In every poll, May’s lead has shrunk dramatically. The latest projection by YouGov predicts that she will take 304 of 650 seats, 22 short of a majority and 26 less than the majority she enjoyed before the election. While British electoral projections should always be treated with caution (the system is notorious for dividing seats disproportionately to the vote) the transformation has been enormous.

May cannot take sole responsibility for this collapse, however. Corbyn has delivered an inspiring and surprisingly coordinated campaign. Against May, he looks comfortable in his own skin and genuinely believes the policies of his party. The public has responded favorably, and for a fleeting moment the left has been allowed to dream—its own kind of victory.

"not even people" The Impartiality rules of the UK broadcast media

Impartiality
 
Section three of the Programme Code contains very detailed guidance on the requirements of impartiality in broadcasting, particularly in relation to news and current affairs programming. Specifically, impartiality rules must be observed when dealing with matters of political or industrial controversy, or relating to public policy, politics or the affairs of government. The Code seeks to ensure that broadcasters present information accurately and do not use
 
 
their power unreasonably to influence public opinion or to favour one viewpoint over another when screening programmes dealing with any of these matters. 
 
Care should be taken to ensure that factual reporting is as accurate as possible in all the circumstances. Broadcasters themselves must never “editorialise” and should not use programmes to put forward their own views on issues. Broadcasters must, in addition, always be careful to distinguish factual reporting, or documentary programmes, from the presentation of opinions.
 
The requirement of neutrality does not mean that every single programme must be strictly neutral but rather that the overall programming of a given broadcaster reflects a fair balance of opinion. Where necessary, programmes which express particular viewpoints should be specifically identified and an opportunity should be provided to those with different views to have their say. The more controversial the issue, the more important this requirement becomes. Editorial independence must always be strictly observed and no particular viewpoint should be given undue prominence. In particular, broadcasters should not let those being interviewed, including politicians and senior public figures, dictate the topics being covered or the way interviews are presented

APPROXIMATELY 60% OF AMERICANS AREN'T "REAL AMERICANS"

Results released today from a new Washington Post/ABC poll:



Results from the same poll that were released on Monday:





So approximately 60% of Americans think Trump fired Comey to protect himself, and approximately 60% oppose the president's decision to withdraw from the Paris agreement -- but Republicans are overwhelmingly out of step with the American public as a whole.

And yet nearly every day we're subjected to another media deep dive into the thinking of hardcore Trump supporters in the heartland. The implication is that Trump's critics live in an elitist bubble, and only Trump voters are real Americans.

Enough already. Most Americans are Trump opponents. Trump fans are the ones who are living in a bubble. Trump Country is the bubble where the voice of the real America doesn't permeate. Mainstream media, wake up and recognize this fact.

Nice - 

“To me, they’re not even people," the Trump scion told Sean Hannity about Democrats. "It’s so, so sad. Morality’s just gone, morals have flown out the window and we deserve so much better than this as a country."

Striking a self-righteous tone, Trump said of the Democrats, "They try and obstruct a great man; they try and obstruct his family." It is not clear how the Democrats have tried to obstruct the Trump family. Perhaps the reference was to the existence of federal ethics laws.
