Overall, Americans are doing much better in the past 3 years than they have done in a long time. But, of course, that is a lie.
Trump inherited a rising economy. He's done very well for those at the top because of the rising stock market raising corporate profits that have not, in turn, been translated into good jobs. For the rest of the people, those who don't just spoonfeed themselves CNS News and similar sources, not so well. For those mentioned by Joe Walsh, very not so well.

For someone working two jobs to try to put food on the table for his family, the rise in the Dow Jones average doesn't do much good. And that's why Trump's approval is in the tank with those groups.

And here's some more tidbits about CNS News. They seem to do an even better job than you, Flock, of carrying Trump's water for him:

I see you got the batphone feed from pelosi's rant this morning.

This guy is the editor of conwebwatch (do you really think this is unbiased 'proof' of your argument?). Clearly a Soros subsidiary.

I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.

Trump used Philly girl’s story to attack ‘failing government schools.’ But she’s at one of the city’s most desired charters.

To be charitable, I think this is more an example of the general incompetence of Trump's people (it's tough to get good help when the only qualification is kissing the boss's butt) rather than a deliberate attempt to mislead as most of his lies are.

Wanna see media bias in action?
Google "More people are happy today".
See what you get.
Then add "gallup" to the end of it.

At least for now until google figures out they let something politically positive for trump slip out.

No, not a left wing media conspiracy but a feature of Google. It tailors its results to your recent search history. I'm guessing you spend a lot of your time on wacko right wing sites, so Google skews its results to give you more of what you want. When I ran the same search, my first page results (all of which indicated we are not in fact happier today) came from TIme, the Los Angeles Times, Psychology Today, Ted.com, and Inc Magazine. You know, the sites you dismiss as anti-Trump, fake news.

I did find the current Gallup "happiness" poll, which finds that most Americans are very or somewhat happy with their personal lives. However, it turns out that people all over the world are happy with their personal lives, and, further, that American happiness have been on a downward trend for the last three years. Gee, I wonder what happened three years ago.
The vast majority of Americans report being "very" (42%) or "fairly happy" (44%), but the combined 86% is down from 91% the last time Gallup asked about this, in December 2008. It is also the lowest overall percentage happy Gallup has recorded in periodic readings over 71 years and is only the fifth time happiness has dipped below the 90% mark in 23 readings since 1948.

With fewer than nine in 10 Americans feeling happy in the Dec. 2-15 Gallup poll, one in seven (14%) are "not too happy," the highest measured to date. Americans' subdued level of happiness at the end of 2019 fits in with Gallup research finding that Americans' levels of stress and worry reached new heights in 2018, while their self-reported anger matched the previous high. From a global perspective, the incidence of stress in the U.S. was among the highest in the world. And the U.N.'s annual World Happiness Report, which uses Gallup life satisfaction ratings, ranked the U.S. at No. 19 for happiness in the world last year -- down from No. 18 in 2018 and from No. 14 in 2017.

The point is, SSS, when you put that statement in you get results exactly opposite of the statement and no mention of that poll. Why? Because none of the MSM bothered to report on it, further pushing their narrative. It is only when you get more specific that any positive reference shows up at the top of your results.
You really have a problem with strawmen, don't you? You prefer your stereotype of me because it makes it much easier to support your own hypocrisy. Your "guess" is completely untrue.

I just did my own "scientific" test. I just typed in "the moon is made of green cheese" on Google, and guess what, all I got were sites debunking that statement and explaining where the "myth" originated. I guess the media has a conspiracy against cheeseheads as well.

If you enter something that's been shown to be untrue, you'll get sites that state the opposite or explain why the statement is wrong.

CNN has a special series on green cheese and the moon.
