Well, that didn’t take long.
A couple of weeks ago, champagne corks were popping as we were duly instructed to celebrate shamelessly over Trump’s effective nomination. Republicans in disarray! Congressional rats deserting the ship! Better confirm that moderate Justice now, cuz Hillary’s gonna appoint Raul Castro soon as she gets back from the Inaugural!
And then the post-nomination national polls started coming out. Whoops!
We still consider national polls next to worthless, but they do have a value in getting folks to shut the fuck up.
