POLL: Majority Say Trump Is “Unfit To Serve”

Just out from Quinnipiac:

President Donald Trump is not “fit to serve as president,” American voters say 56-42 percent, and voters disapprove 57-36 percent of the job he is doing as president, according to a Quinnipiac University national poll released today.

There are deep party, gender and racial divisions on whether President Trump is fit to serve, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University Poll finds: Trump is not fit, Democrats say 94-5 percent and independent voters say 57-40 percent. Republicans say 84-14 percent that he is fit. Men are divided 49-49 percent, as women say 63-35 percent he is not fit. White voters are divided as 50 percent say he is fit and 48 percent say he is not fit. Trump is not fit, black voters say 96-4 percent and Hispanic voters say 60-40 percent.

American voters disapprove 62 – 32 percent of the way President Trump is handling race relations. Disapproval is 55-39 percent among white voters, 95-3 percent among black voters and 66-28 percent among Hispanic voters. President Trump is doing more to divide the country than to unite the country, American voters say 60-35 percent.

    Joe, can we give this crap a rest and get back to the LGBTQ news? Please?

    • matrem

      When Trump intends on setting our rights back 50 years, reporting on this crap is important.

    • Refugay

      No. We can not give this crap a rest until we #itmfa.

    • FAEN

      LGBTQ news and equality are connected to this asshole at the moment. He can cause us tremendous harm. We have to keep reporting on this crap.

    • Ninja0980

      This man is putting anti-LGBT judges on the courts as we speak.
      Hence the reason this crap is being reported on.

    • clay

      back to Satanic Cake for you πŸ˜‰

    • If we ignore all this other ‘crap’, the only upcoming LGBTQ news will be the re-imposition of sodomy laws.

      Also, hundreds of thousands of Americans in PR/USVI are at risk of dying. I think that kinda matters. Don’t you?

      • WitlessProtection

        Look guys, WE all know he is a moron, but I used to come here to get news about LGBTQ stuff that I couldn’t find anywhere else. Now – it all anti-Trump all the time. I am just tired of it. We can all find this kind of new story ANYWHERE out there. Can’t we have ONE day – JUST ONE FUCKING day – on JMG that is Trump free? I know it is Joe’s website and he can do with it as he pleases, but we are also his loyal readers, some of us have been with him for years (almost a decade for me) and I am just over this Trump obsession.

    • Cipher

      Puerto Rico has a LGBTQ community. We cannot hear from them because they have no phone service, no electricity, no modes of transportation and those who need medical care may die.

  • matrem

    But the majority don’t vote!

    • Todd20036

      ANd that’s why I have 0 sympathy for them

    • Not true.

      More voters cast ballots in November’s elections than when President Obama won reelection in 2012, though the number of Americans who showed up to vote remains well below all-time highs set half a century ago.

      About 139 million Americans, or 60.2 percent of the voting-eligible population, cast a ballot in November’s elections, according to data compiled by the U.S. Elections Project. That compares with 58.6 percent of eligible voters who turned out in 2012, but it’s below the 62.2 percent who turned out to help elect Obama for the first time in 2008.

    • What I’m reading today is the Navy is only “planning” to send the ship. That it hasn’t actually left the dock.

      Navy Cmdr. Mike Kafka, a service spokesman, said that the ship will leave within the next four days, and it will take up to five additional days to reach Puerto Rico. He called the move a β€œprudent decision in light of current conditions on ground.”

      In other words, a week and a half before it gets there. Assuming it leaves.

            I watched FTL get back to normal, within 3-4 days, including electricity restored to the hotels along A1A on the ocean in 24 hours. Other than a few traffic lights being out… and Comcast, things were not bad.
            ATT & Verizon forgave any data overages on my cell phone. So, I created a Hotspot on my iPhone, and continued to stream LIVE TV (MSNBC) to my laptop for the4 days I was out. Jut got my ATT bill, and there were NO extra charges!

          • JWC

            Trump wants to blame their failed and antiquaited infra structure grid but if people like him hadn’t screwed PR with one of his failed golf resorts they may have updated a few things There is more than just spite when Castro would taunt PR as not really being American Part of his taunt was “wait till you need them”

          The shitstorm of news has gotten so heavy that I can’t even keep track of all of Trump’s fuckups anymore, but weren’t some ships deployed to North Korea but ended up well southwest?

