Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, June 16, 2019

A new poll from President Donald Trump's favorite TV network did not bode well for the commander-in-chief's goal of being elected for a second term. According to Fox News, the president is currently lagging behind as many as five of the Democratic candidates for the 2020 presidential election.

"Biden fared slightly better against Trump, beating the incumbent by ten percentage points, while Sanders had a slightly smaller gap of nine points over the president.

The remaining three Democrats who could possibly unseat Trump were Senators Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris, and Pete Buttigieg, mayor of South Bend, Indiana."

Fake Gnus!

"To put it another way, in open primaries where there is no incumbent since 1996, the candidate who went on to win their primary was in the top three of an aggregate of polls taken between November (post-election) and January (two years before the election) 7 out of 9 times."

Bush's Bushism "Fool me once ... won't get fooled again!" applies to Trump.

Some in America thought they'd take a shot at this (failed) 'businessman' and found out what a narcissistic POS he is. That he cares for no one but himself.

If Trump wins again, it will only be because of Russian hacking and meddling.

Which McConnell and Trump openly choose to do NOTHING to avert next year.

Tracking Trump: The President's Standing Across America

Well yeah, he promised these people everything they wanted and delivered on NONE of it.

No cheap health care that covers everything for everyone with no copays or deductibles.

No massive influx of new jobs.

No end to the gun violence in America.

No victory over ISIS.

No payoff of the debt.

No balanced budget.

No working so hard he won't have time to golf.

No draining the swamp.

All he's given them is deporting his voters, one year olds in cages, a tax cut that benefits the 1% exclusively, no health care bill, no return of coal, no jobs for manufacturers, no end to outsourcing.

Basically they got a turd popsicle from him.

This is exactly what the polls said in 2016 and continue to report. The real problem is what are the Republicans up to in States where they control the vote counting system? When Kathleen Harris publicly suppressed votes and privately miscounted votes nothing was done to stop those practices. This has enabled Republicans to continue to control Florida State Government even though they clearly are a minority party in that State. The techniques they developed in Florida are being used in critical States across the country because they can.

The only thing more tiresome and yawn-inducing than people who claim their POTUS is the best thing since pockets are the people on the other side who claim the POTUS who isn't part of their party has done nothing but bad. Unfortunately, that's what spreads partisan hate and hate in general, but that didn't stop you at all...did it?

If we lived in a democracy, the polls would matter.

But we dont.

We live in a plutocracy, where the non plutocrats needs to get 80% of the vote in order to hold 50% of the power.

Once you combine the votes for Bernie, Warren, and Harris, collectively they beat Biden.

It'll be interesting to see how the DNC and their media keep those voters - or at least their numbers - divided.

As long as they can do that, they can always point and say, "Biden is winning", but he's not. The left is.

Or maybe they just come right out and say, "Look, we're going with Joe".

This poll is what the Dems should have done in ‘16. From a well-known biased source make it seem this is going to be an uphill fight thus motivating the base.That said, I do think this race is going to be TIGHT.

I think Florida, Texas, Ohio & NC are for Trump along with all the other usual suspects. Big question for Dems is Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan & Virginia. Run those plus the standard slate and you can squeak out a victory. Polls this far out are for motivation with these kinds of spreads; nothing more.

Trump is WAY upside down all over the map.

Has nothing to do with Biden, as evidenced by the poll posted above.

So Trump has fired the pollsters whose internal polls match public polls; Trump is deep underwater.

He oughta hire the North Korean guys who always say the Dear Leader won with 100% of the vote.
