Re: “The Fake News Frenzy

I am beginning to believe it. You know when Obama was elected in 2008 he said he would "fundamentally transform America." Eight years later I am opposed to any more transformation because his presidency will go down in history as one of the most damage a sitting President has done to our country. The problem is I don't think many of us thought we he meant was what we thought it meant.

Were we blinded by the financial collapse of our economy? Even though it only initially harmed a small percentage. The rest of us languished in the aftermath for eight long years.

The Great Depression didn't last this long. Hey, there's his legacy.....

The Worst Attempted Recovery In The History Of The US.

George S- with liberals, giving state secrets to our enemies is good, exposing liberal corruption to Americans is bad. Most liberals do hate America.

Re: “The Fake News Frenzy

dude, you just used an actual fake news site to 'prove' that the Washington Post traffics in fake news. research your sources. just because they says things you want to hear does not make them credible.

Re: “The Fake News Frenzy

Then you're as close minded as a clam. Why do you choose ignorance? That much of a hack?

Here are the numbers directly from the ABC website, found way, way at the bottom.

"Partisan divisions are 31-23-37 percent, Democrats-Republicans-independents."

Re: “The Fake News Frenzy

someguy - the lie isn't the makeup of the respondents, the blatant lie is the reporting of the results. They absolutely knew of the oversampling, did not adjust for it and reported as if it wasn't there.

This is FAKE NEWS!

Re: “The Fake News Frenzy

Fair enough - their names are right there on the poll. i do think news organizations that do polling like ABC, WSJ, Washington Post, NBC, FOX - all of those - are big, divided organizations where the polling is not done by journalists but by in-house or 3rd party polling experts contracted to do the research.

I do however find it hard to believe that they would make a poll with intentional bias built in. That is self-defeating,

However a president who got significantly fewer votes than his opponent is going to be unpopular going into office. That's just a numbers game.

Someguy - "journalists do not make the polls"

In this case, ABC, Washington Post and CNN absolutely DID make the poll with intentional oversampling of Democrats, by a lot.

Re: “The Fake News Frenzy

yes, the 46th biggest trouncing ever. and california is indeed one of the 50 states.
bad polling is not fake news. it's just bad polling. all wrong, yes, obviously. all lies, no. journalists do not make the polls. they report them, and in this case, as in every election, they reported polling from a wide range of firms.
to bring this back to the actual subject of the article - the story here is not journalistic bias, but rather what the hell these polling firms can do to be more accurate. it seems like you're seeing malice or intent where there wasn't any.

Re: “The Fake News Frenzy

A great place to start would be the admission that it is incorrect to refer to our governing model as a "democracy." We are not. We are a Constitutional Republic.

"In a republic, the government is constrained by the limitations placed on it through a constitution or charter. The term democracy is often confused with the representative democracy used in the United States. The United States is a republic, and its elected officials are bound by the protections of the constitution."

This might help. They used to teach it in 8th grade. I wonder why they eliminated it?

We are not mob rule. Our founders protected us from that. Thank you very much.

Re: “The Fake News Frenzy

Sorry to burst your bubble some guy but popular vote means nothing, absolutely nothing. The spread in California was the only reason Hillary won the popular (see below).

He walloped Crooked Hillary in the 50 states of the United States of America, and that's the point. All the journo's and their fake news polls were preaching how he didn't have a chance, how Hillary had it all locked up, just like the fake polls put out today. All wrong, all lies. Here are the facts;

Trump - 306, Crooked Hillary - 232. A trouncing, maybe not the biggest trouncing, but a trouncing none the less.

Re: “The Fake News Frenzy

While we're on the subject of denying facts.
Trump's electoral college win ranks 47th out of 58 elections. He lost the popular vote by 3 million votes (3rd most ever, most since before 1900).
Yup, he won the election, will be our president shortly. just don't call it a landslide. i'm not arguing politics. i'm pointing out facts.

Re: “The Fake News Frenzy

The numbers don't lie. But liberals deny the facts. And you lost an electoral landslide. So keep on, keepin on. You've lost all power at state and federal level. Enjoy the next eight years.
