This is beyond stupid. A blatant, and obvious lie. Even if the verbiage of the question is entirely errant and grossly misstates the thoughts (it does), the results are simply not believable given the answers to previous questions in the poll.
So, NBC has put out results of a new poll. They simply aren’t credible. No rational person could believe these results to be true.
It’s a bag which is too mixed. You can find the poll here.
Much of the poll is something one would expect. To start, the demographics are reasonable, but, I think the Hispanics are slightly underrepresented. That really shouldn’t make any difference to what I see as errant.
To start with, the poll asks the question if they think the nation (US) is heading in the right direction or not. 63% say we’re going in the wrong direction.
It asks about president Zero …. only 41% approve of the job he’s doing. Incidentally, nor not, the poll also asks about Hillary. Only 44% are positive or very positive about Hillary. Given those statements, one can get a sense of what the people being polled are like, right?
The poll even asks this …….
More respondents think our government is doing too much, already.
So, we’re polling a group of people who do not like Zero. They’re not big fans of Hillary, either. Half of them say our government is doing too much already.
But, then later, the NBC poll shows us this ….
Ehh……. yeh, but, no.
More than half then approve of the EPA proposal even if it means higher utility bills? 2/3 support the EPA’s CO2 emissions limits?
These results are simply not congruent. It’s bullshit. It’s propaganda.
