Poll: 70 percent say Trump acts unpresidential

By LOUIS NELSON 07/17/2017 09:01 AM EDT

President Donald Trump’s behavior as commander-in-chief has unnerved respondents to a Washington Post/ABC News poll, 70 percent of which said he has acted in an unpresidential manner since assuming office last January.

Trump’s overall approval rating in the poll, portions of which were first released Sunday, dipped to 36 percent, a low-water mark for any president at this early stage of an administration. But the president fared even worse when respondents were asked about his personal behavior: In addition to the 70 percent who said Trump has been unpresidential since moving into the White House, 68 percent said they do not see him as a positive role model and 56 percent said his conduct is “damaging to the presidency overall.” Fifty-seven percent of respondents said that the more they hear about the president, the less they like him.

Trump’s Twitter habit earned an especially strong rebuke from those polled, with 67 percent responding that they disapprove of his use of the social media platform. Fifty-two percent said Trump’s Twitter usage was “dangerous,” while 65 percent said it was “insulting” and 68 percent said it was “inappropriate.” Other respondents used more positive word-associations, including 41 percent who said the president’s tweets were “interesting” and 21 percent who called them “refreshing.”

Among Republicans, 38 percent of those polled said Trump’s conduct has been unpresidential, a view shared by 48 percent of white evangelical protestants reached by the poll and 55 percent of white men without a college degree who responded to it.

1. The 30 per cent who think Trump acts presidential

must be YUGE fans of The Three Stooges and unable to separate fantasy from reality.

2. No, they misunderstood the question.

Decent correspondence between such basic misunderstanding and lacking any hook into reality, I'd wager.

3. Wow, That Number For The HS Educated White Guys Is Surprisingly High

I guess the 38% of R's and 48% of evangelicals is too, but not as much as that 55% number.

10. He's stuck at the middle school mentality.

The worst age group in my opinion.

6. Hell, that number even dips into his base.

There really are enough morons who would vote for a man for President, and they don't think he's "Presidential"



Spaghetti Monster help us.
