Hey guys, remember the post yesterday in which we postulated that Trump doesn’t have to outrun the bear, he just needs to be faster than the other guy? (Actually, he only needs to be more popular than the things he attacks is what we said…) We have some more back-up! and it comes from Senatorette Miss Lindsey Graham:
“The Congress is very unpopular, particularly with the Republican base, so there’s nothing unhinged about it. It’s a political strategy that I’m not so sure is smart, but it’s a very thought-out strategy. There’s nothing crazy about it. It’s a political strategy,” Graham told conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt.
“…The President is not crazy to attack the Congress. He’s not crazy to think of ways to put Democrats in a bad spot regarding the debt ceiling. They do this all the time to us,” he said.
Now that we understand that Preznint Stupid is playing only to his base, his (racist) behavior makes some sense. So let’s take the next step, shall we?
A new PPP poll shows us why Hair Führer doesn’t condemn white supremacists: that’s his base!
When asked which racial group is most discriminated against, 45% of Trump voters said it was whites, 17% said Native Americans, 16% said blacks, and 5% said Latinos.
When asked which religious group faces the most discrimination in America, 54% of Trump voters say it is Christians, 22% say Muslims, and 12% say Jews.
Of course, that is complete BS, but Jeebusland and the New Confederacy is nothing if not constantly nailing themselves to the cross, what with being so entirely powerless and the most put-upon people in the History of the World! Woe to be a straight white Xristian male in the United States.
The poll also revealed that among ALL voters, 39% support having statues of Confederate traitors in public places and 34% oppose them (which frankly shocked the bejeezus out of me). But when PPP looked at ONLY Trump voters, they supported statues of Confederate traitors by a shit ton 71% to 10%.
So now we know why he said many sides, many sides were to blame for the terrorist attack in Charlottesville: he knew it wasn’t going to hurt him, and that his base believes it too. Hair Führer understand how his base thinks (Clue: like he does).
Also, remember this?
Trump voters say they would rather have Jefferson Davis as President than Barack Obama 45/20. Obama wins that question 56/21 with the overall electorate.
So, who is Comrade Stupid running faster than in this scenario? You and me, baby. The coastal, liberal elites. And I think we now know who the bear is, too: it’s his base.
