A new Harvard Harris poll has found that a solid majority of American voters believe Putin would not have invaded Ukraine if Donald Trump was still president.
That finding includes 38 percent of Democrats.
You read that right. After five years of Democrats and the media calling Trump an agent of Russia, most Americans, including a significant portion of Democrat voters, think Putin would not have dared to do this if Trump was still the commander in chief.
That’s just stunning.
The Hill reports:
62 percent of voters say Putin wouldn’t have invaded Ukraine if Trump were president: poll
A majority of American voters say that Russian President Vladimir Putin would not have invaded Ukraine had former President Trump still been in office, according to a new survey released on Friday.
A new Harvard Center for American Political Studies (CAPS)-Harris Poll survey released Friday found that 62 percent of those polled believed Putin would not be moving against Ukraine if Trump had been president. When looking strictly at the answers of Democrats and Republicans, 85 percent of Republicans and 38 percent of Democrats answered this way.
However, 38 percent of all Americans polled believed that Putin would have invaded Ukraine even if Trump had been president.
A majority of Americans polled — 59 percent — also said they believed that the Russian president moved on Ukraine because Putin saw weakness in President Biden, while 41 percent said that it was not a factor in Putin’s decision to invade Ukraine.
Do you think anyone in Washington, DC or in the newsrooms of CNN and MSNBC have looked at this poll and wondered where they went wrong?
Will any of them admit that their efforts to demonize Trump have failed, even with almost 40 percent of Democrat voters?
Of course they won’t. They are not dealing in reality.
They prove it every day.
