Re: The Number of People Who Regret Voting for Trump Is Growing

But a majority of Trump supporters still feel the President is "keeping his promises" and "getting things done."
Last month, half of Trump voters felt he was "surrounding himself with the best people." This week, 39 percent do.
But Trump-who last month tweeted "Any negative polls are fake news"-may have cause for concern if support among his base continues to fall, said Margie Omero, executive vice president for public affairs at PSB Research, who spearheaded the poll.
"He has no crossover appeal," Omero told MarieClaire.com, citing other polling outlets that have found Trump to be strong with his supporters, but dangerously weak with Democrats and independents. "So if he starts to slip with his base-as he has in our poll-where does he have room to grow?"
"He has to hold onto his base going into the midterms," she added. "If this slide continues, he is going to have some serious trouble."
Slip sliding away...
I find that incredibly hard to believe. Not because media polls have lost their credibility after the election. Its because of the fact that morons knew of Trump's liberal past, Trump's support of liberal democrats and RINO republicans, Trump's praise and financial donations to liberal democrats and RINO republicans,Trump's praise of Obama before he jumped on the birther tard band wagon, and other nonsense and still voted for the man. Plus with media polls anyone can say they voted for so and so and not provide any evidence. I doubt any of the poll takers followed the poll respondents to the polls and watched who they voted for.
"There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag… We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language… and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.”—Theodore Roosevelt
