People In My District Plan To Vote Trump, Says Michigan Democrat Debbie Dingell

Being behind in national polls is nothing new for President Trump, but he beat the polls once, and many Democrats fear he will do it again.

Democrats are riding high again on poll numbers putting President Trump behind Democratic candidate Joe Biden. 

Of course, many snowflakes were left howling at the moon in 2016 when polls were proven to be uncompletely unreliable.

Because Trump won big.

Some Democrats are now warning against making the same mistake twice when it comes to buying into the numbers, especially in swing states.

From Politico:

President Donald Trump is down or within striking distance in nearly every battleground state, his approval ratings are stubbornly low and he’s threatening to bring down the GOP Senate majority with him while helping to douse Republican chances of a House takeover. Some Democrats are even beginning to feel confident about their prospects this fall.

Yet many can’t let themselves enjoy it.

“I’m not confident at all. I think the easiest way to ensure Trump’s reelection is to be overconfident. Too many Democrats are looking at national polls and finding them encouraging,” said Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.), a close ally of Joe Biden. “Too many Democrats assumed that Hillary Clinton was a shoo-in and didn’t vote or didn’t work.”

Rep. Debbie Dingell (D-Mich.), who calls herself “Debbie Downer” for repeatedly raising the alarm in Democratic circles, said she heard from people in her district that they plan to vote for Trump in 2020.

“Everyone will roll their eyes and say, ‘that’s Debbie.’ But I was right in 2016,” Dingell said in an interview.

She was among the few Democrats to warn that Clinton was on track to lose Michigan: “Anybody who believes the polls right now is overconfident.”

Representitive Dingell represents Michigan, who famously went red for Trump 4 years ago. 

Many on the left are warning against the complacency which good poll numbers tends to create on the ground during elections:
