25-66 Trump Poll

Post by sinklair » Wed Sep 16, 2020 5:07 am

Sinclair-run 25-66 basically aired a softball “Question if the Day” online poll connected to this week’s Mideast peace deal. It asked what grade would viewers give Trump for his foreign policy?

Well, 72% gave Trump an “F”!

Watch closely to see how the In Over Her Head News Director ignores all negative news and continues the company’s pro-Trump national must run coverage.

That is possible when you ask 72% of the people that are............LEFTISTS.

I think I know what RB meant. Polls don't mean squat. People on the left tend to participate in them more, it's part of their DNA to be heard at all costs. People on the Right, at least the ones who are more moderate, tend to keep quiet. This is why Trump winning in 2016 was such a shock to the idiots in the media who didn't even think the election would be close. The people who voted for Trump didn't scream their choice from the rooftops like the Hillary supporters did.. Of course, there are a decent amount of people who are Trump-Crazy, waving banners and having boat parades, but I'd wager that these folks are quite far to the right, and not a representative of the typical Trump voter. That's my take. I'm sorry if I misinterpreted what you said, R Bedell.

I have been asked several times to be part of polls and always decline.

DAC: agree that public opinion polls don’t mean squat. But why then does Sinclair air them only when it supports the conservative candidates and issues it wants to support... then ignores others when it goes against that narrative? If 25-66’s In Over Her Head News Director is going to report on polls it publishes on its own website, then report on all of them. If she’s going to pick and choose only the opinion polls she agrees with the outcomes, then it opens up our journalism for criticism of being biased. She can’t have it both ways.

Ditto.


Ask not what your country can do FOR you; ask what they are about to do TO YOU!!

Exactly what you said. They want it both ways. Cue 101 to make a David Custer joke here.

True... polls don’t mean squat.
Pretty much everything else you wrote is total bullshit.
