We went back to look at the unfavorable ratings of the major-party candidates from 1992 through the current election. The bottom line is that Trump was elected with a higher unfavorable rating than any candidate at any time during all of these previous election cycles, and that conclusion takes into account the fact that unfavorable ratings tend to rise in the heat of a general election campaign as the barbs, negative ads and heightened partisanship are take us to our highest disapproval levels-Our Country doesn’t need him and Chicago with all it’s problems doesn’t need Trump. We want to send this message to the world! Media-Don’t Miss This!
