As part of an effort to refute a recent flurry of bad polling, the Trump campaign sent a cease and desist letter to CNN demanding they apologize and retract a poll showing former Vice President Joe Biden leading by a wide margin, which CNN refused to do.
The poll evoked a strong reaction from Trump, who announced on Twitter that he hired conservative pollster McLaughlin & Associates to “analyze todays CNN Poll (and others),” which he said is “FAKE based on the incredible enthusiasm we are receiving.”
In a letter sent to CNN president Jeff Zucker, the Trump campaign asserted that the poll is “designed to mislead American voters through a biased questionnaire and skewed sampling,” reported CNN’s Harry Enten and Veronica Stracqualursi.

I think Trump is seriously losing it like He’s never lost it before …it’s tremendous losing. Seems there are a lot of biggies piling it on Trump right now …and it’s about damn time!

The reverse is equally true. But CNN should tell Trump to fuck off. There’s nothing fundamentally wrong with their poll, any more than there is with the Fox poll a week or so ago that had Biden up by 8.
I think the shift is real. Trump’s done nothing but fuck up and piss people off for the last two weeks, and he keeps upping the ante. The public is calling his bluff. Most don’t like Biden, either, but they’re pissed off at Trump right now, for many good reasons.

U.S. presidents get unseated because of a catalyst—and, if it turns out Trump gets unseated in 2020, it won’t be because the opposition party convinced enough people Trump is a bad man; it is because the coronavirus pandemic, here in the United States, struck on the watch of Trump.
Trump, to get unseated and relate him to a previous 20th-century unseated incumbent, is a blend of 1932 Herbert Hoover and 1980 Jimmy Carter. With Hoover, it is having a crisis strike and that incumbent not knowing what the hell to do. With Carter, it would be the country wanted the incumbent gone. Trump has not had a job-approval percentage rating 50 percent or above, for any sustained period (hell, not even a brief one). Trump, to win re-election, can lose the popular vote by –3 (say, 48 to 51 percent). It is looking the best Trump can do is –5. Right now, I would guess –7.

Trump is in a corner on that one. What is he going to do, go to court and loose during an election year? The Ad does not have a leg to stand on.
So now Trump goes off on the deep end. He has totally pissed off at least 60% of U.S. population.
Today is Wednesday, lets see where he stands at the end of the week.
