Yet another important reminder of how very critical it is to look underneath the headlines to the sources and what it is that the sociopolitical ruling elite “Establishment” (mainstream media included) are really carving up and trying to pass off to John and Jane Q. Public as top grade meat to feed us:
Gallup put out some garbled mess of an op-ed, “pseudo poll” on 9/25/15 with numbers on a rolling scale where they used different dates for different candidates to show % of name recognition and positive image. For Trump it was the 7 days following the 2nd debate. But for Carson, Bush and Fiorina it was for TWO weeks. Yeah, that’s real fair. But for Trump to point things out when they are unfair is… Whining? Thin-skinned?
So, apparently, Donald Trump not only has to answer more questions, in more detail, and in just the right tone; he also gets polled statistically in a different manner also – in ways obviously designed to knock him out of the race, or at the very least, convince the public that ¨Trump has peaked and is sinking in the polls¨. It doesn’t even say how many were polled – only that it was Republicans over 21. They say “Trump’s positive image continues to fade” and Newsmax headlines reflected same. Besides noting that Newsmax has hit heavily in positive for Carson and Fiorina, I see also this one from Gallup’s Frank Newport isn’t his first negative op-ed on Trump (scroll down on page to see). Gallup! HOW can they put this convoluted stuff out there and even PRETEND to be impartial???
Well, they really can’t make that claim. They have a lobby firm: Blackwell Sanders Peper Martin. Oops. Another of their clients? Sands Las Vegas. Sheldon Adelson. Chairman and CEO. Same one who recently said he wasn’t supporting Trump (but he’s supported many eGOP candidates with 10’s of millions over the years).
