The best and worst things about a Trump presidency
A third of Americans think the best or most positive thing about a Donald Trump presidency would be "nothing," according to a recent Gallup survey.
Second to that, Americans think the best thing about a Trump win for America's top job would be that he's a good businessman and "follows through." The worst thing, Americans believe, would be that he's "too outspoken," "impulsive" and "doesn't think before he speaks."
The finding were published on Wednesday by Gallup, which asked a "nationally representative" and random sample of 1,012 adults across all 50 states from January 6-10 what would be the best and the worst things about a Trump presidency. For nine percent of those questioned, the best thing would be his immigration policies, which have included calls to build a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border. Eight percent of respondents said the best thing would be that Trump is "honest/says what he feels," while 6 percent liked that he's "confident/strong/does not back down."
When asked what the worst thing about a Trump presidency would be, 12 percent said he was "too outspoken," "impulsive" and "doesn't think before he speaks". Nine percent said he "lacks experience," while another nine percent said the worst aspect would be that he's "arrogant." Three percent said he would lead America into wars, while another 3 percent said the worst thing about a Trump presidency is "everything."
Eight percent said the worst or most negative thing would be "nothing."
Trump is the Republican frontrunner. He's leading in the polls with 38 percent support, according to the latest NBC/SurveyMonkey online tracking poll conducted from January 11-17. He has a 17 percent lead over Sen. Ted Cruz, who's polling in second place with 21 percent of support.
