Americans Struggle To Draw Conclusions, Even When the Facts 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.  http://www.2greenenergy.com/2020/09/08/trump-nothing-but-a-conman/

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.
