Trump on shaky ground

New revelations put Trump on shakier ground

Analysis by Maeve Reston, CNN 

Updated 4:49 AM EST, Wed November 27, 2019

(CNN)New transcripts of witness testimony and news reports revealing key details on the Ukraine scandal timeline show in vivid detail the way President Donald Trump and top officials maneuvered behind the scenes to block aid to Ukraine as the President sought an investigation into his political rival Joe Biden.

The new revelations, coming at a time when half of Americans support impeaching and removing the President even though impeachment proceedings have not moved the needle of public opinion, underscored the problem for Trump and his supporters in Congress: Public hearings in the impeachment inquiry may be in the rearview mirror, but new details about his pressure campaign on Ukraine continue to trickle out.

The developments on Tuesday illuminated the fact that there's still much to learn about the President's actions regarding Ukraine as the House races toward a potential vote on impeachment by Christmas.

Double-headed eagle with golf-clubs? Trump stands in front of altered presidential seal

WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House says it didn't know that an altered presidential seal featuring a two-headed eagle clutching golf-clubs would be displayed at a speech by President Donald Trump this week.

Spokesman Judd Deere says officials "never saw the seal" before it was projected on a screen behind Trump as he was introduced at Turning Point USA's teen summit on Tuesday. The real seal has a bald eagle clutching arrows in one set of talons and an olive branch in the other.

A spokesman for Turning Point USA told The Washington Post, which first reported on the seal, it fired a video team member for mistakenly displaying the seal.

Deere referred additional questions to Turning Point USA. The conservative group did not immediately return an emailed request for comment Thursday.

According to Yahoo News:

A historical symbol of empire and dominance, the double-headed eagle on the fake seal resembles the bird on the coat of arms of the Russian Federation, which is an adaptation of the emblem of the Russian empire under the czars. The flags of Serbia, Albania and Montenegro also feature an eagle with two heads.

Trump has a long and controversial relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin, discussed in detail in Robert Mueller’s report and the subject of much of the former special counsel’s testimony to Congress Wednesday.

WASHINGTON (Sinclair Broadcast Group) — Democratic candidate Andrew Yang's supporters are unmistakable. They celebrate nerdiness, sport blue hats and signs with the acronym MATH, a reference to Yang's campaign slogan, "Make America Think Harder" and they are the driving force behind the underdog candidate's bid for the White House.

Andrew Yang, a tech entrepreneur, student of economics and founder of the nonprofit Venture for America, has been steadily climbing to the top third of the crowded Democratic primary field. In the past nine months, the little-known candidate with virtually zero name recognition has watched his support grow from a fraction of a percent to 3%, placing him sixth in the field of 18 candidates.

Known for his sense of humor, singing skills and plans to give every America a guaranteed $1,000 basic income, Yang has transcended his status as the internet's favorite candidate to one who inspires real-life supporters to drive hours to attend an in-person rally. He has also translated his broad base of online support into over $15 million in mostly small, individual contributions since the start of his campaign.

There's something about Yang.

The more voters get to know him, the faster his favorability has grown in the polls, said Yang 2020 national press secretary S.Y. Lee. "Everywhere he goes, Andrew Yang’s vision for a new way forward in the 21st century is greeted by increasingly large crowds with matching enthusiasm that has allowed him to make all the debates, climb steadily in the polls, and outraise many establishment candidates," Lee wrote in a statement to Sinclair Broadcast Group.

According to an analysis by Business Insider, Yang is securing more loyal support than Democratic frontrunners at a faster pace. Insider also found that undecided general election voters had a more positive opinion of Andrew Yang than former Vice President Joe Biden, with 46% saying they would be satisfied with Yang as the Democratic nominee.

Yet, it would be difficult to tell that Yang is gaining momentum based on the coverage he has gotten in the Democratic debates. In the first Democratic debate in June, Yang got three minutes to speak in the Atlanta debate last week, he spoke for 6 minutes, 48 seconds the least amount of any candidate. The limited coverage of Yang didn't seem to match the polling data or the intensity of his grassroots support.

Was asked to appear on @msnbc this weekend - and told them that I’d be happy to after they apologize on-air, discuss and include our campaign consistent with our polling, and allow surrogates from our campaign as they do other candidates’. They think we need them. We don’t.

@AndrewYang


They’ve omitted me from their graphics 12+ times, called me John Yang on air, and given me a fraction of the speaking time over 2 debates despite my polling higher than other candidates on stage. At some point you have to call it.

"At some point you have to call it," Yang tweeted, directly attacking MSNBC for giving him short shrift at the debate and not including him in campaign graphics. "They’ve omitted me from their graphics 12+ times, called me John Yang on air, and given me a fraction of the speaking time over 2 debates despite my polling higher than other candidates on stage." 

