New Gallup Poll Reveals the Most UNPOPULAR Candidate by a Wide Margin

According to every national poll, Donald Trump still has a significant lead over Ted Cruz and the rest of the still-crowded GOP field (which hopefully will be thinning soon).

Moreover, the overwhelming narrative among the mainstream media — including FOX News — and the political establishment and elitists in both parties is that Ted Cruz, a constitutional conservative, is the most hated man in America (if not the world).

Shocker, we are being lied to. Lied to by Donald Trump, lied to by FOX News and lied to by the political elites in Washington, D.C.

According to a brand new Gallup poll, bombastic billionaire and reality TV star Donald Trump, who has run the most negative campaign in memory, is easily viewed the most negatively — the most unpopular — viewed the most unfavorably than any current presidential candidate in either party.

A whopping 60% of Americans view Trump unfavorability. Even worse, Trump’s negative image is even worse than that of scandal-plagued corrupt liar Hillary Clinton, who is under investigation by the FBI and is being closely challenged by an old, grouchy admitted anti-freedom socialist, Bernie Sanders.

Hillary Clinton currently has a 52% unfavorability rating in the poll that was taken over the past two weeks (Jan. 14-27).

A high unfavorability rating is seen as a major obstacle in a general election, indicating that a high percentage of voters will never support a candidate with a highly negative image.

Oh, and back to the “hated” Ted Cruz. It turns out that while he may be hated by the entrenched political ruling class, those who have the most to lose under a restoring of constitutional governance where power is taken out of Washington, D.C., and returned to the states and the people, Cruz is viewed negatively by a small percentage (37%) when compared to Trump.

In fact, even dreaded establishment RINO squish Jeb Bush (45%), who has been pummeled by Trump with personal attacks and insults, is even viewed more favorably than Trump.

Gallup reports that Trump’s unfavorability rating is worse than any candidate in either major party going all the way back to 1992, nearly a quarter of a century ago.

Putting Trump’s 60% negative image into perspective, Gallup notes that number is much worse than either John McCain in 2008 (44%) and Mitt Romney (48%). Both went on to lose to Barack Obama, an anti-American Marxist who is easily the worse president in American history at best and an American traitor at worst.

Dr. Ben Carson, a Republican, is viewed the least unfavorably of any presidential candidate (30%). Shockingly, socialist Sanders is in second place (31%), followed by Marco Rubio (33%). Chris Christie came in at 38%, slightly worse than Cruz (37%).

Gallup points out that another billionaire presidential candidate advertised as an “outsider,” Ross Perot, reached 60% in both of his presidential bids. Perot received 19% of the vote in 1992 and only 8% in 1996.

The big news here is that Donald Trump, who repeats over and over that no one likes Ted Cruz, is lying to you. He is projecting. It is Trump who is highly disliked by a wide swath of Americans, not Ted Cruz, or really any other Republican candidate.
