SO THIS REUTERS HEADLINE LOOKS BAD FOR TRUMP, BUT IF YOU READ PAST THE HEADLINE HIS BASE IS ACTUALLY MORE SUPPORTIVE THAN IN MAY: One in eight people who voted for Trump having second thoughts. In May, 82% of Trump voters said they’d vote for him again. In July, it’s 88%. His support has actually increased by 6%. A more accurate headline would be something like Trump’s Base Happier Than In May: Support Rises 6%. But, you know, narrative.

UPDATE: Link was bad before. Fixed now. Sorry!