Other news outlets have similarly omitted Yang from their coverage or passed over the candidate to report on others that were faring worse in national polls and raising less money. Yang supporters have insisted, with evidence, that their candidate is the victim of a media blackout.

Kendall Scudder, a Democratic strategist and host of the Pod Bless Texas podcast, explained that the limited coverage of Yang is not an attempt to marginalize the candidate. Rather, it's a reflection of the hard truths of how the Democratic primary game is played. 

"It's not necessarily about looking at polling percentages, it's about looking at your delegate collections," Scudder said. "I think if he wants to be taken seriously he's going to have to start focusing on ways to accumulate enough delegated so when we head into a convention he'll be able to have some clout."

The Democratic National Committee reformed the delegate-allocation process in 2018, stripping superdelegates of much of their influence. However, securing delegates will still be essential in the next election, perhaps even more so given the size of the Democratic field and projections that the party may not select their nominee during the primary process, which would mean a brokered convention in Milwaukee.

Yang's supporters' enthusiasm is impressive, Scudder noted, "But that's not what gets you the nomination, the delegates do."

That was the tough lesson Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders' supporters learned in 2016. Ultimately, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had a strategy for accumulating delegates and superdelegates, which beat Sanders' energized groundswell of support. It's unclear whether Yang's devoted supporters would begrudge the party and its nominee if they felt their candidate was treated unfairly, as Sanders' supporters did. Polls suggest Democratic voters will unite behind whatever candidate they believe can beat President Donald Trump.

HOW AN UNDERDOG BECOMES AN ALPHA

Among a crowded field of career politicians, senators, governors and billionaires, Yang has proudly staked his claim as an outsider. He has never been formally associated with a political party, though former President Barack Obama did give him the Champion of Change award in 2012 and later appointed him to be a Presidential Ambassador for Global Entrepreneurship. That has let him develop his own brand and his own message that is often critical of official Washington, establishment politics, the media and party orthodoxy.

Other candidates with greater name recognition have fallen by the wayside in this election season but Yang has demonstrated unique staying power. During a campaign conversation with Sinclair's chief political correspondent Scott Thuman, Yang said he was "pleased but not surprised" that he is still in the race. "I mean, you don't run for president if you don't expect to do well," Yang said. 

Just staying in the game as long as possible could be a winning strategy for an underdog like Yang, said B.J. Rudell the associate director of Duke University's Center for Political Leadership, Innovation and Service. "If you're an outsider, it's unrealistic to win but it is realistic to linger," Rudell said. 

Current trends suggest that there will probably be a different winner in Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina. "If there's no clear winner in February, that's when other candidates start to look more interesting," Rudell said. "If the timing is right, that's where Yang could take off."

"That's all you're hoping for if you're Andrew Yang, that you stick with this long enough where suddenly it's incumbent on the media and it's incumbent on voters to get to know you better because now you're a more serious candidate," he continued.

Yang has hinted that slow and steady is the way he thinks he could win the race. At an early November campaign event in Des Moines called Yangapalooza, the candidate posed a math question to supporters. He asked how many Iowans it would take for him to finish in the top tier in the state. With voter turnout at the caucuses projected to be 250,000, supporters shouted out 40,000, a number that Yang repeated, saying that would guarantee he finished in fourth place, at least. "The news anchors will not be able to avoid it then," Yang said.

Primaries can change dramatically after the early states. Heading into Iowa in 2004, virtually every state appeared ready to back former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean, until he placed third in the caucuses and voters began to look at other candidates and eventually chose then-Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry.

Finishing in the top five spots in the early primary states will determine whether Yang can stay in the race longterm and essentially make or break his campaign. "If you're running a race, you're not worried about everyone passing you, you're only worried about how far behind you are from the leader. If the leader gets too far ahead, Yang doesn't have a chance." 

On the campaign trail, Yang continues to project optimism. At a rally in South Carolina, where he is trailing Biden by more than 30 points, Yang told supporters that his campaign is "one of the growth stories" of the 2020 race. Suggesting the race is far from over, he described the status of the top tier of candidates as "very fluid." 

Even with limited support and media exposure, the Yang campaign's influence can be seen in polling data in support of a universal basic income, the candidate's signature issue. Between February and September, voter support for universal basic income increased from 43% to 49%, according to a Hill-HarrisX poll. States like Maine began researching the possibility of providing a guaranteed income to residents. Critics have questioned the feasibility of the program which would cost roughly $3 trillion annually. Yang's plans to offset the costs appear to fall short.

The tech entrepreneur is also trying to force a national discussion on the effects of automation on the workforce and "rewrite the rules of the 21st century economy." Yang is advocating publicly funded elections, legalizing marijuana, nine months of employer-paid family leave, making data ownership a property right and combating climate change and other threats through research. Yang has declared his support "human-centered capitalism" in contrast to some of his opponents' embrace of democratic socialism.
