MRC/YouGov Poll: 69% Think Media is Dishonest … 78% of Voters Say News Coverage of the Presidential Campaign was Bias

THE MEDIA HAS FINALLY BEEN EXPOSED TO BE BIAS, DISHONEST AND UNTRUSTWORTHY ...

One of the biggest losers of the 2016 presidential elections was the news media, from top to bottom. A recent MRC/YouGov poll showed that 69% of voters believe the media to be dishonest and untrustworthy, while another 78% stated that the new coverage of the presidential campaign was biased. Of those who believe the media was bias, nearly a 3-to-1 majority believing the media were for Clinton (59%) vs. for Trump (21%). Maybe one of the most telling and disastrous finding of this poll for the media was that 97% of voters said that they did not let the MSM affect or influence their vote. Can you say, the MSM is now irrelevant?

The Media Research Center (MRC) announces the findings of a new post-election poll on what actual voters thought about the media’s influence on the 2016 presidential race. The MRC/YouGov poll was conducted on November 9 and 10.

Key findings:

  • 7 in 10 (69%) voters do not believe the news media are honest and truthful.
  • 8 in 10 (78%) of voters believe the news coverage of the presidential campaign was biased, with nearly a 3-to-1 majority believing the media were for Clinton (59%) vs. for Trump (21%).
  • Even 1/3 (32%) of Clinton voters believe the media were “pro-Clinton.”
  • 8% of Trump voters said they would have voted for Clinton if they had believed what the media were saying about Trump.
  • 97% of voters said they did not let the media’s bias influence their vote.

This should be a wake up call for the liberal media, but it is most likely not. They still appear to be spewing their liberal bias agenda in their news as pointed out by Legal Insurrection. However, one thing is for certain, the American voters rejected their bias and was able to see through the lies.

Check This Out from 2016 Election Eve …. Watch Megyn Kelly Shake Her Head When She Realizes Donald Trump Will Become President (VIDEO)

FROM 2016 ELECTION NIGHT … THE REALITY SETS IN …

How did I miss this? I was a bit busy on election eve at a watch party and trying to get data from multiple outlets on line and TV that I missed the below VIDEO when it took place live. Take a good look at how Megyn Kelly, a FOX News anchor acts as she realizes that Hillary Clinton is going to lose and Donald J. Trump is going to become the next president of the United States. The look on her face and her shaking of her head was a bit telling. Hey Megyn, maybe we can play poker some time ;)

However, even before the votes were counted for the presidential election, we pretty much knew that the impossible was about to happen and Trump had a legitimate chance to pierce Hillary’s blue wall in Wisconsen when the U.S Senate race was called and Republican Johnson easily defeated Democrat Russ Feingold, 50.2% to  46.8% .

Filmmaker & Uber Lib Michael Moore on Morning Joe … Telling it As It Is Why Michigan Did not Vote for Hillary Clinton

BELIEVE IT OR NOT, MICHAEL MOORE WAS PROBABLY ONE OF THE MOST HONEST PUNDIT DURING THE 2016 ELECTION CYCLE

MUST WATCH VIDEO …. Please watch the VIDEO below of far-Left filmmaker Michael Moore as he explains exactly how Hillary Clinton and the Democrats lost election  night and how they lost Michigan. Moore should know folks, he lives there. From the outset, Moore had the pulse of Michigan and the “Rust Belt” and said, “Trump is going to win”. The Left laughed and scoffed at such a happening. But when you live, breathe and only see one side of the world from a glass bubble, that is what happens.

It is true that politics makes strange partners as I have found myself following Michael Moore much of 2015 and into 2016. I could not disagree more with his ideology, however, I can respect his point of view as he believes what he says. I will say this to the Left and the Right, if you don’t listen to all sides to get your information, news and pulse of a nation, you will wind up severely shocked and disappointed following elections.

