82 prosent av republikanske velgere sier de har mye eller en del tillit til presidentembetet, en økning på 23 prosentpoeng siden desember 2016.  Antallet negative har falt fra 13 til 7 – syv – prosent.

Det vil si at 53 prosent av republikanerne hadde tillit til presidentembetet, selv om presidenten var fra motsatt parti. Økningen på 23 prosentpoeng betyr at republikanerne omfavner sin kandidat. Trump har vunnet velgerne.

An astonishing 82 percent of Republicans say they have “a lot” or “some” confidence in the institution of the presidency, according to the January 2018 Morning Consult Poll.

That represents a 23-point increase from the 59 percent of Republicans who said they had “a lot” or “some” confidence in the institution of the presidency in the December 2016 Morning Consult Poll conducted one month after President Donald Trump was elected, but one month before he was inaugurated.

And among Republicans, there are even fewer naysayers about the institution of the presidency in January 2018 than there were in December 2016.

The number of Republicans who describe their confidence level as “none at all” in the presidency dropped from 13 percent in December 2016 to a mere 7 percent in January 2018.

På demokratenes side forholder det seg stikk motsatt, og her er negativiteten til en president fra den andre siden mye større enn den var da rollene var byttet om.

Only 24 percent of Democrats say they have “a lot” or “some” confidence in the institution of the presidency today, down 30 points from the 54 percent who had that level of confidence in December 2016, the last full month of the administration of President Barack Obama.

Virtually all of those Democrats who no longer say they have “a lot” or “some” confidence in the institution of the presidency now say their confidence level in the institution is “none at all.”

In December 2016, 18 percent of Democrats said their confidence level in the presidency was “none at all.” One year and one month later, in January 2018, that number has increased by 34 points, to a whopping 52 percent.

Men det er grunn til å merke seg at 18 prosent av demokratene heller ikke hadde tillit til Obama. I dag har 24 prosent en viss eller en god del tillit til presidenten. Mer enn halvparten har ingen tillit overhodet. Hele 52 prosent.

USA er polarisert som aldri før, og det er demokratene som «løper vekk» og bestrider presidentens autoritet.

En annen viktig gruppe er de uavhengige, og her har tilliten til presidenten bare falt ubetydelig, innenfor feilprosenten.

Since December 2016, when 42 percent of independents had “a lot” or “some” confidence in the institution of the presidency, that confidence level has declined by just three points, to 39 percent in January 2018, just beyond the Morning Consult Poll’s two percentage points margin of error.

Men antallet som ikke har noen tillit, har økt fra 20 til 31 prosent.

The number of independents who say their confidence level in the presidency is “none at all” has increased by 11 points, from 20 percent in December 2016 to 31 percent in January 2018.

Hvis Trump holder seg på dette nivået, kan demokratene få slite med å gjenvinne flertallet i Kongressen.
