Somehow, every poll Donald Trump conducts in his head comes up with wildly different results than polls taken by actual pollsters using scientific data and methods. It isn’t just that Trump is ridiculously ignorant, the real problem is how insulated he intentionally is.
Unfortunately for Trump, actual pollsters don’t limit the people they ask to only those who attend Trump rallies. If they did, they’d find a lot of people who think mocking a woman who came forward at the risk to her own and her families’ lives is funny. They’ll also find a lot of people who care very much about sexual assault victims…if the accused is someone they don’t like politically.
Instead, what actual pollsters have found is that opposition to Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, is growing by the day.
According to an October 3 Reuters poll:
‘In the latest seven-day average in a survey of U.S. adults, 41 percent of respondents opposed Kavanaugh, 33 percent supported the conservative federal appeals court judge and 26 percent said they did not know.
‘Opposition to Kavanaugh grew 4 percentage points after the Sept. 27 Judiciary Committee hearing in which university professor Christine Blasey Ford detailed a sexual assault allegation against Kavanaugh and he denied it, portraying himself as the victim of a “political hit.”
‘Opposition grew every day after the hearing in the poll, conducted between Sept. 25 and Oct. 1.’
Trump’s tweets are just more gaslighting. Support for Kavanaugh is not growing; instead, polls show that women are outraged, sexual abusers (like Trump, who has 17 accusations against him) aren’t going to just be excused anymore, and Republicans are doing everything in their power to lose women’s votes forever.
Twitter reminded Trump of all of these facts. See some of their responses below:
