(DCWatchdog.com) – A brand new poll from the liberal Washington Post newspaper has Democrats concerned, according to several insiders who spoke on background to the DC Watchdog.
The most significant result in the poll is so shocking to liberals that the Post buried the lede.
But, try as they might, what jumps off the page is that two years after Joe Biden assumed the presidency, the American electorate would vote for Donald Trump over Biden in a 2024 rematch.
The key paragraph from the article is buried eight paragraphs into the report.
“In a hypothetical matchup between Biden and Trump, 48 percent of registered voters today say they would favor Trump to 45 percent who say Biden, a gap within the poll’s margin of error. About 9 in 10 Democrats back Biden and about the same share of Republicans back Trump. Among independents, 50 percent favor Trump to 41 percent for Biden.” [emphasis added]
The poll results shocked the Post so much that it framed the entire article about the poll as showing how Americans aren’t “excited” about either Trump or Biden.
In fact, they headlined the piece, “Few Americans are excited about a Biden-Trump rematch, Post-ABC poll finds,” while never mentioning anywhere near the top that if the election was held today, Trump would beat Biden and by a wide margin he’d be supported by Independents who are often the deciding factor in elections.
Instead, here is how the Post opened the article in the top two paragraphs:
“President Biden and former president Donald Trump may have each drawn a record number of votes in 2020, but at this early stage in the 2024 election cycle, Americans show little enthusiasm for a rematch between the two well-known yet unpopular leaders, according to a Washington Post-ABC News poll.
“Neither Biden nor Trump generates broad excitement within their own party, and most Americans overall say they would feel dissatisfied or angry if either wins the general election.”
Not a single word that after two years of observing Biden in office, Americans would take Trump — the likely GOP nominee — over Biden.
