Celebrity Attorney Michael Avenatti recently posted a poll to his twitter following of more than 860,000 people asking who they would rather have as a President, John McCain or President Trump.
The tweet read, “POLL: Who would you rather have as President of The United States in their current day form? For me, it’s not even a close call.”
Interestingly enough, using Avenatti’s own words, the poll became just that; “a close call.”
Rather than allow the results to remain public and with the threat of Trump winning the poll, Avanatti deleted the tweet just as it closed in on a split margin.
19 Hours into the poll it was noted that McCain had a 14 point margin on President Trump, with roughly 22 hours remaining.
As the day progressed the poll tightened to a little less than 2 points.
Soon there after, the Poll just mysteriously disappeared. Once can easily surmise that Avanatti deleted the tweet anticipating a Trump win.
It is also worth noting, as identified by twitter influencer Stonewall Jackson that “Trump has the highest “own party” approval rating than any president ever recorded.”
Avenatti has been a very vocal and long time critic of President Trump since his emergence into the political spotlight, following his representation of Stormy Daniels in her suit against the President.
The two have since parted ways, soon following a judges ruling that Daniels must pay President Donald Trump more than $292,000 in attorneys’ fees and another $1,000 in sanctions in connected with her dismissed defamation suit against Trump.
“The court’s order, along with the court’s prior order dismissing Stormy Daniels’ defamation case against the President, together constitute a total victory for the President, and a total defeat for Stormy Daniels in this case,” Trump’s lawyer Charles Harder noted in late December.
Avenatti has signaled at times that he was considering a Presidential run in 2020, however that has yet to materialize.
