They say it because Trump is the presumptive nominee but there is much more to the facts than there is to the myth That trump is ‘the people’s choice.
Oh, sure, we all hear the crowing that Trump received more primary votes than any other candidate in history but that’s a lot like saying that the unemployment rate is 4.5% and believing it. Trump got more votes…because there are more people of voting age but the reality of it is that Trump got 42% of the primary votes…which include those liberals who crossed the aisle to vote for HIM…before strolling BACK to the left to vote for Hillary.
That also plays into the whole myth that Trump is “the people’s choice,” because if 42% of Republican voters voted FOR Trump…that means that 58% of Republican voters did NOT vote for Trump and as that is a double digit difference…not in Trump’s favor…he can’t possibly be “the people’s choice.”
Then there are Donald Trump’s favorability ratings…