          I would like to see Trump try to locate Puerto Rico on a map.
          Hell, I would like him to try to find DC on a map.
          And if that fails, even the US.

            I keep a list in a drawer in my desk. Every day I add to it–offensive quotes, shitty actions, insults. That way, when he inevitably leaves office in disgrace (by impeachment or not being reelected or hell, leaving after eight years as the most unpopular president in US history), I’ll be able to provide a bulleted list to the similarly-inevitable wave of Trumpanzees demanding to know “what was so awful about him.”

          • vorpal 😼

            I really, really never thought it was possible for the US to elect a presidont that was more of an embarrassment to us than Bush.

            Oh man… have I been proven wrong on every level. Any presidunce that makes you long for the Bush era is really a KKKlass akt.

      The Jones Act was waived to facilitate relief for Texas and Florida in the aftermath of Irma, and the same thing needs to be done for Puerto Rico, but this administration is dragging it’s feet. The Jones Act is an outdated law that requires that ships going from American coast to American coast be American–built, owned, flagged and crewed.

          • vorpal 😼

            Once again, a pretty easily verified fact that Republicans willfully choose to ignore.

          • Kenster999

            Right. I called him on that, saying, “Wait, are you saying that the Dow *didn’t* go from 8,000 to 18,000?” He just stared back at me blankly, realizing that he was wrong. But he didn’t change his mind.

          • FAEN

            Of course not.

          • Todd20036

            I’m guessing you don’t talk to your brother much anymore.

          • Kenster999

            Another point I had made in November was that Trump was lying about the unemployment rate, claiming it was as high as the mid- to high-40s (percentage). That number was bogus; to get that high, you would have to define “unemployment” as “everyone not working” which includes retirees, stay-at-home parents, college students, etc. (Obama had been claiming the commonly-used statistic of about 4.5%, which is half of what it was in 2008.) In January or February when the first economic numbers came out, Trump suddenly started using the standard (lower) rate too, claiming a massive improvement in his first month. (When asked about this, Sean Spicer said that the lower number didn’t used to be true [under Obama], but now it was true — and the media just laughed and let it pass.) I wrote an email to my brother explaining this, since I hadn’t done so in the November conversation. He sent a nice reply saying that he had actually felt really bad about mocking me like that back then, and sincerely apologized, which I took as sincere and accepted.

          • ColdCountry

            I will never forget, prior to the election, when I said Dump lied, a woman looking at me with wide-eyed astonishment and saying, “Trump doesn’t lie!” The mind, it boggles.

      Because the Democrats failed to offer a clear, positive message.

      • Cackalaquiano

        I do wish Dems would get their messaging act together. Republicans know how to do this much better than Dems. Dems HAVE better policies, they just don’t know how to sell them to win elections.

        • Cipher

          It’s so maddening and frustrating. No judgments: Republicans know to message for a 7th grade education. Democrats have more complex and nuanced policy positions to begin with, which makes that a lot trickier.

          We need to recognize that that you deal with the electorate we have, not the one we might want to encourage to exist. When the electorate began to comprehend complexities, the GOP and its propaganda machine responded by encouraging anti-intellectualism. Add racism and xenophobia, etc., and Dems. are doomed!

          • downtownla

            I totally agree. Unfortunately, it often comes off that the Democrats look down on the voters. Even on this site, so many commentators are always bashing the voters calling them stupid and ignorant and saying they should jump off the building. Fine, believe that. But try getting someone to vote for you when you treat them that way.

          • Todd20036

            Trump manages to do just that. And he treats his base like shit.

          • pch1013

            He insulted crowds TO THEIR FACES and they just ate it right up.

          • downtownla

            Trump attacks everyone but his sacred conservative, white, Christian voters (and Vladimir Putin). Even when they march in Klan rallies, he defends them.

          • Cipher

            I’m sure it does. That, however, is a two-way street. I know a lot of Democrats who view the religious right’s sanctimonious suggestion that “God” is on their party’s side as looking down on us.

            Republicans sure know how to brand things. We all know about, e.g., the “Death Tax”. Democrats can’t even get the naming correct. It never should have been the “Affordable Care Act”; it should have been the “Health Coverage Expansion Act”, since that’s what the law actually does….

        • Scott Carpenter

      • Ernest Endevor

        What, like ‘We Want to Run the Country Because We Know How to Do It?”

