No, of course not. She’s just that damn clueless as to how the average American thinks. Talking this way is worth an additional 5%, in the opposite anticipated direction.
You could trot out Charles Manson himself and if all the world leaders chimed in and said we shouldn’t elect Charles Manson, his polling numbers would shoot up to 40% overnight, well… just because. Anyone more palatable than Manson would likely poll even better.
On second thought, if Justin Trudeau is reading this, feel free to start denouncing Trump right now. Think up all the worst things you can say about him, nothing will be too over-the-top. Just do an emotional stream of consciousness rant on National TV, with maybe some special hour-long interviews with all the American T.V. networks about how much of a racist-warmonger-cowboy Trump is. Maybe even have some town hall meetings by the CBC and invite every whacked-out transgendered America hating leftist you have in Ottawa to chime in on how stupid Americans are for even considering Trump. That will like totally change our minds. Like totally dude!
