With the possibility of the world having to deal with President Donald Trump–gawd, it’s hard just to type that–pollsters are looking for new ways to gauge the mood of the public on the Trump Issue.
Public Polling Policy decided to get right to the heart of the matter. How can hate toward The Donald be quantified?
For this survey, they asked a simple question: “Do you have a higher opinion of Donald Trump or [blank]?”
Comparing Trump hate to that exhibited for Nickelback, The Most Hated Rock Band in the World™ was a natural. The answer to “Do you have a higher opinion of Donald Trump or Nickelback” is interesting. Of those polled, the boys from Hanna, Alberta, came out on top 39% to 34.
This, however, wasn’t the only investigative pairing. Trump was compared to the following:
|Hemorrhoids||Trump preferred, 45/39 (+6)|
|Cockroaches||Trump, 46/42 (+4)|
|Nickelback||Nickelback, 39/34 (-5)|
|Used Car Salesmen||Used Car Salesmen, 47/41 (-6)|
|Traffic Jams||Traffic Jams, 47/40 (-7)|
|Hipsters||Hipsters, 45/38 (-7)|
|DMV||DMV, 50/40 (-10)|
|Root Canals||Root Canals, 49/38 (-11)|
|Jury Duty||Jury Duty, 57/35 (-22)|
|Lice||Lice, 54/28 (-26)|
