Americans Struggle To Draw Conclusions, Even When the Facts Are Completely Clear

As a schoolboy, I once made a comment about something that was always quite clear to everyone, and a friend told me, “Craig, you have a firm grasp on the obvious.”  The photograph here brings that moment back into focus for me.

For some reason, however, Americans’ perceptions of Trump are not so cut and dried.

There are 42% who deem Trump to be honest, competent, Godly, dedicated to public service, selflessly committed to the well-being of all Americans–the victim of a predatory media.  Fortunately, most of the rest of us see him as nothing but a conman, but 42/53? That’s just amazing.
