Latest ‘ABC News’ Poll Gives Hope To Democrats & US Democracy


Major news outlets have fallen into the trap of trying to provide “balanced news.” But in actuality, they have being reporting quite the opposite. The events on the left and the right are not of equal weight at all. The left  is light-weight as opposed to the exceedingly heavy, dangerous news on the right. TV, radio, and print news are changing, but not quickly enough. Due to this, the news’ reports have been, well, more depressing than they are in reality. And now for a change, there is some exceedingly good news.

A new ABC News/Ipsos poll discovered nearly three-fourth of Americans (72 percent) think that those attacking our national Capitol, were not like people on vacation, as some not-so Republican not-really legislators claimed. No it was an attempt to destroy our democracy. Still, 25 percent believed the mob was “protecting democracy.”

The poll’s results showed 58 percent of the participants believe that Trump was “a great deal” or had a “good amount of responsibility” for the treasonous insurrection on January 6. A full 41 percent thought he had no or little responsibility for it.

Twenty-five percent of all parties believed in Donald Trump’s pseudo-world. We recall that he told the Veterans of the Foreign War (VFW) and its auxiliary something “truly terrifying.” Trump said, as CNN reported:

Stick with us. Don’t believe the crap you see from these people, the fake news. … What you’re seeing and what you’re reading is not what’s happening.’

When it comes to President Joe Biden’s 2020 presidential electoral win, 65 percent thought it was true. But a large one-third indicated it was not. This was a full year into his presidency.

All this division in what is reality and what is not falls along party lines, according to ABC. There was 45 percent of Republicans who thought the attack on our citadel of freedom threatened democracy. But more members of the not-so-Grand Old Party believed the mob was protecting our democracy.

For the Democratic reality, 96 members of the party thought the storming of our Capitol was threatening democracy. These numbers have been “strikingly consistent” to those immediately after January 6, 2021, GMA (Good Morning America)reported:

‘These figures are strikingly consistent with polling taken in the immediate aftermath of Jan. 6, despite efforts by Trump to recast the narrative and GMA (Good Morning America).’

Still, there have been plenty of Republicans who want to block the House Select Committee from investigating the January 6 attack and from obtaining records from his administration.
