Polls Shows Only 38% Favor Trump

Do you recall this as Trump moved through the 2015/16 campaign for the GOP nomination?

While we certainly know Trump lies well over 80% of the time, we relish the prospect US polling will lead to personal disinterest in holding the US Presidency.

His poll numbers have precipitously dropped since his inauguration in January. The latest evidence f public disenchantment with the reality TV president is from Quinnipiac University. 

Poll methodology does, however, indicate a slight lean towards Democratic sampling.

February 22, 2017 - Trump Slumps As American Voters Disapprove 55% - 38% Quinnipiac University National Poll Finds; Voters Trust Media, Courts More Than Presiden

American voters today give President Donald Trump a negative 38 - 55 percent job approval rating, his worst net score since he took office, down from a negative 42 - 51 percent approval rating in a February 7 Quinnipiac University national poll. 
President Trump's negative scores are 36 - 59 percent among women and 41 - 50 percent among men, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University Poll finds. Republicans approve 83 - 10 percent, while negative approval ratings are 5 - 91 percent among Democrats and 38 - 55 percent among independent voters.  
Trump gets a negative 39 - 55 percent favorability rating, also his worst net score since taking office. Vice President Mike Pence gets a split 41 - 40 percent favorability.  
Opinions on most of Trump's personal qualities also are negative, as American voters say: 
  • 55 - 40 percent that he is not honest;
  • 55 - 42 percent that he does not have good leadership skills;
  • 53 - 44 percent that he does not care about average Americans;
  • 63 - 33 percent that he is not level-headed;
  • 64 - 32 percent that he is a strong person;
  • 58 - 38 percent that he is intelligent;
  • 60 - 37 percent that he does not share their values.
Trump is doing more to unite the country, 36 percent of American voters say, while 58 percent say he is doing more to divide the nation.

The Daily GOP ignominious:Town Halls, Coal Miners, Trump Dissonance , And The Coloring Book

Town Hall anyone? according to Trump's number one White House presstitute, what we are seeing are not real (not reality). Basically, Spicer hit the Press Room stage with what Trump's Number two presstitute calls alternative facts."

It is called malcontent. I actually believe many of the people in these meetings are suffering from chronic cognitive dissonance or voter remorse (if you prefer). Before our Twitter video journey, PBS published a piece about attendance at the Town Halls. 

Trump presstitute Spicer deployed alternative facts in the face of the reality of major district malcontent 
The GOP NO Show
 Town hall meeting at my local mosque in Boonton, NJ. @USRepRodney did not show up. Sad! #resistancerecess— Safia Ansari (@safianoor) February 22, 2017
From open town hall rebellion to a constituency Trump used to sway the hearts of many on the Right; the less informed who actually believe the coal industry has a real future.  If we accept their desperation in voting for Trump, why can't they accept their role in the GOP's fight to repeal the very healthcare laws they have used to sustain life.
Couldn't these people see Trump as a GOP Trojan Horse?  
If you feel their are GOP mavericks about who will eventually save you (and us) from Trump, think again.

There are no mavericks, there are no saviors. Your vote protest vote or non vote was a vote cast for Trump.
