  • AP-GfK Poll: Americans overwhelmingly view Trump negatively

    WASHINGTON (AP) — For Americans of nearly every race, gender, political persuasion and location, disdain for Donald Trump runs deep, saddling the Republican front-runner with unprecedented unpopularity as he tries to overcome recent campaign setbacks.

    Seven in 10 people, including close to half of Republican voters, have an unfavorable view of Trump, according to a new Associated Press-GfK poll. It's an opinion shared by majorities of men and women; young and old; conservatives, moderates and liberals; and whites, Hispanics and blacks — a devastatingly broad indictment of the billionaire businessman.

    Even in the South, a region where Trump has won GOP primaries decisively, close to 70 percent view him unfavorably. And among whites without a college education, one of Trump's most loyal voting blocs, 55 percent have a negative opinion.

    Trump still leads the Republican field in delegates and has built a loyal following with a steady share of the Republican primary electorate. But the breadth of his unpopularity raises significant questions about how he could stitch together enough support in the general election to win the White House.



    It also underscores the trouble he may still face in the Republican race, which appears headed to a contested convention where party insiders would have their say about who will represent the GOP in the fall campaign.

    "He's at risk of having the nomination denied to him because grass-roots party activists fear he's so widely disliked that he can't possibly win," said Ari Fleischer, a former adviser to President George W. Bush.

    Beyond their generally negative perception of Trump, large majorities also said they would not describe him as civil, compassionate or likable. On nearly all of these measures, Trump fared worse than his remaining Democratic or Republican rivals.

            Because the poll is a load of crap. Based on who I deal with at work, co workers, and customers, it's more like 7 to 10 in favor of Trump.

            Most of those folks fully understand Trump is full of s**t and will most likely be a bad thing, but like him anyway. At least over Hillary or Bernie.

            This whole "lesser evil" thing is sinking to new lows.

            America, we're fooked. Oh well, like another Jim once said, I don't know what's going to happen, but I'm going to get my kicks before the whole s**thouse goes up in flames.

                The poll is a load of crap. We have scientific proof. Gixxer's customers, in a NJ town auto parts store, say it isn't so.

                  I guess real world contact and experience doesn't matter anymore.

                  We still have mom and pop stores here in the US, John. The type of place where people come to buy parts, and hang out. All sorts of people. Mayors, cops, etc.

                  You've been away too long, John.

                    Yet so many Republicans will continue voting for him over other Republican candidates and throw a fit when Hillary wins the election. As if they didn't set their selves up for failure.

                      Give Trump credit, thanks to him Ted Cruz is now an acceptable alternative to the GOP leadership. They still don't like Ted but they don't dislike him nearly as much as they dislike the Trumpenstein Monster!

                        Says the AP poll, probably paid for by the Democrats.

                        Polls aren't even as accurate as weather forecasts, but the amount of time, money and effort being spent to discredit Trump tells me just how frightened the Democrats are.

                          And what share of the electorate does your social circle in New Jersey represent: 20%, 10%?

                          Trump's delegate lead makes him the odds-on favorite to win the GOP nomination. Even if he doesn't capture the 1,237 delegates needed to win outright, just so long as he shows up at the convention with the largest number -- which is likely -- then it'll take divine intervention to deny him the GOP's banner.

                          And then Hillary will hammer him in November. The only real question is if Bernie Sanders is the Democratic nominee. What happens then?

                            One positive for Sen Sanders is that he isn't the mud slinger that the rest are.
