Nation Moving Away From Donald Trump–Minus The Usual Ones

April 24, 2017

The latest NBC/WSJ poll shows two Americas.

There are Republicans and Donald Trump’s most committed supporters on the one side and everyone else on the other side.  It really does come down to that.

In the poll, 82% of Republican respondents, 90% of self-described Trump voters, and 56% of white working-class Americans approve of Trump’s job as we approach his 100th day in office.  That will be on Saturday.

But from there it is all bad news for him.

Trump, by his lack of insight, resume, character, and knowledge of the issues has lost nearly everyone else in his first three months in the Oval Office.  He is making history for being so low in the polls at this stage and for being so highly disregarded.  The poll shows that just 7% of Democrats, 30% of independents, and 34% of college-educated whites give Trump’s job a thumbs-up. Overall, the president’s job-approval rating stands at 40%.  Mind you that is the lowest ever in the history of the NBC/WSJ for a new president.

What we are seeing should not surprise anyone.  We all knew this was what would happen.  We all knew Trump would be a failed presidency based on what he is.   This base-vs.-everyone else issue is in part is due to his lack of outreach.  He plays to angry white under-educated males than those in the middle.

None of this plays well for the nation or the complex issues that require an engaged and informed president who can lead.

    I discovered your blog shortly after the inauguration and felt at home with your views. You were mentioned in a local paper about how residents were fighting back in their own way about the election. I live in Antigo and feel apart from the majority who voted for Trump. It is nice to read your blog as you state it loud and clear about what is wrong today. Our state needs voices like yours and I want to thank you for your time. I have you bookmarked for a daily read.
