68 percent of Americans said the president's comments were offensive but because the only voters who count are the president's supporters these Democrats are convinced they are on the losing side of this battle.

Reuters poll showed him losing 10 points with independents since last week. I don’t understand why oxygen is being given to the idea that this was anything but a terrible episode for the present. Why aren’t reporters more credulous about this crap?

Never look at a single poll, get a selection of trustworthy polls. I'll know better when I hear from Gallup and Ipsos/Reuters this week.

The poll I’m citing is from Reuters (I think it was released yesterday), but yes, I’m curious what his approval will be next week.

Thank you. I usually wait for the numbers to show up on Real Clear Politics. His overall numbers on Ipsos/Reuters went down this week, from -12 to -14. In the five poll average/median, his average stayed about the same and the median plummeted.

If the median plummeted, but not the average, that would mean the undecideds just went towards disapproval.

So far this week, two polls went up and two went down. The ones that went down were already low, so the median dropped. The two that rose were on the high end and changed by more than the dropping scores did. Still waiting for Gallup to check in.

What’s even worse is that he agreed to give anonymity to these fools. Their constituents have a vested interest in knowing who they are.

I think we can pretty much identify which house Dems would say this stuff. and count them on one hand. Gottheimer, Lipinski, etc

Gotta bothsides every issue, otherwise the GOP might accuse of being biased even harder.

Jake is tacitly. He hates these women and uncritically broadcasts the most obnoxious smears against them all the time.

and then he plays taped interviews of Richard Spencer (the human punching bag, not the Acting Defense Secretary) giving his opinion on whether Trump's comments were racist enough for him

Reporters go out of their way to lend credence to ideas they personally disagree with because they fear being labeled as partisans.

No, Jake Tapper agrees with this take. That is why hes going out of his way to give it oxygen.

Yeah Tapper is a bad example but I think it’s generally true of a certain class of establishment politics writers

It was the conventional wisdom that Trump could never win & the media stuck to that until he won. Then the conventional wisdom was changed to Trump is a political genius bc he was right & we were wrong and it will stay that way until he either he loses reelection or resigns.

Democrats (& their media friendlies) don't give a fcuk about independents. They actively marginalize anyone who isn't a partisan during the primaries then expect to be able to bully & force them to vote for dems come election day so they can go back to ignoring them the next day

Also remember this whole episode started w Pelosi attacking Progressives, so centrists want to spin this as part of their (repeatedly failed) strategy of being so close to losing they must give up all principles & support big $ donors to survive, which requires GOP to be winning
