    Your last statement is worded like your prediction was confirmed. Then in the next sentence you are saying that the polls say otherwise. I am not sure how your prediction was confirmed based on current evidence...you are confirming your prediction with a prediction.


Because polls follow where headlines are trending. People believe what they're told they should believe. So when you start seeing headlines like this taking sprout--

https://www.cbsnews.com/video/government-shutdown-that-began-over-border-security-now-a-petty-political-battle/

--it indicates that a shift is occurring. That democrats, who argued the moral high ground, are starting to be viewed as petty. That it's no longer just Trump responsible for the shutdown, but "they" (president + congress). "Shutdown began over border security, now a petty political battle."

1:00 - 1:12 of the clip is hilarious, haha.
