Another Intentionally Misleading Title by Woodsmen.
Original Title"Hillary Clinton’s Appeal Survives Scrutiny, Poll Says"The Woodsmen Title"69% Republicans: Businesses Should Be Able to Refuse Gays"H
is title change is based on 1 paragraph out of the entire 26 paragraphs
and the statistics of the article are all debatable with contradictory data easily found with a quick web search.Finding this brings up a more important issue than one member's propensity for creating false and misleading headlines. So this is the end of talking about Woodsman. T
he full quote is below (it's the same old wedding cake drama you've read before)❝
In addition, 69 percent of Republicans
say small-business owners who provide wedding-related services should be able to refuse, on the basis of their religious belief, such services to same-sex couples. But 58 percent of Democrats

his poll doesn't seem to include the largest percentage of voters; Independents who make up 42% of voters. if you don't think the opinions of Independents don't matter in politics then you're fooling yourself. You being manipulated by the biased two party media into conceiving of politics as a simplistic "us against them" - Republican vs Democrat- good vs evil fantasy that is better suited for video games about castles dragons and kings.
et's take a look at what lies one level below the above figures cited in Woodsman's article.
69% of Republicans (x 26% =18% of voters
42% of Democrats (x 31% = 13% of voters
) Totaled = ONLY 31% of voters who DO NOT SUPPORT forcing businesses to selling wedding cakes to gays.
Does that give you an idea of how important Independent voters' opinions and votes really are?N
ow start asking yourself why they are not factored in to all polls. The minds of 57% of voters will not change because they are party loyalists. The media is geared to influencing the opinions of the 42% of Independents who have no allegiance to either party and predominantly vote on issues not ideology by presenting every issue as simplistic "us against them" - Conservative vs Liberal- good vs evil fantasy battle to the death attempting to compel Independents to take sides.W
hy the fuck do you guys, Republicans and Democrats, keep falling for it? It's not about you. It's about us Independents.
More coming later, maybe.
