Wow, 70%+ unfavord on this site. How, in a rebublic does someone with such high unfavorability gets elected?

Notice that this isn't representative of the general population, and trump is also alot less popular outside of the us than within it.

He's not all that popular within it either.  Lowest presidential ratings in the first year in US history.

1.) A plurality election with no instant run-off favors a two party system

2.) An electoral college, with a winner-take-all system makes it so that one party receives a disproportionately high amount of power with a disproportionately low number of votes

3.) The party that is favored by the electoral college has pretty much completely abandoned fact-based discourse over the past decade plus - Trump does well in a world absent of facts

4.) The opposition party ran a competent, but well-connected political elite, which the country has grown tired of - Clinton

5.) The party that has abandoned fact-based discourse ran an incredibly effective smear campaign, blowing minor improprieties into criminal implications, against Clinton that lasted over four years, while producing no tangible results

If you want evidence of #5, Hillary's emails were the most covered story of 2016. The bi-partisanly appointed FBI Director said, "no charges", and even the Trump justice department is taking no real action, because there is nothing to take action against. They just really like talking about it, because it is a political talking point that worked really well for them. 

In the end, the American voter chose "not Trump" by a margin of 8%. They chose Clinton over Trump by a margin of 2%. But it wasn't enough to overcome the wackiness of 2016.

Demographics.  In general polling he is 55% disapprove and 38% approve.  Doesn't surprise me as he does very well with older people (50+)  who likely aren't on here.



Y'know, I didn't like Bush as a president, because I thought his policies were bad for America, but I didn't think he was a necessarily a bad person.

Trump, however, not only has even worse ideas regarding policy, but I honestly believe that he really is a genuinely bad person. He's a bully, a malignant narcissist, a petulant man-child obsessed with winning and inflating his own ego, and a habitual liar if there ever was one. He's unable to tolerate criticism of any kind, believes in numerous conspiracy theories, likes to pick fights, and possesses an at best superficial and ignorant understanding of what it means to govern. He has the authoritarian mindset of a dictator, and flirts with racists and white nationalists.

I knew from the get-go that he would be terrible as president in all the ways that count. I never supported him, I do not currently support him, and I never will support him. I hope and pray to God that he will end up in jail or at least in the unemployment line, preferably sooner than later.

And this is coming from a white male from South Carolina.

I'm quite surprised that Trump hardly lost any support.

Currently, just about 4.3% now support him less than they did back then - and 2.7% now support him more than they did back then.
So he basically only lost 1.6% support. Quite impressive.

Two words: Killary Clinton.

If the only choice people really have is between pest and cholera, don't be surprised if someone picks cholera.

Interestingly, crooked Killary is actually still even less popular than Trump. Which is quite amazing, given the extremely bad press and the historically low approval rates that Trump has.

Those who support him never game a damn about all the reason why others don't.

Ego, narcissism, ill-mannered, ill-tempered, childish, etc.....  His supporters never cared about them, ignored them for party sake or like him even more for it.

He said it best, "I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose voters."

Trump>>>>> May/Macron/Merkel and that prick Justin.

Globalist ISIS appeasing leaders like the four scumbags mentioned above are pathetic traitors.

Fine if you don't like that bunch, but at least give a valid reason rather than making up some sensationalist nonsense like that they are ISIS supporters.



Today's Flynn news might move the needle: I wonder how Fox will report on it, though.



Well he's still what we laugh about at work every week, even more so now than before.

What a tragic person he is.
