so how bout that new rasmussen poll, amirite?

http://elections.huffingtonpost.com/...asmussen-27168

this is actually prob the poll that matters most. they tend to oversample conservatives and *i think* it's a likely voters poll, and not general pop. its also down from 54% approve a couple weeks ago, to 50/50 now. the other polling that shows anywhere from low 30s to mid 40s is usually just "adults."

More realistically, Iran and/or N. Korea. He needs an army to launch the war that will allow him to win re-election.

without a breakdown by party affiliation, unsure if drop in numbers among likely voters is due to galvanization of Democrats/Independents to vote, or drop in support among Republicans.

actually, i'm almost certain it's the former, but i would need party breakdown to prove it.

Trump administration rolled out revised immigration EO.

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/03/06/u...tion-text.html

They removed the religious language and added more language supporting the national security rationale directly to the text of the order.

With the most challenging provisions removed, pretty sure this one will hold up in court, at least based on its own merit.

There might be some backlash from a more liberal court concerning the reputation of its predecessor, but challenging this one would certainly represent a significant encroachment of judicial power over the executive.

Busy day today.

House Republicans formally introduced the bill to repeal/replace ACA.

Looks fundamentally similar to the existing conservative plans proposed by Ryan and others, like tax credits, block grants for Medicare, (and state sponsored insurance pools, although this part wasn't covered in the press release). No mention of the grandfathered insurance plans either, which were one of the chief reasons for the rising premiums that doomed ACA. Interesting is the exception of insurers allowed to charge more for people who let their insurance lapse.

No earthly clue on to what this coverage clause actually accomplishes since it doesn't seem to address the fundamental problem for those who can't afford insurance coverage, but rather punishes them further to the benefit of the insurance companies. Presumably the idea is that this clause serves as the replacement for the individual mandate punishment and will be used to offset costs, but it's fundamentally weaker and actively discourages enrollment, which is actually counter-intuitive to keeping cost down.

I'd expect this lapsed coverage clause to be the major point of contention going forward.

Second travel ban blocked based in part on historical context of law. Seems administration shot itself in foot with sloppy roll-out of initial EO.

Likely, this new challenge will last past the 90 days investigation period dictated by the initial EO, at which point that talking point starts to become a detrimental factor as well.

Great and quick article on hopes and expectations for Comeys Monday speech

Finally, we'll hear from Comey about Russia - CNN
