Trump and polarization in context
February 8, 2017 3 Comments
Nice couple of tweets from Charles Franklin today on presidential popularity. First, here’s Trump compared to other presidents. Whoa!
And Trump by party. Alas, Republicans are largely immune to Trump’s horribleness.
But, damn does everybody else get it (obviously, those Independents approving are Republican leaners). And lastly, GWB and Obama over their full terms by party. Given that GWB, no matter what you say about him, is pretty much objectively more competent on virtually ever measure, there’s plenty of reason to expect Trump will fall at least this far and pretty much lower. Ideally, though, before November 2020.
