Despite the mainstream media’s desperate attempt at throwing away all semblance of being unbiased to shun Trump, it appears that the businessman-turned-politician still came out on top in last nights debate.
According to polls conducted by conservative-leaning outlets such as Drudge, Breitbart, the Washington Times, WCPO Cincinnati, Heavy, and FOX, Donald Trump appeared to have dominated the debate.
Polls from a variety of other outlets painted a slightly different picture, such as Fortune, NJ, TIME, CBS, CNBC, Variety, and Slate, which show Trump as only about 1-20 percentage points ahead of Hillary.
A few polls show Hillary in a minor lead, such as WCVB Boston, AOL, and the Star Tribune.
One poll conducted by CNN which shows massive support for Hillary was found to have sampled 57% more democrats than republicans, thus skewing the results in her favor.
Clinton Campaign Becomes Fact Checking Moderator?
A recent debate between Clinton and Trump supporters over whether or not a third party media operative should become the “fact-checker” during the debate has sparked controversy. Although the moderator did prove bias by ignoring Clinton’s scandals while highlighting Trump’s, the candidates ended up mostly policing each other.
The thought that Hillary Clinton is somehow a champion of truth and objectivity seems absurd to me, as I’m sure it does to most Americans as well. This didn’t stop her however, from turning her website into a temporary “fact-checking” machine during the debate.
The “fact checkers” conveniently left out Clinton’s lies about her support for the TPP as well as several other key points.
Although according to the polls, this insider’s strategy has appeared to have failed, as trust in Washington, in conjunction with Big Journalism, is at an all-time low.
The Washington Times writes (emphasis added)…
“Most ‘fact-checkers’ are merely liberal journalists looking to prove their preconceived narrative. They cherry-pick the statements to “fact-check” and then decide which data to back it up with. Statistics can be manipulated — for every study coming out of the Brookings Institute, the Heritage Foundation can have a counter argument, depending on the methodology and surveys used. Moreover, much of what they decide to “fact-check” is subjective at best. Nothing that can be pinned down with undisputed data.
In addition, many times politicians use hyperbole to extenuate a larger point — and many times these ‘fact-checkers’ ignore the larger point to focus on the validity of the minutia.” – Kelly Riddell, Washington Times Writer
It looks like despite the insider media’s attempt to make the only anti-globalist candidate appear unpalatable, he is still coming out on top.
On another note, I highly recommend reading the book Crisis of Character: A White House Secret Service Officer Discloses His Firsthand Experience with Hillary, Bill, and How They Operate by Gary J. Byrne. If you’re a Hillary supporter who actually, truly, legitimately cares about facts, then I’m sure you will be pleased to read this book so that you can get to the bottom of who the next president might be, instead of just blindly believing what you hear from Hillary and her cronies.
