You Can Lead A Leftist To Knowledge But You Can’t Make Him Think

Journalisming in the Trump era is a study in confirmation bias. Journalists decided Trump was evil, and then went out looking for evidence to prove it. But when you start with a faulty premise (Orange Man Bad!) it affects how and where you look for evidence. By only looking for evidence that Trump is evil, they ignored or dismissed evidence to the contrary.

Meanwhile, from Ken Stern over at Vanity, Vanity, All Is Vanity Fair:

It was a brief, shining moment for congressional Democrats: As details of Trump’s Ukrainian phone call spilled out, and as House Democrats revved the impeachment engine, early polls evidenced strong support for removing Donald Trump from office. Though much of that support came from Democrats, critically, it also came from Independents: A late October Gallup poll put Independents in favor of removing Trump from office at 53% to 44%, and a Morning Consult poll in early November revealed an even greater gap, 49% to 34%, in favor of removal.

That early enthusiasm represented a potential bonanza for the Democrats, albeit a surprising one. Independents tend to be moderate and pay less attention to newsbreaks and politics, and are an unlikely group to suddenly surge in support of a precipitous step like impeachment. Independents are also one of the keys, if not the key, to the 2020 elections. According to Gallup, self-identified Independents make up roughly 40% of the electorate. Many of these voters are closet partisans, reliably voting for one party or another, but enough of them—call it somewhere between 10% or 20%—are true “persuadables” or “movables” whose votes are up for grabs. Even a modest shift in allegiance among this group could determine the outcome next November.

Alas, for the Democrats, the promising numbers of late October and early November rapidly dissipated, and polling numbers have reverted to a level more consistent with long-term opinions on President Trump. In the latest Politico/Morning Consult poll, released on November 19, Independents opposed impeachment and removal from office 46% to 39%, a number close to the rolling averages of the last few weeks. It is notable that the poll was fielded after the first public impeachment hearings. Even the compelling testimony of witnesses like Marie Yovanovitch, the former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, failed to move the needle on public opinion. That doesn’t mean further hearings won’t energize greater opposition to Trump, but it’s a little hard to imagine more effective testimony than that offered by Yovanovitch and some of her Foreign Service colleagues.

To understand the relative lack of enthusiasm among Independents for impeachment, I took a close look at data from the most recent Politico/Morning Consult tracking poll, a poll in which the Hive had the opportunity to propose questions focused on Independents and their views. The data, along with supplementary interviews, illustrates an electorate that believes the impeachment inquiry is connected to the priorities of politicians and the media—not of ordinary voters—and an electorate confused and dispirited by the nonstop parade of Washington scandals.

How many times in recent years have the Democrats come up with a witness or six that they say is credible and compelling, but when the witness is questioned by anyone except the friendliest of investigators they are nor compelling or credible?

The Democrats typically start these scandals with a full court press by the media. The initial narratives might seem compelling, but eventually the things the Left ignored or covered up begin to leak out.

Ask independents for their opinions when the Democrats are at their high-water mark on a story and you’ll get one answer. Come back to a couple weeks when the truth has begun to come out and you’ll get a different one.

Third, as other reporting has suggested, Independents suffer from scandal fatigue and overall confusion. They agreed with the statement “[It is] difficult to tell all the investigations in Washington apart” by a roughly two-to-one margin. (Even Democrats concur by a substantial, if somewhat smaller, margin). This no doubt reflects a successful Trump strategy to sow confusion and spread blame. By constantly charging others with acting badly and by creating such a long litany of disputable acts, Trump has in effect led many voters to dismiss the whole mess as the type of bad thing that all politicians do. Confusion has been aggravated by a rating-seeking media, whose credibility has been undermined by the fact that some cable hosts and their guests have consistently predicated, with astonishing stubbornness and inaccuracy, that the next scandal will be the one that topples Trump. It may be that the Democrats finally have the best facts against Trump, and the clearest story line of all. But they face a segment of the public that is jaundiced by what has gone on before.

All of these so-called Trump scandals have one thing in common, and that one thing is nothing.

Nothing.

No thing.

As in, “The Democrats got nothing on Trump.” or “The investigation revealed nothing incriminating.” Or, my personal favorite: “Nothing can stop Trump in 2020.”

    I am inclined to think in addition to the dem high water mark it may have also been the way the questions were structured in the poll. I’m a staunch Trump supporter, by if polled…..doubtful…..if I was asked ion a poll a question such as. “If POTUS is found to have committed a crime….bribery….treason….fill in the blank, would you support impeachment and removal from office?

    Only the most closed minded, hard core partisan would ever answer a question like that as NO. My goodness if any POTUS was found to have committed a serious crime they should be impeached and removed.

