GOP и Путин

Любопытная заметка об изменении отношения республиканцев к Путину. Если в июле 2014 года рейтинг ("одобряют" минус "не одобряют") Путина среди республиканцев был -66%, а среди демократов -54%, то в декабре 2016 он среди республиканцев -10%, а среди демократов -62%. Рейтинг Путина среди республиканцев существенно выше рейтинга Хиллари Клинтон (-77%) и Барака Обамы (-64%). С другой стороны, рейтинг Трампа среди демократов -65%.

Если так будет продолжаться дальше, то к своему второму сроку Трамп сможет под аплодисменты GOP назначить госсекретарем Сергея Лаврова, который будет уже официально работать на две ставки: в МИДе РФ и Госдепе США.

Похоже, что автор этой заметки, как и 98.7% тех, кто поминает высказывание Клинтон о "deplorables" сам с текстом этого высказывания не знаком.

Вы, очевидно, тоже совершенно не в курсе, о чем там говорила Клинтон - иначе бы вы не стали приводить эту цитату.

Специально для вас:

"I know there are only 60 days left to make our case -- and don't get complacent, don't see the latest outrageous, offensive, inappropriate comment and think, well, he's done this time. We are living in a volatile political environment. You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump's supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right? The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic -- you name it. And unfortunately there are people like that. And he has lifted them up. He has given voice to their websites that used to only have 11,000 people -- now 11 million. He tweets and retweets their offensive hateful mean-spirited rhetoric. Now, some of those folks -- they are irredeemable, but thankfully they are not America.

But the other basket -- and I know this because I see friends from all over America here -- I see friends from Florida and Georgia and South Carolina and Texas -- as well as, you know, New York and California -- but that other basket of people are people who feel that the government has let them down, the economy has let them down, nobody cares about them, nobody worries about what happens to their lives and their futures, and they're just desperate for change. It doesn't really even matter where it comes from. They don't buy everything he says, but he seems to hold out some hope that their lives will be different. They won't wake up and see their jobs disappear, lose a kid to heroin, feel like they're in a dead-end. Those are people we have to understand and empathize with as well."
