The liberal media acts as if they are just standing in the background, casually observing what’s happening in the coutry. The truth is that they are actively trying to influence politics and a new poll confirms that most people know this.
Nolte: Poll Shows Voters Believe Media Have Divided Country More than Trump
Sixty-four percent of voters believe the media have divided the country, compared to just 56 percent who believe the same about President Trump.
A Morning Consult poll released Monday asked 2,435 voters if Trump and the national media have done more to divide than unite the country, and the media came out the big loser.
Even a plurality of Democrats, 46 percent, believe the media divide the country. Eighty-eight percent believe the same about Trump.
Two-thirds of independents, 67 percent, see the national media as divisive, while 54 percent say the same of Trump.
Considering they are most often under attack by the left-wing national media (e.g. NBC calls Trump supporters Nazis), it is no surprise that 80 percent of Republicans see the media as divisive, while only 25 percent say the same about Trump.
There are two remarkable things about this poll. The first is how tone-deaf the media are to how they are perceived by a massive majority of the country, even by a plurality of their fellow Democrats.
The only people who don’t seem to get this are people in the media. Too many of them live in a bubble.
