The poll was conducted with 773 Democrats, and Creepy Porn Lawyer would have had to get only 7 votes to hit 1%.
Ouch. That’s definitely going to leave a mark.
Left-wing attorney Michael Avenatti is the choice of zero Democrats as their 2020 presidential nominee, according to a Morning Consult poll.
While “other” earned three percent in this poll of 733 registered Democrats, and some guy named Steve Bullock grabbed one percent, in a field of 20 names, the cable news star and lawyer for porn star Stormy Daniels came in dead least at number 20.
What’s more, nearly a quarter of Democrats, some 21 percent, said “Don’t Know/No Opinion” over Avenatti….
The poll’s big winners were two very old white guys. Coming in first place, with 26 percent, is 76-year-old Joe Biden. Coming in second place, with 19 percent, is 146-year-old Bernie Sanders.
In-between you will find Beto O’Rourke at eight percent; Elizabeth Warren at 5 percent; Kamala Harris at four percent, and a dozen or so names at one percent….
Watching the establishment media coverage of Avenatti, you would not think this could be true. Avenatti is practically CNN’s mascot, but he is seen and written about all over.
A quick search of Google News results in 25 top stories over the last 48 hours about all things Avenatti. Every tweet of his, every threat, utterance, and statement is news and has been for more than a year.
Avenatti has also made no secret of the fact he wants to run for president.
Nevertheless, despite all this free media hype and publicity, despite all this free media affection and promotion, exactly zero rank and file Democrats support Avenatti as their 2020 nominee….
Well, Avenatti can claim that his recent arrest will not affect his poll numbers.
If he doesn’t run for Pres., he can Challenge Keith Ellison for Minn AG.
