Trump banks on a replay of 2016 as his poll numbers sink

Published

on

His poll numbers sinking four months from the US presidential election, Donald Trump invoked his 2016 victory Monday, saying he is confident history will repeat itself on November 3.

“Sorry to inform the Do Nothing Democrats, but I am getting VERY GOOD internal Polling Numbers,” he tweeted, without saying what they were.

“Just like 2016, the @nytimes Polls are Fake! The @FoxNews Polls are a JOKE!” he added, pointing to national polls that four years ago had Democrat Hillary Clinton winning the presidency.

Over the past several weeks, however, all national polls have pointed in the same direction: Trump well behind his Democratic rival Joe Biden.

The latest poll by The New York Times and Siena College has Biden with a 14-point lead over the current occupant of the White House.

Observers advise caution, stressing that there are still four months of campaigning left, but they also note that Biden’s lead is significantly wider than Clinton’s was at this point in 2016.

Polls in key battleground states also are a source of worry for the Trump team.

According to the Siena College survey, Trump is behind Biden in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, three states that enabled him to clinch victory in 2016.

“People want LAW, ORDER & SAFETY!” Trump proclaimed in Monday’s tweet. It’s a slogan he has embraced in recent weeks, amid an unyielding coronavirus epidemic and the most serious civil unrest over racial injustice in decades.

Trump argued that it was impossible for him to lose the election, thus concluding he would be "stupid" to hand over power peacefully should he lose.

"We not gonna lose this, except if they cheat," Trump falsely claimed about the 2020 campaign, where he trails Joe Biden in national and battleground polling.

"That's the only way we're gonna lose is if there's, uh, mischief," he argued. "And it will have to be on a big scale."

Disgraced Fox News host whines about Twitter fact-checking Trump’s conspiracy theory clips from the network

Published

on

One day after Fox News won a lawsuit by arguing that nobody should believe Tucker Carlson, the disgraced Fox News personality was complaining about getting caught lying about the 2020 election.

Judge Mary Kay Vyskocil found the Fox host is not "stating actual facts" on his show, "Tucker Carlson tonight."

If that was humiliating enough for Carlson, later that same night he was again shamed for lying when Twitter slapped a fact-check on a clip of his show that was tweeted by President Donald Trump.
