Fox News has now released the additional details from the poll, including several questions asking how well particular words describe president Trump. Let's take a look at the questions and some of the more interesting demographics.
- Presidential: 13% extremely well; 56% not at all. Only 29% of Republicans, 24% of conservatives, 29% of white evangelicals and 30% of Trump voters think this is an apt description.
- Strong leader: 21% extremely well; 48% not at all. For Republicans (R), conservatives (C), white evangelicals (WE) and Trump voters (TV), the 'extremely well' percentages are 43%, 36%, 43% and 30%., respectively.
- Moral leader: 14% extremely well, 55% not at all; 30% (R), 24% (C), 30% (WE) and 31% (TV) think this describes him extremely well.
- Steady leader: 16% extremely well; 53% not at all. 34% (R), 28% (C), 34% (WE) and 35% (TV) put themselves in the 'extremely well' bucket.
Wow. Strong, moral, and steady leader, and never more than 35% of "his" voters think those are really strong descriptions? I thought his fans would rate him higher on these.
- Competent: 21% extremely well, 45% not at all. Here he does better: for his R, C, WE and TV, the 'extremely well' percentages are 42%, 38%, 40% and 44%, respectively.
- Knowledgeable: 16% extremely well, 43% not at all. 31% (R), 27% (C), 34% (WE) and 35% (TV).
- Problem solver: 19% extremely well, 47% not at all. 40% of (R), (WE) and (TV) said 'extremely well', while (C) came in at 35%
- Everyone thinks 'outsider' is an extremely good description; similarly, everyone agrees he says what he thinks.
Not a lot of surprises in that second grouping. He did well with his natural constituencies on both competence and problem-solving, even though he's yet to solve any significant problems legislatively.
The last couple of questions is where things did get interesting.
Fully a third of respondents, 33%, thought the word 'unstable' described Trump extremely well; 11% thought it fit him very well, and another 16% thought this described him somewhat. That's 60% -- 60% -- of survey takers who think the president is unstable to some degree.
This crosses all demographics: men (57%), women (65%), whites (57%), nonwhites (72%), under 45 years old (56%), 45 and older (56%), incomes less than $50K (62%) and $50K and over (61%). Those are pretty astonishing numbers, don't you think?
Even Republicans (30%), Conservatives (39%) and White Evangelicals (41%) fell in line when all categories - extremely well, very well, and somewhat well - were combined; only Trump voters thought this was less true, with a 23% combined score.
The last question asked how well the word 'bully' described the president. 39% thought this fit him extremely well; 14% thought it fit him very well, and 20% thought it fit him somewhat well, for a total of 73%. That's right -- 73% of those surveyed in a Fox News poll think the president is a bully. And that includes a majority of Republicans (51%), conservatives (56%), and white evangelicals (59%) believe this is true. Even 44% of Trump voters find this to be true.
So, let's recap: our president is an unstable, mildly competent, somewhat knowledgeable iffy problem-solving bully, whose leadership style is not strong, steady, moral or presidential.
