Remember how liberals were supposed to understand middle America’s Trump love? New poll shows little love left.

A just-released NBC News/Marist poll shows Middle America has lost its love of Donald Trump. President Donald Trump’s approval rating have declined dramatically in Michigan, Minnesota, and Wisconsin – which boasts GOP Speaker of the House Paul Ryan as its hometown boy.

In Michigan, just 36 percent of registered voters approve of Trump. 54 percent disapprove.

In Minnesota, Trump fares slightly better: 38% approve, 51% disapprove.

And in Wisconsin, the ratio is 36% approve, 52% disapprove.

“Democrats enjoy a lead in congressional preference from 8 points to 12 points in these three states,” NBC News notes, adding that “majorities in all three states say their vote in November will be a message that more Democrats are needed in Congress to be a check and balance on the president.”

It actually gets worse for Trump.

In Michigan, less than three in ten registered voters (28%) want Trump to have a second term.

In Minnesota, the number sits at just 30%, with 62% saying Trump should be a one-term president.

And in Wisconsin, 31% would vote to re-elect, 63% would not.

‘Martyrdom for snowflakes’: CNN analyst knocks Republicans who desperately wanted to be arrested at protest

Seth Meyers says Republicans storming classified room looked like a protest at a pharmacy that ran out of Viagra

Published

"Late Night" comedian Seth Meyers couldn't help but lambast the far-right Republicans angry that they're not being included in the depositions ahead of the impeachment hearings.

Wednesday, Republicans stormed a secure room known as a SCIF (Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility), because they seemed to misunderstand the difference between a deposition and a hearing. In Congressional hearings, witnesses will be presented for members of the committee to question. In a classified deposition, the witness can give information that is considered classified for security reasons. Oddly, some members who are allowed in the room were also protesting.

CNN's Don Lemon typically deals with difficult and intense topics at the top of his weekly show. Wednesday night, however, after a serious opener about Syria and ISIS, Lemon broke into hysterics over President Donald Trump's flub saying he would build a border wall on Colorado's border.

"You know why we're going to win New Mexico? Because they want safety on our border. And they didn't have it," said Trump. "And we're building a wall on the border of New Mexico. And we're building a wall in Colorado. We're building a beautiful wall, a big one that really works — you can't get over, you can't get under. And we're building a wall in Texas. And we're not building a wall in Kansas, but they get the benefit of the walls that we just mentioned. And Louisiana's incredible."
