Donald Trump’s most die-hard fans didn’t blink at his “locker-room talk” about grabbing pussy. They didn’t seem to mind his “alternative facts” when he lied to them. But now he seems to have finally angered them.
A few weeks ago, the Independent Journal Review reported that Donald Trump had dinner at the Trump Hotel in DC, and “The President ordered a well-done steak. An aged New York strip.” But what got the attention of his fans was this: “He ate it with catsup as he always does.”
That was just too much. After an outcry, Public Policy Polling conducted a national poll to see what people thought about this:
And finally we polled on two of the important food debates that have gripped America over the last month. By a 47/32 spread, Americans approve of having pineapple as a pizza topping. But by a 27/56 spread, they disapprove of using ketchup as a condiment on steak. This is a rare issue where even Donald Trump’s own voters abandon him on something- only 34% of them approve of ketchup on steak to 52% who disapprove.
That’s right, even Trump voters don’t like him him slathering ketchup/catsup on his steak. “The distaste cuts not only across party lines, but also gender, race and age. America has spoken.”
Now that Trump has driven a well-done wedge between himself and his fans, what’s next? Indeed, the same poll reveals that even some Trump voters (a healthy number) don’t like Trumpcare either. And they are really starting to dislike the wall (especially if we have to pay for it).
