Poll: Romney's favorability lower than Trump's

The Hill ^ | March 31, 2016 | Jesse Byrnes 

Mitt Romney's national favorability rating is even lower than Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump's, according to a new poll. The 2012 GOP presidential nominee is viewed favorably by 23 percent of registered voters, according to the left-leaning Public Policy Polling survey released Thursday, while 65 percent view him unfavorably.
Trump is viewed favorably by 29 percent, while 63 percent hold an unfavorable view.
Romney denounced Trump during a major speech earlier this month, calling him a "fraud." He's since campaigned against the businessman.
Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) also faces stark numbers, with 37 percent of those polled approving of his handling of Speaker duties and 44 percent disapproving.
The poll saved its harshest numbers for Congress in general: A whopping 79 percent of voters disapprove of the job Congress is doing, while 13 percent approve.
Democratic presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders both hold double-digit leads over Trump and GOP rival Ted Cruz in hypothetical head-to-head matchups.

Chalk Markers terrorizing college students!

Today, our young people are captives of a system that is turning them into sniveling cowards afraid to debate and face the challenges of the real world
Another week, another campus threatened by the dangerous slogan, “Trump 2016.”
Last week, the students of Emory University in Atlanta needed counseling and mental health evaluations after noticing their campus was polluted by disgusting chalk markings. The offensive words included “Trump,” “Trump 2016,” and “Vote Trump” and they were found on concrete steps and even, heaven forbid, the sidewalk.
Immediately after noticing the horrific chalk graffiti, 50 students demanded a meeting with Jim Wagner, Emory University President, because they felt “genuine concern and pain.” Even worse, Wagner met with the lunatic liberals and promised an “investigation,” which raises the true concern of whether free speech is even allowed on the campus.
