Kirsten Powers: CNN Poll Favoring Trump Doesn’t Deserve Second Term Is Still Dependent on Issues Like Socialism

‘It will depend a lot on who the Democrats choose; it will depend on how the Republicans define that person’

RUSH EXCERPT:

POWERS: “Right. I mean I think that’s probably the most important point is that elections are — it’s a zero sum game. It’s between two people. So it’s not just about how you feel about the incumbent. It’s also about how you feel about the person who’s running against him. So it will depend a lot on who the Democrats choose. It will depend on how the Republicans define that person. If they are able to, for example, define that person as being a socialist, you know, how does that play with voters? And so that changes the dynamic. That said, you know, as David said, these are not numbers that the White House is excited about. There’s no way they can be quite excited about this. You look at this poll, and Trump has done absolutely nothing to change the opinion of people in a positive direction from the day he came into office. The trajectory is not good. And, you know, he has obviously doubled down on this base strategy, but independents matter, and you look at this poll, and you can see that he’s not moving them into his camp.”
