Buyers’ Remorse: Americans Think Trump is Bad at Almost Everything
Juan Cole Informed Comment

The vast majority of Americans in a new Quinnipiac opinion poll do not believe that Donald J. Trump is level-headed or shares their values. Of course, this is only one poll, and likely the plus or minus swing is 3 or 4 percent. But actually the findings are so decisive in most cases that that wouldn’t matter. Qunnipiac showed Trump beating Clinton last summer, so you can’t accuse them of being biased against him.
And only 38% think he is doing a good job in his first month, versus 55% who say no. In contrast, a strong majority trust the courts to do the right thing.
This finding has to be underlined. Only 33 percent of Americans (as projected from this poll) think Trump is level-headed.
