Reality may be started to permeate the Fox bubble. The new Quinnipiac Poll has Donald’s approval at 36 percent, which is in the range where former Pres. George W. Bush’s approval rating sank and then stalled for the last three years of his second term — making him the most unpopular president in the history of presidential polling.

Donald Trump appears to be giving Bush a run for his money.

The signal that reality is setting in — that Trump voters may finally be starting to realize that they’ve been had — is in the internals. In particular, Donald has seen a ten-point drop in support among white voters with no college degrees, from 57 percent in April to 47 percent now.

According to Quinnipiac, support for Donald is also eroding among independent voters and white men:

  • Negative 29 – 63 percent among independent voters, down from a negative 38 – 56 percent April 19;
  • A split among white voters with no college degree, as 47 percent approve and 46 percent disapprove, compared to a 57 – 38 percent approval April 19;
  • White men go from a 53 – 41 percent approval April 19 to a split today with 48 percent approving and 46 percent disapproving.

The poll found some stability — but no improvement — in polling on Donald’s personal traits:

  • 61 – 33 percent that he is not honest, compared to 58 – 37 percent April 19;
  • 56 – 41 percent that he does not have good leadership skills, little change;
  • 59 – 38 percent that he does not care about average Americans, compared to 57 – 42 percent April 19;
  • 66 – 29 percent that he is not level-headed, compared to 63 – 33 percent last month;
  • 62 – 35 percent that he is a strong person, little change;
  • 56 – 41 percent that he is intelligent, compared to 58 – 38 percent;
  • 64 – 32 percent that he does not share their values, compared to 61 – 35 percent.
