6. My only rationale for an approval rating of 42%

is that, by statistical definition, HALF of the nation has an IQ of below 100.

Another major factor comes from the world of developmental psychology. When individuals experience either traumatic or chronic stress, their cognitive abilities decline to an earlier developmental stage, and there are fewer internal resources to access their capabilities for a more advanced, higher level of thinking operations. When stressed, problem solving tends to be dependent on irrational beliefs and emotional leanings. Cognition drops to symbolic thinking, concrete operations, and even the intuitive stage of cognitive development. As a species, we don't do well when under the strain of chronic or traumatic stress. Trumpy gained the support of a good percentage of his fan base by complimenting their chronic stress with fear-based themes. That he doesn't get higher ratings than 42% is amazing.
