With Trump’s campaign circling the drain, the inevitable trooferism is happening. Sure, Jim Hoft’s reworking of HA Goodman is funny, but I think this will always be my favorite UNSKEW THE POOLS moment of the election:
It was easy to make fun of all this wishful thinking, but it was understandable given the timing. That Donald Trump’s supporters are already manifesting the same fingers-in-the-ears la-la-la-la-I-can’t-hear-you self-deception three months before Election Day is harder to accept.
But it’s happening. Trump himself has a habit of criticizing individual polls he doesn’t like. Some of his fans are getting more systematic about it. Radio-talk-show host Bill Mitchell offered this Zen-like observation on Twitter: “Imagine polls don’t exist. Show me evidence Hillary is winning?”
We have a winner, although I hope this doesn’t cause the Wall Street Journal to abandon plans to send Peggy Noonan on a lawn sign tour of suburban Dallas with a bottle of Grey Goose.
