outdated and therefore it should be retired. Simply put, it enables foreign powers to more easily pierce the very shield Hamilton imagined
Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown of California compared President Donald Trump supporters to prehistoric cave dwellers Monday during a New York climate event. Brown, an outspoken Trump critic, issued an usually harsh derision of Trump supporters after dismissing the president’s rhetoric on climate change science and U.S. policy toward North Korea as “stupid and dangerous and silly.” “They’re both kind of very similar,” Brown said. “You should check out the derivation of ‘Trump-ite’ and ‘troglodyte,’ because they both refer to people who dwell in deep, dark caves.” Brown attended the climate event, which coincided with the U.N. meeting in New York,
Liberal Brown University is set to offer segregated dinners for black and Muslim students on the tail of recent Antifa protests that have turned violent over the last few months. Purporting to offer “racial reconciliation,” Brown administrators took a $300,000 grant from the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) to “break down racial hierarchies and create a positive narrative about race in the community,” the College Fix reported. The money was supplied by donations by liberal organizations such as the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, and Newman’s Own Foundation. There will be two separate segregated “dinner discussion groups,” one for African
Filmmaker James O´Keefe said on Monday that Project Veritas will be releasing the results of one of the largest investigations the organization has ever conducted. The Project, said O´Keefe, will lead to people being fired. "In the coming weeks, you’re going see one of the biggest investigations this organization has ever done," O’Keefe said. "It’s a continuation of American Pravda series. It’s aimed at the media. We’re going after their holy grail." "We have tripled our journalists in the field," he continued. "They are not even here, they are out there everyday. It’s gonna be big, it’s gonna be massive.
U.S. investigators wiretapped President Trump’s campaign chairman Paul Manafort, according to a report by CNN that vindicates the president’s earlier claims, which were mocked as a conspiracy theory. President Trump had tweeted on March 4: “Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my “wires tapped” in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!” (Tweet) Breitbart News editor Joel Pollak had reported the day before Trump’s tweet that the Obama administration “sought, and eventually obtained, authorization to eavesdrop on the Trump campaign: continued monitoring the Trump team even when no evidence of wrongdoing was found.” Trump’s claim,
Hillary Clinton on Monday would not rule out the possibility of challenging the results of the 2016 presidential election, saying it’s clear the Russians influenced the outcome and that the legitimacy of President Trump’s victory could be called into question as congressional and independent probes into Russian involvement move forward. (Snip) “I wouldn’t rule it out,” she said, though she quickly admitted there’s virtually no legal path forward, and that challenging election results at this point would be unprecedented. “There are scholars, academics, who have arguments that it would be [possible], but I don’t think they’re on
