MSNBC Panel Baffled by Poll Showing Biden Is Bigger ‘Threat to Democracy’

An MSNBC panel grew bewildered at a poll indicating independent voters find President Joe Biden to be a bigger threat to democracy than President Donald Trump.

A PBS Newshour/NPR/Marist poll found 53% of independents believe Biden’s second term will “weaken America,” while 42% believed Trump would further harm democracy.

“I find it shocking, honestly,” MSNBC political analyst Susan Del Percio said. “I can’t make sense of that number. I wish I could. I wish I could have some really great insight to it, but I don’t know if it’s an outlier or not, because the other numbers of independents are going in the right direction. So, that may be it.”

Del Percio appeared to blame the media for not airing Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s trial on television for people’s disinterest in the case and belief that Biden is a bigger threat to democracy.

The poll found that 45% of Americans believe the trial is unfair and is plotting to interfere in the 2024 presidential election. A majority, 54%, found the trial to be fair in order to find if Trump violated the law.

A majority of those surveyed viewed both Biden and Trump unfavorably, with 56% disapproving of Trump and 54% hold a negative view of Biden, according to the poll. Thirty-seven percent of Americans said Trump’s potential second term could strengthen democracy, while 30% said the same for Trump.

Trump has repeatedly held a narrow lead against Biden in recent polls. A New York Times/Siena College poll from April 13 found Trump holding a 46%-45% lead over Biden, creating a more competitive race from the month prior, where Trump held a 5-point lead.

The former president is leading Biden in key swing states, including Georgia, Arizona, and Wisconsin.

When you get down to it. You have Biden entering his second childhood which is accompanied by tantrums, shouting, and memory loss. Biden has been and is a threat to democracy.

Marxist Media Polls (NYT) always slip in this little disclaimer…that you’re not supposed to notice:
“… A majority of those surveyed…”
See the Cop-Out? And WHERE do you suppose the New Yuck Times gets their survey respondents? Des Moines? Wichita? Tulsa? Pensacola?
Any “poll” by this Leftist rag uses New Yorkers as “…those surveyed!” Sure.
Naturally, the MSNBC Commies would therefore be shocked…because they know, they poll True Believers!
I don’t believe polling organizations measure anything! They’re for effecting behavior (it’s natural for herd animals to strive to be part of the majority), to “guide” the unsuspecting toward a desired outcome.
And, the old adage, “follow the money” applies here, too! Who pays political pollsters? They are paid by the party that requests the poll. In the interest of return business (yes, it’s a business), they will give the employers desired outcome priority! They want future contracts! In this way (the $ angle), the buyer of the poll results gets what they expect…a favorable poll for THEIR candidate/party.
Polls and Trolls manipulate your mind. Both do the work of their employer, clandestinely!
Both should probably be ignored.

That’s only because they don’t understand the difference between a Constitutional Republic and MOB rule!
