New Political Poll Shows Just How
Unreliable Polling Can Be

Daily Wire, by Frank Camp

A new survey from NBC News/Wall Street Journal is the perfect example of the utter worthlessness of public polling as it relates to the implementation of government policy. In the poll, which covers numerous political topics, one question stands out: “Would you favor or oppose a single-payer health care system in which all Americans would get their health insurance from one government plan that is financed by Taxes?” To this question, 47% said they “favored” such a system, 46% said they “opposed,” and 7% said they were “not sure.” However, when pollsters added a bit of specificity to the question, the

And what kind of policies would the Royal Politicians and families wind up with? Somehow, I don´t think we would see them waiting in lines with we peasants.

The poll should ask, "Would you prefer a health care system which requires you to call a government office to get permission to visit a doctor?"

That´s how Canada´s system works. Try calling ANY federal government office and see how well that goes.

Actually the favoring dropped 23% and opposing rose 19.5%.


Anyone writing about polling should know the difference between percentages and percentage points.

The question should be asked after making them aware that these "Taxes" would come out of their pockets and will also pay for someone else´s health care! Then see the support.

Great job showing the worthlessness of THIS poll, but most polling is worthless on just about anything. Unless they screen for people who actually understand BOTH sides of any given topic. People generally have OPINIONS on things they do not fully understand, that would change their minds if they were INFORMED of both the pro and con of just about any divisive issue, and also of long range consequences. But we the people are also ill informed of these finer points because Media tries to direct our paths rather than light the way.

In a perfect world, no reputable publication would feature poll results without presenting the exact wording- placed in the beginning of the first paragraph.

Historically, polling that we´re accustomed to is nothing but a crutch for the vast majority of the members of today´s lazy media. It´s requires almost as much ambition as you will find in most local TV weatherpersons.

Amid controversy surrounding Trump´s interaction with one Gold Star family, another widow shared her uplifting phone call with the President. Natasha De Alencar, who tragically lost her husband, Army Staff Sgt. Mark R. De Alencar, during his deployment back in early April, released audio footage of the condolence conversation. ´I am so sorry to hear about the whole situation.

Christmas came early for the liberal Big Three Networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) on Thursday when former President George W. Bush spoke out against the Donald Trump administration. In a disgusting display of sudden respect for a long time political foe, the network’s championed Bush’s hammering of the current president. And the icing on their anti-Trump cake was former President Obama doing the exact same thing too. “Today, the 43rd President made no mention of the 45th, but his focus was clear,” touted White House Correspondent Margaret Brennan during CBS Evening News. “He suggested that an America first mindset is

“What is the difference between a socialist and a Democrat on taxes?” asked Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) during Wednesday’s CNN-hosted town hall debate in Washington, D.C. Sanders could not or would not answer the question; “I don’t know the answer to that,” said the self-described “democratic socialist” senator from Vermont. Sanders heralded “Denmark, and Sweden, and Norway, and Finland,” falsely framing the Scandinavian countries as having a “higher standard of living” than America. America’s “free enterprise system,” said Cruz, has been history’s greatest generator of prosperity, adding, "Bernie likes to glorify socialism, but if you

House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) roasted President Trump at the annual Al Smith Dinner in New York on Thursday, joking about how he copes with the president´s use of Twitter. "Every morning, I wake up in my office and scroll Twitter to see which tweets I will have to pretend that I didn´t see later," Ryan told the dinner´s attendees. "I know last year at this dinner Donald Trump offended some people with his comments, which critics said went too far.

Lefties: ‘Nitwit’ John Kelly Is an ‘Odious’

In addition to CNN, liberal activists, actors, journalists, and trolls disturbingly berated and maligned the character of John Kelly following his Thursday White House remarks, declaring him to be an “odious” “coward” and “nitwit” offering a “bizarre,” “dishonest,” and racist statement amidst the Gold Star family controversy. Let’s take the CNNers who weren’t able to participate in the CNN Newsroom berating of Kelly immediately after he left the White House briefing room. CNN political commentator Symone Sanders played the race card, insinuating racism in Kelly’s discussion about fallen service members and response to Democratic Congresswoman Frederica Wilson (Fla.)

