Donald Trump Polls Shockingly Well Against President Obama


That’s not to cast any aspersions on The Donald’s qualifications for president. It’s just amazing that he can poll within two points of President Obama in a head-to-head matchup, as measured by Newsweek/Daily Beast, because people tend to not like him as a person. According to a different recent poll by PPP, only 27 percent of voters have a favorable opinion of Trump. That same poll had Trump down by 14 points to Obama, so it’s possible NewsBeast’s numbers are a fluke. [Daily Beast]
