14% of Americans favor a ban on all red hats because of Trump

This is insane.

The Left are so triggered by Trump-supporters wearing red MAGA (Make America Great Again) baseball caps that cap-wearers have been physically assaulted. See, for example:

Recently, a delicate snowflake named Rebecca Makkai, a 41-year-old novelist who’s a Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award finalist, tweeted that the red MAGA hat is a “hate symbol” and the equivalent of the Nazi swastika. Makkai doesn’t want people to wear “any kind of red baseball cap” — not just red MAGA hats — because her “heart does weird shit” when she sees a red cap and any red hats are “making everyone scared.”

In a series of tweets on August 31 and Sept. 1, 2019, Makkai (@rebeccamakkai) wrote:

Is anyone else made really uncomfortable these days by anyone wearing any kind of red baseball cap? Like, I see one and my heart does weird shit and then I finally realize it only says Titleist or whatever. Maybe don’t wear red caps anymore, normal people?

Also, for the love of God: The clever folks wearing “Make America Read Again” or whatever caps — NO. You’re making everyone scared. Don’t do it.

If you’re here to be contrary: an equivalent here would be western Hindus choosing not to use the swastika symbol in public despite it being sacred to their faith because it would offend/frighten people. The red hat has become a symbol of hate bc of how its wearers act.

Makkai is not alone.

A new Rasmussen poll found that as many as 14% of U.S. adults favor the banning of red caps in America.

The national telephone and online survey of a representative sample of 1,000 American adults was conducted on September 11-12, 2019 by Rasmussen Reports.

The question was: “A suggestion has been made to ban all red caps in America because pro-Trump Make American Great hats are red and cause anxiety among anti-Trump Americans. Do you favor or oppose the banning of red caps in America?”

A survey found that:

  • 14% support a ban on red caps.
  • 70% are opposed.
  • 17% are undecided.

The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.

One day to election, what do the polls say?

Vote for love of country vs. Vote for revenge

Obama support among Catholics collapsing

Joel Pollak reports for Breitbart, Nov. 1, 2012, that a Pew poll says Obama’s lead among Catholic voters has declined from 54-39 in September 2012 to a mere two-point lead, 48-46. Among white Catholics, Romney has jumped to a 14-point lead (54-40) after being tied with Obama in September. To understand just how significant that is, consider that in 2008, Obama won Catholics by 9% (54 to 45) and lost white Catholics by just 5% (47 to 52). In 2004, the Catholic vote went narrowly to Bush overall (more widely among white Catholics), and in 2000 it went narrowly to Gore (and narrowly to Bush among white Catholics). The 14-point lead Romney currently enjoys among white Catholics is almost without precedent.

Hurricane Sandy has helped the POS

But a new poll by the Pew Research Center, one of the more reliable pollsters, showed the POS has edged ahead of Mitt Romney in the final days of the presidential campaign, helped by his perceived handling of superstorm Sandy. Obama now leads Romney 48% to 45% nationwide, among likely voters. Pew estimates that in the final tally, Obama will take 50% of the popular vote to 47% for Romney. The modest lead for Obama marks a shift from a week ago when the two were tied on 47% before Sandy. Among likely voters, 69% said they approved of Obama’s handling of the storm.

Other polls show a very tight race

Rasmussen: Romney 49% vs. Obama 48% among likely voters nationwide.

ABC/Washington Post: Obama 49% vs. Romney 48% among likely voters nationwide.

Gallup: Romney 48% vs. Obama 48% among likely voters in the “swing” battleground states.

CNN: 49-49 tie, but CNN’s sample is skewed in favor of Democrats (a D+11 sample). By comparison, the electorate in 2008, when Obama-mania was at its peak, was merely D+7, according to exit polls.

Romney surges ahead of POS in latest polls!

45th President of the United States of America (2013-2020)

The polls are looking worse and worse for Obama:

1. Gallup’s latest national poll of likely voters: 51% Romney v. 45% Obama.

2. Romney has closed a 26-point gap and is surging ahead of Obama in favorability ratings:

  • In March 2012, Pew Research Center had Obama’s favorable rating at 55% vs. Romney’s 29%. But now, it’s Romney 50% vs. Obama 49%.
  • Gallup also has Romney beating Obama on the favorability rating, 52% to 51%.
  • Even the liberal DailyKos/SEIU/PPP poll has Romney beating Obama on the fave rating, 49% to 46%.

3. Romney is now leading in three battleground states:

4. RealClearPolitics’s 2012 electoral map gives a plurality of Electoral College votes to Romney: 206 Romney v. 201 Obama (131 toss ups)

Former Democratic strategist Bob Beckel on Fox News’ “The Five” today:  “It’s over. If these numbers are true, it’s over.”

Keep praying, friends!

Pray for Romney! Pray for America!

Harry Reid Is Mentally Ill

“But for me, we’d be in a worldwide depression.”
Demonrat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (Nevada) said this on October 21, 2010 on MSNBC.
[youtube=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3SOoBOsZBU8&feature=player_embedded]
Such narcissistic delusions of grandeur are symptomatic of a severe mental illness. That 47% of Nevadans in the latest Rasmussen poll (Oct. 18) say they will vote for Reid is symptomatic of their own mental illness, or their willful ignorance, or just plain corruption.
