As I watch the Democrats duke it out, I keep thinking one thing to myself: How could any of these clowns stand a chance?
Now, if there’s one thing we learned in 2016, it’s not to trust the polls. And even if they WERE reliable – now’s not the time to get comfortable.
I did, however, want to share the results of this with you all, because hot DANG is it exciting.
A newly released CNN poll (Yes! CNN!) reveals that the majority of American think President Trump is well on his way to Keeping America Great.
According to the Conservative Tribune:
The poll, the results of which were posted Wednesday, was conducted for CNN by independent research company SSRS and queried more than 1,000 respondents between May 28-31 on a host of issues related to Trump.
One question asked respondents to provide their “best guess” as to whether Trump would win re-election or not.
A whopping 54 percent of those polled said they believed he would win, while 41 percent said they thought he would lose and 5 percent offered no opinion either way.
That’s a remarkable number, and if it were to hold true and translate into actual votes come Election Day, Trump could win his second term in an electoral landslide.
This means a few things. It means Republicans are excited given the TERRIBLE candidates the Dems have to offer, Dems are feeling kind of hopeless given the TERRIBLE candidates they have to offer, and we can’t lose steam.
Making that number even more remarkable is the fact that it’s almost a complete reversal from the results obtained by the same polling firm with the same question in December 2018.
At the time, just 43 percent of respondents said they believed Trump would win, and 51 percent said they believed he would lose.
Yup – my same hypothesis holds. They’re realizing it’s hopeless.
The best thing about this? How it all compares to Obama’s numbers during the same period in his own presidency:
As much consternation as the Trump re-election question likely gave the folks at CNN, they were probably irked even more by the fact that Trump performed better on this question than former President Barack Obama did in May 2011.
Eight years ago, only 50 percent of respondents believed Obama would win, while 44 percent believed he would lose and 6 percent offered no opinion. Obama won re-election in 2012.
But again- now is NOT the time to get comfortable… anything can (and will!) change.
One probable reason for this stunning result in a CNN poll about Trump’s re-election chances is that, despite the network’s biased coverage of the president, the state of the nation’s economy has managed to override the incessant negativity and yapping of talking heads.
Asked to rate the nation’s current economic state, 70 percent of respondents in the CNN poll said the economy was either “very” or “somewhat” good, while only 29 percent rated it as “somewhat” or “very” poor
That 29 % needs to turn CNN off and crawl out of their mothers’ basement.
