PPP Poll: Phillie Phanatic More Qualified to Be President Than Trump

Phillie PhanaticThe Donald isn’t going to like this news.

According to the latest Public Policy Polling survey, more Pennsylvanians believe the Phillie Phanatic is more qualified to be President than Donald Trump.

PPP matched the two in a head-to-head contest on the question and the Phanatic got 46% while the Donald got 40%.

There was actually a large gender gap in these results.

By a 53% to 31% margin, women believe the Phanatic is more qualified while by a 49% to 39% margin men go with Trump.

Public Policy Polling surveyed 1,106 registered voters from June 3rd to 5th. 80% of participants, selected through a list based sample, responded via the phone, while 20% of respondents who did not have landlines conducted the survey over the internet through an opt-in internet panel. The margin of error is +/- 3.0%.

  1. Don’t cry, Barricks !! It will be alright. Your Orange Ape Lord never really had a chance of beating Hillary anyway.

  2. This is such a ridiculous use of polling. No different than the “Head Lice more popular than Trump” a few weeks back. I guess it’s just a slow news day in Pennsylvania.

  3. possible Clinton VP pick.

    Pros- popular outsider, celebrity, hard working guy from swing state, could work across the isle

    Cons- sometimes has altercations with umpires, may not play well with Mets fans, sometimes goes a little crazy with an ATV

  4. Yeh, Bill, their polling methodology may be suspect, but their conclusion is still valid.

  5. You forgot to mention that PPP has a liberal bias — note it didn’t ask the same question about Hillary — and that its robocall method of polling has been criticized as unscientific. Nate Silver criticized it as one of the leading “herder” pollsters; that is, their results tend to confirm polls by more accurate companies, but when they can’t, their predictions are bogus.
