Poll: Donald Trump MURDERING Hillary Clinton In New York (Among Republicans)
Yep, she's worried. Look at the fear in her eyes.
Math is hard. Especially if you're already a moron with a skewed sense of reality. Which explains why both the Stupidest Man on the Internet and Donald Trump's campaign manager are simply ECSTATIC about a new poll that shows Trump beating the pantsuit off Hillary Clinton "in New York" by a huge margin.
Oh, did we mention it's a poll of older white Republicans? Yeah, guys, you might not want to pop your champagne corks just yet (that is a euphemism for "jizz in your pants," as is almost anything if you say it with raised eyebrows and the right inflection).
So here's the dealio: The "Liberty Opinion Research" poll went looking for self-identified GOP voters, and surveyed New Yorkers who identified themselves as mostly conservative or moderate, overwhelmingly middle-aged or older, 94 percent white, and who mostly lived upstate:
So among that particular chunk of New Yorkers, the poll had some incredibly great news for Donald Trump!
That's fantastic news for Trump, according to Stupidest Man on the Internet Jim Hoft, who couldn't wait to tell everyone:
Hoft also exults that "Donald Trump leads Hillary Clinton by 19 points when voters are asked who will likely be the next president."
The news was also very, very welcome to Donald Trump's girl-reporter-grabbing campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, who rushed to Twitter with the excellent news:
There's no doubt about it: New York Frickin' LOVES Donald Trump!!!!!
Oh, except for that thing where this was a poll of older, white, conservative, upstate Republican New York voters: There's just one itsy-teensy little problem for that "TRUMP BEATS HILLARY BY 19 POINTS IN NEW YORK!" thigh-tingle: the actual party registration in the state is 49 percent Democrat and 24 percent Republican. And the question wasn't about who people intended to vote for, it was about who people expected to win the presidency. So another, more accurate way you could frame that poll is that even among the most conservative voters in New York, over a quarter of them are resigned to a Hillary Clinton administration bringing them the peace and prosperity they hate so much.
[wonkbar]a href="http://wonkette.com/597425/two-whole-tens-of-minorities-line-up-behind-donald-trump"[/wonkbar] As far as a poll of New Yorkers, it's about as accurate as surveying the population of the 26th and 66th floors of the Trump Tower and declaring that Manhattan will go 94% for Trump (and somebody who gave the wrong answer is going to be in very big trouble). Otherwise, this poll is about as accurate as the WND poll that found 40% of blacks love Trump -- in a poll with ten black respondents.
There are other demographic differences between the survey population and the state population that might matter, too: As of the 2010 Census, New York state was only 65% white. New York City is only 44% white, which may make a difference in a general election, unless Donald Trump does a fantastic job of outreach to all those tattooed minorities.
What we are getting at here is that while this sort of stupid doesn't surprise us from Jim Hoft, it definitely suggests that Donald Trump should fire Corey Lewandowski for not knowing his ass from a hole in the ground.
