More Americans say Trump has presidential qualities: Gallup

More Americans now say President Trump has the personality and leadership qualities a president should have than they did two years ago, according to a new poll.

Forty percent of Americans surveyed in the Gallup poll released Tuesday said that Trump has presidential qualities. That percentage has risen from 33 percent in 2017.

Despite the increase, a majority of respondents — 58 percent — said that Trump lacks those qualities.

Roughly 6 in 10 respondents thought Trump’s predecessors, George W. Bush and Barack Obama, had presidential characteristics at similar points in their presidencies, Gallup noted.

The problem with these stats is the "cajones" factor. Bush and Obama who initiated the apology tour were afraid for their political lives and beholding to special interests. Trump is not tethered by either and is addressing the things that have been broken in this country for many years. It is a bitter pill when addressing immigration, welfare, healthcare, infrastructure, a depleted military machine, foreign interventions re: intel, trade, etc., and a broken economy. Trump has the "cajones" to step up and take the bull by the horns. Never Trumpers don't like it because they have made careers off the less fortunate and debate ad nauseum. MAGA!!!

Kudos, amazing spin job on the data. The headline should read "Abysmal results for Trump on Presidential qualities".

33% to 40% is some sort of victory? It's ATROCIOUS. The majority of Americans know the president is abhorrent, and the numbers show it.

America is split pretty evenly down the middle, liberal and conservative... the same poll had Obama and Bush at 60%... which means that some of the "opposing" side had to agree that these folks had "presidential qualities"

Trump couldn't even get the support of his party!

Laughable, he's a joke... can not wait till 2020... looses by a landslide to whomever ISN'T him.

What are presidential qualities? Taking donor money, getting rich from politics, lying, and not doing what you promised? Just generally screwing Americans over? Then yeah, the Boss doesn't have them.
