Is Real Clear Politics a reputable source for the Borgists? I thought it was. Foolish me. They run summaries of a number of daily tracking polls every day. the Borgists prefer the Gallup poll evidently because it consistently shows Trump with very low numbers (circa 38%) while the Rasmussen Poll has shown his approval number climbing from around 44% to 55% yesterday.
This old man watches a lot of TV news. I have yet to hear any of the TV news stations even mention the Rasmussen Poll. Not even Foxnews mentions it.
And today "Cracker Barrel Smerconish," a pseudo neutral politicallu, had the audacity to proclaim on his news program that what remains of Trump's support is in "Cracker Barrel Counties," i.e., among rural buffoons. One of his guests told him that such attitudes are why the Democrats so thoroughly lost the 2016 election. He shrugged that off citing the Gallup Poll as evidence that the deluded Cracker Barrel denizens are learning their error.
Well, pilgrims, I think the Democrats deserve to retain such attitudes and their selective delusion concerning polling and data.
Smerconish claimed in his own defense to like Cracker Barrel food. I do not. I think their dining rooms are over sized McDonald's seeking to imitate rural cooking in America. pl
