TWEETS OF NOTE

  • (@parscale) Just received my newest voter score tracking from my team. @realDonaldTrump has reached his highest national approval rating since I started tracking. The @TheDemocrats have really made a mistake going with their gut over data. Tweet.
  • (@kausmickey) If @CNN took a poll and it came back showing that a majority of viewers liked Trump’s Oval Office address and were favorably influenced, would they publish it? I wish I were sure the answer is ‘yes.’ Tweet.
