It is an old saying that sound something like this: “If you are quite people may think that you are stupid but when you open your mouth everybody gets convinced”. It did not take long for a large majority of Americans to get convinced about the level of intelligence of our accidental president but finally this was metered this week.
Quinnipiac University in Connecticut, the prestigious independent poll institute, did a national poll that asked voters for the first word that comes to mind when they hear the name “Donald Trump.” The survey was conducted between 6 and 11 December among 1,211 voters. Here are the top responses:
1. IDIOT – 53 voters
2. LIAR – 44 voters
3. INCOMPETENT – 36 voters
“In the same open-ended question, allowing for any answer, 35 voters say “leader,” with 35 voters saying “strong,” 26 voters saying “a**hole,” 21 voters saying “great,” 19 voters saying “moron,” 18 voters saying “arrogant” and 17 voters saying “disgusting,” the independent Quinnipiac University Poll finds. Of the 48 words used by five or more voters, 30 words are negative….Other words the pollsters heard more infrequently about Trump—at least five times each—included “businessman,” “jerk,” “powerful” and “evil.”
I guess this poll would not come on the brainwashing machine of Fox News.
