Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America applaud Politifact for not trying to explain away the birth control smear Sen. Kamala Harris aimed at Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and giving Harris “four Pinocchios.” They also cringe as a new batch of polls show President Trump’s approval taking a hit in recent weeks, because that may mean bad news in November for Republicans in competitive races. And they pause to remember the anguish of the terrorist attacks that happened on this date in 2001 and the resolve we still need to confront today’s threats.

     It seems likely that approval polls will consistently underestimate Donald Trump‘s true level of support.

     Faced with the prospect of verbal abuse or even physical violence, I suspect many supporters will stay in the closet.

     This is one of the reasons the polls in advance of the election turned out to be wrong.

    Another ad for Planned Parenthood before the podcast. Would you allow an ad for the KKK before a Ricochet/National Review podcast? PP has arguably has led to many more deaths.

    I too have heard PP ads at the end of TML before. I hate it-it’s like we’re being deliberately trolled.
