"SNIP....

Aaron Blake looks at the latest Associated Press/NORC poll and suggests the most troubling finding for President Trump “is this one: 41% of Republicans say that Trump doesn’t make them feel ‘excited.’ A strong majority (58%) says Trump does make them feel excited, but this is still 4 in 10 Republicans who aren’t excited about their Republican president.”

“That’s hardly the kind of base discipline you would want to brag about. And it’s a far cry from the raucous support you see at Trump’s rallies.”

2. I've definitely had trouble getting it up since Nov. 2016

So I know where they're coming from ...

(not TMI, I'm only kidding ... pretty much )

4. It is difficult for many people to get excieted about a one trick pony

That number has to scare the crap out of the Republican powers that be. I hope their lack of excitement translates into their staying home next November.

6. So only 58% of Republicans are excited about him?

And based on one bit of data, Republicans are comprised of about 33% of the voters. 58% of 33 is 19%. I guess that will get him re-elected. If he gets help from the Russians.

7. His base includes lots of coal miners put out of work, auto workers out of work and farmers with

mountains of debt and rotting product. I bet a whole lot of them kiss the Orange King adieu and either stay home or vote for someone else.
