In an op-ed published Thursday by The Daily Mail, former CNN host Piers Morgan made the case for why you can "forget the polls" because "rampaging Trump's going to win easily in 2020 unless Democrat ostriches drag their heads out of the sand and wake up to reality."
Noting that most of the polls "don't look good for Donald Trump" in key states, and the news was bad enough that the Trump campaign recently felt compelled to fire some pollsters, Morgan says none of that matters. The reason was apparent in Orlando Tuesday.
"[W]hen Trump launched his 2020 campaign on Tuesday night in Orlando, Florida, I didn't sense I was watching a guy who's going to lose," writes Morgan. "In fact, I got the complete opposite feeling. Trump exuded the confident all-conquering swagger of someone who defied all polls and logic last time, and fully intends to do so again."
The campaign launch was "a virtuoso Trump rally performance," he explains, "carried out with all the passion, energy, chutzpah and showmanship of another septuagenarian, Mick Jagger, strutting around a big stadium." Trump "belted out all his greatest crowd-pleasing hits from The Wall and 'Fake News' media to the rigged system, special counsel Mueller's 'witch-hunt' and 'bogus' Russia collusion," and worked in some new material as well. And the crowd loved it.
If even a notoriously left-leaning celebrity like Morgan can see the obvious, why can't Democrat party voters?
