Happy Hour News Briefs
Over at World Nut Daily, Joseph Farrah has crunched the numeros hisself and figured out that Comrade Preznint Stupid’s latest devastating poll numbers are actually really good! Take it away, Farrah:
First, there’s the Reuters poll, which was portrayed as a disaster for Trump. If you run the numbers, though, they also show if the election were held today, Trump would win bigger over Hillary Clinton, even taking the popular vote bragging rights away from his opponent.
That’s right. You heard it here first.
Just look at all the numbers.
Hillary Clinton won 66 million total votes.
Donald Trump won 62 million total votes.
The Reuters poll shows, based on what respondents say now, some 12 percent of Trump voters would no longer cast their votes for him, while 88 percent would. His defectors, however, virtually all said they would not have switched their votes to Hillary Clinton.
Meanwhile, 86 percent of Hillary voters said they would vote for her again if the election were a do-over, while 3 percent of that total said they would indeed have switched to Trump.
When you do the calculations, here’s what you get: Hillary with 56.7 million votes and Trump with 57 million – meaning today Trump would win the popular vote against Clinton…
Do you get the significance here? People who defect in elections from one candidate to another are like a gain of two votes.
Nobody else in the media bothered to make that calculation. Does that surprise you? Of course not.
Poli-Sci? How do it work?
You know what? If you take all the people that didn’t vote and ask them if they have any regrets about not voting (and remember: carry the two), you will still find that Comrade Preznint Stupid was sworn into office. And you will still find that the Russians did something to interfere with the elections.
I’m still not sure what Farrah thinks he has proven, but it’s fun to watch his brain look for a bright side.
