What’s funny is the Jesse Jackson townhomes that used to be up the street from me were the worst neighborhood I ever hung in. He’s from about 2 miles from where I am now. My stepfather knew his gangster ass brothers and cousins.

Jesse has been kinda hated by people around here old enough to have known him. He went to a shitty school called sterling before it burned down. They never even rebuilt it. It’s still an empty field today. Terrible neighborhood....partly b cause of Jesses people and their gangs.

This statistic could finally end Trump. With any luck in 2020 we can get a partisan hack or corporatist in there.

CNN Poll: More approve of Mueller than of Trump

Quote:
Special counsel Robert Mueller's approval rating for handling the Russia investigation stands at 50% in a new CNN Poll conducted by SSRS. That outpaces President Donald Trump's approval rating on the matter by 20 points.

CNN'S SEPTEMBER POLL
Trump's approval down 6 points in a month


The poll is CNN's first since the conviction of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort on tax and bank fraud charges stemming from Mueller's investigation and guilty pleas from Trump's former lawyer Michael Cohen on several charges after an investigation that Mueller had referred to the US Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York.

Mueller's approval rating stands at its highest level in CNN polling, rising 3 points since August, a shift within the poll's margin of sampling error. Trump's rating, meanwhile, dipped 4 points, narrowly larger than the error margin.

Cohen's plea addressed charges including those related to his involvement in six-figure payments just before the 2016 election to silence two women for alleged affairs with Trump years previously. The President has denied the claims. The poll finds a growing share of Americans now think Trump did know about the $130,000 payment made directly by Cohen to porn star Stormy Daniels in October 2016 (73% say so in the survey, up from 67% in May). Almost two-thirds in the poll say Trump did direct his lawyer to make that payment, as Cohen claimed in court while entering his guilty plea.

Nearly half of Americans in the poll (47%) say the President ought to be impeached and removed from office, and among those who say Trump did direct Cohen to make the payment to Daniels, 69% say he ought to be impeached. Support for impeachment has risen since June, when 42% said Trump should be removed from office. That increase comes almost entirely among independents -- 48% now say the President ought to be impeached, up from 38% in June -- who have also soured on Trump's job performance generally.


Donald Trump is floating impeachment to rev up his base. Here's why that's still a stretch.

For some, that sentiment may reflect their personal desire for a new president more than an evidence-based assessment of whether he could be impeached. A majority of Americans, 53%, believe there is not enough cause for the House of Representatives to begin hearings into whether Trump should be impeached. Even among those who say the President should be impeached, 20% doubt that there is enough cause to begin hearings in the House.
Democratic leaders have shown no interest, at this time, in pursuing impeachment. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi recently said it would be a gift to Republicans, implying it would fire up Trump's base supporters. But Trump has recently warned his supporters that if Democrats take control of Congress next year, it will be a top agenda item for them.

House Republican, without evidence, suggests new texts show misconduct of former FBI officials

About 6 in 10 Americans say they consider the Russia investigation a serious matter (61%) rather than an effort to discredit Trump's presidency (33%). Around 7 in 10 (72%) say they think Trump should testify under oath for Mueller if asked. Among the 23% who say Trump shouldn't testify, about half feel that way because they think the President has no obligation to do so, while a third think that testifying could be a perjury trap.
The CNN Poll was conducted by SSRS from Sept. 6 through 9 among a random national sample of 1,003 adults reached on landlines or cellphones by a live interviewer. Results for the full sample have a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3.8 percentage points; it is larger for subgroups.

Quote:
CNN)President Donald Trump's approval rating in the latest CNN poll stands at just 36%. That's a 6-point drop from 42% last month.

Normally, I'd dismiss such a decline as statistical noise and want to see other polls before declaring that the President's standing among the public has diminished.
Here's the thing: CNN's poll is only the latest in a series of high-quality, live-interview polling over the last two weeks to show that Trump's approval rating is down. This dip could have a major impact on the midterms if it holds.
Eight high-quality polls have been completed over the two last weeks -- and every single one of them has Trump's approval falling.

Quote:
An average 3-point decline is rather remarkable for a President whose approval rating has been one of the steadiest on record. It would suggest that something the President did had a real impact on public perception.
House Republicans should worry about Trump's approval rating drop, if it holds through November. Voter opinions of the president have been increasingly tied up with how they vote in midterm elections.
CNN polling has regularly found that more than 80% of voters who approve of Trump are voting for Republican House candidates, compared with more than 80% of voters who disapprove of Trump voting for Democratic House candidates.
As I noted last week:
For Republicans to have a realistic (i.e. within the margin of error) shot of maintaining control of the House in 2018, Trump's approval rating must remain at least in the low 40s nationally.
For them to have a 50% chance of holding on to power in the House, Trump's approval rating will likely need to rise into the mid-40s.
Right now, Trump and his fellow Republicans are ... going the other (i.e. wrong) way.

Thats why I just HAD to block him. He legit makes me crazy with that dumb, scooby doo, shit. I'm convinced that if we were all Trump supporters, he would be arguing on the other side. Thats what he does. A true contrarian just for the hell of it. I normally don't have a problem with that, I do it myself sometimes but he takes it way over the top to the point I can't take him seriously anymore because I actually, truly believe, he's a really smart dude. Thats why I take it to be an act.

The coalition against Trump's trade war is going to have a huge impact. That's a lot of money funding an anti Trump message.

Damn, son even Starr knows what's up.

No one is above the law,” Starr told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Wednesday. “And so in my judgment the president can in fact be indicted,” he adds, as Mediaite reports.

Apparently not. Article 1 of the constitution explicitly says the president is subject to indictment AFTER impeachment and conviction in the senate. It even says conviction by the senate can’t carry any criminal liability, only removal from office. Criminal liability can only happen after that.

A bit off of topic but for what happened at Baylor under his watch after he went after Clinton for the Lewinsky scandal Starr is the jackass of the millennium.

Why do people act like blacks are an important electoral demographic? They are <13% of the population, are the second least politically engaged demo and a huge chunk of them are felons who cant even vote.

If you look at what changed for the GOP between '12 & '16 it was the targeting, increased turnout and increased percentage of.... WHITES.
