Is the sky blue? Depends on what Donald Trump says

Is the sky blue? Depends on what Donald Trump says

Not Right, but to the Left ...

"Currently, 77 percent of Republicans say the media favors one party over the other; in 2003, 59 percent of Republicans said the same", researchers noted.

A majority of voters in Washington state didn't go for Donald Trump in the presidential election, and a new poll says many aren't thrilled with his first months in office either. The Democrat tallied more than 54 percent of the vote.

More than Democrats, Republicans have been contending - for more than a decade - that partisan media bias exists. By comparison, 44% of Democrats now say the media plays favorites, unchanged from the 44% who said so in 2003.

When the survey of 503 voters interviewed last week was broken down along party lines, 89 percent of Democrats said they disapproved of Trump's style and 81 percent said they disapproved of his policy directions.

Ford March U.S. Sales Down 7.2%
Vetr upgraded the stock to "Buy" rating in Thursday, August 13 report. "A stock price represents risk-adjusted future cash flows". Ford has a lower FCF valuation and a more comforting history, but GM has higher operating margins and a better capitalization.

Democrats also were more likely to have been in an argument about politics since the election, the poll says. "Republicans are mostly responsible for the increase in perceptions of partisan media bias since 2003".

Gallup said Republican pride is close to the historical average of 94 percent, while the current level of pride among independents is six points lower the average of 79 percent. "Democrats are split in their views, with 43 percent naming Democrats as the recipients of that bias and 40 percent saying the bias is toward Republicans".

Meanwhile, the poll found that 92 percent of Republicans and 73 percent of independents are "extremely" or "very" proud to be Americans, little changed from previous year.

Fifty-five percent said that news organizations' stories are "often inaccurate" while only 36 percent said news organizations generally get the facts straight. Overall, Americans' belief that the media favors one party over the other is the highest it has been in more than 20 years.

Results for this Gallup poll are based on telephone interviews conducted March 9-29, 2017, with a random sample of 789 adults, aged 18 and older, living in all 50 USA states and the District of Columbia. "As predicted in our final poll, which showed the Republican nominee with a 1.6-point lead over his rival, Trump stunned the media establishment and easily won the presidency".
