Interesting, whether it means anything or not:  Blogger Lawrence Person tracks the Twitter follower counts of political figures.  We keep hearing how unpopular and easily beatable Trump is.  But Trump has 61.3 million Twitter followers (plus 26.1 million on his official @POTUS account, but there’s probably a lot of overlap.)  Take a look at how many followers all the Democratic candidates have compared to Trump.

Also note how many new followers they’ve added since Persons last updated the numbers.  Surprisingly, while Elizabeth Warren was #1 with 110,000 new followers, Joe Biden added only 20,000. Even Andrew Yang added 55,000!  And more bad news for “Beto”: he didn’t add any more at all.

Most interesting number: all those Democrats combined added a total of just under 424,000 new followers.  Over the same period, Trump added 700,000.  And he already had far more followers than all of the Democrats put together.

Then again, be honest: who wouldn’t rather read Trump’s tweets than Joe Biden’s and Kirsten Gillibrand’s?

    If Trump does not win 2020, we all need to leave and go somewhere safe! Insane leaders elected would mean their voters are insane. America would not be safe. Surely American voters have sane common sense and Trump will be elected by a landslide.
