A Reuters/Ipsos Public Affairs survey correctly predicted which “Game of Thrones” character would die in the Game of Thrones Season 7 Finale. Yes, they predicted that Littlefinger aka Petry Baelish will die in the finale. That gave them the inspiration to predict who might exit Trump White House in the coming days.
In an August Reuters/Ipsos poll, 21 percent correctly predicted that Petyr Baelish would be the character most likely to get killed off in the season finale. We witnessed Arya Stark slitting his throat.
“When the season ended, it was right about the time that former White House strategist Stephen Bannon left the White House,” Ipsos Vice President Chris Jackson said on Wednesday. “Somebody in the office just had the idea that maybe we should adapt the ‘Game of Thrones’ thing to the White House, considering how much attrition Trump’s staff has had.”
Game of Thrones pollster predicts the next White House exit. According to the survey, it asked: “Of the following White House or Executive Branch staff members, who do you believe will be the next to resign or be terminated? Will it be…”
Attorney General Jeff Sessions tops the list by an almost two-to-one margin, with 16 percent saying he’s the next in line to depart the administration. Next up on the chart is White House Chief of Staff John Kelly. The poll says 9 percent of those surveyed think Kelly, who became chief of staff in July is likely to go. Tied with Kelly are senior counselor Kellyanne Conway, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
We will see how these predictions turn out. Should Jeff Sessions be worried? Maybe he has someone like Qyburn or Tyrion Lannister counseling him. Winter is coming for the White House.
