What happens when a poll is taken showing the level of trust in the media? We see a clue to the outcome in november. The Rand Paul Review has the following, from Gallup…
More broadly, Republicans continue to express the least trust in the media, while Democrats express the most. Independents’ trust fell below the majority level in 2004 and has continued to steadily decline.
OK then, we see that the Democrats in the sample trust the media to the tune of 58%. That is predictable, as the media cheer leads for the Democrats. Also, we see the Republican figure is remarkably low, at 26%. In fact, I can’t understand why it’s that high, but that is the topic for another day. The big number-the one that the media and the Democrats have to be concerned with-concerns the independents. Independents are the swing votes. The numbers of liberals and Conservatives remain mostly stable, but it’s the independents that are swayed either way. If the independents are not trusting the media much more than Republicans, that means that the pro-Obama mainstream media propaganda isn’t striking a chord. And if the propaganda isn’t sinking in, they might not be voting Obama in the fall.
And that, my friends, spells doom for the Democrats.
