Trump’s Web

In other news, a new Monmouth University poll puts Trump's approval rating at 32 percent, a new record low in their polling. Just 14 percent of independent women approve of Trump.

Meanwhile, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled in favor of an Obama-era ban on uranium mining in the Grand Canyon, at least until the Trump regime eliminates the ban.

Finally, Politico has the story on the DNC's stealth campaign to elect Doug Jones in a state that mostly hates the DNC.

Despite publicly remaining mum on the race, the Democratic National Committee spent nearly $1 million on the contest while dispatching and funding 30 aides here, a party official told POLITICO. That push came just as Jones sought to distance himself from the national party and win over conservatives.

It was a politically delicate move. Jones’ detractors have tried painting him as a tool of the national party, so Democrats in Washington have tried treading carefully in order to avoid leaving too much of a footprint in a state where Democrats haven’t won a Senate seat in over two decades. The effort paid off: Jones prevailed Tuesday.

Spending money on a ground operation rather than TV ads seems like a good idea even if you aren't trying to hide your involvement. The fact is fewer and fewer people watch TV and, among those who do, who wants to see that shit?

Programming note... I will be offline tomorrow. I'm headed out of town with my brother to eat pizza, drink, and see The Last Jedi.

    I think the ground game is a much better place to spend the money than on TV. We have shown time and again that when Democrats come out to vote, we win. So, let’s spend the money on getting our voters to the polls!
