Sure, I take polls with a grain of salt. But even allowing for a large margin of error it looks like Trump is just not very well liked.

Actually, all of them are better candidates. Just about anyone is a better candidate than Trump.

I don't think "vote for me because the other guy/girl is worse" is a great message.

The polls show that voters disagree with your assessment here. My own view is that on issues, Trump isn't any better than most of these Democrats. Biden is better because at least he supports free trade and voted to reform an entitlement program.

If I didn't, then someone would criticize me for not providing sources.

11) Cutting red tape and regulations to fuel a surging economy

1) People are having to work multiple jobs to make ends meet, the unemployment rate doesn't necessarily point to a healthy economy. Small businesses, which have created 62% of the jobs in this recovery, have actually reduced jobs two of the past three months.

2) I agree with you on this point.

3) By repealing the individual mandate without repealing the employer mandate, Trump accelerated the increase in the cost of health insurance.

4) By keeping interest rates artificially low, the Federal Reserve has encouraged corporations to sell bonds and buy back stock instead of investing in workforce development and productivity. The growth in the stock market, which by the way began under Obama, is a bubble. It has nothing to do with Trump other than he nominated Jerome Powell to the Fed to continue the policies of Janet Yellen, Ben Bernake, and Alan Greenspan.

5) I support big tax cuts, in fact I'd like to repeal the income tax and replace it with a national sales tax. Trump's tax plan had some positive aspects to it, but I don't believe the individual income tax cuts were big enough to really help middle and lower income Americans as well as small businesses.

6) Fewer people have been crossing over the U.S. Mexican border for years, it has nothing to do with Trump.

7) I also agree with you on this point.

8) Trump has accomplished nothing in negotiations with China, other than raising consumer prices and forcing a manufacturing recession, farmers to struggle, and foreign investment in U.S. real estate to decline.

9) Do you mean the trade deal that supports 14 million American jobs?

10) I am against TPP because I think Congress should vote on trade agreements, but I am for free trade.

11) Yes, he did cut some regulations. But not enough and not two big ones, the employer mandate and Dodd-Frank. Again, this economy is stagnant. This is the slowest expansion in recent history.
