  • Chief of Staff Jeff Papa departs Indiana Senate
    “Jeff Papa has served our Senators and staff extremely well, and we are going to miss him greatly. Jeff is a smart and talented individual who applies a wealth of institutional knowledge, legal expertise and genuine concern for the well-being of our state to his work each day. I am sad to see him go, but I wish him all the best as he transitions to his next opportunity in the private sector.” - Senate President David Long, on the announcement that his chief of staff Jeff Papa will resign to take a partner position with Barnes & Thornburg. Papa said, “The Indiana Senate is a very special place to me,” Papa said. “I will always be grateful for the opportunity to be involved in the important work that is done here every day on behalf of Hoosiers.”

  • President Trump a polling bottom feeder
    President Trump is flagging in the polls, with the latest NBC/WSJ Poll putting his job approval at 40% with 56% disapproving. NBC notes that Trump is “still holding on to Republicans and his most committed supporters. In the poll, 82% of Republican respondents, 90% of self-described Trump voters, and 56% of white working-class Americans” but he stands at only 30% with independents and 34% of college educated whites. And here’s how Trump stacks up with modern presidents at this stage of their presidencies: Eisenhower: 73% (April 1953); Kennedy: 78% (April 1961); Nixon: 61% (April 1969); Carter: 63% (April 1977); Reagan: 67% (April 1981); Bush 41: 58% (April 1989); Clinton: 52% (April 1993); Bush 43: 57% (April 2001); Obama: 61% (April 2009); Trump: 40% (April 2017). Why the low standing? Just 27% give him high marks for being knowledgeable and experienced and only 21% give him high marks for having the right temperament. And then there’s that problem with the truth: Just 25% give him high marks for being honest and trustworthy, down from 34%. On top of all this, he faces a yuuuuge week with the debt ceiling showdown, a new tax plan his Treasury Department doesn’t seem to know about, a second stab at TrumpCare, and that arbitrary "first 100-days" measuring post. - Brian A.
