A recent poll commissioned by Dick Morris shows that Donald Trump “is much more popular than media polls report and his job approval is way higher,” Morris told Breitbart News in an exclusive interview.

“It is astonishing how different this data is from any other recent poll,” Morris told Breitbart News.

The poll’s highlights include the following:

  • 48 percent approve of Trump’s performance in office while 50 percent disapprove. Most media polls, by contrast, place the president’s job approval down between 37% and 42%, far lower than the McLaughlin poll.
  • 71 percent support the appointment of a special prosecutor to investigate leaks by public officials to the media. 15 percent oppose.
  • 63 percent  support the appointment of a special prosecutor to investigate allegations of pay for play between the Clinton Foundation and the State Department under Hillary and Hillary’s use of a private server for her e mails. 27 percent oppose.
  • Only 35 percent feel Trump was involved in Russian meddling in the election. 25 percent believe Russia did meddle but Trump was not involved. And 21 percent feel Russia did not meddle

The survey of 1,000 likely voters was conducted by John McLaughlin and Associates between August 26 and August 30 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.1 percent.

“It’s like coming in from an alternative reality to read this poll after all the media polls saying Trump is very unpopular, Obamacare is making a comeback, and that voters are worried about Russian meddling,” Morris, the author of Rogue Spooks: The Intelligence War Against Donald Trump, tells Breitbart News.

“The reality is that the electorate — as opposed to the random sample of voters and nonvoters that the media is using – largely applaud the job Trump is doing and are getting fed up with the leaks in the investigation of Russian meddling,” he adds.

Morris also noted that the poll indicates there is widespread support for the appointment of a special prosecutor to investigate leaks by public officials to the media.

“I am pushing personally that there should be a special prosecutor to investigate leaks from the government to the media,” Morris adds. The results of this poll–which show 71 percent support such a special prosecutor–indicate the vast majority of the public share his view, Morris said.

Morris also said those surveyed do not believe President Trump colluded with the Russians to “fix the election.”

“There is widespread belief that Trump did not collude with the Russians to fix the election. There is far more concern out there about the daily leaks from the special prosecutor’s office than there is worry about Russian influence,” Morris said.

In terms of past and future voting behavior, 45.5 percent said they voted for Donald Trump in the 2016 Presidential election, while 39.9 percent said they voted for Hillary Clinton. On election day, 48.2 percent of all votes cast went to Hillary Clinton, while Donald Trump took 46.1 percent.

Morris told Breitbart News that this is exactly the kind of poll results on this question you would expect to see nine months after the November election. Those who supported the winning candidate would readily recall who they voted for, while some of those who supported the losing candidate would not be eager to remember they backed the loser.

Despite her popular vote margin, Donald Trump easily won an electoral college victory, winning 304 electoral college votes to Hillary Clinton’s 227 electoral college votes. Seven votes were cast by “faithless electors” for other candidates.

Thirty nine percent of respondents completed the online survey on a laptop computer, 32 percent on a desktop, 20.4 percent on a mobile device or cell phone, and 8.1 percent on a tablet.

Demographically, the breakdown was as follows: 71 percent White, 12.1 percent African American, 11.1 percent Hispanic, four percent Asian, and 1.8 percent Other.

Politically, 36 percent were Democrats, 33 pecent Republicans, and 31 percent Independents.

Eighty-one percent of respondents said they used Facebook, 39.1 percent used Twitter, 29.4 percent used Instagram, 28.2 percent used Pinterest, 27.3 percent used Google Plus, 21.6 percent used Linked-In, and 18.6 percent used SnapChat.

I have never believed the 'mainstream media polls' that said President Trump's poll numbers were low. I always believed his numbers were high because of all of the (good) that he's done for the country

We will never get the Truth from the Lying Media! Whenever they do decide to tell the truth we don't believe them anyway!

That our President is more popular than the Media gives him credit for is certainly no surprise to most of us that are so proud of him. The Media is so biased and fake that I seldom believe anything they report.

He has to be more popular when he's doing such a great job, fake news...

I've always liked Dick Morris, especially since he distanced himself from the Clintons. He's one of those I consider to be about as "fair and balanced" as possible.

If I was Trump the only thing I would do is push to prosecute the Clinton;s, Clinton Foundation, State Department needs to be purged. The Country has to be free of the Clinton scourge on Democracy. Bill & Hill can share a cell.

I DON'T BELIEVE OR TRUST ANY OF THESE POLLS. THESE ARE THE SAME POLLS THAT SAID HILLERY WAS AHEAD OF POTUS BY DOUBLE DIGITS. THEY NEED TO GET A BETTER SYSTEM.

Nikki Haley Breaks with Trump: ‘We Shouldn’t Have Followed Him, and We Shouldn’t Have Listened to Him’

Published

on

Nikki Haley, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, believes that former President Donald Trump “let us down.”

Haley’s remarks come as the former president’s legal team prepares to present its defense of Trump during his second impeachment trial in the Senate.

In a Politico interview published Friday, Haley, former South Carolina governor, said that “we shouldn’t have followed” Trump.

“We need to acknowledge he let us down,” she said in an extensive profile. “He went down a path he shouldn’t have, and we shouldn’t have followed him, and we shouldn’t have listened to him. And we can’t let that ever happen again.”

She also told the outlet that she has not spoken to Trump since the Jan. 6 riots at the U.S. Capitol, and takes issue with his remarks condemning former Vice President Mike Pence’s refusal to reject the Electoral College vote.

“When I tell you I’m angry, it’s an understatement,” she expressed. “I am so disappointed in the fact that [despite] the loyalty and friendship he had with Mike Pence, that he would do that to him. Like, I’m disgusted by it.”

