Rachel Maddow made a telling (and hilarious) revelation on Monday evening. According to polls, voters actually like lice better than they like Donald Trump… by a whole 26 points.
And that wasn’t even the worst part.
Not to nitpick, but this new national polling also finds that Mr. Trump is viewed less favorably than not just lice, but also traffic jams; used car salesmen; hipsters; the DMV; jury duty; the band Nickelback; and also root canals,” she said.
Maddow explained to her viewers that although this level of unpopularity may seem ludicrous, even for the presumptive nominee of the Republican party, this polling really is legit. She said she received the results of the survey, conducted by Public Policy Polling (PPP), late in the day on Monday. And yes, “this is real.”
I am not making this up to entertain you,” she said. “Even though I am sometimes tempted to do things like that, this is real.
Maddow did have some good news for Trump, though. Apparently he is polling better than cockroaches and hemorrhoids, but he had less than a 10 point lead over either.
However, with female voters, he still lost out, with women deciding they prefer both cockroaches and hemorrhoids to the bigoted billionaire.
Women voters actually prefer both cockroaches and hemorrhoids to Donald Trump,” she noted. “Weird. Turns out there’s a gender split on those particular issues.
When looking at Trump compared to the other presidential candidates who are still in the running, Trump is viewed less favorably than either Hillary Clinton or Sen. Bernie Sanders. Not that this is a big surprise considering parasites are polling higher than he is.
