In a poll conducted by Quinnipiac in January of this year, most Americans regardless of race, age or gender agreed that Donald Trump is not a very good role model for children. However, there was one group of people that disagreed with the majority, and they were, you guessed it, the Republicans.
90% of the voters polled thought that it was “important” for the President of the United States to be someone that the children of the nation could look up to, but only those identifying as Republicans thought the current man holding the role fit the bill. 99% of Democratic voters thought that Trump was not a good role model. As far as the gender divide, 67% of males and 68% of females didn’t see the man in the Oval Office as someone kids should aspire to imitate.
The poll was conducted shortly after the story of Trump’s affair with Stormy Daniels broke. Although the poll is a few months old and a similar, more recent, study has not been released that we can find, his popularity seems to be rising, at least among his base, regardless of his bad behavior and multiple scandals.
