It would be interesting to see the comparative popularity numbers broken out by age. I am old enough to remember Richard Nixon very well, and he was in every respect a better president than Trump could ever hope to be. Did Nixon abuse his power? Absolutely. Did he break the law? Absolutely. Did he lie? Absolutely. Did he do it nearly every single day of his presidency? Unlikely. People also forget that some good legislation came through the Nixon White House. Repeal of the draft, voting rights for 18-year-olds, establishment of the EPA, not to mention his foreign policy accomplishments. Had it never come out that Nixon was dirty, he might have been remembered as one of the better presidents of the 20th Century. I say this as a lifelong Democrat.
Cheap Schmeap. You don't bring a knife to a gunfight. Do you think Karl Rove isn't going to take cheap shots at Obama? Romney has made his business experience a campaign issue. Well, let's get all of his business dealings out in the open. It's a hollow argument in any case. Being the chief executive of a country isn't remotely like being the CEO of a company. You have a lot more responsibility and much less direct control. But if Mitt wants to run on his business record, that's fine. The last time I checked, business executives were a lot less popular than nurses, teachers, and a whole lot of other working folks.
