13% of Voters Prefer Apocalyptic Meteor Over Hillary or Trump

13% of Voters Prefer Apocalyptic Meteor Over Hillary or Trump

That seems low…

New polling data released from Public Policy Polling indicated 13% or respondents would rather the Earth suffer a collision with a giant meteor before voting for Hillary or Trump. Apparently, “Giant Meteor” is more popular than any independent candidate actually running for president.

Giant Meteor was a particular favorite among independent voters, where it polled at 27% to Clinton’s 43% and Trump’s 38%.

The Hill has the breakdown:

The Giant Meteor has support across the ideological spectrum, with 23 percent support among somewhat or very liberal voters, 16 percent among moderate voters and 21 percent among somewhat or very conservative voters.
Men are more likely to support the Giant Meteor than women, while an equal percentage of Republicans and Democrats support it. A whopping 27 percent of independents support the Giant Meteor, compared to 31 percent supporting Trump and 35 percent Clinton.

Asked about real-life presidential candidates, Clinton, the presumptive Democratic nominee, leads Trump, her Republican counterpart, in the poll by 4 points, 45 to 41 percent, while 5 percent opt for Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson, 2 percent pick Green Party candidate Jill Stein and 7 percent remain undecided.

The survey of 853 registered voters was conducted via landlines and the internet June 27–28 with a margin of error of 3.4 percentage points.

Sweet Meteor of Death (or “SMOD” for short), is even more popular on Twitter.

I wasn’t thinking “planetary extinction event”. Just sitting here working, minding my business.

Then I got called a RAT by Sell-out Sarah Palin.

I liked her when she was at least pretending to be a conservative…

What happened to Cthulhu?

Seriously? This is news? smh

Seriously, though, I’m finally escaping the big two parties and going with one that’s a much better fit for me.

Annihilation We Can Believe In!

Slow news day? Stupid, Stupid, Stupid!
Now lets all say it together STUPID!

Too many voters think and behave like children. Then they whine when the political apparatus treats them like children.

Grow up, children. Or people will think you just need your diapers changed.

This feeling is nothing new to me. I felt that way in 2008 when presented with the choice between the community organizer from h311 and the back-stabbing “maverick”. The current choice between the epically corrupt socialista and the bombastic populist doesn’t feel much different, other than watching leftist heads explode when Trump speaks out is rather fun.

Is the meteor’s running mate Ron Wyden? Because that would be a great pick in terms of demographics.

When Cruz was within striking distance I remember saying to myself “hey this could be the first time in my life that my top choice in a Presidential primary ever became nominee” and was looking forward to not holding my nose as I vote for once. Alas, it looks like I still won’t be holding my nose, although for a different reason.

I’m leaning meteor.

Bush league comment by KK. Very moronic.

This article is just a little dishonest. Probably ~40% of the electorate don’t know what a meteor is. ~60% don’t know that there is an election coming up. ~45% don’t know who who Clinton or Trump are. ~90% know when Maury Povich “who da baby daddy” specials are are on and ~%95% watch TMZ.
