POLITICS 06/23/2018 08:00 am ET Tommy Ewing-Brown initially refused to serve a group of Trump supporters a week before the election. By Arthur Delaney WASHINGTON ― It was about a week before the 2016 election, and Tommy Ewing-Brown had several angry Donald Trump supporters on the other side of the bar where he worked with their cellphone cameras pointed at him. “So you’re not going to let us come in here and have a drink because you don’t like Trump?” one of them said. “Yes,” Ewing-Brown told them. “I don’t like racist bigots.” The scene foreshadowed the heckling several Trump administration officials received in D.C. restaurants this week. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen’s dinner at a Mexican restaurant was ruined when a group of protesters stormed the restaurant, yelling about her agency’s policy of separating migrant children from their parents.

Washington (CNN)Supporters of President Donald Trump are sometimes painted with a broad brush, unequivocally loyal regardless of controversies or investigations plaguing his administration. But significant blocs of his strongest supporters do break with the President or his positions from time to time. A CNN analysis of recent polling data regarding Americans who say they approve of the way Trump is handling his job overall reveals varying degrees of willingness to temper support for the President or outright rebuke his job performance or policy priorities in specific areas. Then-candidate Trump famously said on the 2016 campaign trail: "I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody, and I wouldn't lose voters." And while that might be hyperbole, it is true that Trump voters have been nearly unanimous in standing by him overall.

Trump-backed candidate Ron DeSantis won Florida’s Republican nomination for governor on Tuesday night. Congressman DeSantis, who proudly boasted about his support from the president, easily bested state Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam, in a race called by The Associated Press about an hour after polls closed. In November, DeSantis will face Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum who scored an upset win over US Rep. Gwen Graham (D-Fla.), the daughter of former Gov. and US Sen. Bob Graham, Fox News projected. DeSantis gained some national fame this cycle running a campy ad with his wife extolling what a great dad he is – showing their young kids how to build a wall and say the words “Make America great again.” In a tweet Monday, Trump said of DeSantis: “Strong on Crime, Borders and wants Low Taxes. He will be a great Governor and has my full and total Endorsement!” … [Read more...] about Trump-backed candidate wins Florida’s GOP primary for governor

U.S. A recent survey found that when it comes to supporters of President Donald Trump, the majority of those in the western region of the United States don’t feel comfortable vocalizing their opinion. Between November 28 and December 4, a poll conducted on behalf of NPR and PBS NewsHour surveyed 1,075 adults about their opinions on America’s political climate. Among the questions asked was whether respondents felt they could speak their mind freely. The difference between Trump’s supporters that felt they could speak freely and those that felt they couldn’t was only one percentage point, with a 48 to 47 split of people responding that they couldn’t speak freely. However, when grouped into four regions of the United States – the Northeast, Midwest, South and West – the gap widened.
