Yeah, 'Cuz He's the Worst

Philip Rucker and Robert Costa for the Washington Post: "Trump would be least-popular major-party nominee in modern times."
If Donald Trump secures the Republican presidential nomination, he would start the general election campaign as the least-popular candidate to represent either party in modern times.

Three-quarters of women view him unfavorably. So do nearly two-thirds of independents, 80 percent of young adults, 85 percent of Hispanics and nearly half of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents.

Those findings, tallied from Washington Post-ABC News polling, fuel Trump's overall 67 percent unfavorable rating — making Trump more disliked than any major-party nominee in the 32 years the survey has been tracking candidates.

...Peter Hart, a veteran Democratic pollster who has studied public impressions of Trump, said voters' views of him are "exceptionally rancid."

"In terms of any domestic personality that we have measured, we've never seen an individual with a higher negative," Hart said.
Exceptionally rancid! And as well they should be.

Gee, maybe the media can stop obsessing over Hillary Clinton's likeability for two seconds and consider Trump's likeability.

Or, rather, the cavernous lack thereof.
