    More than half of those who consume news from legacy media outlets CNN and MSNBC believe Hispanics are becoming more conservative at the ballot box because they are soaking up "disinformation," even as those same viewers buy into false narratives, according to a new poll.

    The survey, conducted between August 22-25 by WPA Intelligence, asked 1,000 participants what they think is contributing to the Hispanic trend toward Republicans. Fifty-seven percent of MSNBC viewers said the spread of "disinformation" was causing Hispanics to vote conservative, while 54% of CNN viewers came to the same conclusion. Another 16% of MSNBC respondents and one-fifth of CNN respondents said Hispanics have "internalized racism" and a "desire to fit into white society," causing them to lean Republican.

    "Common sense says that misinformation isn't limited to any one side of the political aisle, yet so much of the media's attention focuses on falsehoods on the political Right," WPA Principal and Managing Director Conor Maguire told The Daily Wire. "So, we wanted to explore how common conspiracy theories and falsehoods are among left-wing voters."

    A further breakdown of the survey showed that 61% of Biden voters and 60% of white Democrats believe Hispanics are being duped into voting Republican. Only around 30% of Biden voters and white Democrats think more Hispanics are leaning Right because they are actually socially conservative.

    Along with asking left-leaning respondents about the disinformation supposedly contributing to the conservative leanings of Hispanics, the poll also gauged how many CNN and MSNBC viewers have themselves bought into false stories.

    Of regular CNN viewers, 38% say it's somewhat or mostly true that former Russian President Vladimir Putin stole the election for Donald Trump, and nearly half, 45%, of MSNBC viewers believe Trump benefited from a stolen election in 2016. Following constant prodding and investigations into the Trump campaign and administration, the Russian collusion narrative turned out to be nothing more than a failed attempt by legacy media outlets and Democrats to explain Trump's victory over Hillary Clinton.

    The WPA poll also asked CNN and MSNBC fans if they thought Florida banned the word "gay" in all public schools as a result of passing its "Parental Rights in Education" bill. A staggering 64% of CNN viewers, 63% of MSNBC viewers, and two-thirds of all Democratic respondents said it is somewhat or mostly true that Florida banned the utterance of the word "gay" in schools. As previously reported by The Daily Wire, the Florida bill simply prohibits teachers in K-3rd grade from teaching on sexual orientation and gender identity.

    Another 38% of CNN consumers and 30% of MSNBC viewers think the Florida government requires university professors to register their political party with the state, a false claim spread by leftist website Salon.

    "Our poll found that significant shares of Democrats, self-described liberals and CNN and MSNBC viewers believe things that are objectively untrue - from thinking the 2016 election was stolen by Russia to the baseless belief that Florida requires university professors and students to register their political views with the state," Maguire commented. "The corporate media's partisan and narrow focus on myths on the Right has clearly given Democrats and [their] allies a pass on their own falsehoods."

    The online WPA survey also found that 22% of Democrats agreed with the statement, "Some men can get pregnant," The Daily Wire reported. The percentage rose when only including women, and a whopping 36% of white, college-educated female Democrats concurred.

Where do you stand on the wanton censorship by Big Tech Platforms, while retaining their Section 230 carveout indemnifying them for Slander /Defamation lawsuits and Copyright infringements?
  Big Tech Platforms have the right to Censor all speech providing they voluntarily relinquish their Section 230 Carveout.
  Big Tech Platforms DO NOT have the right to Censor any speech, while retaining multiple indemnifications by virtue of the Section 230 Carveout.
  I know nothing of this 230 talk, but "I do love me some social media".

Since only about 20% of the News Media has any shred of Journalistic Integrity remaining: How does our Constitutional Republic continue without a "Free Press"?
  Demand real information, using real sources, backed up by facts.
  Promote real journalist entities only, and admonish those that prostitute their profession.
  We Democratic Socialists are doing just fine, thank-you, by promoting lies while having very little real knowledge about so much.

Considering that Joe Biden is considered by so many to be the Imposter President: Is he actually knowledgeable enough, wise enough, patriotic enough to be this Constitutional Republic's president at this difficult point in these tumultuous times?
  Yes, Mr. Biden is thoughtful and kind, and just so different from the "Orange Man".
  No, this representation of "president" is either too corrupt, too stupid, or both to be a real president.
  I just want the fun guy, who knew how to make stuff work back.

Inarguably, the policies of the Democrats in congress and Joe Biden as the Executive is plunging the United States into a recession, if we are not already there; a recession that was completely avoidable. Will abrupt changes in policies occur in time?
  Yes, the Democrats have a bold plan, yet to be revealed, to save us.
  No, there will have to be a complete undoing of the damage done by these Democrats.
  I can't do simple math, so how am I to understand the concept of basic economics.
