How the race has become totally polarised
The above chart has just been published by the excellent Pew Research and is in many ways a US equivalent to the “good PM” ratings that we see in the UK.
I think these numbers are worrying for both front runners Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Hillary doesn’t have the positive levels that her team would be hoping for while for Trump it us the negative findings that are the most significant.
This comes out at a significant moment just as the first voters in the US start to make their choices on who they would like as their party’s nominees. The Iowa caucuses are a week on Monday with the New Hampshire primary eight days later.
