Sarah Palin and Donald Trump Race to the Bottom


Sarah Palin fancies herself a runner, but some question whether she is really capable of that.

She is most famous for quitting.

Donald Trump was never much of an athlete.  He sits in a chair while playing basketball.

He tells people he plays golf.  Yet he has been reported to cheat at golf, and he’s been seen holding a golf club in unusual places.  Here he’s pretending to play in amber waves of grain rather than on a golf course,

When Trump plays baseball he looks impaired!

Who wears the same suit and tie to play baseball, roll Easter Eggs, and be inaugurated President?

Donald Trump seems to inspire others to quit, including a CIA employee, an Hawaiian legislator,   and Arnold Schwarzenegger.  People in his own administration have quit, including Michael Flynn, Carter Paige, and Paul Manafort.

However the real race between Palin and Trump appears to be a race to the bottom.  Who can become less popular faster.  In June of 2015 Fox News decided not to renew its contract with Palin. Palin’s standing with Republicans and Americans overall had taken a nose dive since the 2008 campaign.

Palin’s net favorability rating (favorable minus unfavorable) among all Americans1 has dropped more than 40 percentage points, from +18 percentage points to -24 points by mid-2014, according to a local regression. Meanwhile, her net favorability rating among Republicans has declined more than 55 percentage points, from +83 percentage points to +27 points by mid-2013.

A new Gallup poll just released only 45 percent of Americans agree with the statement that the president keeps his promises. Back in February, 62 percent of people agreed that he was a man of his word — a 17 point drop over two months.  That gives him a net favorability rating of -5.

The decline is even more dramatic for women.  In February, 65 percent of women surveyed said they thought he kept his promises. Now, that number is at 40 percent.  That represents a net favorability rating among women at -10.

 

In February, a majority (53 percent) said Trump can bring about the changes this country needs. Now, only 46 percent of respondents agree with that assessment.

Most revealing is the decline in the perception that Trump is an “honest and trustworthy person.”  In February 42% of Americans believed his lies.  Now only 36% of Americans find him to be honest.  That’s a net favorability rating of -14.

It appears that the best way for Trump to reverse the trend would be to quit.

  3. To the bottom…. The whole country is learning the price of ignorance and how the wealthy take advantage of hard working Americans. The millennials, with their intelligent use of tech and research, will pull us out of this mentally deficient era. They expose the lies and refuse to play the game. They will boycott, change, and/or take down the industries that are killing us with toxins and destroying our quality of life.
