Common Sense as a Question...
There is one thing missing in all coverage of the Trump Collusion investigation, and that is the pervasive idea that Putin would have preferred Trump over Hillary, or that he just wanted to sow general discord.

Anyone with a working brain knows you don't switch horses in midstream when you are going in the direction you want to go. The Russian position was the Obama/Hillary reset button. It was getting 20% of the USA uranium. It was living with the continuance of rule from someone who ridiculed Mitt Romney for fearing Russia at all. No one would want an unknown to come in and rock the boat. Putin knew that Hillary was buyable. Offer her money and she would sell out anything. She was also imminently blackmailable. She had dirty laundry that could make her favorable relationship with Putin even easier to control. There was zero upside with roiling the waters or letting an unknown win.

Why has no one in the media, including Fox News, put forward this basic common sense awareness?
And then there is the idea that, since virtually everybody just knew that Hillary was going to win, it made no sense that the Russians would be bothered with trying to get information on that loser Trump.

It is, just as you say, simple common sense.
I know you think you understand what you thought I said,
but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant!
This could have some Bad Implications for the idea that there will be a Blue Wall this November.

Quote:Pollster Who Predicted Trump’s Election Has Bad News For Democrats

Just about everyone in the mainstream media predicted that Hillary Clinton would easily win the 2016 presidential election over Donald Trump. Only a select few media pollsters and “experts” were able to see the silent majorities rising across the country for Trump — and one of them was Anthony Salvanto.

Salvanto, who serves as CBS News’ director of elections and surveys, accurately predicted that Trump would win the 2016 election — and he’s got bad news for Democrats hoping to retake the House of Representatives in November’s midterm election.

During an interview with the New York Post, Salvanto said he’s identified a major trend that Democrats will not like: The “blue wave” they are promising is increasingly looking less and less likely. In other words, he’s predicting Republicans will keep their majorities in both the House and Senate.

Salvanto told the Post that he has been focusing on trends rather than random surveys generated by media websites after a big event takes place. He explained that doing so allows him to focus on patterns, and what issues are either maintaining momentum or losing interest among large groups of demographically diverse people over a longer period of time.

Here’s what the Post reported:

Quote:For 2018, the CBS News Battleground Tracker has gathered a panel of nearly 5,700 registered voters. Almost all of them live in the 50 to 60 districts that might switch from Republican to Democrat, or vice versa, in November — the only races that matter, when it comes to control of Congress. Salvanto’s polling currently indicates that few House seats will change hands in November — and that the GOP could very well hold its majority in the House.

Of the nation’s 435 House districts, fully 85 percent will almost certainly stick with its current party affiliation come November, Salvanto projects.

Salvanto told the Post that the GOP will more than likely fend off the “blue wave” and keep their majorities in both the House and Senate.

Quote:“Right now I think this election looks like a toss-up. We see a Democrat pickup in the House of Representatives in the 20-odd seat range, but Republicans could certainly hold on to the House. Even though Republicans have not fared well in special elections so far this cycle, it does look like they will be turning out for the midterms. So far we do not see a large number of Republicans saying they will flip and vote for a Democrat.”

Salvanto said Democrats biggest problem is that they have nothing to run on aside from obstructing President Donald Trump. Salvanto’s horrible news for Democrats comes as the economy is booming under Trump.

The GOP tax cuts have played a big role in the millions of new jobs created, the stock market roaring, unemployment dropping to historic lows, and giving the president leverage to negotiate with other nations to solve many of America’s trade imbalances.

The tax cuts have also been very popular and helpful to American families across the country. Numerous studies have shown that roughly 90 percent of Americans will see an increase in their paychecks this year. The markets are at all-time highs, more than 6.6 million jobs have been created, and the U.S. in on pace to hit 3 percent GDP growth for the entire year for the first time in decades.

All of that coupled with Democrats being nothing but obstructionists is why the GOP will keep their majorities.
