According to Elaine Kamarck, Founding Director of the Center for Effective Public Management & Senior Fellow in Governance Studies at the Brookings Institution, it is all in the perception of the president. How does this national emergency differ from those declared by previous presidents, and how does this fit into the overall Trump modus operandi? Kamarck joins the Poll Hub team and offers her insights. Plus, a look at Americans’ attitudes about the national emergency, compliments of the latest NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist Poll.
