While the Republican party is surely better than the Democrats in terms of transparency and lack of hidden agenda, there are still plenty of establishment hacks roaming within the GOP.
But surprisingly, some of these globalist “conservatives” still do not believe the media’s hype on the Trump/Russia collusion theories.
According to a new poll, only 9% of Republicans believe that any collusion took place.
That’s a drastic decrease from April 2017, which was at 18%.
This goes to show that really nobody believes or cares about this Russian conspiracy theory, except for a small percentage of delusional morons.
Republicans may be consolidating behind President Donald Trump—and against the legacy media—the more the establishment press sensationalize their Russia coverage.
Despite the legacy media’s wall-to-wall coverage of various Russia-related “scandals” involving President Donald Trump’s associates since April, “the number of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents who think that the Russians sought to influence the election, and that the Trump team intentionally helped them,” has plummeted from 18 percent in April to nine percent, according to the latest ABC News/Washington Post pollreleased on Sunday.
The poll was conducted July 10-13. Partisan divisions in the poll were “35-23-35 percent, Democrats-Republicans-independents.”
Its margin of error is +/- 3.5 percentage points.
On July 11, the second day the poll was in the field, Donald Trump Jr. released his emails with publicist Rob Goldstone regarding a meeting with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya that Trump Jr. eventually attended with Paul Manafort and Jared Kushner during the 2016 election.
On July 12, the third day of the poll, CNN’s morning show New Day spent 93 percent of its airtime on the Russia scandal, according to a Media Research Center study.
Other networks—along with other CNN shows—devoted a considerable amount of time to the Russia scandal throughout the week.
And yet, the media’s incessant Russia coverage has not even convinced that many more Democrats that Trump’s associates intentionally helped Russia influence the election.
According to the poll, the number of Democrats who believe this (64%) went up just four percentage points from April. That, according to ABC, is “not a significant shift.”
