    I think they should keep on admitting that this has absolutely nothing to do with what Trump has done except for winning in 2016. Keep showing America just how bitter, angry and butthurt they are.

    Maybe they can get Hillary to again threaten that Democrats won't be civil again unless they are voted back into power.

    This is actually very entertaining .... "well, polls don't count", um.... "if they do, it just shows how dumb the American people are" .... "American wants impeachment, and we need to do our duty...." but... the people are dumb....

    It's quite a confining corner into which they have painted themselves.

    I know we all tend to do it, but this is particularly entertaining to see the Dems trumpet "polls show America wants Trump impeached and removed", but when the polls show otherwise.... "it's only one poll" "it's an outlier" "polls don't matter" "the American people are stupid" "the American people are uniformed".

    You can't make this stuff up.

    But before you start I suggest that you keep in mind that she confirmed that she had no first hand knowledge about any supposed quid pro quo or any other part of the investigation. Likewise, keep in mind that there is nothing wrong with a president firing an ambassador no matter how highly she thinks of herself. For instance, Obama fired every one of the holdover ambassadors from the Bush Administration, as was within his power to do. Trump was under no obligation to keep Yovanovitch, an Obama appointee.


    Yeah. That's what I thought.

    Okay, cold water time: micropolls MUST be weighted. Weighting is least accurate when the polity is shifting or the subject matter is unusual.

    I thought Emerson's approach was probably the best available: use the 2016 election as a guide to voting behavior when weighting the poll.


    That doesn't make it right!!!!!


    I've been telling the Dem Squad for months not to be so danged cocksure about these micropolls - now I'm telling you guys. All micropolls are SKEWED. Right now, they are skewed in ways that are difficult to predict. They are weighted to correct for skew - but it's like firing an artillery round at a target 30 miles away that you aren't 100% sure of the location using shims to support your guide that you cut out of greenwood this morning with a ax!!!! You'll get close a lot of the time, sometimes even hit the target but you will never be precise. Then the target moves...


    All that said, Emerson is probably right - because a more reliable metric supports it. Money. Trump and the RNC are breaking their own fundraising records now because they've already blasted everything else out of the water. The entire candidate field and the DNC are breaking records in a bad way - their totals are unprecedentedly low.

    These metrics do not move in lockstep, but people do vote with their wallets - and that data can be easily corrected for its natural skew (donation size). The RNC is doing well in both large and, more importantly, small, donations. THAT spells real trouble for the Dems three months out.

    While all that may be true, these polls are what the left was intending to use to put pressure on the Republicans in the House and Senate. That the polls didn't show an increasing desire by the American public to impeach Trump as they figured they would, and instead show the public actually soured a bit on the idea, is just a case of them essentially getting hoisted by their own petards, and some folks more than happy to point that out.

    Fact is - if there were any GOOD NEWS for support for impeachment, you wouldn't have to go hunting it.
