Donald Trump Leads in New in New York Times/CBS Poll … The Donald Up to 35% on Terror Concerns in America
THE MSM JUST DOESN’T GET IT AS TRUMP LEADS IN NYT/CBS POLL …
Like him, hate him or those that don’t understand him … Donald Trump speaks to many Americans and for many Americans, especially when it comes to terrorism and the safety of the United States. This as Obama has dithered for 7 years and made America less and less safe.
According to the most recent New York Times/CBS poll, Donald Trump is in the lead, mainly due to new terror concerns in the United States. As stated by Hot Air, “Americans are more fearful about the likelihood of another terrorist attack than at any other time since the weeks after Sept. 11, 2001.” According to the poll, 35% of Republican primary voters support Trump, up 13 points since October, and his highest level of support in CBS News polling. Why the drastic increase? Because Donald Trump is willing to say what many Americans are thinking and too many PC establishment and gutless Republicans are unwilling to. Like it or not, as the MSM is just befuddled by Trump’s continued rise, the American people are afraid and terrorism is at the forefront of the issues as Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Democrats, the MSM and establishment republicans all look weak and more concerned about being politically correct than they do about the safety of everyday Americans.
Americans are more fearful about the likelihood of another terrorist attack than at any other time since the weeks after Sept. 11, 2001, a gnawing sense of dread that has helped lift Donald J. Trump to a new high among Republican primary voters, according to the latest New York Times/CBS News poll.
In the aftermath of attacks by Islamic extremists in Paris and in San Bernardino, Calif., a plurality of the public views the threat of terrorism as the top issue facing the country. A month ago, only 4 percent of Americans said terrorism was the most important problem; now, 19 percent say it is, above any other issue.
Mr. Trump, who has called for monitoring mosques and even barring Muslims from entering the United States, has been the clear beneficiary of this moment of deep anxiety. More than four in 10 Republican primary voters say the most important quality in a candidate is strong leadership, which eclipses honesty, empathy, experience or electability. These voters heavily favor Mr. Trump.
The survey was largely conducted before Mr. Trump’s proposal, announced Monday, to temporarily block Muslims from entering the country.
Even Hillary Clinton now recognizes something stirring in the electorate that Mr. Trump had clearly tapped into. And this is where politicians get it wrong, their handlers get it wrong and the media gets it wrong. Trump did not focus poll to see what to say or what topic to talk about, the political outsider said what was on his mind and what was obviously on the mind of the American people.
