Trump’s poll #s are down, but even worse numbers for Hillary if election were held today.
Hillary supporters took heart that while she isn’t in the White House, she won the popular vote. Instead, Trump went to the White House, where he’s treated us to ineptness, failed campaign promises like repealing Obamacare and draining the swamp, deportations and an attempted muslim ban, nepotism and more crazy lies and tweets. And even a couple bombs!
Yet after all of his failings, sagging poll numbers and policies which certainly don’t align with my values, a new Washpo/ABC News poll shows that if a re-do election were held today, Trump would not only win again, but Hillary would LOSE her popular vote to him. It’s only one poll, but half that data is from Washpo, a major Clinton cheerleader.
Democrats, if you’re going to put all your eggs in one basket, please try a less creaky and more trustworthy basket. We have only two political parties and only two candidates ran as democrats. The DNC cheated one of them, and tried unsuccessfully to shove Hillary down our throats. She actually lost to Trump, a reality star who has never held elected office and insulted over 1/2 the country from women to muslims to immigrants. She was even criticized after the election by Obama for not bothering to campaign in states she lost in. Many others have noted in detail, after the fact, about how ineffective her campaign was. My question to her supporters is: If she is not capable of running a winning campaign against a jack@ss like Trump, what about her inspired you or made you think she was capable? Her constant flip-flopping? Her collusion with banks which crashed our economy? Her hawkishness? Her lies?
Meanwhile, Bernie Sanders is the most popular politician in the country. And while the news effectively kept Bernie off the air during the campaign, now that he can make the networks ratings dollars and has no chance of winning, he’s suddenly all over the news with hour-long specials. Hmmmm.
WASHPO: “While just 4 percent of Trump’s supporters say they would back someone else if there was a redo of the election, fully 15 percent of Clinton supporters say they would ditch her. Trump leads in a re-do of the 2016 election 43 percent to 40 percent after losing the popular vote 46-44.”
