Hysterical Headlines (Funny or Absurd) for June 7th – CNN pulls a Rick Perry
Bottom Line: Your daily doses of nonsense in the media and my takes on them...
Hot Take: As Rick Perry might say...Whoops?! And for that to happen on the same day. Must be embarrassing. Oh, who am I kidding... There's no shame left at that network anyway.
Strategists Ask: What Does It Mean to 'Approve' of Trump? Byron York, DC Examiner
Hot Take: It's fascinating to continue to watch a bunch of consultants, strategists if it makes them feel more important, continue to operate as cluelessly today as they were 19 months ago. Frankly it's impressive that a bunch of people as clueless as these professional political fools maintain work. But good for them I guess. Anyway, this isn't complicated. This is one part the lack of belief that Donald Trump is President, still, and a lack of even intelligent base level analysis. For the actual factual stuff here's what it means.
On Election Day Donald Trump's average favorability rating was 42%. That netted him 46.1% of the vote. That means that at a minimum there's 4.1% of the population that might not "like", or potentially "approve" of him that are willing to potentially support him. That means that with an average 44% average rating recently his potential support is a likely a minimum of 48.1%. And that was free. You're welcome.
