That survey is from 2012 for one, yet you said "Fox News viewers are..."
I stand by that.
The questions are also limited and do not cover many of the domestic issues that conservatives care about.
Sounds like a convenient excuse to me. "They didn't ask me about what I know"...
In fact there were only 9 questions and one of them is about unemployment, with the correct answer being the misleading numbers produced by the govt.
Of course. It must be a conspiracy.
You just engaged in precisely the propaganda that lost the Democrats the election.
Just because it may hurt, does not mean it's propaganda. That is another example of being intellectually lazy.

I am supposed to give a Damn about what some Mentally Deranged Man/Girl has to say about anything ? Why isn't this She/He getting the Psychiatric Help It Desperately Needs ? Donald Trump got Elected President , some People Need to get Over it Already .
Good lord man , the Left Leaning media made trump look like him and putin were brothers
just went around grabbing women by the kitty kats
while attending their weekly KKK women bashing meetings.
All the news on trump was brought to the foreground while hers were buried
Bill clinton meeting with the Attorney General during her ongoing investigation and her campaign working with the MSM to provide her debate questions was nothing but a small beep in the headlines.
Instead we kept hearing about Trump sexually molesting women and the Russians. The RUSSIANS I tell you.
They still believe MSM polls pretty sad.. in the video she sais this one is "exclusive" She said only MSNBC has it and that you can't get it anywhere else

seriously? a poll!? haven`t you figured it out by now, those media polls are complete garbage, they are fake.
Here's the thing though. It is pretty obvious from your posts that you lean left.
So for you, you can watch the left leaning stuff and you don't think of it as propaganda because you really don't have to be convinced all that much. You were already inclined to fall in line with that type of reasoning on things.
You watch a right leaning source and it surely will seem like propaganda to you because it violates your internal schema of how the world and its issues should operate. It seems like its trying to feed your a line of poorly disguised crap.
And then you see the numbers and wonder how many people can fall for it
Well, the reason is that a lot of people lean right, so we see it the same way you view left leaning sources, and we see THEM the same way you view the so-called vast right-wing machine.

The reality that matters is that their votes won Trump the election.
It serves no good purpose to question the accuracy of their world view.
More divisive sneering at the winner and his electorate is unhelpful.
It does serve a good purpose. If half of the people are walking around thinking the stock market fell under Obama and that California shouldn't be included in the popular vote, it is kind of important.
This poll is mainly about Obama. The only part about Clinton has to do with the popular vote, a fact, though OBVIOUSLY not what decides an election.
Trump does have a lot of connections to Russia. It would be unwise to dismiss until we see what may come out of the intelligence community.
We've heard about all of it, including Clinton having Parkinsons and have a lesbian romp with Huma. We've heard it all.
CNN, MsNBC, CBS, ABC, and NBC--not to mention other outfits, such as Spanish language, BBC (I don't know how many folks here in the US actually get BBC, I do, so I include them), Al Jazzira, and the list is endless all slant more or less left. I venture to guess that it's fairly close to even...don't know for sure if that's the case, I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong.
I watch a good many of them, because as is often the case, the truth of the matter lies in the middle of the slants (left or right).
Not sure why we should expect them to show us "truth", or factual news--when has any news source ever not had an editorial slant?
But we do have brains, don't we? If I can sit down and browse the various outlets and get at least a glimmer of what's truly happening, so too can everyone else, if they care to take the time to do so.
Even if we did get nothing but the facts...we'd still be where we are today.
Maddow and her ilk, left and right, would still spin it to suit the narrative they want to put out there...and you and I would still discuss (we don't argue, we discuss.) what it all means in the context of our daily lives.
I've never joined or been the least bit interested in Twitter, but I find it all humorous.
And the Clintons have a lot of connections with foreign nations and large sump of moneys as well.
Same goes for Trump from the left.
The Fake news angle is Fake news itself.
Neither side of the news concentrated on the real issue in this country which is rampart corruption in congress, revolving doors between DC and lobbyist, and a two BS party MSM system .
Well we can just call them in-accurate.

I wouldn't go so far as to call them "fake". But inaccurate would be, well, accurate.
When a poll conducted in a country of over 300 million only surveys 1000, or less, folks, inaccuracy is going to be rampant.
One person out of 300,000 isn't conducive to accuracy. Any accuracy is going to be strictly chance.
Clinton did not win, is not the topic of the thread and was not relevant to the comment you made. Stop deflecting.
