Donald Trump was an abysmal loser in the first Presidential elections, but he believed that he gave a stellar performance. The people around him who had the courage to express their disagreement with him are long gone. Those remaining White House officials might have disagreed, too, but they went around keeping silent. Why?
People do not call Trump a loser and stupid, or simply “No” unless they want to crawl up into the president’s tinder box and set themselves on fire. It must be a hellish existence.
However, the pollsters were busy, and they showed a far-different viewpoint from Trump. Thursday morning, POTUS started out with a post declaring victory:
‘I won the debate big, based on compilation of polls etc. Thank you!’
Senator Moscow Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said according to The Fix News:
‘If Trump wins the televised encounter and improves his chances of re-election, there is a greater probability that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and his colleagues would devote more time to boosting the economy and their chances of holding onto the upper chamber. In this case, the greenback could fall while stocks and gold would shine.’
‘Early reviews, instant response, instant polls. I’m sure the, you know, the main steam media will have corrupt polls, as they always do, but those are the two flash polls that we have already.’
Grinnell College reported their articles:
‘I’m going to mention some people in the news. For each, please tell me if your feelings are very favorable, mostly favorable, mostly unfavorable, or very unfavorable. If you don’t know enough about the person to answer, just say so. ‘
CNN had asked its respondents before the debate whom they expected to win. Biden had the advantage there, too, by 13 points, according to Washington Post. Tellingly, Trump was far less likely to have been declared the winner than respondents expected, across party groups.
The CBS poll was just released its most recent one:
‘A poll released by CBS News and conducted by YouGov had a narrower margin of victory for Biden, with 48 percent viewing him as the winner and 41 percent saying that Trump prevailed.’
The interviewer asked the interviewees before and after the debate:
‘how they viewed the candidates on three qualities: physical and mental stamina, honesty or trustworthiness, and the extent to which the candidates seemed to care about voters like them. The debate did little to change people’s views of Trump or Biden on these measures, with Trump maintaining an advantage on stamina and Biden being viewed as more honest and caring.’
The Fortune magazine reported:
‘Throughout the morning, the gap had widened further. As of 7 a.m. ET on Wednesday, Biden had taken a 20-point advantage (59.3% to 39%) in win probability for the White House, according to Election Betting Odds.’
The Politico reported a 19-point margin win in poll including race relations:
‘Voters also prefer Biden on race relations by a 19-point margin. Though a narrow majority of voters still view the Black Lives Matter movement favorably, bipartisan support has eroded over the past two months, as Trump has encouraged police violence against protesters, called the Black Lives Matter movement a “symbol of hate,” “discriminatory,” “Marxist” and “bad for Black people.” This week, Trump has tried to pin blame on Biden for violence in American cities.’
‘A new poll by Data for Progress provided exclusively to Vox shows that viewers thought Democratic nominee Joe Biden decisively won Tuesday’s first presidential debate against President Donald Trump, by a 52-39 margin.’