It would appear the people in Michigan got tired of being used by Democrats and played for photo-ops and props to win political elections. The very people that voted for all of the other line items on the Michigan ballot, some 90,000 (video 1:38) refused to vote for the top of the ticket and president. They were not going to participate in a system that had left, forgotten and failed them.

At the 3:25 mark you get the perfect example of just how elitist liberals who live in bubbles just don’t get it. Some how middle-America needs to know Manhattan? UNREAL.  Joe Scarborough blasted him by saying, in Flint they don’t live in a bubble, they live in everyday America.

Donald Trump Did Better With Blacks & Hispanics Than Mitt Romney in 2012 Exit Polls … Hillary Clinton Under-Preformed

I GUARANTEE TRUMP DID EVEN BETTER THAN EXIT POLLS CLAIMS AS MANY WOULD NEVER ADMIT THEY VOTED FOR TRUMP …

As reported at NBC, Donald Trump did better in the 2016 presidential election exit polls with blacks and Hispanics than Mitt Romney did in 2012.  According to exit polls, Trump claimed 29% of the Hispanic vote on Tuesday compared to Romney’s 27% in 2012. And with blacks, exit polls show Trump claimed 8% of the vote to the previous Republican nominee’s 6%. I will state that the numbers were probably even greater for Trump s many blacks and Hispanics would never have admitted to a polling agent who they voted for. The minority Clinton firewall was breached. Why did this happen, maybe because Trump was willing to speak the truth. Trump also made a plea for the minority vote and promised to help aid the inner cities, promises that have been long made by Democrats in the past and ignored, even by the first elected black president, Barack Obama.

I had said from the outset of this election, even if Hillary Clinton garnered the same percentage of the black vote, there was no way the number of blacks would come out and support her as compared to Obama. That was just common logic. Hillary was not going to inspire blacks to vote for her like the first elected black president. In the end, she could not even manage to get the same percentage. 88% as compared to 93% for Obama in 2012. If Donald Trump does what he says in not forgetting minorities and putting them back to work, the Democrat lock on minorities may be broken forever.

Donald Trump thumbs up

Donald Trump performed stronger among black and Hispanic voters than Mitt Romney did as the Republican nominee in 2012, according to NBC Exit Polls.

Tuesday’s exit poll results have not yet been finalized but so far they show Trump outmatching Romney by two points in each voting bloc.

Trump claimed 29 percent of the Hispanic vote on Tuesday compared to Romney’s 27 percent in 2012. With blacks, exit polls show Trump claimed 8 percent of the vote to the previous Republican nominee’s 6 percent.

That means Trump — who called Mexicans “rapists” and “killers” — garnered more support from Hispanics than a candidate whose most controversial position was telling undocumented immigrants to “self-deport.”

Trump has frequently linked blacks to “inner city” slums and crime at rallies. Yet he performed better among African American voters than a considerably more moderate Republican nominee.

Hillary Clinton frown

The fail of Hillary Clinton with minorities.

Among the many questions early exit polls are raising about Donald Trump’s upset victory Tuesday evening is how Hillary Clinton underperformed so severely among black and Hispanic voters, when she was expected to overwhelmingly sweep up each demographic.

Exit polls from CNN and NBC show that Trump managed to perform better among black and Hispanic voters than Republican nominee Mitt Romney did in 2012.

Yet despite a surge in early voting among Hispanics in states like Florida, Arizona, and Nevada, which boosted expectations of a Clinton victory, she ended up winning just 65% of the Hispanic vote — down from Obama’s 71% in 2012.

Clinton, who had relied on black voters as her “firewall” during the primaries, received less of their vote than expected in the general election. She only received 88% of their vote, down from the whopping 93% who supported Obama in 2012.

An interesting tid-bit of info comes from the Daily Caller … “despite expectations that his path to victory depended on supercharging white turnout, Trump did not outperform Romney among white voters. He received just 58 percent of the white vote, a small drop from Romney’s 59 percent. Clinton, though, dropped further, winning just 37 percent of whites compared to Obama’s 39 percent”.
