A new poll from YouGov released Wednesday found a majority of Republicans think the FBI is working to frame President Donald Trump amid the ongoing investigation into his connections with Russia.

YouGov asked U.S. adults: “Do you believe Donald Trump is being framed by the FBI and the Department of Justice?”

Sixty-one percent of Republicans responded with “Yes, he is being framed.” Just 17 percent said he was not being framed while 21 percent were not sure. Overall, 29 percent of Americans thought that the FBI and Justice Department were working to frame the president. A plurality of 45 percent thought Trump was not being framed while 26 percent were not sure. Perhaps predictably, not many Democrats—just 7 percent—thought the FBI was framing Trump while 78 percent responded no, according to YouGov. Twenty-five percent of independents thought Trump was being framed while 39 percent thought he was not.

Try to see things from the point of view of the Republicans they say.

Keep an open mind, they tell me. 

Fuck that! 

There is simply no way to have a positive interaction with people this self-delusional.

    I take these polls with a grain of salt since they can manipulate them depending on the questions.

    Who is YouGov?

    Boo hoo hoo, cry me a river, like we didn’t try to warn them.
    Well I guess they will just have to “enjoy” the big tax break they are getting, wait a minute, they are going bankrupt, so no tax break on nothing!!!!
    Maybe those unemployed coal miners want to trim trees and plant bushes, you know work for their unemployment and welfare checks, if they can pass the drug test for opioids.

    What about the rest of us that have to endure trump and didn’t vote for him.

    ‘I feel so stupid’: Trump supporters ‘tricked by the devil’ now facing financial ruin

    Small business owners who supported Donald Trump are complaining about troubles hiring foreign seasonal labor the Lexington Herald-Leader reports.
    The newspaper interviewed multiple landscaping business owners who claim they are unable to hire Americans for the same wages.

    Eddie Devine voted for Trump, but worries he may go out of business if he is unable to continue hiring 20 foreign workers a season though the H-2B visa program.
    “I feel like I’ve been tricked by the devil,” Devine admitted. “I feel so stupid.”

    Devin says Trump’s policies are more about race than economics, noting that Trump properties in New York and Florida rely upon the H-2B visa program for 144 jobs a year.
    “I think there’s a war on brown people,” he argued. “I want to know why it’s OK for him to get his workers, but supporters like me don’t get theirs.”

    “We live and die by these visas,” said Ken Monin, owner of Monin Construction. “Last year we about went bankrupt. The workers we were supposed to get in March didn’t show up until August because they couldn’t get visas.”
    “Americans don’t want most of these jobs,” Monin claimed.

      ” the administration has made clear the specific promise to have Medicare negotiate for lower prices will be abandoned.”
      “One of the largest donors to Trump’s re-election campaign is CVS Health Corp, which has a financial interest in keeping the government away from drug price negotiations. Health companies spent millions to contribute to Trump’s inauguration committee.”
      ‘“You go see this, lobbyists, almost guarantee they produce, with me, won’t happen folks,” Trump told voters in Lacrosse, Wisconsin in April 2016. “With me, pharmaceuticals, you know there’s a bad bidding process on pharmaceuticals. There’s a bad bidding process for everything.”’

      The only truth trump has told was election was rigged and he should know.

      Interesting because didn’t the “results” of all those states come in around the same time,i seem to recall they were called for trump one after another.

      Maybe Mueller should check donnie’s cell phone records for calls to russians around the same time with the message mission accomplished.

    Talk about in your face racism!

    There’s No Good Excuse For The Racist Impact Of Michigan’s Medicaid Proposal

    …Under the bill, Medicaid recipients in 17 mostly white counties, all represented by Republican senators, would be exempt from the work requirements, according to an analysis by the Center for Michigan, a think tank. But Medicaid recipients in the six municipalities with the highest unemployment rates, including Detroit and Flint, would have to work at least 29 hours a week to keep their health benefits. All six cities have black majorities or significant numbers of black residents.

    The disparity stems from a provision in the bill that would lift the work requirements in counties with unemployment rates of over 8.5 percent — but not from cities with similar joblessness rates. Since most urban counties in Michigan contain both high-unemployment cities and their richer suburbs, Michigan’s biggest cities would be subject to the work requirements.

    Gathering Of Military Spouses Puts The ‘White’ In White House

    Twitter users have been poring over photos of a recent White House event honoring military spouses and moms, wondering why there appeared to be no male spouses and few people of color.

    Wednesday’s gathering was held as President Donald Trump signed an executive order aimed at expanding government job opportunities for military spouses.

    Photos from the event, and one posted on Ivanka Trump’s Twitter page featuring a “listening session” with military spouses last year, show an audience overwhelmingly dominated by white women. The first daughter also posted a photo showing members of the Air Force Officers’ Spouses’ Club at an April luncheon where she spoke. Those spouses, too, were overwhelmingly white and female.

    Racial and ethnic minority groups made up 40 percent of Defense Department active-duty military members in 2015, up from 25 percent in 1990, according to the Pew Research Center.

    The military is diverse, but you wouldn’t know it from this White House event honoring service moms and spouses.

    ‘You’re wringing your own neck’: Writer shuts down Trump apologist’s unhinged blather about president’s ‘innocence’

    …“I think you’re wringing your own neck here, Carrie, I don’t need to say very much,” Alter observed. “But you’re not in any position to make a judgment about when this investigation has run its course, nor is Donald Trump, Mike Pence or anybody else.”

    I am sent the YouGov polls, I participate, sometimes not honestly, just give some type of answer, I doubt this poll is very accurate, it is more like a game I play.

      Working awfully hard to discredit this poll.

    God, they are such fucking victims.

    Despite the fact that Republican politicians are in charge of Congress and the White House while a conservative-leaning majority reigns in the Supreme Court, conservatives are nevertheless convinced that “the Left” is using political correctness to quash their ideas.

    This pattern of thought is nowhere more evident than in the writings of National Review writer David French, who Friday published a story defending a recent article — written by the New York Times’ Bari Weiss — about the “Intellectual Dark Web.”

    Rightwingers have turned on the Boy Scouts and the Girl Scouts — and here is why they are so enraged

    …While many families interested in scouting welcomed the idea, the announcement caused a complete meltdown in some corners of conservative America, especially the religious right. This is not a huge surprise.

    “Will Gender Inclusive Boy Scouts Sell Cookies?” screamed a headline from Fox News radio personality Todd Starnes, who added, “So don’t be surprised if you see the Boy Scouts marching in the next Nasty Woman protest — wearing pink neckerchiefs and matching knit p**** hats.”

    “How is it not cultural appropriation for women to say, by the way, we’re now going into Boy Scouts?” asked right-wing pundit Steven Crowder, in what he no doubt believed was a successful “gotcha.” “That’s a part of male culture and you’re appropriating it.”
