So the first Democratic presidential debate was held on Wednesday evening and it was a complete and total joke in just about every way you could possibly imagine.
It was so bad that President Trump is likely kicking back with his feet on his desk, relaxing and taking it easy because if this trend continues then he’s basically going to waltz through the next election like it’s easy peasy.
Well, Drudge released the results of a poll taken to decide who the winner of the election was and it’s a real shocker. Turns out the victor is Tulsi Gabbard.
via Daily Wire:
Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii, the photogenic Army major who twice served overseas, had a very good night, judging from one poll that most often grabs the buzziest candidate and hoists them up.
Gabbard sits atop the unscientific Drudge Report poll, with nearly 46% of the 126,005 respondents deeming her the “winner” as of about 9 a.m. EDT. That tally gave her a 35-point margin over the next contender, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who came in at just 11%.
Former Rep. Robert “Beto” O’Rourke of Texas and Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey were the big losers of the night, coming in at 4% and 3.4% respectively.
While the Drudge poll isn’t scientific — anybody can vote as often as they want, and usually do — it has served as a barometer for years on where candidates stand in the campaign. Matt Drudge runs the poll after big events, such as debates.
At just 38 years old (she qualifies to run for president by just three years), Gabbard already has an impressive resume. When she was elected n 2012, she became the first Samoan American and the first Hindu member of the U.S. Congress. Gabbard also served in a field medical unit of the Hawaii Army National Guard in a combat zone in Iraq from 2004 to 2005 and was deployed to Kuwait from 2008 to 2009. In 2015, Gabbard was promoted from captain to major at a ceremony at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific.
It’s crazy that Gabbard is really the only one who was on the stage last night that seems like a clear contender. But then again, this might be the worst pool of Democrat candidates in the history of the party, so it’s not exactly hard to shine bright in a pile of turds.
Does Gabbard have a chance against Trump? Seems the safe bet is absolutely not. Now, that could change. She could come out strong on issues and rally the base around her in a way that gives her energy and momentum to put up a heck of a fight.
Still not likely to win, though. At least not this go around.
