Things Black Voters Like More Than Trump: Bedbugs, Bubonic Plague, Mosquitoes, Carnies [VIDEO]

The Week reports:

Public Policy Polling (PPP) is a Democratic polling firm with a good track record (Nate Silver’s FiveThirtyEight gives it a B+ rating) and an idiosyncratic sense of humor, and Rachel Maddow had some new results she was excited to share on Monday night’s Rachel Maddow Show. “I can now report, this year’s Republican presidential nominee is less popular than middle seats on airplanes,” she said, and she meant it literally. According to PPP’s latest poll, American voters prefer getting stuck in the middle seat to Donald Trump, 45 percent to 43 percent, and Trump only beats bedbugs by 22 percentage points — though among black and Latino voters, not only bedbugs beat Trump, but also the bubonic plague, mosquitoes, Ryan Lochte, and carnies.
