3 years ago, the poll choices were Trump, Hillary or neither.
The new poll listed all the names of all candidates.
I don't think the polls are the same.
I wonder if this is just a communication tactic. We’ve had a few ministers walking into number 10 with policy documents on display.
Couples of stories about borders and immigration:

Found under the heading "we just don't learn do we?":
This administration has done everything they can to cause chaos and suffering at the border and then tried to criminalize anyone trying to make the situation better. Fuck these genocidal fucks.

I know so many terrible things are coming from the Trump/GOP leadership, and some of the vilest relate to the treatment of asylum seekers. This thread is from a volunteer legal advocate who's seen what happens first hand. It describes conditions that would send people petitioning the government to stop if it were dogs, but it's happening to human beings that The Trump/GOP have been dehumanising for the past three years. It also describes an important policy change that's coming - to shift responsibility for these people to the Department of Defense, where they can ban volunteers, the media, health and welfare workers, even politicians on the grounds of "national security." If they are brutalising people like this while being watched, we can only imagine what they will do to them when there is no one to see it. Fuck me, this is ghastly. Going to copy and paste below as twitter threads may get missed.
Just a reminder . . . they're at 7 with preparations underway for 8.
