The RNC/tRump Mainstream Media Accountability Survey is a fine example of pollpaganda: A survey full of propaganda, the results of which can then be used to reinforce the party line.
Here is a sample of the 25 questions. A few read like someone’s best attempt to interpret the noises falling out of Herr Trumpengruber’s face.
Do you believe that the mainstream media has reported unfairly on our movement?
Do you believe that the media unfairly reported on President Trump’s executive order temporarily restricting people entering our country from nations compromised by radical Islamic terrorism?
Do you believe that if Republicans were obstructing Obama like Democrats are doing to President Trump, the mainstream media would attack Republicans?
Do you believe that contrary to what the media says, raising taxes does not create jobs?
Do you believe that the media purposely tries to divide Republicans against each other in order to help elect Democrats?
Do you agree with President Trump’s media strategy to cut through the media’s noise and deliver our message straight to the people?
Do you believe that our Party should spend more time and resources holding the mainstream media accountable?
The Washington Post ran a piece with suggested answers, but it’s suitable for children.
Spoiler alert I: Holding the mainstream media accountable will involve eliminating Obamacare, Medicare and Social Security and leaving Paul Ryan alone with the corpses of the victims of his policies Because Reasons.
Not a spoiler alert because this is the RNC: People who complete the survey (or just fill in their name, email address and ZIP code) are then asked to GIVE.
Not a spoiler alert II: Mean liberals ruining things will require more donations.
Follow up from yesterday's Media Accountability Survey: Trump didn't receive favorable results, so now he's calling his own poll rigged. pic.twitter.com/PSdAouexr3

I hope Republican voters wanted four years of an impatient little hand thrust under their noses because that’s what they’re going to get. If Twitler views campaign donations as his money – and I can think of no reason to assume he does not – I expect some amusing tantrums when he feels the suckers are holding out on him.
