Poll: Trump supporters trust him for news more than their family and friends
9 replies, posted
Donald Trump’s supporters trust the president for accurate information more than their own friends and family, according to a new poll.
CBS News asked more than 2,000 Americans who they turn to for accurate information, regardless of whether they agree with the source's views. Ninety-one per cent of strong
Trump supporters said they turned to the president. Only 63 per cent said they looked to their friends and family.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, only 11 per cent of those who strongly supported the president who popularised the term “fake news” said they trusted the mainstream media for
information. Since taking office, Mr Trump has regularly assailed the media and encouraged his supporters to trust in him above all else. Discussing his controversial trade
policy at a veteran’s conference this month, Mr Trump told supporters: “Just remember, what you’re seeing and what you’re reading is not what’s happening."
But Mr Trump regularly makes inaccurate or misleading statements himself. Just two days before the CBS survey was published, the president tweeted that his poll numbers
were the highest in the “history of the Republican party”, including President Abe Lincoln. The first national presidential poll was conducted in 1936 – seven decades after
They're not supporters. They're fans.
This is the definition of a cult - no ifs, no buts.
yep, to these people his presidency is an Apprentice fanfiction brought to life
Duh, of course they do. How many times have you heard of these dipshits screwing up their personal lives because they can't shut up about their retarded conspiracy theories and keep trying to score political points against people close to them who just don't want to fucking play in the first place? Look at QAnon believers.
They're the sort that'd turn their spouse in to the KGB because they've drunk the party kool-aid so hard.
Oops late @WubbaBill
A religion perhaps. Same fundamentals. Probably not a coincidence that that demographic is also more likely to fall into the Trump camp.
This reminds me of the Darkest Dungeon lore bit where a guy gets infected by a fishman, then wakes up one day realizing all his friends' scales flaked off and had gross, sunken in eyes and hair growing out of their heads.
It's like seeing someone in such a lucid state of delusion that you wonder how they even became that way. Clearly they were clawed by a rabid conservative and suddenly woke up a spineless, writhing mass of hate and bigotry.
I'm pretty sure Alex Jones has singlehandedly ruined more american families than the entire mainstream media combined.
