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.
- 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.

- I hope that whoever you voted for won and if not, you will accept the outcome.
WHO HONESTLY THOUGHT THAT BLACK TURNOUT TO VOTE WOULD BE THE SAME FOR HILLARY AS IT WAS FOR BARACK OBAMA?
The NY Times is reporting that African-Americans are not showing up to the polls in early voting in large numbers like they have in the past. Wow, what a shocker!!! Okay, unless you were a Hillary Clinton “yes” minion, an “always” Hillary voter or a member of the liberal media, no one in their right mind could honestly say that Hillary Clinton would garner the same number of the black vote as did Barack Obama in 2008 or 2012. To make such a comment would be ignorant. The dishonest media created polling models based around the fact that the black vote would support Hillary like they did Obama. Really, is that racist? Now Bill Clinton may have been the first black president, Hillary is far from it. How could anyone think that blacks would not show up in greater numbers for one of their own than for an old, tired white woman? Needless to say, her dishonest actions have also probably caused many just to stay home and sit this one out. Although early voting is not a predictor of a race, Democrats have always crowed that they were the kings of early voting. Hmm, this time, not so much.
Does this mean that Trump will get a greater percentage of the black vote than past GOP presidential candidates, maybe. He has made a concerted effort for their vote with the promise of school vouchers and a New deal. However, even if Trump gets the same percentage, the volume of the vote is not going to be there for Hillary.
More bad news for Hillary
African-Americans are failing to vote at the robust levels they did four years ago in several states that could help decide the presidential election, creating a vexing problem for Hillary Clinton as she clings to a deteriorating lead over Donald J. Trump with Election Day just a week away.
As tens of millions of Americans cast ballots in what will be the largest-ever mobilization of early voters in a presidential election, the numbers have started to point toward a slump that many Democrats feared might materialize without the nation’s first black president on the ticket.
The reasons for the decline appear to be both political and logistical, with lower voter enthusiasm and newly enacted impediments to voting at play. In North Carolina, where a federal appeals court accused Republicans of an “almost surgical” assault on black turnout and Republican-run election boards curtailed early-voting sites, black turnout is down 16 percent. White turnout, however, is up 15 percent. Democrats are planning an aggressive final push, including a visit by President Obama to the state on Wednesday.
But in Florida, which extended early voting after long lines left some voters waiting for hours in 2012, African-Americans’ share of the electorate that has gone to the polls in person so far has decreased, to 15 percent today from 25 percent four years ago.
The problems for Democrats do not end there. In Ohio, which also cut back its early voting, voter participation in the heavily Democratic areas near Cleveland, Columbus and Toledo has been down, though the Clinton campaign said it was encouraged by a busy day on Sunday when African-American churches led voter drives across the state.
Note: You can probably add the youth vote as not showing up as well. They backed Bernie Sanders in the Democrat primary and in the wake of the Wikileaks emails that all but shows their candidate was screwed over by Team Hillary, the DNC and the media, watch for them to stay home too.
