President Trump trails potential Democratic challengers in 2020 test
Washington Post ^ | Septembert 11, 2019 | Dan Balz and Emily Guskin

President Trump overcame formidable odds and discouraging poll numbers to win the White House in 2016. More than a year out from the 2020 election, it appears he might have to repeat that performance to win a second term, according to a Washington Post-ABC News survey.

The new poll tested Trump against five potential general election challengers, and in four of those cases, the president trails, significantly or modestly. He does worst against former vice president Joe Biden, but also runs well behind Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), and slightly behind Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Sen. Kamala D. Harris (D-Calif.). Against South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Trump is numerically behind but the gap is within the range of sampling error.

And just last night an R that was polling 17pts down won the election. Screw the polls, none of them paid for by any fake media are trustworthy. Polls are no longer done in an effort to measure public opinion. They are used to shape public opinion, in other words, they’re purely propaganda.

Yesterday CNN had a story, “Will the cloud of corruption wash over the NC race?” The fake news media will just keep repeating their agitprop to their useful idiots.

Time to give up. Polling says Biden, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and Sen. Kamala D. Harris are as far ahead as Hillary was. Of course, Pete Buttigieg is where he wants to be - behind President Trump.

Good

Let them be over confident

We should always be campaigning like we are 10 points behind, even if the poll is from Fake News

Used to be a joke that due to expected high voter turnout that Dims are being asked to vote on Wednesday but now it looks like if they don’t get enough on Tuesday they’ll vote again on Wednesday. And on Thursday if necessary. Prepare yourselves for an old-fashioned, fascist stolen election.

I have started up a file consisting of dates, source and title of these outrageous/hilarious/BS headlines.

The old “Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds” epithet could easily be a label for these “journalists”.

Dunno how I’ll use ‘em later on, but it will be a “rub salt in the wounds” type of application.
