It came out on April Fool’s Day but that’s just a coincidence.
Or is it?
The latest ABC/Washington Post tells us that it’s over.
Why even have an election?
Why not just give Hillary Clinton the keys to the Oval Office and get Bill his own version of Air Force One for joy rides?
It’s over! Hillary Clinton will be #45 and she promises to use only one fancy device the next time around.
It’s over until you look at the methodology of the poll:
“This ABC News/Washington Post poll was conducted by landline and cellular telephone March 26-29, 2015, in English and Spanish, among a random national sample of 1,003 adults. Including design effects, results have a margin of sampling error of 3.5 points for the full sample, 4 points for registered voters and 6 points for registered leaned Democrats and registered leaned Republicans alike.
Partisan divisions are 30-22-38 percent, Democrats-Republicans-independents.”
Are you kidding me?
First, a recent Gallup has a different partisan breakdown for March 2015: 27% GOP, 44% Independents & 28% Democrats! Wonder what the election results would look like with these numbers? By the way, these numbers were about the same in November: 28-41-28.
Second, the 2014 election results, or real voters not people answering phones calls, were devastating for the Democrats across the country. They are in their weakest state since Babe Ruth led the 1927 Yankees to the top of the baseball mountain:
“The last time the GOP clearly had more power than today was in the early 1920s, when it controlled more than 70 percent of governorships, 69 percent of the House and more than 60 percent of Senate seats.
I don’t know but there is something weird about this poll.
My guess is that the Hillary Clinton team is not taking it too seriously either. Like me, a lot of Democrats are thinking that this was an April Fool’s day joke!
