ABC/Washington Post presented a new poll today of the broader electorate (full pdf below). To highlight how absurd the media presented bias is, I would draw your attention to page #6 and #7. (ie. the poll results of prior months)
What interested political and media followers will note is ABC/WaPo never released the October part of this poll. Why? Well, perhaps because at the time (last two weeks of October) both ABC and The Wasington Post were selling a “declining Trump narrative“. As their own historical data clearly shows – they were selling that story DESPITE their own polling showing the exact opposite of their narrative.
‘Splodey Head Accompanying Script – Trump’s steady lead reflects his success in tapping into the broad anti-establishment, anti-immigration –and now anti-refugee– sentiment within the GOP. Despite his sometimes controversial statements –or perhaps because of them– he leads his competitors on key attributes and issues alike, and continues to be seen as most likely to win the party’s nomination.
Forty-two percent of leaned Republicans say they trust Trump over his top four opponents to handle terrorism; his nearest competitor, Bush, gets just 18 percent. Trump prevails by a slightly wider margin on trust to handle the economy, with 47 percent vs. 15 percent for Carson.
Trump also leads, with 45 percent, in trust to handle immigration (Rubio’s next with 18 percent) and to handle tax policy (42 percent for Trump, the rest clumped behind). That leaves just one issue tested on which Trump doesn’t prevail, trust to handle health care; 35 percent pick Carson, a physician; 26 percent, Trump.
In terms of personal attributes, 47 percent see Trump as the candidate best able to “bring about needed change in Washington,” vs. 22 percent for his nearest competitor, Carson. Trump also leads in being seen as having the best chance to win the White House, 38 percent, and Carson again next at 22 percent. (script in poll results)
