(PresidentialInsider.com)- The polls have already showed us that former President Donald Trump remains the frontrunner to take the GOP’s presidential nomination, but ABC 13 News did their own investigation to see whether those polls are right…and apparently, they are.
News 13 recently aired an interview with a group of six Republican voters in Macon County, North Carolina, to discuss their concerns about the Joe Biden presidency and who they would like to see represent the Republican Party in 2024.
You can watch the clip here.
71-year-old Robert Shook told the news outlet that he was pleased that America went four whole years with no new wars under President Donald Trump, and expressed frustration with President Joe Biden’s handling of foreign affairs.
“The war drums are beating’,” he said. “I blame the president for that.”
He wasn’t the only GOP voter concerned about the war in Ukraine, either. 13 News included a slight dig at the voters, noting how Macon County is “thousands of miles away from the horrors of war” in Ukraine, but what the outlet didn’t point out is that Americans are being hit financially by the war. Whether it’s the fuel supply crisis or the fact that the U.S. government is sending billions of dollars to Ukraine, it’s having a big impact on voters here at home.
Paul Higdon, a Macon County commissioner, also told the news outlet that inflation being at a “record high” is a problem, while 45-year-old karate teacher Danny Antoine said, “look at where our fuel prices are.”
The news outlet then wrongly claims that former President Donald Trump incited the January 6 riot – an unsubstantiated claim – before revealing that the GOP voters they spoke to were overwhelmingly in favor of President Donald Trump returning to the White House.
They can’t even get through a single news piece asking local people their opinions without injecting their own unsubstantiated accusations about the former president, can they?
