Bad News for Biden: Swing States All Favor Trump in New Poll
Ask CNN and MSNBC talking meatheads and they will gleefully point out that, according to their polling, nationwide voters favor Dopey Joe Biden over President Trump by a margin of 51% to 45%.
Fortunately, our founders had the foresight to know that an electoral college was much fairer to the people when it comes to electing our president. In fact, one of the greatest Americans who ever lived, Benjamin Franklin purportedly said, “Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for dinner.”
So, they set up our Electoral College where red states like Idaho don’t have to be chewed up and spit out by coastal elitists in California and New York.
There are other benefits to the Electoral College, like preventing incessant runoffs when third-party dopes like Ralph Nader go on their ego trips to gum up the system with leftwing bullshit.
But here’s something CNN whiners and Democrat sore losers won’t point out about the popular vote in 2016: Hillary Clinton did not—repeat not—win a majority of the popular vote. She won 48.3% to President Trump’s 46.2%. Third party candidates, Libertarian Gary Johnson and Tree Hugger Jill Stein won 3.3% and 1.1% respectively.
Let’s arbitrarily add Libertarian Johnson’s share to President Trump and Tree-hugger Stein’s share to Hillary Clinton. That would bring Hillary up to 49.4% and President Trump 49.5%. (Other candidates siphoned off 1.2% of the vote.) So, what we had there is a dead heat. Without the electoral vote, the election would have gone to the House of Representatives. The Republicans won the House in 2016. So, President Trump would have won anyway.
There’s worse news for Democrats who don’t like the electoral vote system: If the election were held today, according to that same CNN poll, President Trump would beat Joe Biden in key battleground states by a 52 to 45 percent margin.
You can see why CNN framed the poll results the other way, showing Biden in the lead. They don’t want Americans to know that Trump has the lead on Biden. They’d rather hide the truth than tell the American people.
And the worst news is that Bernie Sanders fans are only partially turning to Joe Biden. They are torn and don’t want to hold their nose and voting for anyone who will not turn the country into a communist utopia. But just like they did in the 2016 election, 10% of them will most likely vote to reelect President Trump.
Democrats need those votes. But many could opt to just to sit this one out in those battleground purple states. So, Rachel Madcow and company, get ready for another ride down the Electoral College roller coaster when your hag in sheep’s clothing, Hillary Clinton, lost even as exit polls said otherwise.
Then there’s this: Voters approve of President Trump’s handling of the economy by 51 to 46 percent. He also leads by 12-points over Biden on the question which asks, “Which candidate is most trusted to handle the nation’s economy?”
When the Coronavirus pandemic runs its course, and the economy begins to skyrocket again, Democrats will once again rue the sage observation on what wins elections made by Bill Clinton back when Democrats were not such idiots: “It’s the economy, stupid.”
