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.

Dems Demand Bolton Testify After Book Allegedly Says Trump Withheld Ukraine Aid (Details)

‘Allegedly’ is the keyword…

Democrats really, really, really want to see former NSA John Bolton testify before Congress. They believe he knows something about President Trump and Ukraine that the administration is hiding. This is a long shot. First of all, if Bolton knew something it would’ve been leaked to a reporter by now. Secondly, as you’ll see in the Twitter thread below, Bolton’s lawyer has no clue what Dems are talking about. From MSN via NYT: President Trump told his national security adviser in August that he wanted to continue freezing $391 million in security assistance to Ukraine until officials there helped with investigations into Democrats including the Bidens, according to an unpublished manuscript by the former adviser, John R. Bolton. The president’s statement as described by Mr. Bolton could undercut a key element of his impeachment defense: that the holdup in aid was separate from Mr. Trump’s requests that Ukraine announce investigations into his perceived enemies, including former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. and his son Hunter Biden, who had worked for a Ukrainian energy firm while his father was in office.

Rashida Tlaib Retweets Story About Israelis Killing Palestinian Boy, But It Never Happened

The definition of ‘fake news’…

Rashida Tlaib hasn’t exactly been shy about how much she dislikes the nation of Israel. It’s quite stunning to see coming a member of Congress, if you think about. But because Rashida is a Democrat, it’s fine. The mainstream media will give her a pass for hating Israel because she’s a woman and she’s Muslim. Obviously, that doesn’t make it right. Yet, having a “D” at the end of your name can do wonderful things for a person’s career. Here’s what she retweeted: https://twitter.com/Ostrov_A/status/1221089689328869376?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1221089689328869376&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Frashida-tlaib-tweets-fake-story-about-israelis-killing-palestinian-boy%2F Reactions: https://twitter.com/AviKaner/status/1221097453698592769?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1221097453698592769&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Frashida-tlaib-tweets-fake-story-about-israelis-killing-palestinian-boy%2F https://twitter.com/KyleWOrton/status/1221096740901748737?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1221096740901748737&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Frashida-tlaib-tweets-fake-story-about-israelis-killing-palestinian-boy%2F During a speech in Miami, President Trump called out “the squad” in a way that not many people in the public eye ever have. And the way he did it is the exact reason he defeated Hillary Clinton in 2016, and, GOD-willing, why he’ll be re-elected this coming November. WATCH: TRUMP: “These people hate Israel — they hate Jewish people. I won’t name them. I won’t bring up the name of Omar, Tlaib, AOC — I won’t bring that name up. Won’t bring it up.” https://twitter.com/atrupar/status/1213232601441460231?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1213232601441460231&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fthehill.com%2Fhomenews%2Fadministration%2F476737-trump-lashes-out-at-squad-they-hate-jewish-people From The Hill: Trump sparked outrage on Capitol Hill in August when he said Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu should block Tlaib and Omar from visiting the country. Israel later did so, despite earlier vows by officials to welcome any members of Congress to the country. […] Omar in particular has raised eyebrows with her comments about Israel, suggesting that powerful Jews inside and outside of Congress are pushing “allegiance to a foreign country” over their support for the state.
