The media is pushing a narrative that America is in turmoil over Donald Trump’s agenda.
The press is employing video of professional agitators at town halls as evidence of the massive opposition to Donald Trump’s agenda.
But a new poll shows that the media’s story is a lie.
A brand-new NBC/Wall Street Journal poll found Americans overwhelmingly are hopeful and optimistic about the future.
60 percent of Americans have more hope and optimism about the future of America.
The media has been lying to Americans.
Citizens are not lighting their hair on fire because Donald Trump won the election and is implementing his agenda.
Trump’s election and early actions have actually increased the hope and optimism Americans feel about their future.
“Sixty percent of adults feel “hopeful and optimistic” about the future of the country, a Wall Street Journal-NBC News poll released Sunday shows, while President Trump’s net approval rating is negative—for now.
When asked, “When you think about the future of the country, would you say that you are mainly hopeful and optimistic or mainly worried and pessimistic,” sixty percent of 1,000 adults surveyed from Feb. 18 t0 Feb. 22 said they were hopeful, not pessimistic. That’s a steady upward drift from 53 percent in August, and 56 percent in December. Pollsters note the margin of error is plus or minus 3.1 percentage points. Meanwhile, Trump himself fares slightly less well: 44 percent approve of the job he’s doing as president, while 48 percent disapprove.
The surge in optimism is driven in part by Trump voters’ enthusiasm, according to what pollster Bill McInturff told the Washington Examiner: “This is a strong number being driven by very high numbers among Trump voters who express optimism across a number of measures on the poll, including higher economic confidence.”
But other groups are feeling hopeful, too. Over half, or 52 percent, of Hispanics are hopeful about the future of America, not worried. So are 65 percent of whites. (Among blacks, only 36 percent feel optimistic.) Nearly all Republicans, or 87 percent, are hopeful about the future, as well as 56 percent of independents. And so are 37 percent of Democrats.
So, Trump has broad appeal with whites and Hispanics, along with a significant minority of Democrats—and a majority of independent voters. That’s solid enough of a coalition to sustain power and encourage a younger generation of Republican leaders, such as Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton, to champion a populist, nationalist agenda.”
The poll also found that just four percent of Americans believe Obamacare is working well as it is currently constructed.
This also disputes the media narrative that Americans are up in arms over the prospect of the GOP repealing Obamacare.
Members of the left-wing press are paid protestors starting disruptions at town hall events as a substitute for the facts.
And the truth is Obamacare is failing and the American people are optimistic about the direction Donald Trump is taking the country.
