In any poll, no matter how well designed, you should expect that about 5% of respondents are just farking with you.

I "trust" Donnie Two Scoops to continue his craven Stigginit Greed Fest until 5 minutes after his heart stops.

Does that count?

See also the 538 article The Tangled Story Behind Trump's False Claims Of Voter Fraud.

There was a factual basis for his claim of millions of illegal votes, in much the same way that there is usually a kernel of truth buried in a Daily Mail story. That doesn't mean it was true. It came from a misinterpretation of data.

I trust both Comey and Trump.  I trust that they each are exactly what they have shown themselves to be.  Comey has shown a history of overactive honesty, and Trump has shown a history of lying and cheating.

You left out Trump raping his wife except that he couldn't rape his wife because New York law didn't have a law against raping your spouse.

The description of what Trump did to her is out there but I'm not going to post it.

I would like see polling with some basic comprehension questions.

1) does the sun travel around the earth?
2) was the US civil war about slavery?
3) was Moby Dick written by Mark Twain?

You are allowed one mistake.  If not, you are officially classified as an idiot.  That was results can be 80% of non-idiots...  or 20% of non-idiots believe...

Well, I think the needle may be about to shift on Comey again. A friend of his, a guy called Benjamin Wittes, has a habit of making ticking clock tweets shortly before Comey stories break in the NYT. He just posted another one.

That explains why some people seem to believe Donald Trump when he contracticts himself constantly. He has his lawyer doing it too, now. Or maybe his lawyer taught him the trick.

Trump is veing investigated says Trump. Trump is not being investigated says lawyer. Trump is being investigated says lawyer with a crackpot half-assed conspiracy explanation. I never said he was being investigated to Chris Wallace, after saying he is being investigated twice in order to blame the people who are investigating Trump for Trump's behaviour which justifiies the investigation(s).

How may investigations are there and how many non-investigations.

And are we through the looking glass into a quantum reality where things are and are not at the same time without any division between the two options?

QUANTUM.

That explains everything we don't understand.

I made the mistake of reading the comments in a CBC article about Trump admitting that the tapes claim was B.S. What Trumpers have to gain by spamming the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. I have no idea. But the latest talking points appear to me:

"You Libs are so fickle. One minute you hate Comey for taking down Clinton, now you love him for testifying against Trump. Libs can't be trusted!"
"Donald knew the whole time that there was no tape. I declare victory. Chessmate, Libs!"
"Haters! Nothingburger! Deep state!" and various other expressions of STIGGINIT!
