“If you torture the data long enough, it will confess to anything.”
Fake News CBS proudly released a poll Thursday claiming 85% of Americans approved of dementia Joe’s address to a joint session of Congress Wednesday night.
“Most viewers who tuned in to watch President Biden’s speech liked what they heard and came away feeling optimistic about America.” CBS reported.
The poll is a big lie.
CBS interviewed 10,420 US adults and then cut it down to about 1,000 viewers for their sample.
Of the 943 people, 54% were Democrats (510 viewers), 25% were Independents (235 viewers) and 18% were Republicans (169 viewers).
In other words, CBS made sure their “poll” gave them their desired results favorable to Joe Biden.
Via The National Pulse:
In a stunningly duplicitous story aimed at shoring up the response to Biden’s speech, CBS claimed on television and on their website: “Most viewers who tuned in to watch President Biden’s speech liked what they heard and came away feeling optimistic about America.”
What they didn’t tell their viewers, nor readers, is that the poll was wildly biased towards self-identifying “Democrats” and traditionally left-leaning “Independents” and self-described “Moderates”.
They polled 510 Democrats, and just 169 Republicans. They added 235 “Independents” to the methodology, which also usually skew left. A further 3 percent were not identified.
🚨 ALERT: CBS/YouGov surveyed just 169 Republicans of nearly 1,000 viewers.
This is how they defraud the public.
Can you imagine the ridicule if I released a poll which interviewed over *FIVE TIMES* as many Rs as Ds and claimed it was balanced?https://t.co/jk6rPv08Q4
