Too much low-hanging fruit


No, Rasmussen has your approval exactly at 44%, with 54% disapproval.  538.com, by the way, has the Rasmussen poll of March 6-8 rated at a "C+".  The Marist poll, rated "A," for March 5-6 has an approval rating of 42%, a disapproval rating of 50%.  You can read the Axios link for comparisons to Obama's favorability ratings.  Basically Trump still has to look up to see Obama's lowest numbers.  50% is "close" to 44% the same way a lightning bug is close to lightning.

And remember that canard that Trump "won" the popular vote, if you just discount the vote from California?  Trump does:

“‘Women won’t like Donald Trump,’” he portrayed critics as having said during his campaign.

“I said, have I really had that kind of a problem? I don’t think so. But, ‘Women won’t like Donald Trump. It will be a rough night for Donald Trump because the women won’t come out.’ We got 52 percent, right? 52. And I’m running against a woman. You know, it’s not that easy,” he said, referring to his presidential political rival, Hillary Clinton.

Except Trump won only 41% of the women's vote.  He did win 52% of the white women's vote, but I guess those are the only ones who should vote, right?

Fake news much?

We found out Republicans can't do math in the Reagan administration.

It is clearly a danger to democracy and even national security that a large enough percentage of the population could have been convinced to vote for Trump as did, both democracy and national security can be destroyed by a minority vote that puts someone like him in office. Yet we still have the Electoral College, after it has brought the like of Trump into office.
