Do Americans Believe Ford or Kavanaugh? New Poll Has the Answer

Published

on

Two polls were taken after the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing last week where we heard testimony from SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh and his accuser Christine Blasey Ford, revealing that Americans are deeply divided over which one of the two they believe.

The polls reveal that the vast majority of those divisions fall across party lines, showcasing that folks tend to believe what their political party believes.

A YouGov survey conducted September 27-28, found that 41 percent of the 1,000 respondents believe Christine Blasey Ford is telling the truth, while 30 percent believe she is not. Slightly fewer, 35 percent, believe Kavanaugh is telling the truth, while 38 percent believe he is being dishonest.

Those who said they’d watched at least some of the hearings, which was a majority of the country, were more likely to believe both: 52 percent who watched believed Ford, while 36 percent did not; 44 percent believed Kavanaugh and 46 percent did not.

As HuffPost notes, the responses were “deeply divided along partisan lines: Seventy-three percent of Democrats, and just 14 percent of Republicans, believed Blasey was telling the truth; 74 percent of Republicans, and just 11 percent of Democrats, believed Kavanaugh.” YouGov’s Douglas Rivers and Joe Williams wrote Saturday that “hardly anyone believed both were telling the truth,” and the hearing does not appear to have changed the views of most respondents.

A new Reuters/Ipsos poll conducted September 26-30 found similar results: around 4 in 10 Americans believe the accusations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, while around 3 in 10 do not. Over a quarter of Americans aren’t sure what to believe.

“The poll found that 42 percent of adults said they believed the accusations, including about the same number of men and women,” Reuters reports. “Thirty-one percent do not believe them and 27 percent said they ‘don’t know’ what to believe.”

What’s scary about these findings is that it shows just how little the average modern American is investigating important issues for themselves, relying instead on what the members of their political parties are telling them to think.

This is bad, regardless of whether you’re on the left or right. Many issues facing our nation are complex and complicated. They require people to be well versed in these issues and to understand basic universal principles and truths to help navigate them.

Let’s hope people on both sides learn to engage things on their own without the help of political parties to tell them what to think.

ACU Calls on Delta Airlines to Correct Their Lies About Georgia Voter ID law

Continuing its efforts to protect our liberty from the threats of woke corporations the ACU sent a letter to the Delta over their Georgia lies

Published

Since Georgia passed their election integrity law, anyone who has followed the news knows how major corporations have taken steps based on the false cancel culture claims about the bill. A week ago, we learned that the American Conservative Union (ACU) announced the establishment of The Center To Protect Voters and Their Voices. This ACU unit is designed to prevent woke corporations from using their resources to skew the political discourse toward policies that attack Americans’ freedoms as they did in Georgia and previously in other states. Delta Georgia lies Now the ACU is expanding its fight to protect the rights of Americans. They wrote the CEO of Delta Airlines and published online, a letter calling on Delta Airlines, Inc. to correct their inaccurate description Of Georgia’s voter ID law. Or, as I call it, their lies. Here’s the letter: Mr. Edward Bastian Chief Executive Officer, Delta Air Lines Inc. Delta Air Lines Inc. Dear Mr. Bastian, As one of the nation’s largest airlines, Delta touches the lives of hundreds of millions of people throughout the freedom-loving world. Many of these are Americans who value free enterprise, common sense and fairness. Overseas, they are advocates for democracy who look to the United States for guidance as they strive to replicate our ability to respect individual sovereignty and liberty. On behalf of all these people, the American Conservative Union (ACU) urges you to correct your misleading and damaging statements about the Georgia voting law, SB 202, and we ask for a meeting to discuss our concerns with your embrace of unAmerican political forces. In the past, Delta has needed the support of conservative organizations, like ACU, to pursue sound policies that sustain Delta’s business. When your interests align with conservative values, we have been able to work together. For example, many…

Poll: Majority of Americans Think Corporations have Gotten Too Political

A new poll finds that a majority of Americans think that U.S. corporations have gotten far too political and should get back to just selling stuff. We have witnessed a growing number of corporations going woke since Georgia passed its new election integrity law. These corporations are pushing a hardcore, left-wing line of lies against the Georgia and have made all sorts of false claims about the new law. But a recent poll by the Daily Wire finds that a majority of Americans are already sick and tired of the left-wing posturing of these corporations. The Daily Wire poll found that 64 percent of those surveyed are less likely to support these big-mouthed corporations. The poll also found that most Americans did not support the decision by Major League Baseball to pull its All-Star Game from Atlanta. https://twitter.com/guypbenson/status/1379845164169101313 https://twitter.com/guypbenson/status/1379845165897121792 So, why are these corporations doing all this despite the fact that they are pissing off half of America? Well, there are two reasons. First is cowardice. Instead of standing for American free speech and respecting the rights of the states to run their own lives, these corporations are siding with the anti-American left and are engaging in economic terrorism against us. They are doing this not out of principle, though. They are doing it to prevent people from suing them. After all, leftists sue everybody at the drop of a hat. Conservatives almost never do. That means these corporations are guessing that they can escape legal problems by mollifying the left despite angering the right. The second reason is business. These big corporations imagine that if they follow the left, it will help lead to the destruction of their smaller competitors and they will be the last men standing. They also imagine that they can control government through their big…
