Why Are You Willing To Be An Idiot?

noun informal

a stupid person.

synonyms: fool, ass, halfwit, dunce, dolt, ignoramus, cretin, moron, imbecile, simpleton

Rasmussen is one of the worst pollsters to exist in the United States. That’s not my opinion. That is objective fact given Rasmussen’s polling over the last several years. In 2012, Republicans hung their hat on Rasmussen polling only to watch Mitt Romney lose and Scott Rasmussen get booted from his company. Without Scott there, Rasmussen has descended beneath credibility.

But go on Drudge or more paranoid corners of the internet and you’ll find that Trump is winning black voters at a higher number than any Republican since Nixon. The only poll cited is Rasmussen. In fact, no other major pollster out there shows this at all.

But you believe it because you want it to be true.

If the election were held today, based on the polling averages, Hillary Clinton would win and she already has more than 270 Electoral College votes solidly in her camp. Don’t believe me. Fox News is reporting this.

But you do not believe it because you do not want it to be true.

You believe the election is going to be stolen despite the fact that it would take the coordination of over 2 million people keeping it a secret and strategically placing these people in key swing states. You believe Trump is ahead because his rallies are massive, but ignore that Bernie Sanders had massive rallies and lost. You believe anecdote is data and not seeing yard signs for Clinton means she must be losing.

In fact, you will argue that the polls are wrong because Donald Trump supporters are too ashamed to admit they are Trump supporters and therefore will lie to pollsters, but are so proud of Trump that they’ll turn up on TV cameras across America cheering him on at rallies.

I cannot stop you from willfully being an idiot. I cannot stop you from believing lies. I cannot stop you from making a fool of yourself. And I cannot stop you from being angry on November 9th when reality dawns and you realize you’ve been had.

But I do want to point out that you are a smart person and you are being lied to and you know it and do not care. That is the shame of it all.

I hope on November 9 that you will stop being an idiot and come back to reality.

Republicans could have beaten Hillary Clinton this year. Instead, an army of the idiotocracy decided to ensure the nomination of the one man who could not beat her so they can make money off your anger for years to come.

You are being lied to. What makes you an idiot is that deep down you really know it and don’t care. You threw your support to a Clinton donor and now only read websites that lie to you to convince you the lies are truth. That’s pathetic.
