Would you like to prove that? Your chart, re the red line certainly doesn't. (All low 80's for the GOP POTUSes since Nixon -- movement looks like statistical noise to me).

The big change Pop's chart shows is that only 7% of dems approve of Trump.

The approval line for the GOP is pretty similar to recent other administrations on average.

So in a time of decreasing US political harmony, how surprising is this?

...

Look. By all means, if the dems are so serious -- PUT UP A QUALITY, CREDIBLE POTUS CANDIDATE, and they might well get elected.

NOT Bernie. NOT HRC.

IMO, Liz Warren is highly questionable, but seems to be the kind of candidate much of the dems seem to favor.

But hey, yelling a lot about a few topics worked for Trump, so maybe the "blue wavers" will love it. But if you want a more united US political front, I don't see her leading us there -- not even close.



Indeed, n the few Warren speeches I made myself sit through she seems very bitter and angry. Perhaps it is jst me, but I want my leaders to be upbeat and striving for a better world, not seeking revenge for past wrongs real or imagined.

I think Warren is a very smart and admirable lady. I have thought highly of her since watching a video of a presentation she gave maybe 10 or 15 years ago. I just don’t think that naturally translates into being an electable and effective President. Of course that all depends upon who she is running against. VP? Now that might be a starter idea.

I think the D’s trashing the Super Delegates changes a lot and makes Bernie the current front runner. I kind of doubt that will hold. I think the 2020 D primarys will be extremely interesting.

It also changes my perspective on Trumps potential rebid, this move by the D’s potentially declares a lot of his sail.

The reduction in power of super delegates in the Democrat party is a huge gift to Republicans. They just don't realize it yet.

This will result in a huge shift left as party bosses won't be able to stop the far left activists from installing their choice. Truly this is a gift from God if you are a Republican.

I respect John McCain for his military service, but his political 'service' disgusted me on many occasions. I still think he was the better choice in 2008 but he shot himself in the foot with his 'I'm suspending my campaign' posturing as if he were the only one who could solve the economic crisis.

regardless of what you think about his late stage politics you could at least show the man a bit of respect given he spent half a decade in a Viet Cong prison camp all for trying to keep America great back then.

In my view the courage that he displayed in the war and the courage he displayed in his political career (whether you like what he had to say or not) deserves some respect. He said what he thought and there should be no shame there.

You, on the other hand, should be very ashamed for that comment. Highly inappropriate.

John McCain and I both took the same oath to support and defend the Constitution. He betrayed that oath the moment he was elected to office. The fact that Soros is mourning his death should tell you all you need to know about him. I've voted for Republican presidents since 1980 but I couldn't bring myself to pull the lever for that POS.

You don't get a pass for life because you were in the military. Hitler and Mao were in the military too.

McCain also doesn't get a pass for being involved in the Keating Five, encouraging the IRS to target conservative advocacy groups like the tea party, and being part of the Trump dossier leaks to the press.

And last but not least, being the deciding vote against repealing obamacare. A vote he made totally out of spite and then bragged to his Democrat friends" Let's see Trump make America great now"

War criminal is as war criminal does. You self-anointed exceptionalist masters of the universe deny others the right to be patriotic. You assume that right is on your side while in fact you butcher thousands of innocent civilians in endless imperial wars of control and suppression. McSHITstain was a scumbag by what he did. His patriotism (ironic for a globalist shill) does not absolve him of this.

As Trump is to the the Left that was unable to mobilize itself, but not anymore, thank you Trump for that.

That the old guard crumble is good for what it is. What it gets replaced with, we'll just have to wait and see and, hopefully, it doesn't come out as bad as what Trump is doing to Republicans.

What old guard crumbling are you talking about. It is transparent that the old guard is not giving up and is throwing all it has at the real rebel, Trump. Waiting for the Democrats to challenge the system is insane. They are too busy trying to impose totalitarian control to fix the status quo in perpetuity.

Regressive left mobilization is not something to trumpet:

Is that all you have, dissident, on Democrats, their being prone to enforcing pc'ness??

Kind of ironic seeing how Trump has been banning the press from covering Presidential events.

Kind of ironic seeing how Republicans have been clapping down on the science press in federal and state agencies.

One press person was banned from one event. Obama kicked fox news entirely from a press conference. Didn't see you complaining about that. There is a daily press conference and Sarah sanders hasn't booted anyone from one yet. Even though cnn certainly would deserve it.

Didn't know about that incident Cog, but I found this headline:

Obama rips Fox News viewers: ‘You are living on a different planet’

Quite true. That planet doesn't even experience climate change! However, it definitely consist of a lot of pale white folks afraid of minorities and trends of the 21st century.

Wow, equating some CNN clown being thrown out a briefing to dozens of people being banned from the largest social media is some sort of new low for cognitive dissonance. Nobody stopped the CNN clown from going back to his MSM pulpit to spew his lies and slander. But critics of the current regime are being silenced in an obvious abuse of power by the Democrats and the owners of those social media companies.

And don't even try to invoke the private company gets to choose BS. The telephone company has no right to ban you for not being a PC narrative lemming or Alex Jones "tinfoil hat" wearer. Facebook, Twitter, Youtube and any other public information space should automatically have limitations as to who they can censor and ban. It is a public space and not their private residence, after all. America does not believe in socialist information spaces so private companies will always be involved in setting up and maintaining such spaces. Clearly they can't hind behind the "private" tag. In addition, we have the Democrats and the EUSSR lunatics openly attempting to regulate the whole internet and not just social media sites.

All you MSM lemmings are absurd. I find more actual information on Twitter about the situation in Syria than any of the NATO MSM lie factory productions. They fixate on government narratives and push the cockamamie chemical weapons attrocity BS transparently designed to enable NATO governments to bomb and regime change at will.

While all the CNN lemmings are busy hating on Russia, the real meddlers (e.g. Soros) are ignored. If you need CNN to think for you, then you are really sad.
