New Poll Reveals Who America Really Blames for Dividing the Country. The Answer May Surprise You.

Right on the money.

If you listen to folks on social media — you really, really shouldn’t by the way — you’d swear up and down that the source of all our division, the reason Americans are so viciously at each other’s throats is all due to President Trump.

However, a new poll blows that theory straight out of the water. As it turns out, the majority of Americans actually think the mainstream media is more to blame for creating a hostile political climate than Trump is.

The results will, no doubt, be surprising to members of the media who have spent the past week lecturing the White House on the tenets of civility and implying that Trump’s often bellicose statements are driving a rise in politically-motivated violence.

According to the poll, 64% of voters say they believe the mainstream media is responsible for dividing America.

President Trump isn’t spared blame — a full 56% of American voters believe the president has done more to divide the country than unite it — but the mainstream media certainly won’t be happy knowing the president has taken a clear second place in the race to be the worst influence on the national discourse.

Trump was also hailed as a more unifying force in the media, though not by much. Around 30% of American voters said they felt Trump has unified Americans in his two years in office, but only 17% of respondents said they felt the media was in any way responsible for bringing Americans together.

Interestingly, the poll was conducted between October 25th and 30th, which wasn’t exactly a good moment in time for President Trump. A supporter of the president was arrested during that time for mailing packages to Democrats and anti-Trump politicians. Add to that the openly anti-Semitic mass shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh that left 11 people dead.

In other words, it’s not like this was particularly good time for Trump where everyone was feeling good about his accomplishments. Yet, the vast majority of those polled still felt the media held a lion’s share of the blame for the divide we’re facing as a nation.

That speaks volumes.

White House Announces Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal

This could be a big boon for a number of American industries as well.

Published

Regardless of what you think of Joe Biden touting this latest infrastructure deal as a “win”, it sure is nice to see that our government isn’t completely and utterly broken in the 21st century. It took months of bickering and infighting, and more than a few moments of political pettiness, but it appears as though we may just have an infrastructure deal after all. President Biden announced on Thursday that the White House and a group of bipartisan senators had reached a deal on a $579 billion infrastructure plan. “It’s been a very long time since the last time our country was able to strike a major bipartisan deal on American infrastructure,” Biden said at the White House. Biden said he and congressional Democrats had to concede some on what’s known as “human infrastructure,” such as investments for childcare and spending on climate change. Democrats will instead look to pass additional spending in a separate bill through a Senate budgetary process called reconciliation, which requires only a simple majority to pass legislation. And, despite no one having seen the bill yet, Biden is confident that Congress will send it to his desk to sign in the coming days. The radical left will likely be the most disappointed in the bill, after having previously suggested a goal of a $10 trillion investment in climate change initiatives.

Miami Building Collapsed After Years of Sinking into the Earth

Scientists has determined the issue years ago.

Just north of Miami, in the nearby town of Surfside, there is a massive rescue effort underway as nearly 100 people remain unaccounted for in the wake of a residential high-rise’s collapse. That number was nearly double the early estimate, having risen dramatically on Thursday afternoon as more information became available to those leading the effort. The late-night collapse, which was captured on video by a nearby surveillance camera, appeared to be a sudden, freak accident, but new information seems to indicate that there might be more to this story. A Florida high rise that collapsed early Thursday was determined to be unstable a year ago, according to a researcher at Florida International University. The building, which was constructed in 1981, has been sinking at an alarming rate since the 1990s, according to a 2020 study conducted by Shimon Wdowinski, a professor in the Department of Earth and Environment. When Wdowinski saw the news that the Champlain Towers South condominium in Surfside had collapsed, he instantly remembered it from the study, he said. “I looked at it this morning and said, ‘Oh my god.’ We did detect that,” he said. But not everyone agreed with the assessment. Wdowinski said his research is not meant to suggest certainty about what caused the collapse. The building was sinking at a rate of about 2 millimeters a year in the 1990s, and could have slowed or accelerated in the time since, he said. In his experience, even the level of sinking observed in the 1990s typically results in impacts to buildings and their structures, Wdowinski said. He believes that very well could have been the case for the Champlain building in the 1990s, based on his findings. “It was a byproduct of analyzing the data. We saw this building had some kind of unusual…
