TRENDING DONALD TRUMP-WHAT DO WE THINK?
Donald Trump has been in office now for just over 7 months and in that time he has caused quite a stir both at home and perhaps even more so abroad. Accuracy spoke to the Irish public (a nationally representative sample of 1000 adults) to get their views on how Donald Trump was performing.
- Only 7% of the public agree that Donald Trump is a good President.
In particular, Irish women do not appear to be fans with only 3% holding the view that he is doing a good job.
Furthermore over 1/2 of all adults think Trump will be IMPEACHED in his first term.
More worryingly, with the situation in North Korea becoming more dangerous almost
80% of Irish adults now believe that Trump poses a real risk of STARTING A MILITARY WAR.
So despite Enda Kenny’s visit, and Trump’s favourable remarks towards Ireland, Trump does not appear to have won over the Irish public. We clearly do not see him as an effective President and the majority seem to think his days are numbered.
We also view Trump as somewhat of a “loose cannon” with almost 8 in 10 (79%) of all Irish adults viewing that he poses a real risk of starting a war. Interestingly a higher proportion of women (85%) perceive Trump as a posing a real threat of initiating a military strike.
Let us hope that in this instance, the power of women’s intuition is not correct!
