Facts don’t lie. Polls and surveys, if conducted properly, reveal the truth. Obviously, researchers can manipulate the quantitative methods used for many studies — a practice that happens far more often in academia than we realize. But, for the most part, the numbers don’t lie.
A poll conducted by Reuters and Ipsos, the global market research and consulting firm, has revealed that nearly 60 percent of the 1,516 adults interviewed between April 15-19 support the recent deployment of the National Guard to the US-Mexico border.
55 percent of US adults consider the deployment of National Guard to the border as effective in the short term, while just less than half consider it effective in the long term.
If you’ve been listening to the mainstream media, this number is dauntingly off kilter. As they portray it, the only people who support having the National Guard at the border are extremists. Well, maybe people — honest, good-hearted Americans — are tired of being labeled extremists. Maybe the recent narrative of multiculturalism at all costs has gotten old. Maybe the mainstream media has ignored honest Americans for too long.
It’s a shame that it would take an English news agency to reveal such a glaring, yet subtle, confirmation of leftist media bias, but at this point, it’s easier to find the few instances of factual, unbiased reporting than it is to point out the glaring examples of leftist media framing, priming and agenda-setting.
The message is resounding: You’re not alone, American, you’re not alone.
