Opinion| Mark Sidney| We all remember where we were when we learned that Donald Trump was going to become the President of These United States of America.
I was on my couch, my wife had already gone to bed and instructed me to tell her who won when the results were announced.
At 2 Am or so, I nudged her awake and told her “President Donald Trump.’ She giggled and went right back to sleep. The next morning she told me that she didn’t believe me when I told her in the middle of the night.
Why didn’t she believe me? Well, because the dinosaur media, you know who I am talking about, CNN, MSNBC, NYT, Wash Po, Newsweek, Fox News … you know the crowd, were flooding the airwaves and newspapers with inflated polls, negative press about Trump and portraying Hillary as devine.
Humans want to be on the winning team, and seeing 99% of the polls suggesting that one candidate is going to win, can often become a self fulfilling prophecy. Not only do voters want to ‘pick the winning horse,’ the inflated polls help to discourage those who would be voters for the candidate polling lower from coming out.
Despite the polls, despite Spygate, despite the Republicans, like then Speaker Ryan, trying to sabotage Trump at every turn, WE still won. The story of Trump’s election really is one of the greatest underdog stories of our time. Remember this call when the Establishment Republicans, who thought they were speaking off the record, trashed Trump?
Where is Paul Ryan now? Oh yeah, that’s right, he is on the board of … FOX. I’ll let you connect those dots for yourself.
Let’s not forget Rep McCarthy’s willingness to dump on Trump and parrot, now disproven, BS about Mr. Trump:
The Gateway Pundit is reporting:
“With less that a year to go until Election Day 2020 (well, one day less than a year), a new poll from the conservative cable channel Fox News shows Hillary Clinton running ahead of President Trump.
One problem: the 2016 loser on the Democratic ticket isn’t even in the race.
The Fox poll, conducted Oct. 27-30, found that Trump is running behind Clinton, 43% to 41% in a hypothetical race. The Republican incumbent also lags behind all the other top Democrats, trailing former Vice President Joe Biden 51-39, Sen. Elizabeth Warren 46-41 and Sen. Bernie Sanders 49-41, the poll found.
Clinton has been coy about declaring once and for all that she is not running in 2020. But Biden has faltered and fallen as Warren and Sanders have risen, opening the door to a late entrance. Were she to jump into the race — even at this late date — she would likely pull in $100 million within days and be competitive. Plus, having run in 2016, she could likely build a national campaign in short order.
Another new poll also had bad news for Trump.
A poll conducted by the New York Times and Sienna College, released Monday, shows Biden beating Trump in six battleground states that the president won in 2016. Biden has a five-point lead on Trump in Arizona, is up three points in Pennsylvania, and leads by two in Wisconsin and Florida. The pair are dead even in Michigan, which Trump surprisingly won in 2016, and leads in North Carolina by 2 points.
Trump versus the other two top-tier candidates show the president in better shape. While Sanders led Trump by 3 points in Michigan, he trailed by 1 to 4 points in Pennsylvania, Florida, Arizona, and North Carolina. The two were even in Wisconsin. Meanwhile, Warren trailed Trump by 2 to 4 points in Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Florida, and North Carolina and were even in Arizona.”
Let us not forget …
LMAO. Here is a quick rule of thumb: If you heard it on the TV media … it’s likely not true.
TGWP went on to report:
““Dick Morris, a former longtime adviser to Bill Clinton, also now says Clinton is likely running. “There’s a test you can do at home,” Morris said last month on “The Cats Roundtable” on New York AM 970 radio. “Just put your fingers on her wrist, and if you feel a pulse, you know she’s going to run.””
I think Donald Trump would give his right arm to run against Hillary Clinton again.
I know I would love to watch her lose … again!
