There is Reality…and Then There is the Latest Fox News Poll Claiming Biden is More Trustworthy Than Trump

Swing down Chariot stop and let me ride.

I have just seen everything.

A hit piece featuring a poll showing corrupt, demented Sleepy Joe Biden being more trusted and more popular than President Donald J. Trump featuring what is obviously a Democrat-heavy survey sample of 1,207 imbeciles… is being highlighted on FoxNews.com!!!

Most voters are concerned about the pandemic and the economy, so when they favor Joe Biden on coronavirus and Donald Trump has a narrow edge on pocketbook issues — it makes for a tight race for the White House.

The latest Fox News Poll finds voters trust Biden to do a better job than Trump on health care by 17 points, coronavirus by 9, and relations with China by 6.  Trump is trusted more on the economy by a slim 3-point margin.

“That might be the election in a nutshell,” says Democrat Chris Anderson, who conducts the poll with Republican Daron Shaw.  “Trump has a slight advantage in a narrow debate about economic recovery, but a debate about coronavirus or public health more broadly benefits Biden.”

Eighty-eight percent are concerned about coronavirus spreading and 78 percent feel the economy is in bad shape.

There has been a seismic shift in views on the economy since the pandemic.  In January, voters rated economic conditions positively by an 11-point margin: 55 percent excellent/good vs. 44 percent only fair/poor.  Today, views are negative by 58 points:  20 percent excellent/good vs. 78 percent only fair/poor.

Positive ratings dropped 49 points among Republicans (from 85 to 36 percent) since January and 22 points among Democrats (from 31 to 9 percent).

As 44 percent report someone in their household has lost work because of coronavirus, a 54 percent majority thinks the country is in the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression.  Sixty-five percent felt that way in the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis.

More Democrats (67 percent) than Republicans (40 percent) feel it is the worst crisis since the Depression.

Republicans are more optimistic about a speedy recovery, as 50 percent expect the economy to improve in the next six months.  Just 19 percent of Democrats say the same.

Overall, 32 percent think the economy will improve within 6 months, 23 percent say 7-12 months, 24 percent say 1-2 years, and 14 percent think longer than that.

In the 2020 ballot test, Biden leads Trump by 48-40 percent.  Biden’s 8-point advantage is outside the poll’s margin of error.  However, given that 11 percent are undecided or plan to vote for someone else, neither candidate hits 50 percent support.  The race could go either way.

Among voters who are extremely motivated about voting this fall, Biden has a 12-point advantage (53-41 percent).  More Biden supporters (69 percent) than Trump supporters (63 percent) feel extremely motivated to vote.

Trump leads by 7 points among men and by 30 among rural whites.  He won both groups by larger margins in 2016 (11 and 37 points respectively).

Biden leads by 20 points among women and 64 points among blacks.  Compared to Hillary Clinton in 2016, he bests her performance among women (Clinton was +13) but lags among blacks (Clinton +81).

The 27-point gender gap is even larger than the record 24-point gap in 2016.

Biden makes inroads with two key groups: independents prefer him by 13 points and voters ages 65+ by 17 points.  In 2016, Trump won independents by 4 and seniors by 7.

Even small differences in party loyalty and defections matter in tight races.  Biden receives the support of 88 percent of Democrats and 8 percent of Republicans.  For Trump, 84 percent of Republicans back him and 3 percent of Democrats.

Sixty-nine percent are following news about the allegation of sexual assault against Biden very or somewhat closely.  The accusation comes from Tara Reade, a former staffer in Biden’s senate office in the early 1990s.

Fifty-two percent of voters say the allegation will be a factor in deciding their vote for president, including 24 percent who say it will be a major factor.  It will not be a factor for 44 percent.

…Conducted May 17-20, 2020 under the joint direction of Beacon Research (D) and Shaw & Company (R), this Fox News Poll includes interviews with 1,207 randomly chosen registered voters nationwide who spoke with live interviewers on both landlines and cellphones.  The poll has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 2.5 percentage points for all registered voters.

Did they call you?

They sure didn’t call me.

Ever since the doom and gloom polls started appearing after Donald J. Trump announced his candidacy for the Republican Nomination in the 2016 Presidential Election, I have watched as poll after poll, no matter how well Trump is actually doing with American Citizens, painted a picture of a struggling novice who could not compete with “real” politicians.

Marshall McLuhan wrote that

The media is the message.

Well, in the past couple of decades, the Main Stream Media has become not just the message, but also judge, jury, and political executioner.

And, unfortunately, thanks to the influence of the Liberal daughter-in-laws of Rupert Murdoch and RINO Paul Ryan on their Board of Directors, Fox News has been overcompensating to the Left for quite a while now “in order to keep its programming fair and balanced”.

The daily diatribes from Juan Williams, Donna Brazile, and the little mousey brown-haired Liberal Female Commenter, whose name doesn’t really matter, have made me more than once turn the channel to reruns of…well…just about anything.

Fox News needs to recognize who made them into the News Juggernaut that they are.

It most certainly was not American Liberals.

It was average Americans.

The same average Americans who are called “Deplorables”, who voted for Trump the first time and who are going to vote for him again, no matter what skewed polling which has nothing whatsoever to do with reality shows in a graphic on a TV screen.

If polls decided a Presidential Election, Hillary Clinton would be sitting in the Oval Office.

Like a politician’s press secretary, pollsters can word polling questions and skew the sample of voters which they take to achieve whatever outcome they want their poll to have.

You want to see a true picture of how American Voters feel about President Trump?

Leave the Northeastern Beltway and the Left Coast and travel to the Heartland of America and speak to the average Americans living there.

Even with the economic hardships and the Democratic Governors’ fascist overstepping brought on by the Chinese Coronavirus, average Americans will still be there supporting the man who will reopen American and bring our country back…again.

In reality, the average Americans whom I am referring to, the ones who made Fox News the overwhelming leader among the Cable News Channels and who elected Donald J. Trump the 45th President of the United States of America, couldn’t warm up to Sleepy Joe if they were cremated together.

Fox News, you should be ashamed of yourself for putting out a piece of garbage like this poll.

I thought you were better than that.

Do you ever feel helpless about what's going on? Do you turn the sound down when a member of "The Resistance" speaks? Do you talk back to the television? I understand fully. My blog contains the views of a 61 year old Christian American Conservative. I was raised by members of The Greatest Generation. My father landed at Normandy. I love this country. By the way, how did that Hopey-Changey Thing work out for ya?

I have been writing daily since April of 2010. I enjoy researching and sharing my thoughts with you. It is a privilege and it beats the heck out of punching a hole in the wall.

Thanks for reading my posts!

I'll keep writing....

Until He Comes,

KJ
