A new poll of likely voters in the important state of New Hampshire shows a pretty startling result. “Unsure” is polling ahead of both Republican “presumptive nominee” Donald Trump and the Democrat we all know will be their nominee, Secretary Hillary Clinton.
They’re losing to *shrug*!
Personally, I can see the argument for voting for none of the above, obviously.
The poll, up at Real Clear Politics, has Hillary over The Donald 33.7 percent to 29.4 percent. What is not shown on the RCP polling averages chart is that in that match-up, “Unsure” comes in with a healthy lead of 36.8 percent.
Think about that. Between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, more people were undecided than were willing to vote for either one. That’s mind-boggling. It’s not like these are unknown candidates. They have by far the highest name recognition in the race. Everyone is more than aware of Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. Yet given the choice between the two, greatest number of people simply couldn’t decide.
That’s what happens in a “lesser of two evils” situation. The thing that people like Herman Cain and Rick Perry and Bobby Jindal don’t seem to understand is that most people just don’t want to vote for evil at all.
What will happen in November, should these two unpopular, polarizing figures be the nominees? I can’t say who will win, but I can tell you who will lose. Every. Stinking. One of us.
