Contributing sentiments towards policy:

4% : And Trump signals that crony capitalism of the corporate welfare state will keep expanding.
8% : Organized Lawyers -- These "officers of the court" and their bar associations should be first responders to this arrogant usurper of the rule of law and constitutional observances.
35% : Election reversing Electoral College, costing the party two presidential elections in 2000 and 2016 induces no opposition.
66% : Legislation ranging from omnicidal denial of climate disruption to living wage to universal health care and scores of other measures passed by the House dies in the Senate.
46% : The Civic Community -- Leading citizen advocacy groups like the ACLU, NAACP, the Brennan Center for Justice, Public Citizen, Common Cause, People for the American Way, and many other national and local associations have gone after Trump with hammer and tongs.
46% : Another recent encouraging initiative came from nearly 2000 former U.S. Department of Justice employees, many of these lawyers, who called for Attorney General William Barr to resign.
28% : Yet, until the Minneapolis police officers provoked recent recurring demonstrations everywhere, including in front of the White House, the streets have been far too quiet given the most accelerating disabling of our institutions, democratic standards of justice, and taking our nation into reverse toward a dark age that the Trumpsters are institutionalizing.
10% : By comparison, in 1974, Nixon was urged to resign by Republican Senators, including Barry Goldwater, over one count of obstruction of justice and one defiance of a Congressional subpoena submitted by the House.
45% : The ABA should look to the lawyers working with the ACLU, the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights or the Brennan Center for Justice for examples of what the legal professionals should be doing.
12% : After three and a half years of corruption, cronyism, chaos, illegal wars, and destruction of law enforcement protecting people from corporate ravages, Trump a bigoted, racist, serial fabricator, and boastful savage serial predator has not only gotten away with everything but has doubled down on everything.
17% : Organized Religion -- Historically, split internally between supporting changes for or against justice, the National Council of Churches' leadership has been fretting about taking on Trump
98% : The most powerful constitutional branch is disgraced by the Republican controlled Senate led by the evil Mitch McConnell, a corporation masquerading as a human, bent on installing an autocratic judiciary entrenching the corporate state and blocking bills that may put the interest of the people above the business lobbies.
98% : Nonetheless, apart from a few op-eds, Trump's ongoing intimidation and humiliation practices and tweets seem to have daunted them and many others from organizing to defend our democracy.
96% : The accumulation of anti-Trump social media cannot compare with relentless encircling of the White House by relays from 250,000 people committed early to demanding, with the rigor of evidence, rhetoric, artistry and media savvy, that this multiple Moloch must resign.
95% : The expectations of a broad and dramatic attack by AFL-CIO chief Richard Trumka on Donald Trump and his anti-worker policies never materialized.
94% : Amidst the daily provocations of hate, incompetence, corruption, and serial violations of the Constitution and statutes, Trump bludgeons workers, consumers, environment, patients, pensioners and most cruelly children.
12% : But the ABA continues to do nothing.
11% : Without Bernie Sanders, the Democratic Party reverts to not having answers to the question: What does the Party stand for?
10% : and Trump doesn't even shrug.
10% : They do not disagree, but they do nothing to oppose Trump.
6% : Well-funded Democratic Congressional campaigns guided by Nancy Pelosi have lost 4 of the last 5 Congressional races to the worst Republican Party in history.
