‘Surprise conclusion’: Trump overtakes Biden in popular support among U.S. voters, poll finds

https://www.msn.com/en-ca/news/newspolitics/surprise-conclusion-trump-overtakes-biden-in-popular-support-among-us-voters-poll-finds/ar-AAOMP2o?li=AAggNb9

Former U.S. president Donald Trump has overtaken his successor, Joe Biden, in popular support, a new poll reveals.

Fifty-one percent of 1,578 registered U.S. voters considered Trump to be the better leader, while 49 per cent prefer Biden, according to the Harvard CAPS-Harris Poll online survey taken between Sept. 15 and 16.

The poll could indicate that multiple crises, including a COVID resurgence and the chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan, have marked a shift in voter’s perception of Biden.

“The mounting issues on all fronts have led to the surprise conclusion that Trump is now seen as good a president as Biden, suggesting the honeymoon is being replaced now with buyer’s remorse,” said Mark Penn, co-director of the Harvard CAPS-Harris Poll survey.

Inside the CIA's secret war plans against WikiLeaks

Quote:
Some senior officials inside the CIA and the Trump administration even discussed killing Assange, going so far as to request “sketches” or “options” for how to assassinate him. Discussions over kidnapping or killing Assange occurred “at the highest levels” of the Trump administration, said a former senior counterintelligence official. “There seemed to be no boundaries.”

White House officials briefed Trump and warned him that the matter could provoke an international incident — or worse. “We told him, this is going to get ugly,” said the former official.

As the debate over WikiLeaks intensified, some in the White House worried that the campaign against the organization would end up “weakening America,” as one Trump national security official put it, by lowering barriers that prevent the government from targeting mainstream journalists and news organizations, said former officials.

"What, you can't kill him, he's one of us!"

Where the only category that us applies to is jornos.

Would the Khasoggi thing have gotten any press if not for the jorno connection?

Reporters believe themselves some special protected class. There's no reason for that to be so.

Assange shouldn't be murdered because he's a noncombatant and he hasn't had his day in court.

Him being a jorno is line item 1000 of 1000 reasons not to murder him.

Riiiight... But do you think it's somehow misguided for journalists to have perceived an existential 1A threat from the Trump White House, and to report on a story that illustrates that threat?

They are empowered to promote their self interest in the public sphere more than most.

Existential threat? Hope you didn't lose your smelling salts.

Here's the weasel phrase:

Yahoo News wrote:
The conversations were part of an unprecedented CIA campaign directed against WikiLeaks


Did they never plan to kidnap or kill him before? Is that what is unprecedented? What exactly was unprecedented? They don't say, and probably for a reason.

Have you located any categorical denial that the Obama admin (probably had more reason to do so) ever made plans to kill or capture Assange?
