Trump voters got well and truly suckered, Part 42

“There is no way to spin or sugarcoat these sagging numbers,” said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.
“The erosion of white men, white voters without college degrees and independent voters, the declaration by voters that President Donald Trump’s first 100 days were mainly a failure and deepening concerns about Trump’s honesty, intelligence and level headedness are red flags that the administration simply can’t brush away,” Malloy added…
American voters disapprove 58 – 37 percent of the way the news media covers Trump. Voters disapprove 65 – 31 percent of the way Trump talks about the media. And voters trust the media more than Trump 57 – 31 percent to tell the truth about important issues.

If your tendency these days is to cast a jaundiced eye on political polling, and poll aggregators/analysts, then you and I have that in common. But numbers, and other indicators, as extreme as those seen throughout this poll are not to be dismissed.
