CNN does not tell stories that can help Trump. Not if they can help it, anyway.
But polls can have a funny way of getting away from you. Of surprising you, even. And that is just what this poll did for CNN.
The first number they reported was pretty much what you’d expect of a president who’s received a ritual beating on the news every night.
And none of those ritual beatings has been more myopic than the one by a network that interviewed the lawyer representing the opposite side of a court case fully 59 times in two months. That network, of course, would be CNN.
But the numbers that followed? They must have been about as welcome as a dead skunk in that newsroom.

Their poll asked the very innocuous question: “How is America Doing Today”?
What could possibly go wrong?
Well, first off, they thought America was doing VERY well today, thank-you very much. Fifty-seven percent of the public answered “well”. Only 40 percent said “poorly”. That’s only 3% undecided.
So even though Americans may not approve of the President himself, they think the country is in good shape.
But let’s look a little closer at those numbers. When was the last time they stood at 57%? It was way back in 2007.
Not only is the public saying they are very optimistic about how America is doing, but it’s a little more than one year into his Presidency and our national optimism is higher than it was at any point in the Obama presidency.
It seems that Trump’s optimism is contagious.
We haven’t been this happy with how America was doing since the LAST time we had the Left calling a Republican President ‘Literally Hitler’. Maybe the Media(D) is missing something?
While they think about what that might be, maybe they can look up what Trump’s Campaign slogan was.
Does this qualify as a ‘promise kept’?
Does your grandpa go off on paltry politicians, whether they be Democrats or Republicans? Does he get misty eyed when he talks about God and Country and America’s future? And have you ever heard him scream, ‘Awww … Hell no!’ when Rosie O’Donnell starts yapping on television? If you answered yes to one, or all of the above, then your gramps will love Doug Giles’ latest book, My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass.
Don’t be fooled by the title — this ain’t just for Grandpa.
The Snowflake Generation — and the rest of America — needs a good ol’ dose of ‘Grandpa wisdom’.
Especially if that Grandpa is Doug Giles.
You’ll love My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass just as much as Grandpa will.
What Jim Acosta, Rachel Maddow and the Rest of The Media (D) STILL haven’t figured out yet is why we call them ‘Fake News’.
Let’s spell it out for them. In a shirt.
Because you know they won’t be able to figure it out on their own.
There’s a ladies’ version…
And a men’s version…
The problem isn’t just the lies they tell…
It’s the truth they DON’T tell…
And the opinions laced right through them.
And the best part? This shirt is made in the USA, printed in the USA, on an American-Made t-shirt press!
