Gallup Survey Finds Democrats More Gullible than Republicans

Eric Zuesse

A Gallup survey published on August 4th by the Knight Foundation has found that the ‘news’-media that in 2002 and 2003 stenographically transmitted to the American people the Government’s lies about WMD in Iraq, and that more recently transmitted stenographically the U.S. Government’s lies in 2016-2020 that Russia had hacked the Democratic National Committee (“Russiagate” — and here is more depth on this, indicating that the Mueller Report was part of the hoax), are overwhelmingly trusted by Democrats, but not by Republicans:

“Whereas 70% of Democrats say the media is under attack and those attacks are not justified, 61% of Republicans say such attacks are justified.”

Furthermore:

FIGURE 15 Opinions of News Media, by Political Party: What is your overall opinion of the news media in the United States today? Republicans (43% “Very unfavorable”) Democrats (5% “Very unfavorable”)

The study showed overwhelmingly higher trust in America’s lying ‘news’-media by Democrats than by Republicans.

The 7 billion who believe that they have a right to own more wealth than they need for a healthy life, they are totally gullible and suffer gross stupidity. For by such a manifest injustice, they cause the 1 billion least educated poor, to suffer death by starvation.

HOW TO SPOT A LIAR

“Satan said to Eve, ‘You will never die, for you will be
equal to God having the knowledge of good with evil.’”

Well, she did die and surely, such knowledge made her equal only with a liar.

For good by itself we see, evil by itself we see, but when a more intelligent liar uses his greater knowledge of good as a pretense to hide his intent to do evil, not until the misery sets in do we gain the light to see.

Prior to the pandemic I have traveled often to the US for business or vacation. I have driven through most parts of the US and I can say that most are very nice, but they are the most backward in the first world. There is a vast difference between Europeans and Americans. I think that Stalin would have been proud if he could have achieved the same level indoctrination. So why would it be a surprise to find a high level of gullibility.

America’s grass roots gullibility is the direct cause of its leaders’ gallability.

Most of them still believe the “Russia did it” b.s. They’re hopeless. Little wonder Biden is seen (by them) as a mental giant…
