Re: No Surprise -- 86 Per Cent of Americans Say News Media are Biased

I approved of Trump on a few issues, I understood many of the reasons people had to not vote for Clinton, and similarly I understand why many people do not want to vote for Biden. It was also the case that President Obama didn't leave things in tip top shape. The country was in weaker shape than whe...
