Thirty-seven percent of Americans rate the Trump administration as having good or excellent ethical standards, according to a Gallup poll released Thursday, the lowest rating given to a White House since the poll started asking the question during the Reagan administration. Fifty-nine percent of Americans said in the poll that Trump administration officials' ethics are poor or not good

The guys that said good or excellent ethics are liars without ethics of their own.

These people are straining after a dictator the way a constipated man strains after a turd.

Trump thinks ethics scores are like golf, the lower the score the better.

"The previous low was during the Clinton administration"

Trump learned a lot from former president Clinton.

About 50% higher than what I would have guessed.

Nah - there's a solid 35% of Americans who seem to support him no matter what. They think everything being said is lies.

But this is America. Ethics don't matter.

Anyone who gives any credence to ethics in the 21st century is someone who refuses to believe that the world doesn't revolve around them. A grown man can legally use a woman's bathroom at the same time a preteen girl is in there and actually has the right not to be questioned about it regardless what he identifies as, because questioning would be rude and unethical.

Yeah, ethics left America many years ago.

Yeah, because hooking up with an adult intern is the same as...well, violating every ethics rule known to man?

Amazing how the Trump presidency has changed how Republicans talk, isn't it?

"Ethics ethics ethics..." to "Ethics don't matter."

Where's Snipocenter to blame Obama or Clinton for this worst administration in our history?

Leave it to Sentinel to equate Clinton's hookup with an adult intern to the hundreds of ethics violations this worst administration perpetuates. It's exactly like one of these Trumpers trying to equate "If you like your health care policy, you can keep it" to the thousands of documented lies the President tells and continues to tell.

It is exactly this kind of false equivalency that allows Trump to continue to debase this nation.

In support of an Electoral College, Alexander Hamilton penned the following in Federalist Paper No. 68, first published in the New York Packet, March 14, 1788:

"The [Electoral College] process of election affords a moral certainty, that the office of President will never fall to the lot of any man who is not in an eminent degree endowed with the requisite qualifications."

"will never fall" ... to "a moral certainty" ... yes, ... well, ...
