Trump’s online support is inflated, he lost the popular vote, he’s the only POTUS who never cracked 50% Gallup approval, and 60%+ disapprove.
Media has never treated his base like the minority they are.
This creates a falsely equivalent depiction of reality.
Accurate coverage of the current state of affairs would be to interview Americans about how they feel about the country’s slide into authoritarianism.
Instead, they interview Trump supporters about how much they love him.
For example, instead of interviewing white Trump supporters about whether they think his racist remarks are racist, interview a black woman.
In some cases, we see his extreme stances are only supported by 20-30% of Americans. We’re talking minority rule here.
Not to mention, there’s evidence his base is shrinking. rantt.com/as-trump-gover…
