Fake News Alert: Reuters Trashes Trump When Poll Actually Shows Him GAINING Popularity!

Well, well, well….what do we have here?

More lying Fake News, trying to take our President down.  But we don’t let that happen here at AFP!

Here’s what happened.

On Thursday, Reuters published a story with this headline:  One in eight people who voted for Trump having second thoughts – Reuters/Ipsos poll

The only problem with that?  It’s fake news.  Not at all supported by the data of the poll.

Folks, they’re just making stuff up now, thinking we’re all too stupid to actually read the article or look at the source data ourselves!

According to Breitbart:

The more accurate headline, based on the actual Reuters/Ipsos Poll results would be this: “One in twenty people who voted for Trump would not vote for him again, a significant improvement from one in eight back in May.” (One in twenty is five percent. One in eight is 12 percent.)

So the poll actually shows Trump gaining big ground in the last month….popularity RISING!

The data of the poll also shows that if the election were today, Trump would beat Hillary again, and by a wider margin!  Funny how that didn’t make it into the Reuters article.

Oh, and one more thing: Reuters is the group who claimed on election morning, that Hillary had a 90% chance of winning.  Can you say “Fake News”?

Please help us spread this truth!

Here is an excellent breakdown, from our friends over at Breitbart:

Reuters published a story on Thursday about a recent Reuters/Ipsos poll with this blazing headline: “One in eight people who voted for Trump having second thoughts.”
“About one in eight people who voted for President Donald Trump said they are not sure they would do so again after witnessing Trump’s tumultuous first six months in office, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll of 2016 voters,” Reuters began its report, adding its own left wing bias of interpretation [emphasis added].

A detailed analysis of this latest Reuters/Ipsos poll, however, shows that the data within the poll does not really support either the headline of the story or the misleading first sentence.

The headline says one in eight Trump voters are “having second thoughts,” which implies they would now vote against Trump.

The more accurate headline, based on the actual Reuters/Ipsos Poll results would be this: “One in twenty people who voted for Trump would not vote for him again, a significant improvement from one in eight back in May.” (One in twenty is five percent. One in eight is 12 percent.)

The associated detailed data analysis provided by the Reuters/Ipsos poll proclaims that “cracks emerge in Trump’s base.”

But the actual data within the poll shows that Trump’s standing with his base actually improved during the past two months.

The Reuters’ story is based on the answers to one question taken in the Reuters/Ipsos poll conducted of 2016 Trump voters in July. Reuters/Ipsos asked the same question of 2016 Trump voters in a poll in May, and Trump’s standing among those voters during the two months period improved by six percent.

In May, 82 percent of Trump voters said they would vote for him again. In July, that number jumped to 88 percent.

In the July poll, of the remaining 12 percent of 2016 Trump voters, only five percent, however, said they would either vote for others over Trump (Hillary Clinton, Gary Johnson, or Jill Stein), or would not vote at all. Seven percent said they did not know.

Here’s a detailed breakdown of the poll question and the responses from the both the May and July polls:

The poll surveyed voters who already had told Reuturs/Ipsos on Election Day how they had cast their ballots. After several months passed, the poll asked: “If the 2016 presidential election were held today, who would you vote for?”

In May, here’s what Trump voters said:

82 percent Would vote for Trump again
9 percent Would not vote
5 percent Don’t know
4 percent Would vote for others (Hillary Clinton, Gary Johnson, or Jill Stein)

In July, here’s what Trump voters said:

88 percent would vote for Trump again
1 percent would not vote
7 percent don’t know
4 percent would vote for others (Hillary Clinton, Gary Johnson, or Jill Stein)
Reuters asked that same question in the July poll about Hillary Clinton:

In July, here’s what Clinton voters said:

86 percent would vote for Clinton again
3 percent would vote for Trump
8 percent don’t know
3 percent would vote for others or not vote
Reuters did not report whether they asked the Hillary Clinton “vote for again” question in the May poll, and, if they did, what the results were. It is noteworthy that the Reuters/Ipsos poll changed the possible responses in the “vote again” question depending on whether they were asking about Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton.

Reuters is the same organization that predicted on November 7, 2016, “With hours to go before Americans vote, Democrat Hillary Clinton has about a 90 percent chance of defeating Republican Donald Trump in the race for the White House, according to the final Reuters/Ipsos States of the Nation project.”
