CPAC Summary: He’s Back

The CPAC straw poll:

“The poll, a hypothetical survey asking respondents who they would vote for in the Republican primary if it were held today, saw Trump win 70% of the votes. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) came in second with 21% of the votes. A smattering of other contenders all garnered about 1% each, including Sens. Rand Paul (R-KY) and Ted Cruz (R-TX), former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem.”

The cold comfort we should delight in is that A) no one who wins the CPAC poll has ever won the general election, and 2) The Devil You Know effect. In the 2016 Goat Rodeo, Lord Damp Nut had no actual record to stand on, nothing to defend. People could put their own stories onto him. He now has a record to defend:

  • 600,000 American dead (so many in fact that families of the first waves are still waiting for some of the original victims in morgues and mass graves to be returned);
  • the economic collapse
  • the insurrection

My record on betting is really poor, but the demographic that fled from him to President Handsome Joe Biden —the allegedly well-educated suburbs— and they are not coming back for a second helping of bad news. Biden’s approval rating in the ‘burbs is over 50%.

As for Hair Füror hisself, he all-but-confirmed he plans to run in the 2024 Goat Rodeo when he was asked:

“I absolutely know my answer, and we’re going to do very well and people are going to be very happy.”

  1. “people” Are this the people who are always saying things, more and more, and call him “Sir” with tears in their eyes?

  2. I was at my family reunion on Saturday in the rich suburbs of Rochester & everyone there hated Biden. Everything bad in America was blamed on Biden (or one of the Clintons or some other Democrat), even if it was Trump’s fault … or Bush’s … or Reagan’s. There was no way to convince them otherwise. Of course, I was the only one chided for “talking politics” (by my GOP sister, who was hosting the reunion). Funny how the rethuglicans can talk politics but nobody else is allowed to have a voice.

      SilverAppleQueen –

      Every time you tell us about your family, it sounds tedious to do family events and I admire that you still try. Oddly, it makes me glad that my brother decided to disown the rest of us, so I never am faced with that choice.

      Rgds,

    A lot of people are saying he will get 100% of the Trump vote and they will be 100% very bigly happy with themselves. The NY Times may want to confirm that with more interviews of (selected) Rust Belt diner patrons.

    Translation, allegedly:
    I absolutely know my answer
    I have no clue, as usual. The future always depends on the last outrage I heard of as my minions read it to me.
    and we’re going to do very well
    But the grifts are going great! It’s terrific how much money the rubes give to me and let me steal with bait-and-switch websites! And I get to charge double the going rates for my security details!
    and people are going to be very happy.
    The grifts are going great, I get to do my ralleys again – why wouldn’t I be happy? Other people? What are “other people”?
