    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.

    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.
