Quinnipiac University’s most recent poll mirrors past surveys from the organization in the era of Donald Trump: The president is not very popular.

The pollsters found that only 36 percent of respondents view Trump’s job performance positively, just above the low in Quinnipiac’s polling. Those figures have been lower than the running average of approval polling — Trump’s at 42 percent approval on average — but the general trend has been in line with other pollsters, in that Trump is unusually unpopular.

In this most recent survey, though, Quinnipiac included a less-common question than approval: “What is the first word that comes to mind when you think of Donald Trump?” The results were not generally complimentary.

Helpless

Today is mother’s day, but for one mother I wish it wasn’t. This mother’s daughter took her own life yesterday after months of being cyber bullied. Her daughter was an angel and at 16 she had the whole world in front of her. Now she is gone. Police are trying to piece together what went wrong. There are only 2 forensic people in all of NH that can crack her daughters phone to find out who did this. This was a horrible despicable cyber crime, they will be brought to justice it is a matter of time. All I can do is feel helpless for Hannah.

We as a people need to be better than this.
