As Twitchy reported earlier this week, CNN unveiled its latest poll in which Beto O’Rourke destroys President Donald Trump by a margin of 10 points in a hypothetical matchup. Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders, both who have been leading in the polls, also defeat Trump, but only by 6 points each. Trump also loses to Kamala Harris and Pete Buttigieg in CNN’s poll, but he does manage to beat Elizabeth Warren by 1 point.
Obviously, O’Rourke is going to run with that poll — the Monmouth University poll released the week before had Joe Biden as the Democrats’ overall favorite at 27 percent; O’Rourke came in a just 4 percent, behind Bernie Sanders, Pete Buttigieg, Kamala Harris, and Elizabeth Warren.
You can’t blame the guy for pushing CNN’s poll; he’s proudly telling the little groups that come to see him speak that he’ll beat Trump by 10 points.
A new poll has us beating Trump by 10 points.
It’s only possible because you’ve helped us run a grassroots campaign that stays on the road everyday to go everywhere and listen to everyone — not writing anyone off or taking anyone for granted. Proud of what we’re doing together. pic.twitter.com/7rildxm5nc

You’re getting destroyed in the primary polls bro, stop spinning, you’re never going to be the nominee
— Jim Lahey (@Offcr_Jim_Lahey) May 4, 2019
You have ZERO chance to be the Democratic nominee

Should probably find another poll.

Grassroots. You lied for an entire week about your first 24 hours and then lied some more per your FEC filing. No one believes you have grassroots.

Beto doesn’t have a platform, ideology or calling.
But he’s in it to win it!
