Because There Aren’t Enough “Dicks” Running Against Trump in 2020

Little Mo For MOTUS A.D. – October 24, 2019

FOX Business reports: Secret focus group could point to presidential run by Dick's Sporting Goods CEO

Needless to say, Ed’s anti-Second Amendment views gives Team WaPo tingles in their pants (H/T: Chris Matthews):

Dick’s Sporting Goods CEO says company destroyed $5 million worth of guns instead of returning them

Politico has it’s own take:

Hillary Clinton has opened up a 12-point advantage over Donald Trump following their final debate last week and has reached the critical 50-percent mark, according to a new poll released Sunday.

NO…Wait…That was then, this is now:

The prospect of a well-funded, third-party candidate could have a significant impact in a race where Trump is expected to be unable to win a majority of the vote. In 2016, Trump won just 46% against Hillary Clinton and has consistently hovered below 50% in national polls.

The all important “focus group” was employed:

Various messages were presented to a focus group in southern Wisconsin this week centering on the billionaire businessman, along with possible three-way match-ups against Donald Trump and Joe Biden or Elizabeth Warren.

The focus group, according to a source who took part in the testing, ran through varying themes involving Stack and heavily focused on his example of “showing leadership” by halting the sale of assault-style rifles at all of Dick’s Sporting Goods stores in the wake of the high school massacre in Parkland, Florida.

The winning “theme” suggests Trump’s base is eager to vote for an old, white guy who hates the 2nd Amendment and “black” rifles.

Because why does anybody need a semi-automatic “assault weapon”?
