Fox News Poll: 56 Percent of Americans Blame Trump Rhetoric for Mass Shootings

    Thirty-four percent said they blamed “Sentiments expressed by President Trump” for gun massacres “a great deal,” while 22 percent said they blamed Trump’s rhetoric “some” for mass shootings.

    Among Democrats, 87 percent blamed Trump to some degree, along with 50 percent of independent voters, but even among Republicans, more than one in five laid some of the blame for mass shootings at Trump’s feet.

    The poll also showed some startling results on the issue of gun control. Support for universal background checks remained high at 90 percent, but support for an assault weapons ban jumped seven points from the last time Fox polled the question, from 60 percent in April to 67 percent in the new poll.

    All rhetoric is to blame. All of it. No matter whose side it came from.

    "Interviews were conducted August 11-13, 2019 among a random national sample of 1,013 registered voters (RV). Landline (222) and cellphone (791) telephone numbers were randomly selected for inclusion in the survey using a probability proportionate to size method, which means phone numbers for each state are proportional to the number of voters in each state. Results based on the full sample have a margin of sampling error of ± 3 percentage points..."

    This is so far detached from reality it boggles the mind. Damn polls.

    The details of the flaw in this poll is so blaring I cannot even begin to spit at it.

    Nobody asked me and majority of Americans! Polls can be biased on one side depending on who is conducting it and the section of people they are asking. They will poll 1,000 people, most times much less than that and come out with these huge percentages to push their narrative? Imagine that, 1,000 people out of 300,000,000 people? Can you see how ridiculous that is?
    Now, a more fair poll is the one where they asked 500 Democrats, 500 Republicans and 500 Independents on who are the best and worst US Presidents. The worst US Presidents according to them being Jimmy Carter, Barack Obama and GW Bush. Best of the bunch is Ronald Reagan being the best with Bill Clinton ranked 2nd best. Now, this is a poll I would deem credible because they actually polled a good cross section of all the US voters! Most other polls are garbage especially, those conducted by extreme liberals!

  10. GOP leadership tells House Republicans to lie about white supremacist gun massacres – call it ‘violence from the Left

    House Republican leadership has sent a memo to GOP members of Congress directing them to lie about right wing white supremacist gun massacres, and to call it “violence from the left.”

    The memo, which The Tampa Bay Times acquired, includes talking points for congressional Republicans to parrot when speaking with reporters or constituents. It instructs them on how to address questions about gun violence, including the domestic terrorism recently perpetrated in El Paso, Texas.

    If asked a question like, “Do you believe white nationalism is driving more mass shootings recently?” GOP lawmakers are being told to offer this response:

    “White nationalism and racism are pure evil and cannot be tolerated in any form,” the document directs lawmakers to say, according to the Tampa Bay Times. “We also can’t excuse violence from the left such as the El Paso shooter, the recent Colorado shooters, the Congressional baseball shooter, Congresswoman Giffords’ shooter and Antifa.”

    The El Paso shooting suspect who killed 22 people targeted Hispanic people specifically. He is reportedly a far right wing domestic terrorist who left a manifesto that quoted or echoed President Donald Trump multiple times.
