Morning Joe Misreads Poll, Paints Republicans As Pro-Putin Stooges

On Monday’s Morning Joe, excitement was in the air as the panel spent most of the broadcast speculating about and then reporting on the Mueller team’s indictments of Paul Manafort and Rick Gates. However, before the specifics of the charges became public, the liberal pundits took the opportunity to go over a recent poll by Axios and SurveyMonkey that evaluated what Americans believe about Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. In spite of some pushback, Joe Scarborough insisted on interpreting Republicans’ lack of concern about purported Russian ads on Facebook and Twitter as evidence that “75% of Republicans” “do not care that the Kremlin tried to rig America's presidential election.”
