A Snapshot of Why Most Americans Disapprove of Trump

I caught this news report of a Joni Ernst town hall meeting where she got a earful from disenchanted voters. It demonstrates what Trump's GOP minions are up against in 2018.

Dude: One is the loneliest number. But do you have to be such a dick?

Yes, in most ways, "Trump is such a dick" sums up both his essential style and opens up a view into what might be his Waterloo, which is that people -- or some -- might envy or even admire dicks, but they rarely like them. Most Americans don't.
WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump ends his first year in office with 39 percent of Americans approving of his job performance, according to the latest national NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll — the lowest mark in the poll’s history for any modern president ending his first year.
Fifty-seven percent disapprove of Trump’s job, including a majority of respondents — 51 percent — who now say they strongly disapprove, which is a record high for Trump in the survey. That’s compared with 26 percent of Americans who strongly approve of the president’s job.
Conservative Senator Joni Ernst of Iowa got a scolding from the dissatisfied at a meeting with constituents:


Senator, you might want to listen to your people. So far, it doesn't seem you do. That might be your Waterloo.
