WAYNE ALLYN ROOT: Fake News vs Fake Polls
By Wayne Allyn Root
Last week I wrote about why you can’t trust a word the biased, liberal mainstream media tells you about President Trump. They lie, distort, mislead, misrepresent, slander, and of course, their favorite form of deception- take one word, sentence, or paragraph out of context. These are the sneaky tricks of the “Fake News” media.
As their Marxist hero Saul Alinsky taught them in “Rules for Radicals”- the ends justify the means. In other words, anything goes, any lie is excused, to create “fairness, equality and social justice.”
As an example, all we’ve heard for months on end is how we are either entering a recession, or already in one. The mainstream media, now the public relations arm of the Democrat Party, drills into your head a hundred times a day, “Things are getting worse, the Trump economy is sinking, get ready for bad times.”
Really? Is that true, or fake news?
Against all odds, jobless claims fell this past week.
The so-called “experts” were shocked. There was a massive GM strike. GM’s suppliers were expected to lay off workers. But they didn’t. The demand for U.S. workers remains shockingly high. Everyone who wants a job, has a job. Wages are growing. And there are no layoffs, simply because in such a tight job market, companies can’t afford to let anyone go.
Then CNBC announced, “2019 is Shaping Up as One of the Best Years Ever for Investing.” They report this could be the first year in history every asset class is up double digits- stocks, bonds, oil and gold. The S&P is up 22%, gold is up 16%, oil is up 17.8%, and US Treasury bonds are up 9%.
This is what you call ”The Trump Economic Miracle.”
But sadly, I’m here to report the fake news isn’t all you have to worry about. You can’t trust any of the polls either. They are as fake as the news.
Recent Fox News and Gallop polls were used by the liberal mainstream media to prove America has turned against President Trump. Both polls were as crooked as a $3 bill.
The Fox News poll did not use reliable “Likely voters” to measure voter sentiment. They only polled notoriously unreliable “registered voters.” And they over-represented Democrats by a mile.
48% of the respondents were Democrats. But in the real electorate, Democrats make up 31% of the voters. That’s a massive double-digit swing in favor of Democrats. That’s as “fake” as polling gets.
Of course, those fake metrics produced a fake news poll that showed 51% of voters support Trump being impeached and removed from office.
Then Gallop produced a poll that showed 52% of Americans support Trump’s impeachment and removal from office.
But Gallop didn’t use “Likely voters” or “registered voters.” Gallop never even asked if these poll respondents were registered to vote. These were 1,526 random people who answered their phones. Gallop also never checked if they were illegal aliens, or non-citizens. Many of the respondents answered the questions in Spanish.
But wait, it gets worse. Gallop also weighted the poll in favor of Democrats. As an example, each Republican who answered was only counted as 85% of a respondent, while Democrats who responded were counted as 107% of a respondent. The Gallop poll also over-weighted non-whites by 6 percent over actual numbers in the electorate.
Now you know why the results came out so skewed against President Trump. Pure fake news. If you poll more Democrats, of course the results will be worse for Trump.
I have the answer. My new “Root Poll” will poll only Republicans, conservatives, patriots, gun owners and business owners at random. I’m betting my poll will show 90% of the electorate supports Trump. That’s proof that Trump will be re-elected, right?
My “Root Poll” makes about as much sense as the fake news polls you’ve been force-fed by the fake news media.
