Flashback: CNN Poll - 0% of Voters Say Russia Investigation Is Most Important 2020 Issue


In the 1993 movie “A Bronx Tale,” Chazz Palminteri’s gangster reiterates, “Nobody cares.”

Almost a quarter-century later, that quote is apropos in American politics, as nobody — except desperate Democrats — cares about former special counsel Robert Mueller‘s fruitless Russian investigation.

The proof is in CNN’s pudding from a poll in mid-March, as registered voters were asked to list what subject was most important to them heading into the 2020 presidential election. As the network’s graphic shows in a tweet courtesy of “New Day,” the number of participants who chose the Russian probe amounted to none —  or “nikto,” as Vladimir Putin would say.

As that revealing poll indicates, many who chimed in — some of whom would rather inhabit Siberia during winter than vote for Donald Trump — can’t be bothered hearing about the collusion delusion anymore.

That hasn’t stopped the mainstream media and leftist lawmakers from trotting out stale Russian rhetoric and coaxing Mueller out of his stony silence again. Tone-deaf New York Rep. Jerrold Nadler, who chairs the House Committee on the Judiciary, is licking his chops over Mueller’s hearing slated for Wednesday.

It’s no secret that conscientious Americans are concerned about pressing, pertinent topics such as immigration, sustaining our roaring economy and health care.

Alas, Nadler and Rep. Al Green of Texas are among those clinging to the last vestige of hope that maybe there’s evidence President Trump colluded with Russia to swing the 2016 election and “obstructed justice.” No doubt they must’ve read between the lines of the Mueller report and used a magnifying glass to boot.

Do you care about Robert Mueller's testimony Wednesday?

Time and again, Nadler and his obtuse cohorts have turned a deaf ear and blind eye to their constituents. CNN, that renowned Hillary Clinton sympathizer and apologist, has been complicit.

One Twitter user whose handle is that of a comic-book quipster had to spell it out for the network’s obtuse producers.

At least CNN revealed those poll results for viewers and would-be voters to see, even if stubborn Democrats refuse to notice. God forbid they let the truth get in the way of Wednesday’s dog-and-pony show.

Regrets? They’ve had too few.

Although it’s crystal-clear a handful of desultory Democrats keep pushing for Trump’s impeachment — which seems tantamount to pushing a rope — it’s more clear that nobody else cares.