    I know the subsets showed those polls mostly over sampled democrats, but I really think part of it was the exact phrasing of the question, combined with the one sided media push.

  5. elliesmom says:

    Scott Adams did a spiel on how it’s two movies playing on the same screen a couple of years ago. I try to keep that idea in my head when I’m dealing with the leftists in my world. I had an online discussion with an in real life friend this morning about why she supports “choice” but doesn’t consider herself “pro-abortion”. I asked her if she would support any laws that give women some choice about abortion, but not abortion on demand. Because I think that’s still being “pro-choice”. Of course not, she said. If you support “choice”, then a woman has to have all of the choices available. So then you support abortion on demand at any point in a pregnancy. How is that not “pro-abortion”? Because she thinks abortion is a “necessary evil”. Then you support people doing evil things? What other evil things do you support?

    https://nypost.com/2019/11/23/the-move-to-cancel-gauguin-could-kill-off-western-culture/

    The “warnings” against Gauguin are another step toward excommunicating every Western creative talent from the realm of permissible enjoyment. If left unopposed, the PC fascists will inevitably ban everything by Western-world artists, writers and musicians due to perceived “sensitivities” or “colonialist” violations.

    • Miranda says:

      I don’t agree with excommunication, but I think knowing what kind of person the artist was is important and certainly colors my view of their work. When I read Dickens’ moralizing, I remember he tried to have his wife committed to an asylum as a way of divorcing her. I have no interest in the music of Ike Turner…I can listen to someone that as far as I know didn’t beat his wife. It hurt when I found out Marion Zimmer Bradley molested her daughter, but I’m glad I know.

      If Gauguin and Caraveggio raped their models, then, yeah, I want to know that.

      • Mothy67 says:

        It has been over 30 years since I read I, Tina -but as I recall it was very different from What’s Love Got to Do With It. Anna Mae Bullock was far more charitable to Ike than the disney film.

      • Mothy67 says:

        How do you feel about the response to Kevin Spacey? He did not rape anyone. Yes he picked up a young boy at an adult party and laid him on a bed. He did not take it further. Really bad action, but pales in comparison to just about every party I have been to in LA. I was a bartender in New York in the theater district. I had the keys. The party often got started after 4 am. Men and women throw themselves at stars and producers. I don’t find it worthy of a Law & Order rerun that a guy traded a job for sex. It happens everyday and it is not just women. Nathan Lane was a regular back before it was okay to be gay straight guys were all over him. My big take away from #MeToo was that it seems selective and at times silly. Going to a hotel room with Louis K? You do not go to a hotel with a comic in the wee hours and expect backgammon. I strongly dislike Spacey as a person not a celebrity, but I was at a loss by how quickly he became a pariah. I saw him in The Iceman Cometh on Broadway. Tickets were then 200 for a matinee. I was in the orchestra but some idiot forgot to turn off the office phones i was seated next to the office. 200 hundred a seat with a phone ringing off the hook. I got another set of tickets because I complained which I sold for two thousand. You could not get good seats. My boss’s mother flew in from Michigan to see the show and was grateful I sold her 200 dollar tickets for two thousand. He was that hot on Broadway. I am a big O’NEILL fan, but Spacey did not thrill me at all. Tony Danza imho stole the show as the bartender. Years later , decades later he puts Netflix on the map with House of Cards. Then suddenly he is the worst person in the world because he hit on a minor and much later everyone who ever worked with him claims he was sexually aggressive. I have no doubt he was. I do not like Kevin, but he is not a monster. I have dealt with far worse as a bartender. Drunk guys showing me their penis at 5 am is always fun as you pour them into a cab. The theater community is laden with trading on sex. Ashley Judd claiming #MeToo strikes me as so fake.
        I guess my point is can we afford to write off every artist with a complicated past? Suzanne Mallouk was one of my friends. She was Jean Michelle Basquiat’s lover. She turned me on to heroin. I only snorted and then spent months going to NA. She was hurting and decided to take me with her down that hole. I was able to walk away. She is now an MD with a specialty in substance abuse she practices in New York. I could not blame her if I had given up my own life to drugs. Yes i was 22 and I fell into the art world. I was in way over my head. She needed company on her trip to hell and I was alone in New York. I moved there by myself. Heroin was so thrilling at first. Fuck it sucks when you quit. I did midnight madness for more than six months. I can only speak of those that have died. Midnight Madness is on the corner of Verrick and Houston. It is AA but almost everyone who went was battling hard core drugs. Heroin mostly. It runs all night at ten minutes after the hour. I worked near Washington Square Park so I walked there every night after work as I struggled to not surrender to heroin. Life has a funny way of giving you what you need. I had no right to get all I have gotten. I found myself sitting in diners with Lou Reed eating split pea soup at 5 am
        Julian Schnabel made a piss poor movie about Basquiat. David Bowie played Warhol. The film is trite. Suzanne Mallouk is a practicing psychiatrist in New York. She was a high school drop out. Illegal but got amnesty from Reagan. I could choose to look at her with a jaundiced eye. I was so young. I choose not to. I do the same with Fydor Doestoyevsky. Kafka, Freud, Goethe, and The Stand by King and The Thorn Birds. I can’t judge an artist. I was so young and poor. My mom was a member of the doubleday book club. We didn ‘t even have a phone. She forgot to send back the stickers. A book arrived on the porch.
        All those words wrapped in paper. I was eleven or twelve I didn’t know about books. I read The Thorn Birds in one day. It changed me. I had nothing and this author of a soap opera novel catapulted me into a world outside myself. Maggie Cleary, Drogheda, a dress the color of ashes of rose. If I found out Colleen McCullough was a pseudonym for Jeffrey Dahmer it would not change how I feel about the book. I don’t get most of the stuff at MOMA or the Guggenheim.
        I will never understand how my proggie friends go gaga over Mark Rothko. I do not get it.

