WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—With fewer than a hundred days until the election, Donald J. Trump is trailing Joe Biden badly among voters who describe themselves as in favor of being alive.

The poll, which was conducted by the University of Minnesota, shows Biden beating Trump by a whopping thirty-one per cent among voters who call continuing to exist the issue that is most important to them.

In several swing states, including Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin, Biden has wiped out Trump's lead by racking up huge margins among the rather-not-die-right-now demographic.

"Trump needs to do something dramatic to show voters that he, too, is in favor of them staying alive," Davis Logsdon, who supervised the poll, said. "I'm not sure that shooting rubber bullets and tear gas at them sends that message."

Trump's new campaign manager, Bill Stepien, accused the media of focussing too much attention on the opinions of voters who wish to continue to breathe because of the press's own "anti-dying bias."

"This campaign is working overtime to identify voters who are not in favor of being alive and make sure they know that President Trump is on their side," he said.

That living thing is so passe with this administration. 

Gotta love Andy.

I wish to die
in spring, beneath
the cherry blossoms,
while the springtime moon
is full.

Saigyo (1190).

However - I would prefer  that spring be the spring of 2039 or so -  and not 2021.

Adam... only another 19 years? I'm kind of hoping for another quality 30.

I had one actually try to give me the lineage.  Naturally the accuracy is as questionable as the person.
