No, there's definitely good and bad polling.

From that article about the Australian kid - hopefully soon the word 'unbelievable' will stop being used.

It lools as though Amazon, Expedia and Microsoft don't agree with you Andy. Cynically, it's good press.

This is why partisan politics is hard. The people you piss off are half the population.

Cynically I'd suggest that Amazon, Microsoft and Expedia's market has only a small overlap with Trump's demographic.

Working at Cisco you get a very good idea for how strong the feeling about this is in the States without reading the news, the CEO doesn't often send obviously hand written (not dictated) emails to all staff on a Sunday.

A LOT of Americans identify as a 'nation of immigrants', even amongst Republicans, and I suspect the battle will be fought not based on facts but based on the viewpoint of the anti immigrant 'dey terk err jerbs' lot versus the 'nation of immigrants' identity.

Good opportunity for any GOP senators who're facing the other way to hoist their colours.

The guy's obviously incredibly concise (and a politician in his own right with probably a lot more skill at it than most presidents) but it's essentially a message that a diverse and inclusive workforce underpins our success as a business, a message that Cisco will do all they can to help any affected employees, and a message that they will engage with the US and other countries' governments on high skilled immigration.

Oooh that's a fun equivalency to draw when the reason that those countries penalise Israeli citizens is because of the UN resolution against Israel for committing war crimes... I mean fuck me, it's like arguing with toddlers.

Oh I also think I might have made a list by visiting the comments section of that website. What the fuck is it andy?

It's Guido Fawkes (Paul Staines) - he's a political right leaning blogger and occasionally on TV. Good for Westminster goss and quite fun to read but agree the site is a bit like Perez Hilton in 2004

Right leaning?

Whoever the clown behind the pseudonym, he's a cunt who lies to feed an audience who could have done with a healthy dose of skepticism in their curriculum growing up.

I dunno, Staines is incredibly right-wing, but I don't think he's particularly guilty of lying and he's had some good scoops in the past.

Yeah Guido Fawkes is genuinely a good blog. Take the visuals as they are but it's not some fake news bollocks.
