The Left Wing Agenda Of 'Fact-Checker' Snopes Exposed

The liberal "fact-checking" website has been bending over backwards to defend the "squad," including its check on the polling numbers of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar.

 Snopes claimed:

The tweet was too vague: Omar had an approval rating of nine percent and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was at 21 percent in one poll in one specific category: "1,003 likely general-election voters who are white and have two years or less of college education." The news networks went limp on this Democrat poll.

We know of no credible polls that show Ocasio-Cortez or Omar have such low approval ratingsnow in their respective districts or in their overall popularity in the country.

According to NewsBusters, though, the point was never made that Omar and Ocasio-Cortez polled poorly inside their districts and the problem is that less educated white voters are not happy with them, which could pose a problem for Democrats in upcoming elections.

So really, Snopes is not "fact-checking" at all. They're attempting to discredit a poll which makes them look bad.
