A recent poll shared the inevitable truth. Donald Trump's poor behavior has done colossal damage to his political party.
Many people were surprised by the poll results, especially after all those turbulent political events during the last couple of months.
And the results showed that there was a huge jump in Democratic affiliation amongst Americans.
In fact, this is what made everything sound surprisingly odd in the first place because nobody expected such a twist at all.
The Results Of The Poll
Almost 49% of the adults who voted on the poll identified either with the Democratic Party. Among them were people who said they are independents with Democratic leanings during the first quarter of 2021. Moreover, only 40% reported affiliation to Republicans or leaned towards the party.
People were shocked by the results, and nearly all social media exploded with comments similar to these:
It's been nearly four months since Joe Biden won the election. And despite that, it's more than obvious how Donald Trump is still refusing to face reality and to admit that he was defeated.
However, voters are always right, and the votes never lie. They are here, and all of us had the chance to follow the turn of events on that matter.
Something About Donald Trump
First of all, Donald Trump took the news catastrophically. It's more than clear that he didn't cope well with his 2020 election loss.
Even though the results weren't in his favor, one thing is for sure - his reputation has done lasting damage to the Republican party.
According to NBC News, Biden received approximately eighty-one million votes, while Trump got seventy-eight million.
The thing was, nobody in the history of the U.S. elections has behaved that badly over his defeat. He was the first one to do it.
When Joe Biden Won
From the first moment when Biden was confirmed as the winner on November 7th, Trump went on a Twitter rampage. He started with the one thing he mastered: spreading lies.
He started complaining about how the election was stolen from him and how Biden was nothing but a fraud.
Then, Trump's online behavior started to escalate to some serious and dangerous levels. All the lies he was spreading to his followers ultimately caused the shocking scenes in Washington on January 6th.
After holding a "Save America" rally just a few miles away from the prestigious Capitol building, Trump encouraged his supporters to 'take the election back, and 'fight like hell'. Oh, how they did!
And that "innocent quote" really escalated quickly to something horrible - thousands of people were storming the Capitol and unleashing true havoc.
On that day, five people were dead, including one police officer among them. Hundreds of other people were seriously injured.
People from around the world that followed the case were horrified by the violent scenes.
Again, they started begging Trump to intervene, to calm the angry people, and to tell his followers to back down.
He refused to do it, of course. And along with it, he didn't want to take responsibility for the actions of the rioters.
Banned From Social Media
Later, these events resulted in Trump being removed from Twitter and all other social media platforms. The reason for this was: inciting violence.
And ever since, Trump has been painfully absent from all forms of social media.
We're very familiar with how much he wanted to share his opinions via social media. Also, we can't imagine how much of a shock this must have been for him!
Is a day without social media in it a lost day? Hmmm...
The seventy-four-year-old man was clearly in a huge sulk over his inability to be active on social media.
When the day of Biden's inauguration arrived, Trump wasn't there. This was a new first thing that nobody had done before in the USA. And it made him the first U.S president in decades to not attend the inauguration of his successor.
A Couple Of Months Later...
President Biden has been in power for about two months now. He's the forty-sixth president of the United States.
Even though he seems to have been doing a pretty good job, Trump doesn't appear to think so.
Moreover, whenever there was an opportunity for it, Trump had viciously torn into the president's face for how bad of a job he's been doing.
For instance, at the Conservative Political Action Conference on February 28th, Trump truly grilled President Biden and his administration.
He said to the cheering crowd:
"We all knew that the Biden administration was going to be bad but none of us even imagined how just how bad they would be and how far left they would go."
Yet again, he insisted that he had won the 2020 election fair and square. There was no way that he would admit his defeat at all.
Instead, he shared some of his plans. His devoted supporters found out that he plans to beat the Democrats for the third time in 2024.
This maybe sounded like music to the ears of Trump's remaining supporters. But to many others, the mere thought of the United States run by Donald Trump is a true nightmare.
