17% of Biden Voters Would Not Have Voted for Him Had They Known Scandals Liberal Media Censored


The left-wing news media didn’t just poison the information environment with their incessantly negative coverage of President Trump going into the 2020 election. They also refused to give airtime to important arguments of the Republican campaign — both pro-Trump and anti-Biden — which meant millions of voters cast their ballots knowing only what the media permitted them to know about the candidates.

To measure the true effect of the media’s censorship on the election, the Media Research Center asked The Polling Company to survey 1,750 Biden voters in seven swing states (Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin), six of which (all but North Carolina) were called for Biden (survey details below). We tested these voters’ knowledge of eight news stories — all important topics that our ongoing analysis had shown the liberal news media had failed to cover properly. We found that a huge majority (82%) of Biden voters were unaware of at least one of these key items, with five percent saying they were unaware of all eight of the issues we tested.
This lack of information proved crucial: One of every six Biden voters we surveyed (17%) said they would have abandoned the Democratic candidate had they known the facts about one or more of these news stories. A shift of this magnitude would have changed the outcome in all six of the swing states won by Joe Biden, and Donald Trump would have comfortably won a second term as president.
Here’s what we found:

■ Burying Biden’s Bad News: The media’s censorship of Biden’s scandals had the strongest impact on this year’s election. According to our survey, more than one-third of Biden voters (35.4%) were unaware of the serious allegations brought against the Democratic nominee by Tara Reade, a former staffer who said Biden sexually assaulted her in the 1990s.
If they had known about Tara Reade’s sexual assault allegations, 8.9% told us they would have changed their vote — either switching to Trump or a 3rd party candidate, not voting for any presidential candidate, or not voting at all. By itself, this would have flipped all six of the swing states won by Biden (Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin), giving the President a win with 311 electoral college votes.
Even more Biden voters (45.1%) said they were unaware of the financial scandal enveloping Biden and his son, Hunter (a story infamously censored by Twitter and Facebook, as well as ignored by the liberal media). According to our poll, full awareness of the Hunter Biden scandal would have led 9.4% of Biden voters to abandon the Democratic candidate, flipping all six of the swing states he won to Trump, giving the President 311 electoral votes.
The ticket’s left-wing ideology was another issue barely mentioned by the national press. A GovTrack analysis found Biden’s running mate, California Senator Kamala Harris, had the most left-wing record of any Senator in 2019 (even more than self-described socialist Bernie Sanders). Our poll found that 25.3% of Biden voters said they didn’t know about Senator Harris’s left-wing ideology. If voters had the complete story, it would have led 4.1% of Biden voters to change their vote, flipping Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin to Trump. The result would have been a Trump victory, with 295 electoral college votes.
■ Hiding Trump’s Successes: The liberal media also prevented many Biden voters from learning about record-breaking positive economic news in the months leading up to the election. The five pre-election jobs reports from June 5 to October 2 showed a record 11,161,000 jobs were created in the extraordinary snapback from the pandemic recession. Yet a large number of Biden voters (39.4%) said they didn’t know about this achievement. If they had, 5.4% said they would have changed their vote; this would have swung Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin to Trump, who would have won with 295 electoral votes.

