Honeymoons

The honeymoon is over, Donald

and it wasn't much of one.

A couple of excerpts:

...the Quinnipiac poll shows a drop in confidence in Trump across the board. Although 59 percent were optimistic about the next four years under Trump in November, today that number is 52 percent. While 41 percent thought he would be a better leader than President Obama, it’s now 34 percent. While 52 percent thought he would help the nation's economy, it’s now 47 percent. While 40 percent thought his policies would help their personal financial situation, it’s now 27 percent. While 53 percent thought he’d take the country in the right direction, it’s now 45 percent.

and

Trump won the election, which in his mind — and in the minds of many analysts — would seem to have vindicated his brand of politics and many of the decisions he made on the campaign trail. He got elected, so it all must have been secret political genius!

That’s not really how things work, though. Trump squeaked his way into the White House with a very narrow win in which he got 46 percent of the vote, won the states he needed to by less than a point, and lost the national popular vote, as voters told pollsters said they had huge reservations about him.

That's the interesting thing. The ones who are swooning over Our Donald's every word, copy/pasting all the whacko Internet memes and blatantly fake stories from the fringe right 'news' sites seem to be mostly The Eighty Percent.  The four out of five white evangelical 'Christians' who voted for Trump. They were and are the most heavily addicted Kool-Aid drinkers. The rest of the people who voted for Trump are the ones who voted, then went outside and puked, either literally or figuratively.
