    President Donald Trump is facing broad disapproval for his management of the two major crises gripping the nation, with two-thirds of Americans giving him low marks for both his response to the coronavirus pandemic and his handling of race relations, according to a new ABC News/Ipsos poll released Friday. Evaluation of Trump's oversight of the COVID-19 crisis reached a new low since ABC News/Ipsos began surveying on the coronavirus in March, with 67% disapproving of his efforts. One-third of the country approves of the president's oversight of the pandemic. Over nearly four months of polling, Trump's approval has mostly held...

    President Donald Trump's campaign rally in Tulsa in late June that drew thousands of participants and large protests "likely contributed" to a dramatic surge in new coronavirus cases, Tulsa City-County Health Department Director Dr. Bruce Dart said Wednesday. Tulsa County reported 261 confirmed new cases on Monday, a one-day record high, and another 206 cases on Tuesday. By comparison, during the week before the June 20 Trump rally, there were 76 cases on Monday and 96 on Tuesday. Although the health department’s policy is to not publicly identify individual settings where people may have contracted the virus, Dart said those...

  • Scientists: Without vaccine, we'll never reach herd immunity for COVID-19

    On June 26, Dr. Anthony Fauci announced it's "unlikely" that a COVID-19 vaccine with 70-75% efficacy taken by two-thirds of Americans can provide herd immunity to the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus. His statement has since stirred discussion about America's anti-vaccine movement. A crucial question remains unanswered, however: Is COVID-19 even subject to herd immunity? From universities to sports teams, top experts are still debating this issue. While the world anxiously awaits a vaccine, the length and durability of the protective immunity it would provide is far more in doubt than one might think. A new study from China shows that antibodies can...
  • Trump tries to drag America backward on a very different July 4th

    On a very different Fourth of July, when many Americans are wrestling with the racist misdeeds of the country's heroes and confronting an unrelenting pandemic with surging cases, their commander-in-chief is attempting to drag America backward -- stirring fear of cultural change while flouting the most basic scientific evidence about disease transmission. In a jaw-dropping speech that amounted to a culture war bonfire, President Trump used the backdrop of Mount Rushmore to frame protesters as a nefarious left-wing mob that intends to "end America." Those opponents, he argued, are engaged in a "merciless campaign to wipe out our history, defame...

    General Michael Flynn administers "Q-Anon Oath" to family members. By way of a post to 8kun last month, the anonymous poster known as Q-Anon requested followers to take the following oath: I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter:...

    Niskanen Center ^ | June 30 2020 | BY MILEAH KROMER, MELISSA DECKMAN
    Joe Biden was hardly the darling of the youth vote during the Democratic primaries. From the Iowa caucuses through the March 17 primaries, he won just 22 percent of the votes among those younger than 45 years old and far less among those aged 18-24. But despite his low levels of initial support and ongoing reports of a lack of enthusiasm for his candidacy, polls now show the former vice president boasting a 20+ point lead over Pres. Donald Trump among young voters. It’s little wonder why. Millennials (born 1981 to 1996) and Generation Z (born after 1996) identify or...
  • Jill Biden: ‘A Lot of Republicans Are Going to Vote for Joe’ — Trump’s Supporters ‘Disillusioned’

    Tuesday on ABC’s “The View,” former second lady Jill Biden predicted “a lot of Republicans” would vote for her husband, presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden in November. Co-host Meghan McCain said, “As you know, Republicans are very tribal. Trump says that he has a 96% approval rating in the Republican Party. He’s predicting a big win because of the silent majority, which we know from 2016 does exist. How can you counter what he’s saying?”
  • Why Biden’s Lead Is Safer Than Clinton’s

    Slate ^ | June 26, 2020 | William Saletan
    Former Vice President Joe Biden is thumping President Donald Trump in the polls. As of Friday, Biden led Trump by 10 percentage points in the RealClearPolitics national average and by six to nine points in each of four key states: Florida, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. But many Democrats refuse to trust these numbers. They feel burned by 2016, when Hillary Clinton lost after leading in the polls for months. They’re afraid Trump will come back again. That could happen. But it probably won’t, and one reason is that Biden isn’t Clinton. You can argue that public antipathy toward Clinton was...

    VOTERS IN ALL SIX TOP battleground states favor Joe Biden over President Donald Trump by comfortable margins, worrying news for Trump, who won every one of those states in 2016, according to a New York Times/Siena College Battleground poll released Thursday morning. The survey found that Biden is ahead of Trump by double digits in the core battlegrounds of Pennsylvania (where Biden has a 10-point lead), Michigan and Wisconsin (where Biden leads in each by 11 percentage points). Trump won those three states narrowly in 2016, ensuring his victory over Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. Further, the former vice president leads...

    Tuesday on CBS Radio, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) predicted a victory for Democrats, saying they will win the White House, Senate majority and House majority in November. When host Steve Futterman asked what type of campaign she expects Trump to run this fall, Pelosi said, “I think we can expect the same kind of campaign we had before, one focusing on fear and dishonesty.” She continued, “Again, he will focus on China…because he is always projecting his weakness on others. He knows he is in trouble in China because he has said to the president of China, ‘I’ll look...

    Everywhere Donald Trump looks, he sees political fires that threaten to engulf his presidency. he Supreme Court has handed him two stunning rebukes in the last week -- one on gay rights and the other blocking the President from ending the DACA program. Senate Republicans have shown increasing willingness to buck Trump. On Wednesday every GOP senator wore a mask at a press conference. Sen.

The great bubbles can go on a long time and inflict a lot of pain but at least I think we know now that we’re in one. And the chutzpah involved in having a bubble at a time of massive economic and financial uncertainty is substantial.’ "A market that may be the most bubblicious he’s seen in his storied career." "Grantham is worth paying attention to due to his prescient calls over the years. He said that...

    The top U.N. human rights body agreed on Monday to hold an urgent debate on allegations of “systemic racism, police brutality and violence against peaceful protests” in the United States and elsewhere on Wednesday. The U.N. Human Rights Council’s decision followed a request last week by Burkina Faso on behalf of African countries in response to the killing of George Floyd, an African American, on May 25 under the knee of a white Minneapolis police officer. His death has ignited protests across the nation and worldwide. “We think it is a moment to really discuss this issue, as you have...

    But the president might not get so lucky this time around. A wave of new polling shows that Trump is doing significantly worse among women than he was four years ago. According to an analysis from the New York Times, Trump trailed Clinton by 14 points among female voters heading into 2016. Today, he's behind expected Democratic nominee Joe Biden by 25 points. "That's a huge falloff and a big problem," said Douglas Holtz-Eakin, president of the center-right American Action Forum. Plus, a key demographic that helped seal Trump's electoral victory is starting to erode. Recent polling shows that white...

    PRESIDENT Donald Trump has a dramatically more enthusiastic voter fan base than Joe Biden, according to a new poll. But the presumptive Democratic nominee still leads, nationally, benefiting from a deep desire among his supporters to get Trump out of office. The national survey, conducted by SSRS for CNN, found that 7 in 10 Trump voters are voting to reelect the president primarily because they support Trump, with 27% saying their decision is a vote against Biden. The former vice president, meanwhile, has a less-devoted following, with 37% of Biden voters saying they plan to cast a pro-Biden vote, and...
