CNN, the ‘All-Russiagate news’ network has seen its ratings plummet as it has been caught in one lie after another. The most recent example of CNN’s deceitful reporting is a poll it conducted concerning American’s opinion of how the Obama administration worked to prevent then-candidate Donald Trump from becoming president.
Breitbart reports that results of CNN’s own poll were so stunning that the network buried the fact that two-thirds of those polled want an investigation into how the Obama Justice Department handled the Trump/Russia collusion hoax.
This is bad news for the Deep State, Democrats, Barack Obama, and the mainstream media that serves as their cheerleaders.
According to an April 25-28 poll taken by CNN of 1,007 random adults, 69 percent “think Congress ought to investigate the origins of the Justice Department’s inquiry into Russian interference in the 2016 election, including 76% of Democrats, 69% of independents and 62% of Republicans.”
Since the “origins” of that inquiry means the Obama Justice Department, CNN buried that finding deep in its own report.
President Trump has contended for two years that he has been targeted by a Democrat Party-inspired “witch hunt”. Americans by-in-large are “sick and tired” of biased media reporting, entrapment plots and Democrat collusion, and they want answers.
Six weeks ago, a mere 38 percent of adults polled said, “Democrats in Congress are doing too much… to investigate Donald Trump.” This past week, that number had jumped to 44 percent.
According to Breitbart:,“Only 25 percent believe Democrats are doing too little, while 28 percent say the “right amount,” a drop of six points from last month.”
While the Democrat party and CNN try to gen up support for impeachment, the poll shows they are losing the battle for the hearts and minds of real voters. Less than 37 percent want to see President Trump impeached but a clear majority of 59 percent do not.
More damning for CNN is that its own poll is a random sample of adults (with a sampling error of plus or minus 3.8 percentage points). This polling method almost always skews against Republicans, the reason left-leaning news outlets tend to use it.
More accurate polls, like that of Rasmussen, screen for “likely” or “registered” voters.
A poll of random adults is useful for determining trends and almost all of those are moving in Trump’s direction. Some exceptions have to with the obstruction of justice. According to the poll, “48 percent believe President Trump obstructed justice, while 45 percent disagree. Fifty percent believe “things Trump has said publicly about the investigation have been mostly false.”
The news CNN hoped we would miss is that 69 percent number. Attorney General Bill Barr and Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) have promised to investigate the Justice Department, and a majority of Americans believe it’s about time.
Such news comes after a two-year concerted effort by the media to convince the public that Obama’s Department of Justice did nothing wrong, did not act improperly, did not spy on the other party’s presidential campaign, and did not wiretap the other party’s campaign.
CNN’s poll shows that even a great number of Democrats have not been convinced by such “fake news.” The truth is becoming more evident that the real colluders are Democrats and their proxies – the mainstream media.
CNN recently reported the president’s overall job approval rating sits at 43 percent, up from 37 percent in January. This includes 46 percent of Independents approving of the president and a robust 86 percent of Republicans.
More accurate polls, like Rasmussen, don’t reflect the opinion of a random selection but rather “likely” voters. A May 6th Rasmussen poll shows CNN and Democrats are out of touch with the mood of this nation. While Congressional Democrats are in an impeaching mood, the majority of Americans are not.
According to Rasmussen, “Seventy-one percent of likely U.S. Voters think the U.S. House of Representatives is unlikely to impeach Barr, Kavanaugh or the president in the next few months.”
It isn’t till the very end of CNN’s report that it reveals its own truth, “In one point of partisan agreement over Mueller’s work, 69% think Congress ought to investigate the origins of the Justice Department’s inquiry into Russian interference in the 2016 election, including 76% of Democrats.”
It looks like “fake news” can be what isn’t said as much as what is. The left is counting on that.
