This article instantly depressed me.
Fifty-nine percent of registered voters in the latest The Hill-HarrisX poll said they favor keeping some American forces in Syria, a sign of public opposition to President Trump's plans to withdraw all troops from the country.
Sheesh. That's not the way I remember people thinking. Sure enough, just last year, voters were overwhelmingly against troops on the ground in Syria.
A Huffington Post/You Gov survey showed a 51-to-32 percent edge in favor of Trump's decision, the first direct U.S. attack on Syria during its six-year civil war.
But both polls showed only about a fifth of those polled want the U.S. leader to take further military action against the Damascus government.
So now people have totally shifted their opinion? Why?
I got suspicious. Who conducted that first poll? Hill-HarrisX.
Hmmm. That sounds familiar. It reminds me of a recent Joe Biden poll.
The Hill-HarrisX daily poll, conducted Dec. 16-17, found that 83 percent of self-identified progressives prefer Biden, compared to 75 percent who picked Sanders. Rep. Beto O'Rourke (D-Texas) was the top choice for 66 percent of "strong liberal" respondents.
Yea, right. Progressives prefer Biden? And pigs fly. Biden opposes progressives.
Polls clearly show that progressives prefer Bernie.
ogether with Doug Schoen, he was co-founder of the polling firm Penn Schoen Berland, whose clients included political and business leaders such as U.S. President Bill Clinton, British prime minister Tony Blair, and Bill Gates. Penn later served as chief strategist and pollster to Hillary Clinton in her unsuccessful campaign for the Democratic nomination for the 2008 presidential election
Color me surprised.
I'm going to keep a look-out for Hill-HarrisX polls for now on. They can't be trusted.
