Nearly nine months after President Donald Trump’s victory in the presidential election, not a single Trump voter has come forward to declare that he or she was tricked into voting for Trump by so-called “Fake News” websites or deceptive social media bots.
62,984,825 Americans voted for Trump in the November election. Of those 62.984825 million voters, not one person has made the claim that they intended to vote for Hillary Clinton but changed their mind after being duped by a misleading article or piece of information on social media. The mainstream media has not presented a single interview or document to support Clinton’s theory that low-information voters were hoodwinked into last-minute changes of heart due to supposedly factually inaccurate alternative news items.
98 percent of Trump supporters said they did not regret their vote in April — with enough time having passed to discern whether the news items that influenced their vote were real or not — and the 2 percent who reportedly regretted their vote did not mention being tricked.
Facebook is funding a Harvard Kennedy School of Government program with advisers from companies including Crowdstrike, the embattled Democratic Party contractor accused by a top hacker of creating the fake Russian hacker Guccifer 2.0. But Facebook has not put forth evidence of any election manipulation that occurred on its platform.
Hillary Clinton is also urging social media companies to adopt stricter moderating procedures to fight so-called “Fake News” like the kind she believes helped Trump defeat her soundly in the election.
Neoconservative senator Marco Rubio spoke at a recent Senate hearing (in which Democrat Joe Manchin absurdly claimed that the Russians were trying to influence Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania) about so-called Russian Twitter bots that supposedly blasted out information during the campaign.
“Are Twitterbots really espionage? Is that illegal?,” I asked him in the hallway.
“Next question,” Rubio said, refusing to answer.
Quora’s question “Do you think many Americans were tricked into voting for Trump, by relying on fake news as their source of information?” has three replies.
“No we were not, you actually have it backwards. Trump supporters looked at real news, whereas anti-Trump people saw the fake news. In fact, “Fake News” is a title applied to anything critiquing Clinton, or bringing het scandals to life,” says one answer.
“No, anyone who believed the fake news simply confirmed their own biases. They were going to vote for Trump anyway,” said another.
“No. Trump voters are scum. If they believed lies, it’s only because they chose to,” said a third.
Trump supporters decry the Russia witch hunt as a “hoax.” In fact, the Fake News narrative was bolstered shortly after the election by a man the Washington Post identified as a “serial hoaxer.”
“I think Donald Trump is in the White House because of me,” said a hoax news writer named Paul Horner, whose claim was reported by the Washington Post on November 17. The Hill ran the headline “Fake news giant: I feel bad about putting Trump in the White House.” The narrative was established days after the election.
It would not be illegal, or discrediting of the election, if it was revealed that a handful of people regretted their votes because they saw a credulous social media post and momentarily grew angry enough to head to the polls to vote for Trump. But no evidence exists to suggest that such people exist, and no purported Fake News victims are willing to expose themselves to the intellectual scrutiny that would go along with making such a claim.

President Trump’s Approval Rating Soars as the Public Increasingly Supports His Coronavirus Response
The public supports Trump’s crisis response.
A Gallup poll has shown that President Trump’s approval rating has jumped to 49 percent as the coronavirus pandemic continues.
His approval rating has jumped five points in the past month. This matches his all-time high, which was previously achieved in late January and early February. Ninety-two percent of Republicans support the President, while 43 percent of independents and 13 percent of Democrats approve of Trump.
Americans also approve of the way President Trump has handled the coronavirus pandemic. Sixty percent of Americans support Trump’s disaster response while 38 percent of Americans disapprove. Ninety-four percent of Republicans support his response, while 60 percent of independents and 27 percent of Democrats support how Trump has handled coronavirus.
“The Trump administration has received some criticism for its response to the COVID-19 pandemic — including that the president downplayed the threat, at least up until his nationally televised address on March 11,” Gallup noted in their report.
“On March 16, Trump acknowledged the seriousness of the situation by urging people to avoid gatherings of more than 10 people and to have workers and students stay home if possible. The administration has had daily press conferences since then to update the nation on what the federal government is doing to address the situation,” they added.
It is not uncommon for an incumbent president to gain in popularity during a crisis, as every commander-in-chief in office during a serious threat has gained support from the public as a result.
“Historically, presidential job approval has increased when the nation is under threat. Every president from Franklin Roosevelt through George W. Bush saw their approval rating surge at least 10 points after a significant national event of this kind. Bush’s 35-point increase after 9/11 is the most notable rally effect on record,” Gallup noted.
Although he is peaking right now, President Trump has consistently shown strength in various polls for many months as the public realizes the fake news is lying about his administration:
New polling from Quinnipiac released Thursday shows President Donald Trump handily defeating every major Democratic presidential candidate in hypothetical general election matchups…
Well-known Democrats Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden are the most competitive candidates against Trump in the Wisconsin general election, and even they lose by a considerable seven points to the incumbent Republican president.
Even Pete Buttigieg, an Indiana mayor who claims to have a credible path to victory in midwestern states the President grabbed from the Democratic Party in 2016, appears nowhere near seriously competing in the state.
The polling suggests Democrats will have a serious uphill battle in order to contend for the electoral votes of midwestern states such as Wisconsin, in 2020 or other future Presidential elections.
President Trump’s polling in statewide and national surveys has consistently improved as the Democratic Primary erupts in contention, suggesting that the divisions within the Democratic Party may bode well for his re-election.
The state was formerly assumed to be a safe blue state, before Trump won its electoral votes in a shocking upset in 2016. Pennsylvania and Michigan also went Republican for the first time in decades in Trump’s victory, and will prove essential to the election in 2020. Polling of the latter two states shows closer general election contests than in Wisconsin.
President Trump is showing his leadership bona fides during the crisis, and the public is thrilled with the way he is handling the coronavirus pandemic.
