Trump Flops as Role Model, Except Among GOPers

There is almost no gender gap in grading President Trump's standing as a role model. Every party, gender, education, age and racial group, except Republicans, say the president falls short, the independent Quinnipiac University Poll finds. Republicans say 72-22 percent that Trump is a good role model for children. Another key element of the president's base, white voters with no college degree, say 54-41 percent that he is not a good role model for children.

President Trump does not provide the U.S. with moral leadership, American voters say 63 - 33 percent. Again, there is virtually no gender gap as all listed groups, except Republicans and white voters with no college degree, say by wide margins the president does not provide moral leadership. Republicans say 80 - 16 percent he does provide moral leadership and white voters with no college degree are divided 47 - 47 percent.

"For President Donald Trump, it's a troubling trifecta: Stagnant approval numbers, low grades on most character traits and the reality that if parents are looking for someone their kids should emulate, that person is not residing at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue," said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.

"Only 27 percent of American voters say they are proud to have Donald Trump as president, while 53 percent say they are embarrassed - a 2-1 negative."

Apparently so.

The GOP wants an America where every young boy can grow up to cheat on his wife and every girl is a porn star.

The power of blind partisanship illustrated clearly in this poll.

By 72 to 22 percent, they say Trump is a good role model. In marked contrast to the rest of the country, Republicans also say that Trump shares their values (82 percent) and that -- get this -- he "provides the United States with moral leadership" (80 percent).

For years and years all we heard from the right was their moral superiority over heathen liberals cuz Jeeezus.

Now we see what their idea of morals and Jeezus really is, Donald Trump. LOL

"power of blind partisanship"

This something more serious than votes. It is a serious cultural issue.

Who wants to be around people who raise their children to be like Trump? I wouldn't want my kids to be around them.

Yes it is.

I agree, but it's more than just blind partisanship.
There's a lot of eyes wide open partisanship supporting Trump.
Evangelical Christians for example.

And a lot of GOP enabling of BLOTUS for narrow partisan goals.

Is Trump a cause of or a symptom of rot in the GOP?

Greedy. Hypocritical. Values looks over substance. Dishonest.

Of course Trump is a rightwing role model. Welcome to the 21st Century GOP.

One of the many reasons I staunchly opposed him in the primary and didn't vote for him in the general: He'd become the face of the GOP.

I thought Hillary would be every bit as bad but for completely different reasons.

Since both candidates were unfit, I decided I didn't want to be a Johnson, so I voted Gary Johnson.

Trump: cheater. Cheats at golf, on his wives, his contractors, his taxes, and cheats the American Public with his lack of moral compass and maturity.

This guy could raise a stink while alone in the bathroom, and blame someone else...

Regardless, only one of those "both candidates" was going to win.

Republicans also say that Trump shares their values (82 percent)

I think trump shares Republican values as well.

I'm a registered Republican. My last votes were Dole, Bush twice, McCain and Romney. If anything my third party vote helped Hillary, not Trump.

Trump flops at everything...

Role model.
Husband.
Father.
Businessman.
Decent human being.

It's all of us. Liberals are doing similar things.

#24 | Posted by BruceBanner at 2018-01-31 09:57 AM

Liberals want a liberal version of Trump.
