Today I’m joined by Wine expert and ex Columbia university communications head Doug Levy and by part-time Buddhist and Bernie Sanders forward planner Reggie Hubbard.
In a week in which President Donald Trump’s poll numbers and approval ratings stabilize and move up slightly over the past month, we ask is Trump and his breaking of political norms, the new normal.
Following a low of 39 percent in the POLITICO/Morning Consult poll last month after his controversial reaction to the violent protests in Charlottesville, Virginia, Trump is back at 43 percent in this week’s survey. Other surveys show similar results: Trump bottomed out at 35 percent in Gallup’s weekly tracking poll in late August, but ticked up to 38 percent last week. Trump is at 40 percent in the RealClearPolitics average, up about 2.5 points from his low-water mark last month.