On October 29, the government reported a huge jump in economic growth — 33.1% on an annual basis, double the previous record. Yet nearly half of Biden voters (49.0%) said they had no idea about this record-breaking achievement. Armed with that information, 5.6% said they would have changed their vote, swinging Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin and a total of 295 electoral votes to Trump.
We saw the same effect when it came to foreign policy. The President and his team made history by brokering peace agreements with Israel and several of her Arab neighbors — one reason Trump received three nominations for the Nobel Peace Prize. Yet 43.5% of Biden voters had no idea about these historic agreements. The information would have led five percent of overall Biden voters to change their vote, putting Trump in front in Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, for a total of 295 electoral votes.
Energy independence was another Trump success. The President took action to start long-stalled pipeline projects and expand drilling offshore and in the Arctic, and it paid off with America becoming a net exporter of oil for the first time in September 2019. More than half (50.5%) of Biden voters said they did not know about this important accomplishment, either. If the information was known by all, 5.8% of Biden’s voters say they would have changed how they voted. This would have changed the outcome in Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, putting Trump in front with 295 electoral college votes.
One important issue that did get a lot of coverage in 2020: the coronavirus pandemic. But what made the news every night was criticism of the President and his administration. Lost in the blistering barrage of bad news were successes such as Operation Warp Speed, which even before the election was well on track to deliver 300,000,000 doses of a safe vaccine as soon as next year.
Our poll found 36.1% of Biden voters said they did not know about the administration’s key role in promoting vaccine research through Operation Warp Speed. If they had, 5.3% told us they would have abandoned Biden, flipping Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, giving the President 295 electoral votes.
■ Putting It All Together: Looking at all eight of these issues together, our poll found that a total of 17% of Biden’s voters told us they would have changed their vote if they had been aware of one or more of these important stories. This would have moved every one of the swing states into Trump’s column, some by a huge margin. The President would have trounced Biden in the electoral college, 311 to 227.




In Pennsylvania, 15% of Biden voters said they would have defected. Using the reported vote totals as of noon on November 19, this would have reduced his total by 518,204 votes, flipping the state to Trump. In Michigan, the percentage who would have left Biden was 14%, deducting 392,966 from his tally and flipping that state, too.

In Georgia, 15% of Biden’s voters say they would have defected based on full information, taking 370,838 votes out of his column, and putting Trump comfortably ahead. In Arizona, 21% say they would have changed their vote, deducting 351,150 from Biden’s column and putting Trump in front there, too.
In Wisconsin, Biden would have lost 13% of his voters, taking away 211,987 from his column. In Nevada, the percentage of those who would have left Biden was 18%, or 126,627 voters. Such a shift would have put both of those states in Trump’s column, too.
[In the final state we polled, North Carolina, 21% of Biden’s voters say they would have changed their minds, deducting 563,703 votes from his total and significantly bolstering Trump’s margin of victory in that state.]
It’s important to note that not all of these voters would have switched to President Trump, of course (although about 6% of Biden’s voters say that’s exactly what they would have done). Just by choosing to abandon Biden, these voters would have handed all six of these states, and a second term, to the President — if the news media had properly informed them about the two candidates.
The most basic principle of our electoral system is that our leaders are chosen by the people themselves. But if the people are given systematically one-sided information, with crucial facts omitted, then the real power to choose has been stolen from them.
This unique study of the media and voters suggests that’s exactly what happened in 2020.
For this report, The Polling Company conducted a national survey of 1,750 individuals living in Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin who reported voting for Joe Biden in the 2020 election.
The survey was conducted entirely online, between November 9-18, 2020. The poll has an accuracy of +/- 2.34% at a 95% confidence interval.

President Harry S. Truman said: “The fundamental basis of this nation’s laws was given to Moses on the Mount.  The fundamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from the teachings…  If we don't have the proper fundamental moral background, we will finally wind up with a totalitarian government which does not believe in rights for anybody except the state.”

All that survey really points out is that we have a largely uninformed public, and that is true on both sides of the aisle.  All of those items, both positive and negative, have been covered in the press, and if someone is unaware of them, that is due to their lack of curiosity rather than some huge conspiracy to suppress the information. 
This polling company had an agenda, so it is very easy to ask biased questions of people that admit they know nothing about the subject and help shape their opinion.

First question in the survey:
At the time you cast your vote for president, were you aware that under President Trump's policies the U.S. last year became energy independent – exporting more crude oil than we imported – for the first time in recorded history. 
51% were unaware, but the question is framed to give Trump all the credit for this, and the article even cites starting long-stalled pipeline projects and drilling in the Arctic as contributing to this.  Well, none of the pipeline projects have been completed, and drilling in the Arctic hasn't started, so how has that increased our oil production?  In fact, it is argued that Trump's inept handling of the Pipeline projects has likely doomed their chances.  On a personal note, I hope the Biden Administration is able to stop the plans for drilling in ANWR.  I am a big naturalist, and I think land like that needs to be preserved.
How Overreach by Trump Administration Derailed Big Pipeline Projects - Yale E360
Giving Trump huge credit for this is like giving Obama credit for the huge expansion of fracking that occurred during his administration.  


