Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, February 02, 2019

With the 2020 election cycle revving into full gear, pollsters are asking voters whether they plan to vote for President Trump. In a Washington Post/ABC News survey, respondents were asked if they would definitely vote for the president, consider voting for him or definitely not vote for him -- and 56 percent said they would definitely not vote for him. Morning Consult posed a slightly different form of this question, asking voters if they'd definitely or probably vote for Trump, or if they'd definitely or probably vote for someone else. Eight percent said they would probably vote for someone else, but 47 percent said they would definitely vote for someone else. In total, that's 55 percent of respondents who seemed unlikely to vote for Trump.

Meaningless stat. A majority of voters were against him in the last election, but a majority of voters were also against his closest opponent.

No, a majority voted for his closest opponent. Millions more.

60,000 votes in MI, WI, and PA put him in the Oval Office. Thanks to Russia and their friend, Jill Stein.

Other recent polls have shown he's lost a lot of support among suburban and women voters.

...No, a majority voted for his closest opponent. Millions more. ...

Be careful, semantics matter.

You wrote your comment in response to @2 which said, "...A majority of voters were against him in the last election, but a majority of voters were also against his closest opponent...."

Notice that you said, "a majority voted for" and the other said, "a majority of voters."

That's an important difference.

In 2016, neither candidate received the support of a majority of the voters" however, fmr Sec of State Clinton received a majority of those who voted.

And, fwiw, the obligatory mention of fmr Pres Obama --- he receive a majority of the voters' support (I think 52% of all voters) each time he faced presidential election.

I didn't feel a need to specify. After all, it was the comment just above mine I was replying to .. where he was talking specifically about voters, "a majority of voters."

Don't count out Trumpublicans.

He's got some really crazy diehard supporters.

"47% of voters are dead set against voting for Trump."

My, my, my, how Romney's worm has turned.

True. But Ann Coulter is the Pied Piper of crazies. Where she goes, they follow.

Trump will have to pretend (on video) to rescue some fake orphans from a fake burning building to get his fake approval numbers up high enough to override Coulter's big mouth.

Or he could tell Putin to "put a sock in it" and win some Democrats over. But that's not going to happen, is it? I mean . . . Trump Moscow Tower project and everything. (i.e. millions of $$$$$$$$)

" Thanks to Russia and their friend, Jill Stein."

And other voter suppression methods used by the Republicans. Can't leave that out because when you do they can pretend that those techniques are legitimate attempts to keep the voting rolls accurate which is a total lie. Interstate Crosscheck alone eliminated thousands of legitimate voters from the three states that gave Trump the advantage to win the EC, but then so did the votes for Jill Stein. I hear some say she's thinking of doing it again in 2020, she needs to hear from the rest of us that we don't respect a candidate who completely knows she can't win and can only be a spoiler but then chooses to run anyway. She obviously cares far more for her own ego than the nation. I don't respect her, I don't like her, I blame her for Trump.

Well no matter how you want to adjust your mind around Trumplethinskins ascent into office... you can hardly call it win-ning... and no matter how he leaves office... it will be in disgrace.
I don't care how he got there... it really doesn't matter... he is leaving only after another good pummeling.

Adjust your noses and tighten up yer floppy feet repub|ic|owns it is your death by a thousand cuts.

LOL @ polls. I don't know anyone, on both sides, that's ever been polled. Hence your HRC in a landslide polls.

Only time I've ever been polled was about interest on Gwen Graham running for governor way back in 2016.

This sentence makes no sense. Clinton did not a get a majority of the votes nationally. She won a majority of the popular vote in a minority of states, which was not enough to win electorally. Obama and Biden were able to do it, twice, carrying both a majority of states and a majority of the national popular vote both times.

In other news, 56% of voters have been removed from voter lists.
