Trump is the most unpopular candidate of either party when the entire U.S. population is taken into account — and … he has a higher unfavorable rating than any nominated candidate from either of the two major parties going back to the 1992 election when we began to track favorability using the current format.
At this point (two-week average through Jan. 27), 33% of Americans view Trump favorably and 60% unfavorably.
Even Hillary, despite decades of subjecting us to corruption, incompetence, and her shrill, witchlike cackle, has a significantly better unfavorable rate at 52%. In sharp contrast, Ted Cruz’s unfavorable rate is only 37%, despite the Washington establishment telling us he is unlikable.
Subtracting unfavorable from favorable has recently provided the following numbers:
Cruz sits at +51 with Republicans, which is the highest in the field. He’s at -3 with Independents, and -37 with Democrats. While that sounds bad, consider Trump is only at +27 with Republicans, -27 with Independents, and a whopping -70 with Democrats.
Trump cannot win the national election, even if he gets to run against Hillary, whom any other Republican would whale on. One-third of Republicans may worship the floor beneath his loafers; that does not mean he wouldn’t stand a good chance of losing all 50 states, with negative coattails that would put Democrats in charge of both houses of Congress.
