Early Saturday morning, a CNN instant poll that was briefly displayed onscreen: “56 percent more likely to vote for Trump post speech. 75 percent positive reaction.” CNN, seemingly shocked by the accurate results, had to then downplay the outcome by essentially trying to discredit their own poll. The mainstream media network cannot let positivity prevail when they televise support for Trump, so in response they released an article:
