Answers To Poll Questions Show Why Trump Leads In Georgia: His Supporters Are Insane


Public Policy Polling has some interesting results out on voters in Georgia. While the poll begins with presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump maintaining a solid lead over Hillary Clinton, it also mentions conspiracy theories and how 31% of Trump fans in the state wish the South had won the Civil War while 32% aren’t sure. Only 37% were glad the North won. Let that sink in for a moment.

50% of Trump fans in Georgia think Hillary had some involvement in the death of Vince Foster, who served as a Deputy White House Counsel during the first few months of President Bill Clinton’s administration.

Only 13% think she didn’t murder Foster and 37% aren’t sure one way or another.

PPP reports its findings:

This is another example of the cult like aspect of Trump’s following. He says something and his voters get on board with it for the most part. We saw a similar dynamic with his claims about Arabs in New Jersey cheering on 9/11.

-Georgia removed the Confederate flag from its state flag in 2001, but Trump fans in the state want it back. 52% want it reincorporated back into the Georgia flag, compared to only 29% who would be opposed to doing such a thing. By contrast voters with an unfavorable view of Trump oppose, 14/76, putting the Confederate flag back into the state flag.

-Trump fans are pretty ambivalent on whether they even think it’s a good thing that the North won the Civil War. Only 37% say that they’re glad the North won, compared to 31% who wish the South had won, and 32% who aren’t sure one way or another.

-Finally we find that Trump fans support his practice of calling Elizabeth Warren ‘Pocahontas,’ 50-31. Among voters who have a negative opinion of Trump, 86% think it’s inappropriate to call Warren by that moniker to only 10% who find it acceptable.

50% of Trump supporters think it’s appropriate to call Sen. Warren ‘Pocahontas.’ I just wanted to rewrite that in case you missed it.

Considering all of the aforementioned, it’s not too surprising that Trump has a sizeable lead in Georgia, is it?

That was a very troll-y poll, PPP. Well done.
