    7 years after Delhi gang rape, brutal India attacks continue

    Days after an alleged gang-rape victim was set on fire, a note was left at the family home of an 18-year-old set to testify in her own case against a man she had accused of rape. “Consequences may be worse than what happened in Unnao,” the note read, alluding to the city in northern India where a woman was allegedly doused with gasoline and set ablaze by five men, including two she had accused of gang rape who were out on bail. Sexual violence against women and girls is so common in India, the case was given only a few lines in one of the country’s leading dailies.

    Trump Impeachment Drama Not Changing Minds, New Polls Show

    (Bloomberg) -- The televised drama that’s gripped Washington and parts of the nation over the past month has done little to change public opinion about President Donald Trump and impeachment, according to two polls released on Sunday.Half of those surveyed think the president should be impeached and removed from office with 41% opposed, according to a Fox News survey.“They got it all wrong. Get a new pollster,” Trump tweeted a few hours after the survey was released.In a separate CBS poll, 46% said Trump deserved to be impeached over his actions toward Ukraine, up from 43% in November.Days before the House is expected to impeach Trump, only 42% in the CBS survey said that the Senate should then convict and remove him. One in five said the Senate shouldn’t hold a trial at all.“Few of the respondents we recontacted from last month have changed their mind on this issue,” CBS said.Trump’s job approval rating ticked higher in the Fox poll, to 45% from 42% in late October, and dipped in the CBS measurement, to 44% from 46% in November.By a 60% to 24% margin, voters told Fox that it’s generally wrong for Trump to ask leaders of foreign countries to investigate political rivals, and 53% said the president had abused his power. Responses to the survey fell broadly along partisan lines.Only 23% of voters surveyed by Fox approve of the job Congress is doing, against 62% who disapprove. When asked who’s better at “Washington gamesmanship,” 41% picked House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and 37% said Trump.Debate also continues to rage about the actions of the FBI in 2016, as it launched an investigation into Russian interference in the U.S. election and the actions of the Trump campaign. Some 71% of Republicans, compared with 38% of Democrats, said there was a chance the FBI broke the law, the Fox poll showed.In the CBS survey, Americans were split equally between those who think workers in government agencies like the FBI and the Foreign Service act in non-partisan ways, those who think they are partisan and politically motivated, and those who aren’t sure.The Fox survey of 1,000 registered voters was taken Dec. 8-11 under the direction of Beacon Research, a Democratic polling firm, and the Republican pollsters Shaw & Company. It had a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.The CBS News poll of 4,584 U.S. residents was conducted Dec. 11-13 by YouGov. It had a margin of error of plus or minus 1.7 percentage points.(Updates with Trump tweet in third paragraph.)To contact the reporters on this story: Ros Krasny in Washington at rkrasny1@bloomberg.net;Jordan Yadoo in Washington at jyadoo@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: James Ludden at jludden@bloomberg.net, Steve GeimannFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.
