Following Joe Biden’s off speech before a reduced joint session of Congress yesterday, CBS News and YouGov released a poll showing 85% of Americans liked the speech and said it gave them hope for the future. This morning, progressives on Twitter were quite proud that their guy performed so well and that his message resonated. Allegedly.
85% of Americans approved of what President Biden had to say in his address to the Nation. It’s time for Republicans in Congress, who stand for nothing, to get out of the way and let the majority rule.

85% of Americans approve of the agenda President Biden laid out to them last night.
End the obstruction in the Senate and lets get it done.

But conservatives were skeptical. Even if we ignore the near-impossibility of any speech by anyone appealing to 85% of a wide-ranging poll, especially with the hyper-polarized political landscape in American, it’s still hard to fathom that so many would have liked THAT speech. It was incoherent at times, failed to address the border crisis which is top-of-mind for millions of Americans, threatened unpopular gun control being imposed on us, and was arguably the most radically leftist speech given by a sitting president in history.
85% of Americans endorse that? How could that be? As it turned out, the poll wasn’t exactly the most unbiased, and I’m being delicate with my words. The truth of the poll is that it was a propaganda piece, a heavily biased and meticulously coordinated attack on our intelligence. Democrats outnumbered Republicans more than three-to-one and left-leaning “independents” made up as much as a quarter of the total surveyed.
According to The National Pulse:
In a stunningly duplicitous story aimed at shoring up the response to Biden’s speech, CBS claimed on television and on their website: “Most viewers who tuned in to watch President Biden’s speech liked what they heard and came away feeling optimistic about America.”
What they didn’t tell their viewers, nor readers, is that the poll was wildly biased towards self-identifying “Democrats” and traditionally left-leaning “Independents” and self-described “Moderates”.
They polled 510 Democrats, and just 169 Republicans. They added 235 “Independents” to the methodology, which also usually skew left. A further 3 percent were not identified.
One might want to give CBS and YouGov the benefit of the doubt by saying they had a bad draw with the 943 people they surveyed. Except, they didn’t survey 943. They surveyed 10,420 and then hand-selected the respondents they wanted to include in their “scientific” poll. In other words, they could have just as easily picked out only those who didn’t like the speech and made it 100% negative and it would have been just as valid.
They didn’t conduct a survey for the sake of data. They performed what appeared to be a survey and then crafted it to fit their narrative knowing their adoring fans like Rob Reiner and Dean Obeidallah would echo whatever number they selected.
Conservatives reacted negatively to the notion well before the truth was revealed.
According to CBS 85% of Americans approved of B1den’s speech last night.

CBS say 85% of Americans approved of Biden’s Speech. That’s complete Bullshit.
CBS gets 1000 Pinocchios out of a possible 4.

So CBS says that 85% of Americans approved of Joe Biden’s speech last night.
Honestly, just round up to 100% at this point. We all know it’s utter bullcrap.

According to LifeNews:
Three’s an old adage that polling results vary depending on how you ask the question. The results also vary depending on who is asked in the first place.
A new CBS poll claims 85% of Americans liked Joe Biden’s speech to Congress, but the polling firm CBS used totally skewed the results by having very few Republicans participate in the survey. It’s no wonder Americans supposedly enjoyed what the abortion advocate had to say when an overwhelming majority of people polled were not conservatives.
Only 169 Republicans were surveyed out of the nearly 1,000 people in total. That means about three times as many non-Republicans were asked to participate in the poll as Republicans.
Had the poll had a more representative sample of Democrats and Republicans it likely would have found Americans were split on what they heard from Biden last night depending on their party.
Be sure to tell every leftist who’s touting the “85% of Americans” propaganda the truth about the so-called “poll.” They need to be made aware they’re being lied to for the sake of confirmation bias.
‘The Purge’ by Big Tech targets conservatives, including us
Just when we thought the Covid-19 lockdowns were ending and our ability to stay afloat was improving, censorship reared its ugly head.
For the last few months, NOQ Report, Conservative Playbook, and the American Conservative Movement have appealed to our readers for assistance in staying afloat through Covid-19 lockdowns. The downturn in the economy has limited our ability to generate proper ad revenue just as our traffic was skyrocketing. We had our first sustained stretch of three months with over a million visitors in November, December, and January, but February saw a dip.
It wasn’t just the shortened month. We expected that. We also expected the continuation of dropping traffic from “woke” Big Tech companies like Google, Facebook, and Twitter, but it has actually been much worse than anticipated. Our Twitter account was banned. Both of our YouTube accounts were banned. Facebook “fact-checks” everything we post. Spotify canceled us. Medium canceled us. Apple canceled us. Why? Because we believe in the truth prevailing, and that means we will continue to discuss “taboo” topics.
The 2020 presidential election was stolen. You can’t say that on Big Tech platforms without risking cancellation, but we’d rather get cancelled for telling the truth rather than staying around to repeat mainstream media’s lies. They have been covering it up since before the election and they’ve convinced the vast majority of conservative news outlets that they will be harmed if they continue to discuss voter fraud. We refuse to back down. The truth is the truth.
The lies associated with Covid-19 are only slightly more prevalent than the suppression of valid scientific information that runs counter to the prescribed narrative. We should be allowed to ask questions about the vaccines, for example, as there is ample evidence for concern. One does not have to be an “anti-vaxxer” in order to want answers about vaccines that are still considered experimental and that have a track record in a short period of time of having side-effects, including death. One of our stories about the Johnson & Johnson “vaccine” causing blood clots was “fact-checked” and removed one day before the government hit the brakes on it. These questions and news items are not allowed on Big Tech which is just another reason we are getting canceled.
There are more topics that they refuse to allow. In turn, we refuse to stop discussing them. This is why we desperately need your help. The best way NOQ, CP, and ACM readers can help is to donate. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well. We are on track to be short by about $4100 per month in order to maintain operations.
The second way to help is to become a partner. We’ve strongly considered seeking angel investors in the past but because we were paying the bills, it didn’t seem necessary. Now, we’re struggling to pay the bills. We had 5,657,724 sessions on our website from November, 2020, through February, 2021. Our intention is to elevate that to higher levels this year by focusing on a strategy that relies on free speech rather than being beholden to progressive Big Tech companies.
Truly Christian. Truly conservative. Buy gold and silver from a company that does not hate your worldview. Kirk Elliott will deliver to your door or help you protect your retirement with “smart money” bullion… no gimmicks or high-pressure sales tactics.
During that four-month stretch, Twitter and Facebook accounted for about 20% of our traffic. We are actively working on operating as if that traffic is zero, replacing it with platforms that operate more freely such as Gab, Parler, and others. While we were never as dependent on Big Tech as most conservative sites, we’d like to be completely free from them. That doesn’t mean we will block them, but we refuse to be beholden to companies that absolutely despise us simply because of our political ideology.
We’re heading in the right direction and we believe we’re ready talk to patriotic investors who want to not only “get in on the action” but more importantly who want to help America hear the truth. Interested investors should contact me directly with the contact button above.
As the world spirals towards radical progressivism, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report going.
