    What's stupid is in how you're totally wrong on this. The GOP was trying to shut down the government to defund Planned Parenthood. It was not the Democrats threatening to shut it down in order to fund Planned Parenthood. 

It's the same thing. In 2015, republicans had control of the House and responsibility to write the annual spending bill. It's no different than a person writing their own budget and deciding to not renew Netflix. So in 2015, democrats were willing to shut down the government to force renewal of Netflix (Planned Parenthood) that Congress didn't want funded.

I keep correcting you.

    Ah, the lack of statistical understanding again. You cite an instance where polling was wrong and so conclude all polling is wrong when the majority of the time, polling is right. Anyway, Hillary didn't have a 20 point lead on Trump. The Dems have a 20 point lead on Trump as to whom is being blamed for the shutdown. In all honesty, it should be much bigger given that Trump took ownership of the shutdown on camera, a move at the time you thought was genius. Now in polling, approval among Trump's most loyal supporters, white males without college degrees, has dropped from 54% to 45% in the past month's time. 60% of Americans oppose the wall.

Because I learned how fickle people and polling results are from the last election, and sadly, you still don't seem to get it. Democrats have no victories because they criticize but have no plan.
