Liberal Media Scream: Stephanopoulos slips, says Trump would beat Biden
This week’s Liberal Media Scream shows just how reluctant the press are to tell the truth about how bad President Joe Biden’s polling is.
An ABC News/Washington Post poll was released on Sunday, and ABC’s George Stephanopoulos led This Week with some findings from it: Biden’s approval at 39%, most Democrats want a different candidate for 2024, Democrats “even” with Republicans in the midterm preference.
But it wasn’t until 44 minutes into his show that Stephanopoulos slipped that former President Donald Trump would beat Biden in a head-to-head election. It came as he picked up on panelist Chris Christie’s claim that Trump is losing support among Republicans. Stephanopoulos countered that “the polling right now is not really showing that. It’s showing, among Republican voters, he’s holding firm. Our poll shows him defeating Joe Biden in 2024.”
In fact, the poll put Trump at 48% to 46% for Biden, a finding that appeared in the 34th paragraph of a 35-paragraph story in the Washington Post.
George Stephanopoulos from Sunday’s This Week on ABC:
“Chris Christie says this is slowly moving away from Donald Trump. And I think I actually agree with him. But the polling right now is not really showing that. It’s showing, among Republican voters, he’s holding firm. Our poll shows him defeating Joe Biden in 2024.”
Brent Baker, vice president of research and publications for the Media Research Center, explains our weekly pick: “After all the legal onslaughts and renewed media hostility against Donald Trump over the past few months, the fact his own poll found Trump would still beat President Biden must really gall Stephanopoulos. That could have been the lead item to highlight from the poll, not one to bury as an aside deep in the show without even citing the specific numbers.”