        • Miranda says:

          Kevin Spacey is a very good actor, but I’m not going to support him with money. I also don’t watch Whoopi ‘rape-rape’ Goldberg or Woody Allen. The actors in the Marvel movies made me so angry with their spiels about Trump, that I didn’t watch the last few movies. Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johannson, and Chris Evans annoy me, so I don’t want to watch them do anything. Same for De Niro. The cast of Hamilton ruined my enjoyment of Broadway. This may be overreacting, but people have to make these decisions for themselves, and it doesn’t impact anyone but me. I have no power to harm Kevin Spacey.

          I’m not sure what’s supposed to be up with King’s The Stand (racism?) I didn’t care for the group child sex scene in It, but they’re fictional works and no actual people were harmed, so I don’t care what books he writes. I got bored with him because the last few books he wrote sucked and he was another anti-Trump fanatic. This is also true for Joss Whedon. I used to love his stuff. Buffy the Vampire Slayer was my favorite TV show of all time, but Trump hatred took over his life, and I have no interest in watching anything of his.

          I used to enjoy Smallville, and Chloe was my favorite character. Allison Mack was arrested for sex trafficking, and I can’t see her character without knowing what the actress did. It doesn’t happen in a void.

          • Mothy67 says:

            I agree with you about actors, but for me it’s because I can no longer not see their politics. Streep is the worst. I hear her tirade from the Oscars every time I see her. I can’t get lost in the story. Oddly Susan Sarandon does not bother me. Never has and she’s always been political and active. Perhaps it’s in the Trump era I feel like they are attacking me.

    • elliesmom says:

      Paul Gaugin has been dead for over a hundred years. Banning his work isn’t going to “culture shame” him into only painting fully-clothed elderly women. It’s also not going to have an effect on current artists. Being “edgy is en vogue.

      I used to think it would be hard to erase history, but now I think it’s far too easy. For many people seeing statues on their travels is the only exposure to real history they get. Remove the statues and in a short time the history disappears. I recently had a discussion about the Second Amendment with someone. She had no idea the British regulars marched to Concord to blow up the munitions stores that belonged to the colonists and to arrest some of the MA colony’s finest gun makers. Anyone who stops by the visitors’ center at the Old North Bridge knows why the British headed out there instead of to RI. Howard Zinn has done a good job of blocking any real understanding of why the First Amendment was the first one written followed by the Second. Kids don’t learn about why an armed population was so important and still is, but they know guns are bad because someone might shoot up their school. The Old North Bridge serves no purpose today except to remind people of why we need the right to bear arms. I could see its becoming a target for removal in the current atmosphere. I’m actually surprised the anti-gun crowd hasn’t made it a target for destruction, but maybe that’s a testament to how successful Zinn has been. Why tear down a beautiful testament to our past if it has become just an old footbridge across a pretty river?

      Gaugin lived and was an influential artist. Young people already don’t know who he was and why his works are so valuable unless they take an art history class. He’s already been “disappeared” for the most part. That’s a shame, and we should care, but it’s what else that’s being disappeared that’s scary.

