Polls

From June 9-12, Fox News commissioned pollsters Beacon Research (D) and Shaw & Company (R) to survey 1,001 representative Americans; the poll concluded that if the election were called today, Sanders would beat Trump by 9 points, 49%-40%, as would Biden; Warren would beat him 43%-41%; Harris would beat him 42%-41%; and Buttigieg would beat him 41%-40%.

Great! But I remember vividly how polls predicted Hillary winning in a landslide on election night. I still shudder when I hear the word “polls” I’m so traumatized.

For now, it does look good for our side but that’s only because Trump is failing to fulfill his campaign promises. If he closes the Mexican border and drops gas prices to under two bucks two weeks before the election, we’ll be in trouble.

  1. 1) I would be interested in how they all stack against Pence. There’s more people who like Pence than Trump. I don’t quite understand why they haven’t swapped him out already. It must be that Pence (or rather McConnell) is getting things done as Vice President that he cannot do as President. Amy Coney Barrett, here we come!!! 🙂

    2) That voter suppression (and turnout) you don’t think is a problem will definitely skew the results again.

    1. The turnout I actually believe is a huge problem. As Michael Moore says, the non-voters are the largest voting bloc ABD they are 100,000 strong. It’s a bloody disgrace. Not that I blame them because they way things are shaping up, I’ll probably be one of them. 😦

      As for why the Republicans don’t go with Pence, Pence is guaranteed to lose in a landslide. Pence is a wooden, uncharismatic version of Ted Cruz. And Ted Cruz barely managed to hold on in Texas.

        Burn.
        Wooden and uncharismatic is a step up from “actively repulsive” which Ted Cruz is. And he still beat Beto. Besides Pence has genuine fundie credentials, which Trump doesn’t. It’s not as if they couldn’t appoint a Senate rubber stamp VP to replace Pence.

        Charm, charisma, avoiding outright nepotism and grift, working well with other people, and an adult style, are only concerns for Democratic candidates. You can be a disgusting mall trawler (hi Roy Moore) or a petulant baby
        (Trump) and somebody will still vote for you if you’re a Republican.
        The fact that Pence calls his wife “Mother” is nothing.

        1. Maybe I’m projecting because I can’t believe anybody finding Pence an attractive candidate. He’s such a repulsive person and a political non-entity. Trump is at least entertaining. But would anybody turn out to a Pence rally?

  2. General election polls this far away from the election mean nothing. It’s just too far in advance to make a prediction.