        • downtownla

          Unfortunately, being the adult in the room isn’t a very sexy selling point to most American voters. We needed a message of change like “Yes, we can” or “Make America Great Again.” Both slogans imply a direction – one said moving forward and the other backwards. But both were pretty clear to voters.

          • cleos_mom

            So was it the lack of a “very sexy selling point”, the lack of a “clear, positive message” or the next bromide that comes in handy?

          • downtownla

            Those two ideas are not necessarily incongruous. However, the sexy selling point was in direct reference to the previous commentators suggestion.

      • Nick in Pasadena

        I’m so sick of this accusation. Trump’s MAGA slogan was anything but clear and his “message” reeked of hate and divisiveness. HRC was done in by many other factors outside of her control.

        • downtownla

          His slogan was code for “Make America White Again.” To his base, that’s what they wanted to hear. Just like when he talks about Charlottesville and the NFL players. We may not like his message, but everyone knows what he means and who he is talking to.

          If you really think Hillary was undone by all these outside forces, then you really underestimate her. Hillary is a strong, intelligent woman who was the boss of her own campaign. She made all the key decisions about the VP, where to campaign, the message, etc. Unfortunately, she underestimated Trump, thinking America could never elect this buffoon. But rest assured, those were her choices. At least give her that much credit.

    See world, we are not ignorant.

  • I never, ever want to hear an ignorant motherfucker ever claim the two parties, Democrat and Republican, are basically the same. Or that there’s no point in voting. Or that it’s “safe” for them to “take a stand” and vote for a 3rd party candidate.

    For starters, the Dems never would’ve nominated someone as unfit, unqualified, erratic, corrupt, unethical, and mentally deficient as Trump to be President. Yet some 40+% of Americans who didn’t vote or who voted 3rd party allowed exactly that to happen, their electoral silence becoming consent to this monstrosity of would-be fascist authoritarianism.

  • Darrel Cj

    These stark differences in polling numbers are a(nother) wake-up call that too many white people/men/Republicans think they understand the experience of minorities, but really don’t. When there is a FOURTY point difference between white and black disapproval, this suggests that too many whites aren’t even trying to think about how others experience this idiot of a presidunce.

      So many of those are dirt fucking poor but keep throwing in with this obese snake oil salesman.

      Well, since their mommies told them they could be president one day (being white and male), and they know their own considerable limits . . .

    Is it wrong to hope Thomas has karma visit him in the way of a racist police officer?

    • TampaDink

      Wrong? No. It would be just…….just.

  • ab

    The majority of people did not vote for him.

    • bambinoitaliano

      The majority of people didn’t even bother voting.

      • Not true. Turnout was in the low 60s %.

        • bambinoitaliano

          You are close. Around 58%. Still a significant chunk of voters did not turn out considering how close the results was and how the Dems, the GOP, Bernie Bros and Jillian Sis were at each others throat blaming each other. That 42% would have given a better mandate and I suspect the shit gibbon would not have been sitting in the White House now.

  • LeeCMH

    An important note:

    The question was “fit to be president,” not approval or disapproval.

    50% whites think Trump is unfit, far beyond mere disapproval.

    • Lumpy Gaga

      Don’t read too fast: whites say he’s fit by 50-48.

      • LeeCMH

        Oh 48% say Trump is unfit. 48%.

        The two points are dropped. Feel better now?

        • Lumpy Gaga

          You wanna re-run the election with those numbers?

          • LeeCMH

            Sure. 48% say Trump is unfit. We haven’t added the folks to disapprove only.

      • Natty Enquirer

        Since the margin of error in this poll is 3.1 percent, there is no statistical difference between white-fit and white-unfit.

        • LeeCMH

          Thank you for the observation.

  • shellback

    How brain-dead must anyone be to to think he’s fit in any way, shape, manner?

    • Just gotta limit your media intake to just Fox News, hate radio, and Russian propaganda delivered via Facebook & Twitter-bots.

      • clay

        Someone on here just the other day believed something Betsy DeVos said simply because it was something Betsy DeVos said.

    • Natty Enquirer

      Not brain-dead. Just lying and hypocritical.

    And the worst part about it is that many of those 84% of Republicans drive cars!

  • Jefe5084

    I disagree. “Unfit to Live” is my choice.

  • pch1013

    85% of Republicans think he cares about average Americans.

