Skip to comments.Media Fail: Only 23 Percent Believe Stormy Daniels Is Important Issue
Posted on 04/11/2018 8:26:21 AM PDT by Hojczyk
Despite weekss of media hype about porn star Stormy Daniels, not only has President Trumps job approval rating jumped in the latest Quinnipiac poll, but only 23 percent of Americans believe the alleged affair is an important issue. A massive majority of 73 percent say it is not.
Even 51 percent of Democrats agree it is not an important issue, along with 79 percent of Independents. Moreover, there is also no notable gender gap on the question.In worse news for the media, although Trump denies the affair, by a margin of 58 14 percent they believe do not believe but they still do not care.
By a margin of 59 24 percent, people also believe Trump knew about the $130,000 payoff to silence Daniels (Trump denies being told about it). But by a margin of 59 38 percent, they say Trumps possible knowledge of the payoff is not an important issue this includes 63 percent of Independents. And again there is notable gender gap on the question.
Quinnipiac sums up the Stormy findings this way, Yes he did it. No we dont care. A big yawn from voters on Stormy Daniels, President Trump and the payoff.
For the first time in a year, in this particular poll (which always overestimates Democrats), Trumps job approval rating hopped over 40 percent to 41 percent. The presidents disapproval rating is 52 percent.
Trump is close to even on his handling of the economy, with 47 approving of his job on that particular issue and 48 percent disapproving. There is a similar 46 47 percent split on his handling of taxes.
Trump is upside down, however, by fairly wide margins on foreign policy (39 55 percent), immigration (42 55 percent), and trade (40 52 percent).

Uh....it doesnt matter what the public is interested in or feel is important or not. The Deep State wants to remove Trump by any means necessary and the public be damned. Mueller wont be punished by it, hell just go back to private practice or line up a squishy job....etc
“By a margin of 59 24 percent, people also believe Trump knew about the $130,000 payoff to silence Daniels...”
President Trump never knew about the alleged payment because it probably never happened.
One of my friends put it well:
“I don’t care who he’s banging, powerful men will do what they do. I care about my tax cut, building a wall and how the DJIA is doing. If you can’t put numbers on it who cares?”
Because it’s not an important issue. I wonder who the 23% are? Any conservatives who think that character issues are important in a president?
Totally unimportant. Can’t wait for the salacious stuff!
CNN and scum Anderson Cooper must be so disappointed.
How many people really cared about Watergate?
They just got tired of constantly hearing about it, so they just wanted Nixon to leave to make it stop.
That’s precisely what’s going on here.
Anyway, weve already been through this kind of thing when it should have mattered, and a sitting president lied under oath about it. The media and the pundits, at that time, declared that neither the affair nor the lying mattered. So, they shouldnt be surprised at the publics lack of reaction now-they themselves laid the groundwork for it.
And of the media were to try to cover every woman with whom President Trump ever slept, theyd have no time left to misinterpret and lie about his policy decisions. That would probably be a mercy for those of us who support his stated campaign promises.
WGAS? “Its about the economy stupid!”, not about some overly made up bimbo looking to get an additional 15 minutes of fame. Who cares about some porn star looking for publicity over a one night event that may or may not have occurred. 79% of Independents see through it. Its only the Trump haters who are looking to grab on to anything that will get him out. Remember, he hurt the Queen of hearts feelings by winning an election, and ruining her planned coronation. Her followers want revenge because their numbers were greater. Forget the EC, its the votes that counted, be they legal or not.
It helps that her lawyer is a pure idiot.
While it is analogous to some of the material in my nove, where the New York Times seeks to destroy the candidacy of my protagonist, I am really taken aback that so many would fail to see the absurdity of trying to peek into a leading citizen's intimate personal business, in order to elevate some one totally lacking in a sense of what is appropriate's, attention seeking.
"...73% feel it is not an important issue..."
24% are idiots.
the 23 percent who think it is a big issue either work for CNN, MSNBC, or are Never Trumpers. I haven’t encountered anyone who is even interested in this or the Russia collusion delusion.
I’m not concerned in the least with whether or not President Trump had consensual sex with some porn star a decade ago, but I am very concerned with with raping that I and everyone else have been forced to endure by our current political class.
That rape appeared to come to end the day President Trump took office and since that day, our political class has done their best to remove Trump from office so they can re open their rape rooms on the American people.
Trump has exposed Washington as full of corrupt, incompetent politicians , many of whom have never had a real life day job and probably could keep a real, results orientated job to save their life.
I for one, am very happy about having a President who is actually acting in the interests of everyday Americans and who puts first.
I have no doubt the our scum bag Pols will re open the rape rooms the minute Donald Trump is forced from office and that the reason they are openly framing a sitting President to remove him from office is because Trump shut them down.
FWIW, I seriously doubt that Stormy actually had a sexual relationship with Donald Trump for one very significant reason. Even when Trump was single, he required any woman he dated to sign an NDA before he would go out with her.
Not very romantic perhaps but The Donald is a Billionaire media super star and chasing Trump was, at least to some degree, a business proposition for many interested young ladies back in the day
Stormy Daniels obviously never signed an NDA with Trump at the time she claims she had an affair with Trump, and it’s hard to reconcile Trump insisting some super model or movie star sign and NDA and then not do the same with a porn star who is a professional for whom it is SOP to sign a contract before having sex.
Not interested-good call!
