Amazingly, Democrats love selling their polls. Even though nobody’s buying them. Still, you have to appreciate the tenacity of the Party of Lynching Negroes.
Because selling Biden poses real difficulties. After all, the creepy former Vice President comes with a lot of baggage.
Serial liar, sexual predator, and now co-conspirator to take down Donald Trump. Not good resume-building material for creepy Joe. But Biden is all the Democrats have, at least for now. So they must convince Americans that a brain-damaged Democrat is better than a proven presidential stud. CNN has the poll to prove it.
According to the key fake news outfit, Joe Biden leads President Trump by five points nationally. If you believe that, then maybe I can convince you that crack hoes make excellent trophy wives.
Interestingly, CNN tries to make the sell of this poll easier by giving Republicans a “ray of hope”. The poll gives the president an edge in key battleground states; states that could decide the Electoral College.
According to the poll, in the battleground states 52 percent favor Trump compared to 45 percent who choose Biden. The battlegrounds were described as the 15 states decided by 8 points or less in 2016: Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin.
Great news for Trump, right? However, as they tease in the informercials, “But wait!”.
More bad news for Trump, and good news for Biden.
The survey shows that 51 percent of registered voters nationwide back Captain Demento, while only 46 percent like Trump.
Hard to believe that a hunkered-down Biden now polls nationally ahead of a sitting president? But let’s play along. Because the next bit of information might crack the case wide open.
According to the poll, both Democrats and Republicans are firmly dug in behind their candidates. Supposedly with 95 percent of Democrats backing Biden and the same percentage of Republicans behind Trump. Neck and neck in their party support.
Of course, as we recently reported, CNN buried its own poll that proved Trump maintains a solid lead. As such, it’s clear CNN can’t be trusted, if they ever were.
Pull my finger
While I have no doubt President Trump has 95 percent of the Republicans supporting him, I cry “foul” on Biden’s backing. And so does Rasmussen’s latest poll on party support:
Joe Biden has the support of just over half of Democrats, although the vast majority still expect the former vice president to be their party’s presidential nominee.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 54% of Likely Democratic Voters are satisfied with Biden as the Democrats’ 2020 nominee. Twenty-eight percent (28%) think the party should find someone else to be their nominee, while another 18% are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
Ninety-two percent (92%) of Democrats, however, think it’s likely Biden will be the Democratic presidential nominee in 2020, with 77% who say it’s Very Likely.
Who should we believe in this battle of the pollsters?
We have CNN who says Biden has solidified the Democrat base, equaling that of President Trump. And we have Rasmussen who has the Democrats split on Biden.
I’ll take door #2, Monty.
Let’s take a look at one more poll. The reality check poll that happened in the special election in California’s 25th district.
With 100 percent reporting, Republican Mike Garcia defeated Democrat Christy Smith. Garcia received 56.05% and Smith received 43.95%. A 12 point advantage by the Republican over the Democrat in a district that hasn’t been Republican since 1998.
To understand the numbers, consider that Clinton won the district by 7 points in 2016. And Katie Hill won by 9 points in 2018.
Those numbers represent a 19 point flip minimum and a 21 point flip at its best. The results of CA-25 don’t bode well for Democrats.
Note: The CNN/SSRS Poll was conducted May 7-10 among a random national sample of 1,112 adults, including 583 voters in battleground states, and had a margin of error of plus or minus 3.7 percentage points.
