Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, September 19, 2019

conic conservative blogger Matt Drudge on Wednesday announced who he thought was going to be the Democratic nominee in 2020. Drudge, founder of the news aggregation site The Drudge Report, took to Twitter and shared an image from Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren's rally she held in New York City this week, which reportedly had 20,000 attendees. "It's Elizabeth Warren's nomination to lose..." Drudge tweeted. Last year, Drudge correctly predicted that Democrats would win back the House of Representatives, but overestimated by claiming they would pick up 60 seats instead of the roughly 40 they flipped from Republicans. However, in February 2016, Drudge predicted early on that Donald Trump would become the GOP nominee. Warren has picked up momentum in most polls in recent months, but in the latest Fox News poll, she placed third with 16 percent, following former Vice President Joe Biden's 29 percent and her progressive colleague Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders' 18 percent.

Drudge has been shilling for Warren for quite awhile so no surprise that he's predicting the success of his efforts.

Probably there is no person whose opinion I value less. I won't even read the summary.

I'd be happy with a Warren nomination.

But, all Trump has to do is say Pocahontas a few times and the election is his.

Matt is probably correct. Democrats have a dismal history of clutching defeat from the jaws of victory. They should have easily had 2016 wrapped up. They should have kept the HoR in 2010 and the Senate in 2012.

No offense, Matt, but your prediction is a no brainer. Most of us not only read history books, but actually lived through it.

He's so evil--and unimportant--the Retort is named after him.

And some argue that the majority of Americans aren't idiots.

"Half of all Americans are of below average intelligence."

I'll bet half of Americans wouldn't see what you did there.
