The left has a problem.
The echo chamber and message discipline has never been this coordinated outside the USSR. The enlistment of elements of the Obama police state on the surveillance and prosecution side, not to mention the able assistance of the judiciary, has been unprecedented.
We’ve seen abuses like these locally in Wisconsin and Texas, but never nationally.
There’s just one problem. All that adds up to is a bunch of scandals that no one outside the left cares about.
After a week that saw President Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman convicted on eight counts of fraud and his former lawyer plead guilty to felony campaign finance charges, the president’s job approval rating remains virtually unchanged, new polling from NBC News and The Wall Street Journal shows.
The polls show that many people have generally accepted the media’s version of events. It just doesn’t really move the dial because no one really cares. The entire Russia story is a bizarre conspiracy theory that no one outside the bubble really believes or cares about.
The media’s ten thousand Mueller pieces to most people come off like their cousin who can’t stop explaining to them that fire can’t melt steel.
Conspiracy theories are deeply compelling to conspiracy theorists. Deeply offensive to their opponents. But boring to most other people.
And then there’s Stormy Daniels. No one cares. And if the economy stays solid, no one is going to support impeaching the President of the United States over something no one is shocked by or cares very much about. The Democrats are about to go where Republicans have gone before.
Trump’s approval ratings reflect general public perceptions of the economy. Every hysterical media story has had a very little impact, whether it’s border kiddies or the Russia conspiracy theories.
How do you bring down a president with a scandal no one cares about?
