Two news outlets ran information regarding the polls on Sunday, specifically, that the majority of Americans support the impeachment and removal of President Trump. Both The Hill and CNN ran with the story from the Fox News poll showing that approximately 50% of American’s support impeaching and removing Trump. While the articles both share some information, one shares more and definitely shows you the bias.
I must give The Hill some credit, they ran the underlying information that you need to know. That the impeachment survey was split along party lines. The overwhelming majority of Democrats support impeachment while the overwhelming majority of Republicans oppose. This is not surprising to any of us. It’s also not surprising that CNN conveniently left this detail out.
The CNN article took the chance to take a stab at President Trump over a few other details regarding impeachment rather than reporting this important detail. In fact, a lot of the major news networks are showing this bias by leaving this information out. I know that is not surprising to any of our readers, but let me give you some of the facts so you can rebut the claims from your liberal friends.
First, I fully believe that around 50% of American’s want Trump impeached and removed. It’s no secret that our country is divided. But the US electorate has always leaned more to the Democrats than the Republicans. In November 2019, Gallup data shows that this divide is narrowing, but the Democrats are still advantaged. If you look at the data, the independents also lean more toward the Democrats than Republicans as well.
Second, you also have to look at the sources where these people are getting their information. Pew Research data shows that the overwhelming majority of people still get their information from network news. News websites is second while social media and newspapers fall far behind. These network news channels and sites are the same ones that are constantly pushing the narrative of how horrible Trump is. As we all understand there is no evidence, these channels state there is evidence.
American’s are believing what they see and hear on these network channels and stations. Another recent survey shows that Americans believe the majority of traditional news media is accurate. Americans are only skeptical of those they find on social media. Over 40% of Americans trust what they hear on the news according to another survey. So no matter what the media says each night, people are going to believe it.
It’s really not difficult to see why we are in this position as a nation. If you simply believe everything you hear on TV, you will never understand the truth. The media has a bias against Trump unlike any President of the past. Sure, no President is perfect, but the way that they report and attack Trump is immeasurable. The only way to combat the charges of impeachment and misinformation is with facts.
Make sure you arm yourself with the facts regarding impeachment before you discuss it with anyone. For the record, facts are not feelings or impressions. Facts are provable without a doubt. The Democrats suppose and assume a lot in the case against Trump. The thing they lack, is evidence and facts.
