Beto O’Rourke’s presidential campaign is turning into a gigantic flop.
And the hits just keep coming.
Now, a new poll is giving Beto some horrific news that will leave him panicking.
Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke captivated Democrats across the nation when he pretended to be a Hispanic immigrant, despite the fact that he’s Irish.
The Democratic senatorial nominee from 2018 who made headlines for losing to Ted Cruz in the general election has instead opted to run for president.
Beto’s campaign began like a flash in the pan, but it’s evaporating in record time.
With a field of around 20 major Democratic candidates, Beto’s substanceless platform has irritated liberals, while his campaign has to compete with heavyweights like Bernie Sanders and Kamala Harris for air time and media attention.
And to add to the growing problems, this new poll is devastating news for Beto.
The Daily Caller has the story, “Nearly two-thirds of registered Democrats reject special counsel Robert Mueller’s finding of no collusion between President Donald Trump’s campaign and Russian meddling in the 2016 election, a Washington Post-Schar School poll found.”
“The Special Counsel’s investigation did not find that the Trump campaign or anyone associated with it conspired or coordinated with Russia in its efforts to influence the 2016 U.S. presidential election,” Attorney General William Barr revealed in a March 24 letter to Congress.
Democrats refuse to accept that the Trump campaign did not collude with the Russians.
And they’re about to pay the price at the ballot box.
“But just 31 percent of Democrats accept Mueller’s collusion conclusion while 62 percent rejected it, according to the poll, released Saturday,” reports the Daily Caller. “Among Republicans, 79 percent said they accepted Mueller’s collusion conclusion, while 18 percent said they don’t accept it, the poll found.”
However, most importantly was how Independents split on the Mueller probe.
“Independents split 52-40 percent in favor of accepting Mueller’s lack of collusion evidence, the poll found,” adds the Daily Caller.
That’s a 12-point gap.
Independents are the group which Beto, or any other Democrat for that matter, must win over in order to defeat Trump in 2020.
They swung heavily to Beto in 2018 when he ran for US Senate, which is why he came close to defeating Ted Cruz.
But this poll shows that they largely support the findings of the Mueller probe, suggesting that Democrats who continue to push the debunked Russian collusion conspiracy theory may be in for some electoral pain.
If Democrats continue to hound America about how President Trump was not legitimately elected, they may be sowing the seeds for their own destruction in 2020.
This poll shows that Democrats are in danger of running off of a cliff next year if they won’t let the Mueller investigation go and accept the fact that the President defeated Hillary Clinton fair and square in 2016.
And Beto O’Rourke is squarely set to lose out the most from this poll’s results.
Do you think that Democrats are on the verge of handing Trump a second term in office?
