This Actually Shows Just How Impressive a Salesman Donald Trump Is

Trust Trump when he says he will convince the American public to support his initiatives. We actually have a new data point to show just what a remarkable salesman Trump is.

Since he began his campaign, his signature issue has been building a wall along the U.S. – Mexico border. He brings it up over and over again.

In 2011 and again in 2015, support and opposition for the wall have just about been even between them. Then Donald Trump made the wall the centerpiece of his campaign and has barnstormed the nation to build the wall. He even went to the border with Mexico to make the point.

Now?

Now the American people oppose building the wall by a twenty point margin. That Trump sure is one heck of a salesman.
