According to the latest Quinnipiac University poll, Donald Trump’s approval rating is now underwater with every demographic group except Republicans, white voters with no college, and white men.
But, significantly, white voters as a whole (51 percent) disapprove of the way he’s handling his job as president, while only 43 percent approve. His worst approval rating (4 percent) is among African-Americans, while just 24 percent of Hispanics approve of his performance.
So if the election were held today and our election laws were turned back 150 years (which at the rate we’re going seems likely), Trump would win. Narrowly.
Needless to say, as a white male American, I’ve never been so embarrassed. Ironically, the more that white people try to assert their dominance by hooting halfwitted encomiums at Shaved Dr. Zaius, the more idiotic we all look, proving that if there is a master race (there isn’t, of course), it sure as shit ain’t us.
In fact, several groups that are routinely crapped on these days have proved their intelligence, decency, and moral fiber by flatly opposing Trump.
Millennials? According to the Quinnipiac poll, only 26 percent of Americans aged 18-34 approve of Trump, while 69 percent disapprove. (Sixty-four percent strongly disapprove of him, which means, despite their slacker reputation, millennials appear to be our last, best hope.)
Hispanics? They work hard, contribute mightily to our economy, and hate Trump. Forget about a wall. Congress should fund a shuttle service.
And the next time you’re tempted to mansplain something science-y to a female, remember that only 31 percent of women approve of Trump, compared to 41 percent of men. So don’t even try to pretend we’re smarter.
But never mind our differences. We’re already coming together as one people thanks to the Nazi idiot in the White House. Let’s hope that continues. Maybe Trump really can unite us all.