    Republicanism is a mental disorder.

      A selected kind of average Americans.

    This is the same Trump they elected last November.
    He hasn’t changed, and those who voted for him didn’t care then.

        Who was more responsible for Hillary’s loss? Hillary Clinton or Susan Sarandon? And please, no personal attacks. I’d really like to know you think had the bigger role.

        • Cipher

          Hillary. That said, anyone who was too stupid to do everything legally permitted to stop Trump is responsible for this country’s demise. Offered a plate of steaming dog shit or some bland noodles, some people were dumb enough to complain that the noodles were cold. The voters are responsible for this mess, more than Hillary’s ineptitude, poor communication and stupid strategy.

          We are at risk of losing the next election and every election thereafter due to a mass of Sarandoning voters who threaten every Democratic party candidate. 2000, 2016…what’s next?

          Anyone who cared about $ in politics could have figured out that Trump filling the open Supreme Court seat means that Citizens United will be upheld as good law in the next case. Anyone who cared about health care could have foreseen that, with a Republican Congress we wouldn’t just fail to see single payer, the ACA could be repealed. Anyone who cared about women’s issues could tell that a pussy grabber who runs beauty pageants isn’t going to suggest a revamped ERA. Anyone who cares about LGBTQ rights, people of color- don’t even get me started…

          • CharlestonDave

            Love your bland noodles metaphor!

          • downtownla

            I mostly agree with you. Where you and I diverge is that you somehow think these far-left voters or green party members are winnable votes. I don’t think they are and I don’t think they ever will be. I think you should just write them off and work on getting the millions of other voters who didn’t come out, not because they supported Stein or Bernie, but because they were either 1.) disenfranchised by Republican tactics 2.) didn’t feel the candidates were addressing their needs 3.) were younger voters and didn’t feel that connected to them 4.) didn’t see a difference between the two parties or a host of other reasons . Basically, the unengaged and the undecideds. These votes are actually gettable in my opinion and it’s an actually much larger than that Stein/Sanders voters.

          • Cipher

            Hmmm… An excellent point. I think you are correct. And the last election saw a huge non-voter population.

            Wrestling with the source of my anger, I think a quote attributed to MLK goes something like this: “In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends..”

            Seeing so many people who claim to care about the issues that matter so much to me behave in a manner that results in so much damage to said issues is something that I cannot get over.

            Following your point, if we can get millennials to vote and if the eyes of the so-called independent voters are open to the reality of Trump, the voters will ditch his administration and the politics of division and discord. I do worry about a strain of thought on the left that applies an ideological test designed to fail any “mainstream” candidate, requiring purity or perfection, even when the realistic alternative is this kind of catastrophe.

          • downtownla

            While I am worried about our country in the short-term, I am optimistic about our long-term prospects (except for global-warming, on that front we’re fucked). But as Obama proved, you can overcome racism and other structural disadvantages if you can inspire young people and the disenfranchised to have HOPE. Give them something positive to work towards. The good news is also that young people are far more progressive and even more positive towards the word “socialism” than they are towards “capitalism.” Now, how do we convert them into actual voters for our team? That’s where I think we should be putting our energies.

        • KarenAtFOH

          Russia, Comey, and media for ratings

        • Jean-Marc in Canada

          Sweety, you missed the point of what Sarandoning means.

    Ummm, the people said this on election day. Given that the majority of America did not vote for this asshat to begin with.

    I haven’t seen any poll that shows a majority of voters think Donnie is fit for the office he holds. But how can it possible be that 85% of Republicans actually believe he’s fit? What the hell is wrong with them?

    Anyone who thinks Trump is fit to serve as President should be shot into the Sun.

    I guess this could be construed as genocide.

    No shit, the majority said that last November when they chose Hillary Clinton for president. Their votes just got ignored in favor of the idiots out in flyover country.

    • kareemachan

      Let us not forget the russkies, FB, Bernie, Stein, and the Kucks.

  • paperloader

    I agree with this poll. President Dotard is definitely not fit to be President. He is the worst POTUS in American history. Never before has our country been so divided thanks to Tweety Bird.

  • andrew

    How will poor Kellyanne spin this. These stats do show just how fucked up Republicans are. The Republican Party was the party of Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, Dwight Eisenhower, even Reagan and Bush Sr and now it overwhelmingly supports a mutant like Trump. Have far it has fallen.
