Every recent Rasmussen poll I've looked at shows a 42 percent strong disapproval rating for Trump. Yet, there are 500k jobs openings in manufacturing: https://www.cnbc.com/2019/07/17/american...

Are there 500k people who had something horrible happen to them because of Trump? How can anyone say the positive doesn't outweigh the negative?

My expectations for Trump weren't very high. Yet, he has arguably surpassed JFK, to be the greatest president of all time.

Is it a poor education system, or is it the medias fault that so many people hate Trump? Do Americans deserve a better education in statistics? If people thought more in terms of statistics, would there be anyone who strongly disapproved of Trump?

People talk about inhumane conditions for migrants. I had a cousin in the U.S who was held in inhumane conditions. He was an illegal immigrant who had an American education. He was able to get management level jobs. Yet, it was under Obama that he was detained. He kept getting transported all across the country, wasting tax payer $, until finally he was deported.

Of course, there are negative anecdotes against Trump as well. Not 500k though. Why do Democrats always think in terms of anecdotes rather statistics?
