I wonder if you consider that professional pollsters have understood the existence of the Bradley Effect for decades, and account for it in their modeling

I donít know that the Bradley Effect applies to kiidcarter8ís ďtheoryĒ or how it would be incorporated into polling on approval of Trumpís job performance.

I do know that he was elected with 46% of the vote, and am extremely skeptical of any contention that Americans getting the opportunity to see how he has done the job has led to his becoming more popular, not less.

Usual Republican Hypocrisy:

The same people who went after a credible victim of sexual assault for defaming Kavanaugh accuse A middle school teacher, with no evidence, of committing sexual assault in order to defend Kavanaugh.

https://www.thedailybeast.com/ed-whelan-judge-kavanaughs-defender-definitely-just-committed-defamation

Astonishingly, Whelan also tweeted the name, former address, photographs, and Facebook posts of this individual, who is a private citizen. Immediately, condemnations rained down on the once-lionized activist (a former clerk to Justice Scalia and head of the right-wing Ethics and Public Policy Center) from all quarters: conservative and liberal, public and private. Immediately, some wondered whether his tweets constitute defamation.

And now some good questions being asked how Whelan and others on the Senate Judiciary staff knew the identities of other attendees of the party, when they haven't talked to Ford, Kavanaugh claims he wasn't there, and his friend says he can't remember it.

Nope.  A knowledge of how each and every major action Trump has taken since becoming President has been seen by Americans, as backed by credible polling and interim off-year elections ...

- Backing a healthcare bill that would throw 30 million off their insurance (which had his - approval down to the low 30s in some polls at the time)
- A tax cut bill that is highly unpopular and that 2 of 3 Americans know was for the wealthy (according to the GOP's own internal polls)
- Refusing to denounce White Supremacists after Charlottesville
- Campaigning for a credibly accused child molester
- Repeated and ongoing corruption of his cabinet members
- "Shithole Countries"
- Separating Children from families seeking asylum (500 still not reunited)
- Puerto Rico (and his asinine comments re: the death toll)
- Pushing through a judge who represents a real threat to a ruling that most Americans support, even after he is credibly accused of sexual assault.
- The guilty pleas and indictments of numerous campaign associates as it becomes more and more likely that he cooperated with the intelligence services of a hostile foreign power to win his election (49% of Americans support impeachment)

And there is probably so much I am leaving out.

Existing in the FOX News bubble, I'm sure you have no clue how all this played in real America.  But you would have to have your head seriously up your behind to contend that Trump has earned himself more support over the last two years.

And certainly, the results Republicans themselves expect to see in the November election don't suggest that he has.

Wave that foam finger.  We are giving a lifetime appointment to a judge who may have committed sexual assault, and will lie about it under oath.

If Kavanaugh was in any way involved in Whelanís tweets, then itís a serious mark against his judgment and character. People who want to serve on the nationís highest court should not be willing to casually drag a private citizen through the mud, using dubiously legal tactics, to advance their own goals. The same goes for other people in public office, be they Senate Republicans or White House officials.

Yeah, run HARD on the #GOPTaxScam... please.


The tax law slashed the corporate tax rate permanently to 21 percent from 35 percent. It also reduced individual tax rates, doubled the standard deduction, eliminated or capped some itemized deductions, most notably for state and local taxes, and created a special break for pass-through businesses like partnerships until the end of 2025. That year, 25 percent of the gains will go to the top 1 percent while 66 percent of the benefits will go to the top one-fifth of earners, according to an analysis from the Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center.

Taxes are reduced on average for all quintiles of Americans through 2025, although some would pay more due to the limitation of tax deductions. By 2027, after the individual changes have sunset, 83 percent of the benefits will go to the top 1 percent.



The RNC study says Americans worry the tax law will lead to cuts in Social Security and Medicare, concluding that ďmost voters believe that the GOP wants to cut back on these programs in order to provide tax breaks for corporations and the wealthy.Ē It attributes that finding to ďa fairly disciplined Democrat attack against the recent tax cuts.Ē

Not to mention that that is exactly what the GOP leadership is saying, already!
