WND Pushes Fake-News Poll To Boost Trump
Topic: WorldNetDaily

WorldNetDaily has a long, enduring love of bogus polls, whether they be bought-and-paid-for results or meaningless opt-in polls that can be easily skewed.

That love pops up again in a June 23 WND article in which Liam Clancy touts the latter:

True, it’s an unscientific, anyone-welcome-to-vote poll.

But it’s on the Drudge Report, one of the most influential websites.

A stunning 92 percent of the respondents believe President Trump is doing a “great” or “good” job six months into his presidency, despite intense criticism and virtually a total-opposition approach Democrats and the establishment media.

Likely not indicative of the U.S. at large, the poll does suggest President Trump continues to hold strong support from his conservative base.

The percentage favor Trump varied by only fractions of a point as the response total rose to well over a quarter of a million over the day Friday.

The shocker here is that Clancy admits the poll is bogus up front, though he doesn't concede that Drudge is a highly biased right-wing operation.

Still, it seems that WND is so insecure about Trump's standing with the American public that it's reviving its old tactic of pushing bogus polls.
