Judging from the media and Hillary Clinton voter’s protesting this year’s presidential election results, you would think that the vast majority of the country is up in arms against Donald Trump’s victory, but polling shows quite the opposite.
A new Gallup poll was just released yesterday and has measured the level of confidence people are feeling in Donald Trump since he won the election last week. In what is most likely a shock to media pundits, the majority of people polled have more confidence in his ability to lead the country than those who do not.
A narrow margin, yet Trump holds 51% in this confidence poll, indicating more people have faith in his leadership than the media would have led us to believe. It’s important to note that Clinton, Obama and their allies have all tried to peg Donald Trump as “divisive” and causing a wedge in America, giving the impression that the future of this country under him would be all doom and gloom. If that was what people believed, however, you would expect these numbers to be much lower.
In fact, Trump’s confidence numbers aren’t too far off from past presidents, indicating there is no major “fear” within the public as the pundits have claimed.
Donald Trump hasn’t even been sworn into office yet, but some media outlets are already claiming he will be a disaster. Considering how wrong the media was in predicting the outcome of this election, I’d be willing to believe the opposite of whatever they are saying is more likely to be the truth.
