A Morning Consult poll is being framed around how viewership for the Winter Olympics in Beijing, China, may attract fewer viewers than the Tokyo Summer Games. But a major reason for the lack of interest is buried: 40 percent of Americans said the reason they aren’t tuning in is that the Communist Chinese Party is in charge of the event.

“Forty percent of those who don’t intend to watch pointed to China hosting the Games as a reason for tuning out, including 31 percent who cited it as a ‘major’ reason,” the polling group said of its survey. “Among Republicans who said they don’t expect to watch, 56 percent pointed to China as a reason, versus 28 percent among Democrats who don’t plan to watch.”

Political affiliation also showed up in the polling even without citing the communist Chinese hosts.

“Data collected during the Tokyo Games suggested that Democrats were significantly more likely to watch the Olympics than independents or Republicans. New data suggests the same partisan split will carry over to Beijing,” Morning Consult reported. “Fifty-seven percent of Democrats said they plan to watch at least some of the Beijing Games, compared with 40 percent of Republicans and 35 percent of independents.”

Most of the poll was focused on the overall popularity of the winter and summer Olympics — of lack thereof, including 45 percent of respondents who said they planned to watch “a lot” or “some” of the Beijing games, down from 51 percent who said in a July 2021 survey ahead of last summer’s Tokyo Games.

Morning Consult weighed in on the political aspect of the games in its poll report:

Given the controversy surrounding this year’s Games being held in China despite the country’s human rights record, it’s easy to see why Olympic sponsors have been relatively quiet in the lead-up to Friday’s opening ceremony. While NBC is still treating the Olympics as a tentpole event, its marketing has been understated and is downplaying the location of the Games. Expect enthusiasm among U.S. sponsors and media to be much greater for Paris 2024, Milano Cortina 2026 and, of course, Los Angeles 2028.

The Jan. 25-27, 2022 poll took place among a representative sample of 2,210 adults in the United States, with an unweighted margin of error of plus or minus 2 percentage points.

Prayer initiative 37 days till election 2020

Let’s focus our prayer initiative today on the new supreme court nominee Amy Comey Barrett. She was confirmed to another federal court in 2017, so this should be a very easy confirmation. But we also know that the left will stop at nothing, absolutely nothing, to make sure that a pro-life religious godly woman is not put on the court. The first charges brought against her questioned the validity or the legality of her adoption of two Haitian children. I’m gonna leave that alone because I have too much to say about that. Ask the Clinton foundation about Haiti.

Let’s pray for her today let’s lift her up to the throne of heaven let us pray Isaiah 54:17 over her, “no weapon formed against her shall prosper and every tongue that rises against her with a false accusation shall be condemned.”

Lord we pray for Amy and her safety, and her families safety. We pray for a swift confirmation and we pray Lord that the lies of the radical left will be stopped. Dear Lord we believe she is destined for this court and that she is your woman for this job.

Day 38 — Prayer for the Election

America was founded on Judeo-Christian values. Our Bible were used as a basis for our government that we have today. Before the revolutionary war pastors were prominent in preaching freedom. The colonist did not want war but they were were willing to fight to gain the independence that they so desired.

Let’s pray today to keep America an independent and free nation. Lord we pray for those that are elected to the highest office in the land stand on the constitution. That the rule of law would take affect in this nation, that no one would be above the law.

Dear God your word says that if we would ask forgiveness for the things we’ve done wrong, if we would turn from our wicked ways that you would not only forgive our sins but heal our nation. Lord today I pray that you would heal our nation. Put us back together as one nation under God. oh God bring peace to this nation and healing to this land in Jesus name amen.
