Polls are always enlightening, even if they only represent a sample size of the population, and there’s plenty to say about how enlightening the new Friday poll out of Public Policy Polling is.
For instance, 51% of Trump voters say that the Bowling Green Massacre shows why Trump’s Immigration plan is needed, to just a measly 23% of whom that either live in reality or haven’t taken the meme yet:
Among those who do support it you have to wonder how well thought out their position is- by a 51/23 margin Trump voters say that the Bowling Green Massacre shows why Trump’s immigration policy is needed.
I mean, I’d note that says it all about Trump supporters, but I don’t think you can sum up that amount of deranged, rightist stupidity in a single statistic, no matter how mind-blowing that statistic is.
As you might expect, this resulted in humorous liberal commentary, as conservative stupidity usually does:

The poll also noted that Americans were now even split on the issue of impeaching Trump — 46% in favor of and 46% opposed to. And that “in favor of” figure has gone up in the last two weeks:
Just three weeks into his administration, voters are already evenly divided on the issue of impeaching Trump with 46% in favor and 46% opposed. Support for impeaching Trump has crept up from 35% 2 weeks ago, to 40% last week, to its 46% standing this week.
Since this infringes on their bubble of anti-reality, Trumpanzees were not happy to learn this:

The poll was revealing in other aspects, too — for instance, more Americans trust Saturday Night Live than Donald Trump (48/43), and Donald Trump’s fight with the media is turning against him, with more trusting media like the New York Times than Donald Trump (52/37). Also from the poll: only 47% of Trump supporters know Frederick Douglass is dead.

And these are folks who scream that we don’t need a Black History Month (35% opposed). They sure did a good job paying attention in class, didn’t they?
