Trump picks a delicious cherry about the economy from an otherwise not-terrific poll

On Wednesday, Quinnipiac University released a new poll chock-full of bleak numbers for President Trump.

Only 36 percent of Americans approve of the job Trump is doing as president. The two words most commonly offered to describe Trump’s first year were “disaster” and “chaotic.” More people said Trump’s first year in office was worse than expected than said that it was better. A majority of the country is pessimistic about the next few years of a Trump presidency. Majorities of the country think Trump is dishonest, a poor leader, doesn’t care about average Americans, is not levelheaded, doesn’t share their values and is not fit to serve as president. Two-thirds of the country think the economy is doing well.

So when Trump tweeted about the poll on Wednesday morning, guess which of those data points he isolated? CONT.
