You may have heard that today was Trump's heaviest day on Twitter as president. It almost matched his heaviest day ever, which was also spent sharing other people's thoughts about stuff they were watching on TV.
With the Democratic impeachment argument underway, Trump's social media allies are offering a mostly-misleading counternarrative.
Republican senators, Tuesday: We don't need to allow more evidence.
Trump, Wednesday: Man, the Dems haven't even seen the material we've got.
Trump says that his victory in 2016 was a function of Clinton's unpopularity. He's sort of right and sort of wrong â€"Â but apparently not worried about the irony of blithely pointing to that factor.
CNN's new poll shows a surge for Sanders, which is good timing. What the data suggest more broadly, though, is a very uncertain Democratic field.
Trump's affection for performative defenses framed in political terms will leave him pleased with how his lawyers kicked off his impeachment trial.
Some Democrats hope that Roberts might try and wrest control of the Senate trial from McConnell. Unlikely for several reasons, including the limits on his power.
A new poll shows broad support for calling witnesses in the Senate trial â€"Â but really shows the same broad divide on impeachment that's been there since day one.
Imagine a criminal trial in which half the jury was friends with the accused, the accused could ignore subpoenas and if evidence emerged after the indictment it wasn't admissible.
I decided to use closed-captioning and chyron data to figure out which story made the cable news networks more, Vince Vaughn or Lev Parnas. And guess what.
Went through each of the Dem debates to see what states they talked about the most. Their home states, sure â€" but also Iowa Iowa Iowa.
Our new poll showing the robust opposition to Trump among black voters â€"Â paired with his claim that black voters were rushing to become Republicans â€" prompted me to look at a *lot* of data about registration and voting patterns.
I suspect it's not a coincidence that there's so little evidence of Trump getting his hands dirty on Ukraine.
So here's something a little different.
A few days ago I came across an image of sheet music from 1868 called "Impeachment Polka," focused on the impeachment of Andrew Johnson. Dug into it a bit, talked to some folks â€"Â and found a pianist to perform it.
With the GAO finding, it's worth walking through what we already knew about the halt in aid to Ukraine.
With all of the new revelations from Parnas, I thought it was worth walking through the cast of characters â€" or, at least, a subset of them.
The new documents from Parnas give us a much clearer sense of how â€" and why â€"Â Yovanovitch was targeted for removal.
There are a lot of fascinating details in the handwritten notes Lev Parnas provided to House investigators. I walked through their apparent significance.
The debate starts shortly but there's important new impeachment details: More evidence that Giuliani's Ukraine efforts were for Trump's personal benefit.
If you hear "cancel culture" on cable news, guess which network you were most likely to have heard it on.
Since it's an election year, maybe Trump will start paying lip service to deficit spending again.
New Quinnipiac polling reinforces trends shown in poll averages: Biden and Sanders have more solid bases than Warren. But unlike the GOP 2016 contest, that's not necessarily as useful for the Democrats.
The most checked-out books in the history of the New York Public Library.
Tom Steyer's congressional term-limit proposal might have the effect of pushing Democrats to the middle and Republicans to the right.
Curious who will win Iowa? Good news: Two new polls have the answer.
Trump wants to present the Soleimani strike as a response to an imminent threat for political and legal reasons. New reporting significantly undercuts the case â€" or, at least, the political one.
The thing I think is interesting about the White House "first snow" tweet is how it does the opposite of what Trump's long tried to do when he tweets about the weather.
Setting aside October, when the GM strike temporarily pushed manufacturing lower, the density of manufacturing jobs in December was at its lowest point on record.
I made a map after 2016 showing margins of victory that revealed an interesting phenomenon. Finally actually wrote it up.
