Donald Trump Elections Polls WTF?!

Trump Gets Humiliated After Citing A Poll For An Election That’s Over Two Years Away

Proving that his sense of timing is almost as pathetic as his business acumen and taste in clothes, failed, twice-impeached former President Donald Trump decided he’d reference a new poll from Nevada showing him beating President Joe Biden in an election that’s 32 months away.

Since he no longer has access to Twitter, Trump sent out notice of the poll via his official spokesperson, Liz Harrington.

What use is a poll that’s not even going to be proven right or wrong for over two years? A lot can change in that amount of time, especially in the political world.

The tweet brings to mind some of the absurd claims Trump made during the 2020 election. Even then he claimed the polls had him winning big. For example:

U.S. President Donald Trump told Reuters on Wednesday he does not believe opinion polls showing his likely Democratic opponent Joe Biden leads him in the 2020 race for the White House.

During an Oval Office interview, the Republican president said he did not expect the election to be a referendum on his handling of the coronavirus pandemic and voiced surprise the former vice president was doing well.

“I don’t believe the polls,” Trump said. “I believe the people of this country are smart. And I don’t think that they will put a man in who’s incompetent.” (Reuters, April 29, 2021)

Or consider this:

President Donald Trump on Wednesday attacked a growing chorus of polls that do not anticipate a favorable outcome for him on Election Day following the release of new numbers that suggest a critical swing state is all but out of his reach.

“There’s tremendous support. Poll numbers are very good,” Trump said during a press conference in Nevada. “You don’t see the real poll numbers.” (US News & World Report, October 28, 2020)

But hey, that 2024 Nevada poll looks solid!

It didn’t take long before social media ridicule and mockery began.
