Fake news breeds fake polls

Posted by on | July 25, 2017 | No Comments

We’ve been hearing a lot about Fake News  recently. This USA/iMedia Ethics poll illustrates the extent to which relentless negative news manipulation impacts the average American. The all-caps headlines in the Monday edition of USA Today trumpets AMERICANS ARE SPLIT 42% – 42% ON IMPEACHING PRESIDENT.

We’ll focus on just four questions. The first is the one from which the headline numbers are derived. It also provides a means for the leftist Gannett publication to gauge the effectiveness of its skewed content — which is now folded inside the anorexic Arizona Republic to give it heft. By the poll’s own admission, the sampling numbers vary depending on the questions as does the margin of error.

Based on what you’ve read and heard, do you think the Congress should?…Or should not? Impeach Donald Trump and remove him from the presidency, or are you not sure?

How upset would you be if Congress does NOT impeach President Trump and remove him from office?

How upset would you be if Congress DOES impeach President Trump and remove him from the presidency?

The poll concludes with this ominous question:

Whatever your views of Donald Trump, what do you think about his chances of serving out the four years of his current term?

Seeing Red AZ also has a question:

Where was such a poll when Barack Obama was president?

Article II, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution sets the Standards for Impeachment.*

The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.
