Did Trump win the NFL fight? (opinion) - CNN
"We've got enough data and anecdotes now to make an early call on whether President Donald Trump's fight over NFL players kneeling during the National Anthem was a political winner for him. With a small and probably irrelevant caveat, it was.
Two national surveys with rigorous methodologies show Americans are opposed to kneeling during the National Anthem:
-- A Fox News poll found 55% of Americans saying kneeling is inappropriate.
-- The most recent CNN/SSRS poll of adults found 49% saying the players are doing the wrong thing, versus 43% who say they are doing the right thing. Almost one-quarter of American adults said they planned to personally boycott NFL games, broadcasts and products because of the protests.
Inside the CNN poll, Trump got what he wanted: More Republicans (87%) and Independents (48%) sided with him than not. Heck, even 21% of Democrats are with him on the NFL issue. Even 24% of people who disapprove of the job he's doing overall see this issue his way."

One small problem...

The "opinion" of CNN is making the original comments made by Trump in Alabama as some sort of pre-calculated game...I don't think it was...I think it simply Trump being Trump...

Of course, when race relations starting going bad under Obama, it was all butterflies and unicorns and surveys like this were relegated to the page behind the obituaries...if at all...
Since July of last year...when some guy name "Obama" was president, "race relations are bad" have decreased 4% and "race relations are good" have increased 2%...

Look at that chart..."race relations are bad" went from 26% in November, 2011, to 44% in July, 2013, to 57% in December 2014, before finally reaching 76% in July, 2016...when virtually EVERYONE had Hillary as the next president...

...but the Left was totally blind to it until someone came along they can NOW blame...

When people saw how Obama was being treated as President, the rw media did nothing but attack Obama. The right cheered people like George Zimmerman and came to his aid while they called Trayvon Martin a thug. Yes, Race relations were falling apart before Trump and then Trump decided to be the conductor of that train. He appealed to people with comments against people of other races and religions. Just what was being fed to the right for some time. Things got steadily worse because of the racism in this country. I was pointing it out back then and Trump makes it even worse. The right here can't stop blaming Obama for every ill and they let Trump off for doing things they would have Hung Obama for. That is a fact and you know it.

If Obama could have kept his pie hole shut, Trayvon would not have made the front page of any newspaper.

Obama was an idiot for weighing in on an open criminal case. Obama was the major divider in the past. Trump inherited Obama's divided nation. Obama was the major fuq up we will pay for decades from now. The idiots on the left are still clinging to the idea that any and all who disagree with them are racist bigots.. You saw how well that played in the last elections. Keep it up and in the next elections the left wing idiots will loose yet again.

The left's divisive policies nearly ruined our nation, just as Soros wanted. But Obama, Soros's buddy did not get the job done. Hillary was to finish that.

Thank God we elected Trump.

You're seeing how well the racist bigots meme is playing out today in the NFL dust up. The NFL appears to be backing off with no gain. Since. like Martin, there never was a case to be made. Same with Brown and Baltimore.

But still. start a thread concerning Trump and the NFL and 2 posts in someone will divert to race. Often the same someone.

Without race the left has nothing.

Back to he OP, Trump didn't win. He stated what many believe. But the NHL surely lost.

The one who can't close his mouth is Trump. BTW polls show people wish Obama was in his 3rd term over Trump.

Agreed that's the spin CNN is taking. Either way though, it turned into a pissing match, and when even CNN ADMITS Trump came out good from this, you know it's bad for them.
