Not every shotgun wedding leads to a honeymoon.
Even before the PervertGate dossier became public yesterday, Americans were fast losing faith in the Great Orange Bloat.
The Washington Post reports that, as usual, Trump's polling numbers got a bounce after his election win but that started fading prematurely. He's not even inaugurated and the American people are turning against him.
A new poll from Quinnipiac University suggests that Trump has reverted to his pre-election standing, with Americans having major concerns about his temperament and the direction in which his presidency will lead the country. Trump’s continued controversies seem to have put him right back where he was before he won the election.
Quinnipiac is the first high-quality pollster to poll on Trump twice since the election. And while its poll in late November showed his favorable rating rising from 34 percent to 44 percent, that number has dropped back to 37 percent, which is about where it stood for much of the campaign. That’s tied for Trump’s worst favorable rating in a poll since his election. And a majority — 51 percent — now have an unfavorable view of him.
The American public, it seems, tried to like him and they must have tried awfully hard to like him but it didn't take.
You get the idea. There are similar drops in views of his honesty (42 percent to 39 percent), his leadership skills (56 percent to 49 percent), his compassion for average Americans (51 percent to 44 percent), his levelheadedness (38 percent to 33 percent) and his ability to unite the country (47 percent to 40 percent).
