As you know, before the election, Joe Biden promised to be the “unity” candidate who would bring Americans together on a variety of issues. How has that worked out since the day Biden entered the White House? Check out how ABC News framed a new poll:
23% of Americans think the country has become more united since Pres. Biden took office, according to a new @ABC News/Ipsos poll. Among this group, an overwhelming 87% give Biden credit. https://t.co/3rHDO0Kfx1

LOL. Seriously? There’s some serious spin gymnastics in that headline.
So, 87% of the 23% that say the country is more united? Lol https://t.co/XIyi1l6HuH

Odd way to say that 20% of Americans think Biden made the country more united. https://t.co/UgdWelGkzb

If my math is right, this means that 20% of Americans think the country is more United and that President Biden gets credit for it.
Meaning that 80% of Americans DON’T think this.
The president has a long road ahead.

If this was about a Republican, you just know the framing would have been very different:
“77% of Americans do not think the country has become more United since Pres. Biden took office.” https://t.co/Zc34s2cc3V

In other words, even ~25% of Democrats do not think Biden has made the country more united. https://t.co/961BPQSrKw

The poll also sampled more Democrats than Republicans, but we’re used to that.
Some Pravda level spin here.

You are bragging about 23%?

87% of 23% is VERY low https://t.co/hj1L4mzK82

So 77% of Americans thing the country has become more divided because of Biden. https://t.co/u09z5cb1i5

Look at the twisty gobbledygook you had to take to make it sound like more than 20% of Americans think Pres Biden has united the country. “News”. https://t.co/OVXjE5DV0z

The headline spin sounds like it could have been written by the Biden administration, but obviously somebody didn’t want a more straightforward summary of what’s in the story:
