    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.


You could have said that though. You followed up with saying polls were against you.

What Pelosi did makes it look much more partisan. However, I am not sure how that really helps Trump in any way either. Neither side will come looking great, but like I said.

It is historically not the party lacking power takes a beating for in the end. One could even cite polls, like I said, of Trump's core support faltering too. So while the Dems could start falling off as well, Trump still has a ways to go down too.

So it is not like he is winning the PR war on this.
