Poll Show's Trump's Mud-Slinging Strategy Is Working


                                        Good Day World!

One of Trump's favorite ways to deceive the public is his use of repetition.

Some pundits like to describe it as throwing mud (or shit) against a wall and seeing what sticks. This flinging strategy has been apparent since the Mueller investigation began.

What concerns me is that recent polls are showing the public is now evenly divided between calling the investigation a "witch hunt," and a legitimate effort to explain to Americans what happened in the 2016 election.

The same survey shows a nation that remains skeptical of Trump's honesty and deeply divided by his leadership.

According to the USA survey cited above, 52 percent of Americans say they have little or no trust in the president's denials that his 2016 campaign colluded with Moscow in the election that put him in the Oval Office.

This poll's findings will surely set the stage for a ferocious partisan battle when Mueller hands over his report to AG William Barr.

Trump's steady cascade of tweets and public lies show that the longer the investigation goes on, the more it's being discredited by Trump's simple strategy.

It's discouraging to see this obvious tactic gaining traction. I suspect part of the problem is people are tired of waiting for the report to come out. We're not a very patient society.

In the world of instant news, a story that drags on for nearly two years was bound to lose it's luster. 

Especially with all of the other breaking stories of Trump versus the Constitution and the conscience of America.

Time for me to walk on down the road...
