According to an AP-GfK poll, the country overwhelmingly hates Trump (69%); butt they also strongly dislike Ted (59%) and Old Hilz (55%). I don’t know about you butt when I saw this report I was curious about who was conducting it; what happened to Gallup, Rasmussen, Opinion Research – the usual suspects? AP is familiar butt who the heck is GfK? So I checked:
The GfK SE, established in 1934 as Gesellschaft für Konsumforschung (Society for Consumer Research) is Germany's largest market research institute, and the fourth largest market research organisation in the world.
In December 2011, GfK acquired Knowledge Networks, based in Palo Alto, California the United States, which does online research for consumer products and services, pharmaceuticals, retail, media, and public policy. – Wikipedia
Gesellschaft für Konsumforschung!?! Seriously? Wow! We really are outsourcing American jobs. I wonder how many of their pollsters are foreign guest workers here on H-1B visas.
So if America hates all the front runners I guess we’re going to end up with a choice between an old Commie:
and an old shoe.
I think I’ll just spend today quietly reflecting on how, from a nation of 320 million people, we’ve come down to this.
“Where is the horse and the rider? Where is the horn that was blowing? They have passed like rain on the mountain, like wind in the meadow. The days have gone down in the West, behind the hills into shadow. How did it come to this?” Theoden - The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
For the record, if it comes down to the Commie or the old shoe, I’d take the old shoe.
Because one thing is always worse than another thing.
