WAPO Trump and his base live in a bubble where heís popular and all is well

Trump and his base live in a bubble where heís popular and all is well


If you ask most Americans, President Trumpís use of Twitter is frowned upon. Two-thirds of Americans disapprove of Trumpís tweeting, with more than half saying that they disapprove strongly.

One might be inclined to suggest that itís everyone else who constitutes the bubble. Such a person is welcome to make that case, certainly, but there are two reasons that the term doesnít apply as readily to the yellow slices of the pie. For one thing, they vary more in size and constitution. For another, they are the majority. Perhaps you, the rest of the world, are in the bubble that naively doesnít think that the New York Mets are the best team in baseball (or who couldnít care less). Or perhaps itís Mets fans.

We saw something similar during the campaign. No matter what Trump did, his core base of support stuck with him. Some part or all of that core base of support sticks with him still. While most Americans disapprove of Trumpís job performance, see him as unpresidential and think heís performing worse than past presidents, this quarter of the public disagrees.

Thereís one good reason for that: Trumpís messaging and priorities all seem to target that group. Thatís the bubble: Trumpís tweets about the biased media and inaccurate polls may not reflect reality, but they reinforce a message that bounces around within that base. Trumpís policy priorities may not be shared by most Americans, but they are shared by that core base of support.

Take the Republican health-care bills, for example. Most Americans prefer Obamacare to the Republican proposals. But a minority prefer the Republican replacement proposals ó 24 percent, to be exact.

These quarters of the electorate are not all the same people, mind you. There are people who support the Republican health-care bills but who think Trumpís Twitter use is inappropriate (like the speaker of the House). The precise size of that central kernel of Trump support ó made up largely of Republicans, white men without college degrees and evangelicals ó isnít really clear.

This poll gives a sense of its scale. About a quarter of the American people think that Trumpís tweeting is just fine and that he is on pace to be a historically great president.

Why the split? In part, certainly, thanks to the divide noted by The Postís Carl Bernstein on CNN on Sunday. There are different media environments that cater to those inside and outside that space. If you support Trump and believe that heís being effective, you can immerse yourself in a world where voices critical of that belief are sidelined or muted. And if you dislike Trump and think heís failing, you can do the same.

Itís hard to predict what the result of this divide will be on American politics. One interesting side effect is already obvious: Republicans on Capitol Hill are reticent to criticize Trump, in part because his bubble of support overlaps with their primary election voters. It seems to bode poorly for Trump in 2020, except that he still has 3Ĺ years to turn it around ó and except that having only a kernel of fervent support didnít keep him from winning in 2016.

For now, though, the effect is clear. There is a group of Americans who seem distinctly unlikely to ever change their minds about how Trump is doing. And Trump has dived deep into that pool, and is swimming in it gleefully.

Another opinion piece to Brownshirt the "deplorables" because they won't change their minds. That ain't gonna happen with the non stop abuse and attacks, it's only going to make his base defend him and support him even more, as it convinces them, they're right about the scummy corrupt Establishment. Ya' know like the Washington Compost.


There's a reason only a small minority trust the Lying Scum Media today. The only people who trust them are anti-Trumpers.

Trumps base trust the biggest lying media of them.

So that's a bullshit statement

Fox news might as well be State news at this point



This music should be playing in the Background after every Fox news show.

Can you give us a list of all of the "fake news" sites? It's getting hard to keep up.

Is there any media site other than Breitbart and Fox that ISN'T fake news to you?

Let's just start with some big names.

Are you denying that WaPo's been caught with bullshit stories multiple times?
Are you denying that CNN's been caught with bullshit stories multiple times?
Are you denying that NYT's been caught with bullshit stories multiple times?
Are you denying that ABC's been caught with bullshit stories multiple times?

Every news source has its BS factor. If someone cannot admit that-they are very, very stupid.

I think the NYT and WAPO just makes crap up to sell papers because the newspaper industry is that desperate for readers. These are the same followers that thought Stephen Colber was real news when he was on Comedy Central.

Pretty critical article on Obama and his policies on whistleblowers.

There is no Free thought at all from Right wing media.
