France dislikes Trump even more than Putin, so that’s reassuring
Donald Trump is winning again! Congrats, Mr. President!
Tremendous win here for Trump! Beautiful victory. Really good stuff.
The survey, released last week prior to France’s election of Emmanuel Macron (not to be confused with the cookies,) found after polling over 1,000 people between April 28 and May 2, a whopping 82 percent of French voters view Trump unfavorably.
Meanwhile, only 70 percent of voters aren’t too keen on Putin.
Hmm. Okay. Let’s let that really sink in.
So according to this poll, France dislikes the U.S. president more than the man whose country quite possibly rigged the 2016 election and is thus responsible for Trump’s win?
Oy vey. That’s rough.
But hey, in Trump’s defense, Putin has proven himself to be man of compassion who does things like congratulate women on International Women’s Day by posting a photograph of himself looking dead inside. How is Trump supposed to top a sincere gesture like that?
Obama was ranked as the most popular of all the current and former world leaders
Luckily, the poll results revealed other world leaders — such as Chinese President Xi Jinping, who had around 43 percent view him unfavorably, British Prime Minister Theresa May, who had about 40 percent, and German Chancellor Angela Merkel at just 22 percent — were more highly favored amongst the French voters polled.
And like the infamous inauguration photographs, the poll also showed Trump is far more unpopular than former POTUS Barack Obama.
Compared to Trump’s bigly 82 percent rating, only a mere 7 percent of French voters viewed Obama unfavorably. In fact, Obama was ranked as the most popular of all the current and former world leaders included in the study.
As for France, 51 percent of voters viewed recently elected President Macron unfavorably, while 68 percent disliked his opponent Marine Le Pen.
So yeah, Trump’s wildly unpopular … but at least he can brag about being the most unpopular.
