In a new national Quinnipiac poll released on Tuesday, 50 percent of voters said that they would be embarrassed to have Donald Trump as president. That of course leaves 50 percent of the nation either too apathetic or too stupid to feel shame.

53 percent of voters also said that they don’t believe Trump has a real chance at gaining the presidency, which seems to be true as his net favorability rating nationwide is 39 favorable to 59 unfavorable. Unfavorability generally means that the voter would not be interested in voting for the candidate at all, and that they have an overall unfavorable view of the person. These are not undecided voters who aren’t “sure” about Trump, they are people who know what he is about and have already said “no thanks.”
