LOCAL NEWS MEDIA REDUCED TO INCOHERENT POLLS DONE ON LINE

First of all online polls have been denounced as worthless.  Only those willing to go to the news entity's cite and choose to give an answer get a voice in the poll.  There is nothing random or scientific about the poll.

A local news station (I'm sure I now the one because I know what I was watching before the news came on and their web page has the same lead story I saw last night) posted an on line poll asking "Has you opinion of Trump changed since hearing the tapes?"

The question is incoherent leaving for a response which cannot be interpreted such as the pic above.

The key here is "Has your opinion of  Trump changed." We know with certainty that both sides are dug in and nothing will change their mind about Trump.  So you could answer no to this question and in turn tell us nothing.  Your response could tell us you still oppose Trump and the tapes changed nothing.  Your response could tell us you still support Trump and the tapes changed nothing.

At news time more than 80% of those responding said their view of Trump had not changed. 

Hell we do not know if they even heard the tapes.

AT THE NATIONAL LEVEL

CNN  becoming a complete joke put on a forensic expert to push his opinion which put Trump in a bad light, but concedes another forensic expert could legitimately say he is wrong.

Answer:  The use of the forensic expert was a non-story.  But CNN needed to say they went to an expert and the expert agreed with them.  I swear when Chris Cuomo was discussing the opinion of their forensic expert he was having spontaneous orgasms.  It was sad to watch how low journalism has gotten.

WE ARE SCREWED

There is no where to turn for factual news.
