When we last checked in with Beto O’Rourke, he was rushing home from the campaign trail to tend to the disappearance of baby Gus, the family turtle. No, really.
So now the former Vanity Fair cover star is falling in the polls to Pete Buttigieg and he still seems to be grasping for actual policy proposals; he can parrot progressive talking points, like the Trump administration reminds him of the Third Reich, but as far as what he’ll do as president goes, all we know is he wants to unify the nation in love and also tear down the existing border wall with Mexico.
So, yeah, we’re a little skeptical of CNN’s new poll, which shows O’Rourke trouncing Donald Trump by 10 percentage points, squeaking even past Joe Biden.

Guess Trump might as well pack it in.
I can’t wait to see the CNN panel of faces come election night 2020.. it will be just as satisfying as 2016

Prediction: CNN will not publish a poll showing Trump leading until election night and all the voting has closed.

Trump will never lead in any of these polls until election night…..sounds familiar.

Hey Jake, remember November 7, 2016 when your CNN poll said Hillary Clinton had a 91% chance of winning the election? That was awesome.

55% of Americans won’t vote for Trump…unless he runs against a Democrat

Believe polls like you believe in Santa.

CNN's election polls are historically accurate and definitely won't mislead swaths of people into a false sense of comfort
— Booj Yoobs (@neltronius) May 2, 2019
So, candidates that have less than 10% of the Dems vote can beat Trump. #FakePoll

Beto is still a thing?

Beto is a Furry

Any poll that has @BetoORourke over 50% is not to be trusted.

There's no way this is true.

Something about this all seems familiar
— Arthur McMa (@arthurmecc) May 2, 2019
I guess this means the Dems are really a lock this time, unlike the absolute lock that Hillary had in 2016.

Why aren't they 50 points ahead? You might ask

'Is this for real??' Don't you dare question Beto O'Rourke's totally legit reason for leaving the campaign trail https://t.co/hdausI124y
