Fake News: Poll Shows Voters See Crisis At Border, Politico Seizes on Anti-Trump Data Point

Border Crisis Politico Poll

A Morning Consult/Politico poll was sent to supporters of President Donald Trump revealing a plurality of voters view the current situation at the U.S.-Mexico border as a national crisis, though Politico seized on the only anti-Trump data point in the polling.

The poll reveals 79 percent of Americans, including 71 percent of Democrats, identify a major problem at the border. A whopping 74 percent of Republicans view the problem as a crisis, and they are joined in this view by 18 percent of Democrats.

While the data indicates a plurality of Americans understand the escalating situation at the border, Politico seized on the data point they could most easily twist into an anti-Trump narrative for its article, Poll: Voters blame Trump, GOP for shutdown.

A new POLITICO/Morning Consult poll, conducted as the partial government shutdown reached its third week, reveals the scope of Trump’s challenge. A minority of voters agree with Trump’s description of a crisis of illegal immigration at the southern border. There’s only tepid support for the wall he wants to build there. Voters are opposed to shutting down the government to extract the funds for the wall’s construction — and more blame Trump and the GOP for the shutdown than Democrats.

Nearly half of voters, 47 percent, say Trump is mostly to blame for the shutdown, the poll shows, while another 5 percent point the finger at congressional Republicans. But just a third, 33 percent, blame Democrats in Congress.

While Politico fixates on the idea that Americans blame President Trump for the shutdown, they neglect to mention that the president took ownership of the shutdown in a nationally televised spat with Senator Chuck Schumer and Representative Nancy Pelosi late last year.

“You want to know something? I’ll take it,” said President Trump in December, “If we don’t get what we want one way or the other, whether it’s through you, through military, through anything you want to call, I will shut down the government.”

President Trump continued, “I am proud to shut down the government. I will take the mantle.”

Underscoring Politico‘s cherry picking of data points, President Trump’s campaign sent a screen shot from the poll to supporters via SMS on Thursday.

As of Friday, January 11, President Trump broke the previous record for keeping the federal government shut down, previously set by Newt Gingrich in 1996.

ET TU, TUCKER? Carlson Suggests Sidney Powell Has No Evidence of Vote Steal Coup on ‘Fox News’

Has he been compromised?

After the inspiring press conference by attorneys Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell on Thursday about the Trump campaign’s steadfast dedication toward fighting voter fraud, supporters of President Trump expected Fox News host Tucker Carlson to support these efforts to save America.

Unfortunately, that is not what happened, as Carlson went off on Powell, making statements on his primetime program implying that she has no evidence for her claims.

“For more than a week, Powell has been all over conservative media with the following story: This election was stolen by a collection of international leftists who manipulated vote tabulating software in order to flip millions of votes from Donald Trump to Joe Biden,” Carlson said.

“The other day on television, Powell said of Trump, that when the fraud is finally uncovered, ‘I think we’ll find that he had at least 80 million votes.’ In other words, rigged software stole about seven million votes in this election,” he added.

At this point, Carlson’s commentary went off the rails, and he appeared to be carrying water for the color revolution coup that has culminated with the vote steal of the century.

“We invited Sidney Powell on the show. We would have given her the whole hour. We would have given her the entire week actually and listened the whole time at wrapped attention…But she never sent us any evidence despite a lot of requests,” Carlson said.

“When we checked with others around the Trump campaign, people in positions of authority, they told us Powell has never given them any evidence either,” he added.

Because Powell does not want to jeopardize any court case which the fate of the entire nation rests upon by blabbing to the media or any bureaucrats, Carlson is attacking her credibility.

“She never demonstrated that a single actual vote was moved illegitimately by software from one candidate to another…We’re telling you this because it’s true,” he said.

The entire clip can be seen here:

Big League Politics has reported on the left-ward shift of Fox News in recent months, which Carlson has up to this point pushed back against:

After Fox News host Neil Cavuto cut off White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany during an election-related press conference on Monday, ratings giant Tucker Carlson lambasted Cavuto and the network on his titular primetime program.

“In a democracy, you cannot ignore honest questions from citizens. You’re not allowed. You can’t dismiss them out of hand as crazy and immoral for asking. You can’t just cut away from coverage you don’t like. You can’t simply tell people to accept an outcome because force doesn’t work in a democracy. That’s dictatorship,” Carlson said.

“In a free society, you have to convince the public of your legitimacy. You have to win them over with reason. Democracy is always a voluntary arrangement. Telling voters to shut up is never enough,” he concluded…

He is responding to the shameful editorial decision by Cavuto and Fox News earlier in the day to censor McEnany in order to keep up the ruse that Joe Biden is the president-elect…

It is being speculated that Carlson may not be long for Fox News. However, he is a ratings giant who brings in the bacon to a network that is quickly growing reviled to its own core base.

Hopefully this is not a sign that Carlson has folded to the globalist establishment.
