New poll suggests Trump’s legacy will not be goodPosted by Robert Leonard / December 27, 2019
A recent poll asked 1,500 Americans what they thought Trump’s legacy would be. The survey gave respondents “outstanding,” “above average,” “average,” “below average” or “poor.” A shocking 49% said they thought Trump’s legacy would be considered “poor” by future generations. Another 9% said “below average.” It may surprise some, but 22% of respondents said “outstanding.”
It should come as no surprise that so many think Trump’s legacy will be bad, he’s not exactly popular. Last week, 48% of Americans were in favor of Trump’s removal from office. This week, that number has shot up to 55%. At the same time, the number What’s more, over a dozen editorial boards support impeachment and removal from office.
That it was a Fox News poll that shows turning tides is significant. Last week, Fox News host Chris Wallace has declared war on Trump. That’s only because he thinks that Trump declared war on him, first.
“I believe that President Trump is engaged in the most direct sustained assault on freedom of the press in our history,” Wallace said, “He has done everything he can to undercut the media, to try and delegitimize us, and I think his purpose is clear: to raise doubts when we report critically about him and his administration that we can be trusted.”
Trump seems to be losing allies left and right. Last month, he attended a UFC event, only to be met with boos and jeers. A few cheered, but the majority were not as kind, and people tweeted out the booing. According to a political scientist, this is potentially bad news for Trump––this should be Trump’s crowd, so this might be a sign that Trump’s base is turning on him.
He was booed at the World Series, the height of American sports. And to make matters worse, parts of the crowd also turned his own chant against him, shouting “lock him up!” Watching the video, it’s clear he’s muttering under his breath and trying not to storm out of there.
