Thanks, Jim.  As said here many times, many have no clue how polls work and why the +/- numbers matter so much.  I'd encourage you to study why polls are often quite accurate so you sound more informed....and less like a Fox Viewer.

As a people we disagree about many things. That is not one of them.

TOO FUNNY!!

 

This is what I have been talking about... Polls.

 

Last week I posted a POLL and added none of my comments and the liberals went into attack mode as usual.  The poll I posted was not favorable to conservatives but the libs were libs.  Since I posted it ...well you know.

 

Here we have another poll so lets look at the sample:  There are 350M Americans but the poll asked only 1025 people this poster titles this thread MOST AMERICANS THINK...

 

TOO FUNNY!!

 

 

About this story that was posted by @Centristsin2010

 

This Washington Post Fact Checker poll was conducted Nov. 29-Dec. 10, 2018 among a sample of 1,025 adults interviewed through the AmeriSpeak Panel, the probability-based panel of NORC at the University of Chicago. Interviews were conducted online and by landline and cellular phones. The margin of error for overall results is plus or minus 4.5 percentage points.

Poll - Most Americans Think trump is a Liar!

POLL"  Few Americans Believe trumps Lies

 

For months, President Trump has claimed that U.S. Steel has announced plans to build more than six new plants. Throughout the midterm election, he repeatedly said that Democrats had signed onto an “open borders” bill. And he has long charged that millions of fraudulent votes were cast in the 2016 election.

 

None of these claims is true. What’s more, most Americans don’t believe them, according to a new Washington Post Fact Checker poll.

 

Fewer than 3 in 10 Americans — including fewer than 4 in 10 Republicans — believe these or several other prominent claims by the president, according to the poll.

 

Only among a pool of strong trump approvers — about 1 in 6 adults in the survey — did majorities accept several, though not all, of his falsehoods as true.

 

Among adults who say Fox News is one of their top two sources for political news, 33 percent believe in trump’s false claims tested in the poll, on average, compared with 21 percent of those who say Fox is not a main news source.

 

Unlike many politicians who will abandon an untrue claim when fact-checked, Trump generally repeats his falsehoods. To capture this phenomenon, the Fact Checker this week introduced the Bottomless Pinocchio, a new category awarded to politicians who repeat a false claim so many times that they are, in effect, engaging in campaigns of disinformation. Fourteen of the president’s statements qualify for the list.

 

One of those — Trump’s assertion that he has started building his long-promised wall along the southern border, which he has said nearly 100 times — found little support in the poll.
 

The survey finds that 26 percent of Americans believe the statement, “Construction has begun on a wall along the U.S. border with Mexico.” About twice as many Americans, 51 percent, accurately selected the description that, “There is ongoing repair of fencing along the U.S. border with Mexico, but no wall is being built.” Roughly one-quarter said they were unsure.

 

Most of trump’s base, however, believes that a wall is being built, with 56 percent of those who strongly approve of trump’s job performance embracing that assertion.

 

Overall, 44 percent of trump’s strongest supporters believe his false claims, while 35 percent of Republicans and 20 percent of Democrats believe them.

 

Americans are most unsure about the false claim that U.S. Steel has announced plans to build more than six steel plants in the United States. Just 12 percent of adults say trump’s claim is true, though fewer than one-quarter correctly identify the true statement that U.S. Steel has announced plans to restart two blast furnaces at one existing plant. Nearly two-thirds say they are unsure which claim is true.

Sure say's a LOT about those who support the "Liar-in-chief", especially those who call themselves "evangelicals" or "saved".
