Media is out of touch on issues Americans care about
...I think the media is still surprised that they have been so ineffective in pushing the Russian narrative. It is probably going to take another election win by Trump to convince them to move on.
According to Bloomberg’s polling, the media is giving 75% of its attention to the Russia investigation and only 6% of Americans think that is the most important news of the day. 35% of Americans think healthcare is the most important news and the media is giving that only 4% of its attention. On top of that, 10% of the public thinks immigration is the biggest issue and the media is giving zero coverage to that topic.
If the President gets his wall and gets a GOP win on healthcare, he probably thinks he can do whatever he wants on the Russia investigation. Like it or not, he is going to be President for a while and as the media continues to chase this story, the public continues to not give a damn about it.
So many, myself included, truly thought Trump could not win last November. But he did. Perhaps he actually understands the American people better than us and knows he can continue to ride public apathy for a story only the media and left seem to truly care about.