As for Hunter Biden's laptop scandal, those wild conspiracies were brought forward by the same deranged lawyer that is spouting all kinds of wild election fraud theories, and by accused con man Steve Bannon.  It was covered in the media, but the people raising the claims had very little credibility, and most people surveyed felt that Trump was more corrupt than Biden, so it never really struck a chord with the public.

As for the economic numbers, if they framed the questions to show the huge job losses under Trump, and the fact that he is the first President in modern history to have a net job loss under his Administration, how many of his voters that didn't realize that would change their mind? 

The allegations of sexual assault by Biden were covered, but if the question was framed about the 26 instances of sexual assault and 43 instances of inappropriate behavior by Trump, how many of his voters would have changed their mind?

As for Mideast Peace, the question was:
At the time you cast your vote for president, did you know that the president had negotiated three different peace agreements between Arab countries and Israel, something never done before, and for which he’s been nominated for three separate Nobel Peace Prizes?
That is an misleading question, because the three Nobel Peace prize nominations were not linked to the three peace agreements.  I don't think the peace agreements are necessarily a bad thing, although we don't really have the details on what the US gave up to achieve it.  I know we are selling some advanced military equipment to the UAE, which may not be a good thing.  Anyway, I am willing to guess 98% of Americans couldn't find Bahrain, the UAE and Sudan on a world map (Most probably couldn't find Israel either).

I think Trump deserves some credit for Operation Warp Speed, but it is his fault he was unable to articulate what the program was doing and his administration's role in that during the campaign.

Actually there was very little coverage in the US besides Fox, BBC and other foreign press gave it decent coverage.

MSM ignored the gain s he made, the roaring back of the economy, what it did in the minority communities and when forced to cover it downplayed it all or gave credit to someone else

By MSM, maybe late night. Biden was given a lass in any Q&A sessions by the press, his townhall hosts, etc.

As for Mideast Peace, the question was:
At the time you cast your vote for president, did you know that the president had negotiated three different peace agreements between Arab countries and Israel, something never done before, and for which he’s been nominated for three separate Nobel Peace Prizes?

Such much bs I don't know where to begin.

Yeah the WH did in the dailey briefings that you did not see covered on MSNBC, CNN, etc


You can tell your Uncle Joe he is not my President. Nor is his queen my vp

ANWR drilling is no more than a pimple....one acre out of every 10,000.....
No visitors that far north and no animals will notice.

19 million acres is roughly 30,000 square miles.
The state of Tennessee is about 41,000 square miles.
That implies drilling on about 2800 acres in the entire state - about the size of one large farm for the entire state.

You can't drill on those 2000 acres in a vacuum.  You will need infrastructure to get the necessary materials to the drill sites, you have to transport the oil out to Prudhoe Bay, and their is always the risk of an accident that could cause catastrophic environmental damage.  
I have never been to ANWR, but hope to go some day.  Prince William Sound still hasn't fully recovered 31 years after the Valdez accident, and I would prefer that we leave that pristine land as untouched as possible.

You'd be one of the very few.
The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge gets about 1,500 visitors a year.  Total.

And frankly, I think it a moot point.  With oil at less than $50 per barrel, it is uneconomic to drill there.  Of course, if Biden bans fracking, we could see prices rise much higher, resulting in making ANWR economic again....

Oh, I know.  My next trip to Alaska I want to go to Kobuk Valley National Park (14,000 visitors), and Gates of the Arctic National Park (9,500 visitors) as well as ANWR, all above the Arctic Circle.  I need to do it soon, because that really is a young man's trip, and I have already passed that stage of life.  I know it's irrational, but I really want the Alaskan Wilderness to be protected as much as possible.

Good point about Liberals being woefully uninformed.

Totally uninformed would be closer to the truth.

Totally misinformed is more like it.
