Donald Trump More Disliked Than Nickelback, Poll Says
A national poll reveals that presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is viewed less favorably than lice, root canals, hipsters, jury duty, the DMV and even Nickelback.
The poll by Public Policy Polling (PPP) shows that Trump is losing to lice by 26 points. In fairness to Trump, lice has an approval rating above 50 percent
MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow reported the poll’s results last night, assuring viewers that it was “real” and not a late April Fool’s joke.

“To be fair, Mr. Trump only loses by single digits to some of these. I mean, he’s running pretty close to Nickelback,” Maddow said. “Overall, this is a list of things you do not really want to be losing to.”
Maddow made sure to offer Trump some “good news,” suggesting that he does beat both cockroaches and hemorrhoids.
“It’s narrow, but a win is a win. Donald Trump is held in higher esteem than hemorrhoids by a margin of six points and he’s held in higher esteem than cockroaches by a margin of four points,” Maddow said before explaining that he actually loses to cockroaches among female voters.
The same poll claims that 65 percent of Trump supporters believe President Obama is a Muslim, 24 percent believe Justice Antonin Scalia was murdered, and seven percent feel Ted Cruz’s father helped with the assassination of JFK.
