Republican Secretaries of State Walk a Minefield of Election Lies, Misinformation and Fake News — A New Poll Has Revealed Who Will Win the 2016 Presidential Election
New York, NY – January 15, 2016 – The 2016 Presidential Election is shaping up to be a battle for the heart and soul of the Republican Party, the American people and our country. The truth about Presidential elections is far from easy to understand and easy to refute.
In a new NBC News/ Wall Street Journal poll released today, the Republican Party will hold a commanding victory in a number of key states, giving the party a huge advantage heading into the 2016 election.
In the survey, voters will choose the Republican nominee for president for the second time in three years. Two other times in the past three election cycles, the Republican nominee has almost always won. The poll’s methodology is based on a random sample of 1,099 Americans online.
The survey’s findings show a substantial majority of voters — 58 percent – are very or somewhat concerned about the effects of the economy in the United States. Another poll from Reuters released the same day found that 68 percent are worried about the economy.
In addition, another NBC/WSJ poll released a few days later found that 59 percent of Republicans and 59 percent of independent voters believe the Republican Party should have been better prepared for the 2012 election results.
More importantly, the survey also shows that voters are significantly divided (54 percent) on the role of the national media in American politics. The NBC/WSJ survey showed that voters are far more likely to believe the media is out of line with public opinion, with 60 percent of voters saying the media is biased against Republicans and 47 percent believing the media is biased against Democrats. Conversely, the Reuters poll showed that more voters believe the media is out of line with public opinion, with 61 percent of voters believing that media is biased against Republicans and only 37 percent of voters believing the media is biased against Democrats.
At the top of the list of potential Republican candidates for the 2016 presidential nomination, by far the most popular — Mitt Romney — has an average favorability rating of only 12 percent, with only one other candidate — Ron Paul — drawing even the lowest average satisfaction rating of only 8 percent.
