Live by the poll, die by the poll.

We all know how much Trump and his cult clung to the polls through the primary. It would seem old habits are hard to break, and apparently, the toad isn’t much for paying attention. He proved that by tweeting out a poll from OAN/Gravis.

Honestly, Do you want to tell him, or should I?

From the Washington Examiner:

The poll, conducted by One America News Network and Gravis Marketing, shows Trump falling to Clinton in a head-to-head matchup 51-49 percent. But nonetheless, Trump tweeted out a graphic of the poll, saying “THANK YOU!” and “#AmericaFirst” to his followers.

For that matter, the poll was a month old. The polls today show Hillary leading him with a minimum of 3 percentage points.

The same poll also shows Trump losing to Clinton when they polled “other” as well, with Clinton earning 48 percent to Trump’s 46 percent. Five percent of respondents backed “other.”

So even with a spoiler, Trump loses.

And just because I’m laughing now, don’t think it’s a happy laugh. This is more like one of those delirious, momentary lapses of sanity, as my mind adjusts to the sad absurdity of an “I told you so” moment kind of laughs.

You own this, Trumpkins.
