== BREAKING == Far More Americans Trust President Trump Than Trust Liberal Media
This may be the most important poll in recent times if not of all times. And it is very very bad news for the Democrats. For decades, the liberal press has exploited its monopolistic death grip on the political narrative in America. For decades Americans had no choice to consume their "news" from a liberal media perspective which has gotten increasingly and more shamelessly biased over the years to the point that it has now become an outright propaganda mouthpiece for a far left agenda of today's Democratic party.
Enter candidate and now President Donald J. Trump. Of all the many successful innovations he introduced in the political world, this one may be his most important. He found a way to get around the liberal media and prevent them from censoring, twisting, falsifying and distorting his message before it reached the American people. He broke their death grip on information by tweeting his messages directly to the people.
Yes, presidents before have used other technologies to bring their messages directly to the people. Notably President Reagan used television as a means of directly addressing Americans with his message. He turned his campaigns into the two biggest landslides in the history of the country including a never equaled 49 out of 50 state victory in his second term.
President Reagan's successful use of the media didn't go unnoticed by the left. It was not long after his term, and perhaps because of his successful exploitation of the media, that almost every media outlet began more carefully controlling what was reported, what was not reported, and how it was reported. Coupled with this was the Democrat's sudden interest in reinstating "equal time" laws which was their response to the embryonic rise of a tiny number of conservative talk radio challengers in the mid 80s such as Rush Limbaugh. By forcing these talk radio voices to have to provide "equal time" to voices from the left, they could cut back the air time of the conservative challengers by 50% and try to put them out of business keeping their monopolistic death grip on the "news" intact. (fortunately, the Republicans foiled that plot).
And add to all that the liberal media's systematic dumbing down of straight "news" -- just the facts ma'am -- reporting and replacing it instead with spin and commentary (today almost always disguised as fact based straight news) that increasingly served the interests of the left and the Democratic party. Fast forward to recently...
Thanks to the Internet, which has mushroomed beyond the left's control (not that they haven't tried!), conservatives have made some inroads in the media allowing something other than the Democrat's leftist propaganda to be heard by a significant number of Americans for the first time in decades. Although when measured in terms of the number of Americans who have access to information, the liberal media still has a vastly bigger number and vastly more outlets than conservative media. It's not even close.
But starting with the presidential campaign of 2016 President Trump innovated a giant leap forward towards the evening of the playing field for the previously censored voices of the moderate and right. After months of being misquoted, misrepresented, censored and just plain lied about in the liberal press, he found a way to bypass the press altogether and have his voice heard directly by the people with a tweet. No longer did he have to rely on the dishonest liberal press to faithfully report his message: a press that was bound and determined to prevent the American people from hearing his message and to make sure he lost the election. He could now speak DIRECTLY TO THE PEOPLE, with no middleman to ensure that they were hearing the truth about what he said and what he believed. No longer did the liberal press have a death grip on the narrative.
And THAT changed EVERYTHING, starting with a strong WIN for President Trump at the voting booths in spite of the media's vicious attempt to stop him, and now contributing to the success of his presidency as he continues to address the people directly and bypass the liberal media altogether. The media can no longer apply its liberal bias to control what Americans can hear from and about President Trump. For the first time Americans can hear it directly for themselves and judge for themselves. And this poll provides a striking confirmation of the liberal media's utter defeat and President Trumps incredible victory. No wonder the liberal media, and the Democrats they shill for are LIVID. The results are in. In an earth-shattering final battle for the preservation of truth they have lost the media war.

It's obvious you're a pro-Trump guy based on all your posts.
I wonder when you're going to realize that you voted for a moron.
While no president in modern history has caused so much division among the US population, the opposing views is what democracy and the right to vote is all about.
However, Trump's house of cards if falling apart more rapidly than any other president. Within a month of being in office, he has had an executive order rejected by the federal courts. It's pretty sad and embarrassing for Trump to get a smack of reality that his executive order was halted because it did more harm than good.
That was the first domino falling.
Now the second... Trump's National Security Advisor - Michael Flynn - resigned because he lied to the president and vice president. Complete incompetence so far from the Trump administration. The guy could not even last 21 days without screwing up.
There have been quite a few screwups already, but those are the big ones. We'd be here all day if we listed the medium ones.
"While no president in modern history has caused so much division among the US population..."
I almost stopped at the point you called President Trump a moron but decided to give it one more try. Then the next sentence was this. Apparently you've forgotten who the last president was and how he tore the country to pieces. I realized at that point there is no point in reading the rest.
President Trump hasn't even been in office a month yet. You have NO DATA to analyze the results of his policies with. Yet you have already written him off. It's obvious where you are coming from and not worth addressing. You are more interested in trying to make President Trump fail than in trying to make the country succeed.
He's just had his National Security Advisor resign in disgrace for getting caught lying to the VP.
(And had an executive order rejected by the federal courts, in case you really didn't read further in the opinion.)
And tweeted out a made-up Lincoln quote for his birthday.
We aren't talking about Trump's policies. We are talking about his complete and utter failure to construct his cabinet and government. Trump is already failing before getting his people together. Now, not only has his nominated Labor Secretary dropped out of the race (because Republicans knew he would be rejected by the senate), but even worse, Flynn's replacement nomination as National Security Advisor has rejected the position. Vice Admiral Bob Harward basically said he wasn't going to get involved in the shitshow of a government that Trump has created.
If these were simply differences of opinions, then that would be acceptable.
But what we are seeing is a complete crumbling of Trump's government before even getting started. He is incompetent and unable to even FORM a government, much less RUN it.
What utter baloney. The only thing different about President Trump's Cabinet filling process and other president's process is that the opposing political party is doing everything they can to sabotage it, slow walk it and prevent President Trump from getting the people he needs to do the right thing for the American people. But don't worry, he will beat them. There isn't a presidency in history, including Obama's that didn't have plenty of the same exact things you are describing. President Trump is making remarkable progress on his agenda in spite of the Democrat's despicable obstructing of his Cabinet staffing process. Complete crumbling of his administration? Yeah right. Wake up. You are having a wet dream. There is nothing of the sort happening. Sorry, President Trump isn't going to fail in fulfilling his agenda any more than he failed in his campaign. You're just going to have to put on your big boy pants and get used to it.