    Y’all were talking about Barron’s height.
    Shaypup has had a boyfriend since second grade. I saw it for what it was. She had her first heart break
    I never had to worry, but now there is Richard. I had to deal with little tiny men. Richard is 5″ 11. He’s a very smart focused child. I think my mom is a little thrown because he is first generation American. His parents are Chinese and Polynesian. He is 13 and speaks 5 languages.
    Silly me thought the teenage years were going to be easier. All the kids were here watching the It movies until 4 am. We had light up night last night. The girls were staying here the boys at Richards. Of course his mom is a nurse and decided to do overtime last minute. I was not permitting children to walk home at 4 a.m. I said girls upstairs boys living room. No one leaves until after breakfast. I channel my inner Roseanne. 6:30 am rolls around Richard’s mom shows up.
    It is pouring rain. I go out to chat. Say this is not cool. She was going to let all 20 kids stay at her house while she was at work. Huh? Boys and girls. I do not let Shay go anywhere if I do not know where she is at all times. I can track her by her phone and I do. The girls’ parents trust me they said they were staying here. Shay was never staying at Richards. I gave her an 11 o’clock curfew subject to a ride home. No one save me and one guy knew where thrir kidd were last night. I text Shay almost hourly when she is out of sight.
    Ugh

    it is just my opinion but I do think she should retire. She will not because she does not want Trump to be the president that appoints another Supreme. That is not a good reason. She has a duty to the American citizens that comes before her hatred of one man. She is a great woman the should have an untainted legacy. She is not at her best now.

    This was in my FB feed this morning. The lady who uploaded this to FB a really nice lady, but a good example for this post because she totally agrees with it.

    “Heartwrending. We must soldier on. The Constitution is at stake.

    ” But the modern G.O.P. as a whole is overwhelmingly fanatical, corrupt, or both. Anyone imagining that the mountainous evidence of Trump’s malfeasance will lead to a moral awakening, or that Republicans will return to democratic political norms once Trump is gone, is living in a fantasy world. Even catastrophic electoral defeat next year probably wouldn’t do much to change Republican behavior.

    The big question is whether America as we know it can long endure when one of its two major parties has effectively rejected the principles on which our nation was built.””

    • DandyTIger says:

      “norms” and “behavior”. IOW, Trump isn’t playing the elite, establishment game like politicians are supposed to. Whenever someone includes “norms”, a good response is “thank God” 🙂

    • Somebody says:

      Interesting you could apply that both ways. It seems to me that there was no reflection or soul searching on the left when they lost 2016. Quite the opposite, they lurched to the left, doubled down, proceeded to push conspiracy theories, vowed to resist, etc.

      If in fact republicans suffer major losses in 2020, would react in a similar fashion? Perhaps, but I doubt it. Look back to all the hand wringing and after action reports from years past when the republicans suffered losses. Remember post 2012? Hispanics, we must push for amnesty and open borders to win over Hispanics.

      Now ask yourself, do ever recall such after action reports following democrat losses? Think back when Newt and the contract for America, how about Gore’s loss? Kerry’s? How about 2010 midterms and the tea party wave?

      Seems to me Bloomberg for all his party switching through the years has outed himself as a true blue liberal. Pure projection reflected in his statement, so typical of a democrat.

    • Somebody says:

      I read that Schiff and Granholm both floated an idea about sort of kind of impeaching. They both said there is nothing in the constitution that says any articles of impeachment must be transmitted to the senate immediately.

      The idea floated was to pass basic sort of outlines or rough drafts and then refer them back to Schiff to investigate more. The articles would remain sort of like sealed indictments as Schiff added to them and fully developed them via more investigation. Then slow roll them out, maybe even one or two at a time, requiring multiple trials.

        And Joan, you dumbass, Conan is not a pet. All the people around her aren’t supposed to be kneeling down to pet her. I’m surprised that Pence was rubbing her head. As I mentioned before, I was once in a room full of swat team and their dogs, no way in hell would I have tried to pet them.

      Military service K-9’s have been awarded medals, have been given and hold rank and some given honors funerals.
      Sadly most posthumously.
      Police K-9’s have given their lives to save their human partner.

    Ugh
    My sister had to fill out this form about assets as part of her divorce. She has a lot of jewelry. Like enough to buy a four bedroom house. I cashed in and paid a penalty to keep her afloat. She has a boat. It has bedrooms. Plural. I want a boat.

    It sounds like Warren might be in trouble in Georgia. She’s using Ayanna Pressley to keep her safe from those who support school vouchers and want access to charter schools.

    My best friend from college put up a gofundme for a relative. Every one from our group is a screaming radical progressive. Not not not not poor people. She got three donations. They do not help out a friend???? I think i would face eternal damnation if i told the world how the former dean of childhood psychology (or whatever her title was) at Stanford used to give blow jobs to any bassist coming through Philly. She sucked stranger dick but is considered an expert on gender identity. I wonder what Flea from the Red Hot Chili Peppers thinks of her now.

    Another thing
    When my old roommate died. I read her obit they said she went to UPenn on a field hockey scholarship. Huh? Holly did not play any sport for the two years we lived together. Her brother married Chelsea Clinton. I think her parents did the same thing as the lady from Desperate Housewives.
