Brutal new poll (for Trump and GOP) re: the wall and shutdown

https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/americans-blame-trump-and-gop-much-more-than-democrats-for-shutdown-post-abc-poll-finds/2019/01/12/9c89aff2-16a9-11e9-90a8-136fa44b80ba_story.html

By a wide margin, more Americans blame President Trump and Republicans in Congress than congressional Democrats for the now record-breaking government shutdown, and most reject the presidentís assertion that there is an illegal-immigration crisis on the southern border, according to a Washington Post-ABC News poll.


Concerning the allocation of blame, 53 percent say Trump and the Republicans are mainly at fault, and 29 percent blame the Democrats in Congress. Thirteen percent say both sides bear equal responsibility for the shutdown. That is identical to the end of the 16-day shutdown in 2013, when 29 percent blamed then-President Barack Obama and 53 percent put the responsibility on congressional Republicans.

A predictable partisan divide shapes the blame game, with 85 percent of Democrats citing Trump and Republicans as the cause and 68 percent of Republicans pointing the finger at congressional Democrats. Independents fix the blame squarely on the president and his party rather than on the Democrats, by 53 percent to 23 percent. Women blame Trump and Republicans by a margin of 35 points, and men blame the president and the GOP by 13 points.


That independents figure should have the GOP shitting in their pants. Brutal.

Why is he so fixated on the 5 billion dollar figure?

The entire wall will cost hundreds of billions, if not trillions of dollars. Why is he so fixated on 5 billion dollars? He even lists 5 billion dollars in the position paper he sent out to the media during his campaign ("one time payment of 5 billion dollars" ). I guess the real question is, who does he owe 5 billion dollars? Because I guarantee the money will be laundered through some shady construction company that he has ties to.

The Daily Caller (Tucker Carlson's rag) posts a fake AOC nude selfie

They have since deleted the tweet, but here's a screen shot:

And here's AOC response:

I can't believe how many heads she's living in rent free. She is driving people absolutely bonkers!
