From the appointment of Barack Obama’s sock puppets Progressive moderators for tonight’s presidential debate to a customized 10” raised lectern for Clinton to the Crooked One demanding that the biased moderators also perform as real-time fact checkers and do a Candy Crowley* on Donald Trump, voters are convinced that the presidential debate will be rigged in favor of Hillary Clinton.
According to a Rasmussen Telephone poll, 46% of prospective voters believe that Lester Holt-NBC, Anderson Cooper-CNN, Martha Raddatz-ABC and Chris Wallace, host of Fox News Sunday are biased against Donald Trump (my emphasis) and will prove that they’re in the tank for Hillary Clinton.
Six percent of voters polled actually believe that moderators will attempt to help Donald Trump while 32% believe that the moderators will be unbiased.
The breakdown by party:
Seventy-eight percent (78%) of voters who support Trump think the moderators will try to help Clinton. Most Clinton supporters (56%) say the moderators will try to be unbiased, but 20% say they’ll try to help their candidate. Twelve percent (12%) of Clinton voters think the moderators will try to help Trump, compared to just two percent (2%) of Trump supporters who feel that way….
*Revisiting the Candy Crowley moment when Crowley fact-checked Romney and LIED.
Only for Crowley to correct and walk back the fact check AFTER the debate.
Will history repeat itself this presidential debate season? How say you?