The former ambassador, who many people are speculating may run for the White House in 2024, also added that Trump will never accept the results of the 2020 presidential election.

“There’s nothing that you’re ever going to do that’s going to make him feel like he legitimately lost the election,” she explained. “He’s got a big bully pulpit. He should be responsible with it.”

Haley also warned that many people still love the former president and will not stop supporting him just because he is out of office.

“I know how much people love Donald Trump,” she admitted. “I know it. I feel it. Whether it’s an RNC room or social media or talking to donors, I can tell you that the love they have for him is still very strong. That’s not going to just fall to the wayside. Nor do I think the Republican Party is going to go back to the way it was before Donald Trump. I don’t think it should.”

Haley added that people, instead, should “take the good that he built, leave the bad that he did, and get back to a place where we can be a good, valuable, effective party.”

“[I]t’s bigger than the party,” she insisted. “I hope our country can come together and figure out how we pull this back.”

Referring to Haley’s possible 2024 ambitions, Politico’s Tim Alberta wrote, “Since last fall, I’ve spent nearly six hours talking with Haley on-the-record. I’ve also spoken with nearly 70 people who know her: friends, associates, donors, staffers, former colleagues. From those conversations, two things are clear. First, Nikki Haley is going to run for president in 2024. Second, she doesn’t know which Nikki Haley will be on the ballot.”

Haley also said that she didn’t believe Trump had a chance of winning in a 2024 election scenario.

“I don’t think he can,” she admitted. “He’s fallen so far.”

“I think his business is suffering at this point,” she added. “I think he’s lost any sort of political viability he was going to have. I think he’s lost his social media, which meant the world to him. I mean, I think he’s lost the things that really could have kept him moving.”

The montage went on for 13 minutes. (The video montage starts at 7:10 timeframe.)

WATCH: Trump Attorneys Destroy House Managers on Lying to American Public and Using Manipulated Tweet as Evidence

Published

on

President Trump’s defense team took the floor of the US Senate on Friday in defense of President Trump in the Senate impeachment trial.

Trump Attorney David Schoen absolutely destroyed the House Managers when he took to the floor of the US Senate.

At one point Schoen played video of the Democrat lawmakers lying about a Trump tweet.

House Impeachment Manager Eric Swalwell gave a riveting performance on Wednesday reading off Trump’s tweets with emotional appeal.

During this theatrical performance, Swalwell read off a Trump retweet by Jennifer Lynn Lawrence.

But there was one problem with the tweet. It was photoshopped.

Jennifer Lynn Lawrence has never been verified by Twitter. Democrats faked that to make it look more important.

On Friday Trump Attorney David Schoen destroyed Democrats for lying about this to the American public.

White House Suspends Deputy Press Secretary For Allegedly Sexually Harassing, Threatening Reporter

Published

on

The White House announced on Friday that it was suspending Deputy Press Secretary TJ Ducklo after a report surfaced alleging that he sexually harassed and threatened a female reporter who was getting ready to publish a report revealing that he was dating a reporter who had previously been tasked with covering Democrat Joe Biden.

“The confrontation began on Inauguration Day, January 20, after [Politico reporter Tara] Palmeri, a coauthor of Politico’s Playbook, contacted [Axios political reporter Alexi] McCammond for comment while one of her male colleagues left a message for Ducklo,” Vanity Fair reported. “Ducklo subsequently called a Playbook editor to object to the story, but was told to call the Playbook reporters with his concerns. But instead of calling the male reporter who initially contacted him, Ducklo tried to intimidate Palmeri by phone in an effort to kill the story. ‘I will destroy you,’ Ducklo told her, according to the sources, adding that he would ruin her reputation if she published it.”

“During the off-the-record call, Ducklo made derogatory and misogynistic comments, accusing Palmeri of only reporting on his relationship—which, due to the ethics questions that factor into the relationship between a journalist and White House official, falls under the purview of her reporting beat—because she was ‘jealous’ that an unidentified man in the past had ‘wanted to f***’ McCammond ‘and not you,’” the report added. “Ducklo also accused Palmeri of being ‘jealous’ of his relationship with McCammond.”

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said following the report that Ducklo has been suspended for a week over the incident.

“TJ Ducklo has apologized to the reporter, with whom he had a heated conversation about his personal life,” Psaki wrote on Twitter. “He is the first to acknowledge this is not the standard of behavior set out by the President.”

“In addition to his initial apology, he has sent the reporter a personal note expressing his profound regret,” she continued. “With the approval of the White House Chief of Staff, he has been placed on a one-week suspension without pay. In addition, when he returns, he will no longer be assigned to work with any reporters at Politico.”

Reporters called out the administration over the incident, highlighting how the Trump administration did not treat reporters that way as well as issues with the timeline of events with regard to the White House taking action to address the incident.

“The Vanity Fair piece indicates that Politico editors reached to the WH after the incident first occurred and the WH acknowledged it was inappropriate,” Spectator editor Amber Athey wrote on Twitter. “But they clearly didn’t have any interest in disciplining Ducklo until his behavior was made public.”

New York Magazine reporter Olivia Nuzzi wrote on Twitter: “I covered Donald Trump for 6 years. It is saying something that this behavior — from a Biden official — shocks me.”

Grabien founder Tom Elliott highlighted the following remarks that Biden made a few weeks ago: “If you’re ever working with me and I hear you treat another colleague with disrespect, talk down to someone, I promise you I will fire you on the spot, on the spot. No if, ands, or buts. Everybody — everybody is entitled to be treated with decency & dignity.”

CNN anchor Jake Tapper responded to the quote, writing: “Standards that are not upheld are not standards. They’re lies.”
