President Donald Trump enthusiastically shared an image of a poll broadcast by Fox Business’ Lou Dobbs on Wednesday evening, showing his approval rating “soaring” at 55 percent. But the poll in question actually showed Trump with a 43 percent approval rating — the 55 percent figure is actually his unfavorable rating.
The president took much ridicule for this, but at least in this case it wasn’t entirely his fault — Dobbs, a massive Trump supporter, bears blame for putting out the incorrect information. And on Thursday, he issued a retraction.
Dobbs said that before he shared the latest poll on “radical Dimms [sic],” he “would like to repair” the incorrect information he reported the previous evening: his reporting of “a Georgetown poll showed president had an overall approval rating of 55 percent — the number, in fact, is 43 percent.”
‘The man who sold America’: Mitch McConnell’s mountain of political sins catalogued in devastating new profile
Mitch McConnell finally has the power he's longed for since he was a 22-year-old intern for Sen. John Sherman, but his ruthless march to become Senate majority leader has seen him abandon almost all of his stated principles -- and earned him a lot of enemies.
The Kentucky Republican has been unpopular in his home state for years, but this summer has seen his approval rating plunge to 18 percent after MSNBC's Joe Scarborough tarred and feathered him with the nickname "Moscow Mitch," and he's increasingly seen as "the man who sold America," reported Rolling Stone.
Sarah Sanders rages on Fox News that the ‘out-of-control’ media is ‘making stuff up’ about Trump
In her new gig as a Fox News contributor, former White House spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders complained to host Sean Hannity that the "out-of-control" media makes "stuff up" about Donald Trump because they hate him for winning in 2016.
Sanders, who once told reporters that "countless" FBI agents had lost confidence in James Comey only to later tell investigators from special counsel Robert Mueller's office that she made it up, complained to the Fox host about the press being untrustworthy.
Inside the secret GOP plan to keep power in 2020 — and beyond
In 2020, we need to pay attention to state elections as well as elections for president and Congress. State elections could decide whether the Republican Party further corrupts American democracy.
As demographics change — and America becomes more diverse and more liberal — the GOP has responded by implementing policies that will take away power from the American people. Rather than changing with the times, they’ve got another plan: minority rule – by them.