Broaddrick rips Lewinsky’s ‘Me too’

Former White House intern Monica Lewinsky’s participation in the #MeToo Twitter campaign to highlight sexual assault has raised the ire of Juanita Broaddrick, who still accuses former President Bill Clinton of raping her in 1978. Women across social media used the hashtag #MeToo this week to spotlight sexual harassment after movie mogul Harvey Weinstein’s fall from grace over decades of charges. Ms. Lewinsky published “#MeToo” Oct. 15, but she was chastised by Ms. Broaddrick on Thursday for her response when Mr. Clinton denied their affair in 1998. “Better late than never Monica Lewinsky’s ME TOO,” Ms. Broaddrick tweeted. “I have

It seems a little bit more than coincidental that evidence of the DOJ and FBI covering up for crimes by the Clinton Family is surfacing at the same time George W. Bush and President Obama are simultaneously campaigning against President Trump. WASHINGTON – Damning new evidence appears to show that Hillary Clinton used her office as Secretary of State to confer benefits to Russia in exchange for millions of dollars in donations to her foundation and cash to her husband.

The Senate passed a 2018 budget resolution late Thursday that will serve as the vehicle for comprehensive tax reform, the Republican Party´s top legislative goal. The measure passed 51-49, setting the stage for what will likely be GOP-only push for tax reform in the coming weeks. "Now´s when the real work begins," said Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn, a top Budget Committee member. "This is like giving us the green light to start." The House passed its own budget resolution earlier this month and will begin finalizing tax legislation next week. Senate Republican leaders said they don´t know yet whether the

The media predictably exploded this week after a Democratic congresswoman attacked President Donald Trump for allegedly making insensitive remarks to the family of a fallen U.S. soldier – accusing the president of saying callously that the soldier “knew what he signed up for.” While other Gold Star families had come out and said that President Trump was respectful when he called them – suggesting the media and Democrats were taking his remarks out of context – the media instead focused on portraying the president as a heartless monster. What the media did not do was point out that former President

RICHMOND, Va.— The Latest on former President Barack Obama campaigning for Democrats running for governor in New Jersey and Virginia (all times local): 9:10 p.m. Former President Barack Obama is bemoaning the rise of racial politics. Speaking at political rallies in New Jersey and Virginia, Obama said past prejudices the country thought it had “put to bed” have reemerged. The first black president offered himself as proof that the country has moved forward, telling the crowd in Richmond, Virginia — the former Capitol of the Confederacy — that he is a distant relative to Confederate President Jefferson Davis on his mother’s side.

Sen. John Barrasso (R., Wyo.) is asking the Department of Justice for documents related to the FBI´s investigation into the Russia-Uranium One deal, which found evidence of Russian officials engaging in bribery, kickbacks, and millions of dollars flowing to the Clinton Foundation before the deal was approved by the U.S. government. Barrasso has been raising concerns about the deal, which ultimately gave Russia control of 20 percent of the U.S. uranium supply, since 2010. The Obama administration ignored the senator´s requests for documents after the New York Times reported on Bill Clinton´s six-figure speaking fees in Moscow to a Kremlin-linked

Former President George W. Bush offered an unmistakable denunciation of Trumpism Thursday without mentioning the president by name, urging citizens to oppose threats to American democracy. “Bigotry seems emboldened. Our politics seems more vulnerable to conspiracy theories and outright fabrication,” Bush warned in remarks at the Bush Institute’s Spirit of Liberty event in New York. By chance, Bush was standing in the same spot at the Time Warner Center where former President Barack Obama made a similar plea for democracy and American leadership in late September, shortly after President Donald Trump had finished a belligerent, isolationist speech to the United Nations

Clinton Scandals: For well over a year now, the progressive left in the Democratic Party have tried hard to sell the idea that, a) Russia meddled in our election, and, b) that it was to the detriment of Hillary Clinton. After nearly a year and a half of investigating, neither appears true. What is true, and now documented, is that Hillary Clinton and her family foundation both benefited handsomely from Russian corruption.

Someone within the Obama administration’s intelligence apparatus made requests to unmask the identity of Americans named in intelligence reports on behalf of Samantha Power, the former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations. That’s what Power told the House Intelligence Committee last week during a closed-door interview. South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy revealed in an interview on Fox News on Tuesday that Power was “emphatic” on the point that someone else in the Obama administration made the unmasking requests that have been attributed to her. Fox News recently reported that Power made approximately 260 unmasking requests — a rate of one per business day
