A new poll from Morning Consult explored which endorsements were the most positive and most negative for politicians, and guess who was exposed as the most toxic?

In a fawning, nearly three-minute long report on NBC’s Today show, correspondent Sheinelle Jones touted Sex and the City actress and “progressive activist” Cynthia Nixon announcing her candidacy for New York governor, providing a primary challenge to incumbent Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo.
While Stephen Colbert and CBS picture God as favoring Oprah Winfrey over Donald Trump for president, the liberal media don't find it outrageous when liberal Democrats claim God will judge your record to see if you were a "good progressive." Imagine a Mike Pence saying God would ask if you were a "solid conservative," and you can see the double standard. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo used his view of Heaven to explain why he is a better choice for that office than fellow Democrat Bill de Blasio, the mayor of New York City.
This past week, a Republican state legislator in Georgia made news after he posted arguably threatening messages on Facebook directed at a black Democratic former legislator who had complained about Confederate monuments.
