Zero respect even when I make bold predictions that come true.

I think we can all collectively say.

UCLA players' release from China secured before Trump got involved: report

Source: The Hill

President Trump reportedly had less impact than he claimed on the release of three UCLA basketball players detained in China last year, according to a new report Friday.

LiAngelo Ball, Jalen Hill and Cody Riley were arrested and detained on shoplifting charges in November while in China for a game.

Trump took credit for intervening and negotiating the players’ release, but a new report from ESPN finds that the charges had been dropped and the players’ passports returned two days before the White House told them it was involved.

A source told ESPN that the players' return flights were already secured by the time White House chief of staff John Kelly called to tell the players that the White House was getting involved.

Democrats are sweeping statehouse seats, and it's making the GOP nervous

  • Democrats have flipped 39 state legislative seats since President Donald Trump took office, many of them in deeply red districts Trump swept by large margins in 2016.
  • Republicans, by comparison, have flipped just four seats from blue to red.

Last year, Democrats flipped 33 state legislative seats, including 15 in the Virginia statehouse, and took the New Jersey governor's mansion and a US Senate seat in ruby red Alabama. So far in 2018, the party has made unexpected gains in conservative states, including Wisconsin, Missouri, Florida, and Kentucky.

Last week, Democrat Philip Spagnuolo beat Republican Les Cartier by eight points in a district Trump won by 13. And in Connecticut, Democrat Phil Young flipped a seat that had been under GOP control for the last 44 years.

Democrats and Republicans alike are chalking up the Democratic wins to widespread anti-Trump sentiment that Democrats hope will power them to a blue wave in the midterm elections this year.

And prominent Republicans are voicing increasing concern about the phenomenon.


"The Democrats are highly motivated," Corey Lewandowski, President Donald Trump's former campaign manager, warned at a rally for the Republican candidate for a Florida statehouse seat Democrats flipped this week. "They're winning elections in places where they shouldn't be. We've seen them win statehouse seats in Wisconsin. We've seen them win big mayor's races in New Hampshire. ... Make no mistake — the Democrats are unified."

Democrats have a clear path to retaking the House if 4 things fall into place

  • Pollsters and political strategists in both parties are predicting that Republicans will lose their majority in the US House this fall.
  • Political strategist Chris Krueger told Axios that there are four "glaring red flags" for the GOP.
  • These include the president's low approval rating, the GOP's endangered California and Pennsylvania delegations, suburban dissatisfaction with the GOP, and the fact that the president will not be on the ballot.

Chris Krueger, managing director of Cowen & Co.'s Washington Research Group, laid out in a note to clients on Monday that he sees four "glaring red flags" for the Republican majority in the House (h/t Axios):

  1. First, he pointed out that in every instance — there have been six — in which the president's approval rating has been below 50% in the lead up to midterm elections, the president's party has lost an average of 40 seats.

  2. Krueger argues that California and Pennsylvania alone could lead Democrats halfway to victory. In California, where anti-Trump sentiment is sky high, there are 14 House Republicans. He says that combining retirements, dissatisfaction with the tax bill — which eliminates significant local and state tax deductions that impact Californians — and general frustration with the president, at least seven of those Congress members could be gone. And in Pennsylvania, the state supreme court just approved a Democratic-led redistricting effort that will endanger the state's delegation along with general anti-Trump feeling.

  3. Krueger says the suburbs will pose a major problem for the GOP, which saw dramatic defeats in Virginia and New Jersey last fall. There are 23 House Republicans in districts, many of them suburban, that Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton won in 2016.

  4. Lastly, he predicts many of Trump's 2016 supporters won't be motivated to vote on a ticket that doesn't include Trump. Krueger says that Trump voters are specifically motivated by the president, and won't rush to the polls this fall to support "generic House Republicans." "You do not drain the swamp by reelecting the establishment and the deep state," he wrote.

Yeah, baby!

Unpopular first term president, large generic ballot gap, thunderous opponent base energy, dull majority party energy.

All are bad signs before you even get to the Russia probe.

But this President drew an inside straight in 2016, defying the odds.

Don't be so sure he and his party can't do the same in 2018.

Rasmussen the worst poll in the country.

The polls don't lie 2freaky!

this is also the reason why we knew beforehand that Hillary would become president or that Britain would remain in the Europoean Union, as well as the results in many European elections over the last few years. right? right?? those polls were ALWAYS accurate. at least if we exclude and ignore 90% of them, which is good enuff already

LMFAO what a propaganda driven bubble fool
