Eric Trump Mocked For Claiming Boat Parades Are Proof The Polls Are Wrong

Current political polls suggest Donald Trump’s support is foundering, but Eric Trump remains unconvinced of their accuracy.

How come? Two words: Boat parades.

Seriously.

The president’s second-born son took to Twitter Thursday to gaslight American voters make the case that the opinions of a small group of well-to-do nautical types is a more accurate representation of what voters think than, you know, scientific polls and stuff.

Again for emphasis: While many boat owners support Trump’s reelection, they make up a small subset of mostly white, well-to-do Americans, and their opinions therefore may not match those of the rest of the country.

It’s a point many Twitter users tried to make to the younger Trump.

Eric Trump also invoked his “the polls are wrong” meme on Tuesday when he shared two photographs: one depicting hundreds of people crowding a Trump campaign rally and the other of Joe Biden speaking to a socially distanced drive-in rally in Ohio Monday.

It didn’t go so well after Twitter users pointed out that the maskless folks at the Trump rally might come down with the coronavirus, compared to the more socially distanced voters supporting Biden.

How much you need to invest every month to retire with $1 million to $3 million, broken down by age

The coronavirus crisis may be pushing back a lot of retirement plans.

Nearly 30% of Americans say they have decreased or even stopped saving in 2020.

Unfortunately, those missed contributions can equal a lot of money decades into the future.

If you begin now, you can save $1 million, $2 million or $3 million — with the right amount of time and dedication. How much you'll need to save every month will depend on how old you are when you start and how much money you want for retirement.

Personal finance site NerdWallet crunched the numbers, broken down by age group, to show how much you'll have to stash away every month.

First, let's go over how we got there. The math assumes you have no money in savings, that your investments will earn 6% annually and that you retire at 67.

Check out this video to see how you can make it happen.

Keyless car owners urged to keep fobs in metal bags after 250 per cent rise in thefts in London

INSURERS want owners of keyless cars to keep the fobs in metal bags after a spike in thefts.

Claims have increased by 20 per cent in each of the last four years, with London seeing the biggest increase, rising over 250 per cent since 2016.

Keyless cars account for a greater proportion of claims, according to analysis by LV= General Insurance.

The company said that the best way to prevent theft was to keep your fob in a Faraday bag – a metal-lined bag that blocks digital signals.

Heather Smith, managing director at LV= General Insurance, said: “From keyless cars, to Apple’s recent CarKey partnership with BMW, which means drivers can unlock and start their vehicle with an iPhone, car technology continues to advance.

“But unfortunately so do the methods criminals use to steal them, so consumers need to keep on top of new innovations and take extra precautions to ensure they stay one step ahead of criminals who may try and take advantage of them, and their cars.

The police can only do so much, so it’s vital that drivers do everything they can to protect their vehicle, especially those driving a luxury or prestige car that is likely to attract attention.”
