McConnell was traveling through the eastern part of Kentucky to discuss disaster relief following deadly storms and floods that hit the state when a reporter asked him about the Mar-a-Lago raid. “What is your reaction to the FBI raid yesterday at Mar-a-Lago?” the reporter asked McConnell. “I am here today to talk about the flood and recovery from the flood,” McConnell replied.

Seven-out-of-ten Republicans favor reduced illegal and legal immigration, and GOP voters are evenly split over whether immigration is good or bad for the nation, according to a new Gallup poll. “Republicans’ Desire for Less Immigration Has Surged Since 2020 … The mounting desire for decreased immigration in recent years has been driven mainly by Republicans, whose preference for reducing immigration is [at 69 percent,] up 21 points since June 2020, when 48% expressed this,” Gallup reported on August 8 . Opposition to migration has nudged up among Democrats and independents, said the survey, which showed “a five-point increase among independents, to 33%, and a four-point increase among Democrats, to 17%.” The GOP’s growing skepticism about migration reflects the growing polarization since 2o12 when a growing share of “woke” Democrats began to embrace migration. Gallup reported: In 2008, at the end of the George W. Bush administration, 46% of Republicans and 39% of … [Read more...] about Gallup Shows Rising Opposition to Immigration

Here are 10 observations from the first two weeks of Miami Dolphins training camp: 1. The linebackers were the most interesting unit of the first Dolphins’ depth chart . Melvin Ingram is listed as an outside starter over Andrew Van Ginkel. That’s not a big deal as both will play. The point here is they like Ingram this much, though the larger point is to ask if the Ingram of August will be the same as the Ingram of December and January. He’s 33 with a history of injuries. He had stops at two blue-chip franchises, Pittsburgh and Kansas City, the last two seasons and didn’t stick. But if the Dolphins get anything close to the Melvin Ingram of the Chargers then they have found someone valuable. We’re still in the message-sending part of an NFL, so we don’t know if the Dolphins’ message is they like Ingram this much or want to push Van Ginkel. Maybe both? 2.
