Immigration Takes a 5-1 Lead Over
Taxes, Healthcare and Jobs (Combined)
By Respondents at fedupwithdonaldtrump.com
San Rafael, CA—July 21, 2016—After 10 months of polling at fedupwithdonaldtrump.com, voters have resoundingly declared that Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump resonates on a single issue, immigration.
Asked to choose among four issues (healthcare, jobs, immigration and taxes), respondents have declared that immigration, by a 5 to 1 margin over the other three (combined), is the single issue with which they identify him.
“Not only is the margin enormous, but it is also trending up,” said Gary Tobin, who has been conducting the polling on his site fedupwithdonaldtrump.com (www.fedupwithdonaldtrump.com) since October of 2015. “Days go by when there isn’t a single respondent who identifies Trump with anything other than immigration.”
Tobin said the response rate of 35 percent of site visitors who vote has remained steady for more than six months. “While I don’t claim that the poll is scientific, the results are remarkably consistent over time.”
Attributes that have been seen as “identifiers” of Trump’s style are clearly delineated by voters. “’Egotistical,’ which is singled out by 20 percent of the voters, continues to attract the most votes and has increased dramatically (10 percent) in the last 30 days. Rounding out the Top 3 are ‘buffoon’ at 14.7 percent and his proclivity to ‘insult people’ at 13.6 percent,” Tobin said.
Tobin, who is self-funding the site through his company (TOBIN & Associates), tallies and logs every vote the old fashioned way (by hand) “lest I be audited.” Unlike Trump, he does not solicit funding on his site “although I have considered going into the baseball cap business with the fedupwithdonaldtrump.com logo which I own.”
