This USA Today poll proves that the average voter has figured it out. The article itself proves that the MSM hasn’t figured it out.

One of the first results reported shows that “In the poll, sentiments divided along predictable partisan lines. Republicans by an overwhelming 89%-9% oppose a Senate vote that would remove Trump from office; Democrats by 81%-15% support it. Independents by 52%-41% oppose it.” It isn’t exactly predictable that independents oppose impeachment by 11 points.

Later, the poll reports “Men oppose convicting Trump by close to 2-1, 62%-33%. Women by double digits support a conviction, 57%-40%.” It isn’t surprising that there’s a gender gap. What’s surprising is that men oppose President Trump’s conviction by 29 points. That’s a huge gap that favors Republicans bigtime. Despite that, here’s what USA Today says about the gender gaps:

That could signal political turbulence ahead for the GOP, which struggled to hold the support of female voters in last year’s midterm elections.

It isn’t disputable that women abandoned Republicans by a wide margin. This graphic tells the tale, though:

In 2018, Democrats had a 19-point advantage with women while Republicans held a 4-point lead with men. With all due respect to the journalists 4-point gap with men in 2018 vs. a 29-point gap in 2020 is a pretty significant difference. Based on 2018 exit polling and this USA Today polling, 2020 will be nothing like 2018. This paragraph from this article should frighten Democrats:

According to the survey, Trump would beat former Vice-President Joe Biden by three points, Sen. Bernie Sanders by five points, and Sen. Elizabeth Warren by six points.

Additionally, President Trump defeats Bloomberg by 9 points and Buttigieg by 10 points. It’s worth noting that this is a national poll. Prior to this poll, the only polling that showed President Trump ahead were battleground state polls.

That isn’t insignificant because we have a federal election, not a national election. Polling that shows President Trump leading in battleground states are most important. National polling that shows President Trump leading the top 5 Democrats should frighten the daylights out of Democrats. Perhaps this graphic tells the story better:

The people have figured it out that impeachment is just the latest Democrat-led temper tantrum. Democrats should accept the fact that they won’t defeat President Trump and they won’t impeach and convict him, either. That’s the political reality of this situation.

    News media often cite the polls regarding the womens’ vote favoring the Democrat candidates. It’s humorous that they ignore the discrepancy in the men’s voting pattern. It’s as though we should believe that a difference of 15% in the womens’ vote will somehow ensure the Democrat candidate’s election when the difference in the mens’ vote favors the GOP candidate by 25-30%. The news media continues to believe we ‘deplorables in fly-over country’ are stupid.
