    Majority of Young Americans View Trump as Illegitimate[W:2704]

    ... A majority of young adults — 57 percent — see Trump's presidency as illegitimate, including about three-quarters of blacks and large majorities of Latinos and Asians, the GenForward poll found.

    GenForward is a poll of adults age 18 to 30 conducted by the Black Youth Project at the University of Chicago with The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research.

    A slim majority of young whites in the poll, 53 percent, consider Trump a legitimate president, but even among that group 55 percent disapprove of the job he's doing, according to the survey ...

    Who cares? That doesn't change the facts of reality.

    Trump's presidency is not illegitimate. He played by the rules of the game and came out with a win. The fact that people don't like the fact that he won doesn't somehow make his win illegitimate. I'm not saying you have to like Trump or anything (I certainly don't), but his presidency is most definitely legitimate.

    There's no doubt President Obama was born in America, but that didn't stop people from thinking he was illegitimate.

    Those young persons need refresher courses in democratic process. If they had gone and actually voted, they would have had a say. Saying he is illegitimate now only makes them look like political idiots. And complaining loudly shows that one has fallen prey to populist screeching. Maybe they will remember next time that not voting is not only abdicating one's say. It is voting for the one others vote into office.

    Illegitimate is a misnomer. Asshole fits much better.

    Where Trump is right is that the Democrats ran a terrible campaign. It was a no-brainer to win and they lost.

    Key concept = election results matter more than polling subsets of likely non-voters. Not liking election results is fine but not respecting them is anarchy. Perhaps a good poll question would be to ask these "enlightened" folks to name their two US Senators and one House representative and to include that result as well.

    Winning by the rules makes him LEGAL. It does not make him LEGITIMATE which is a personal judgment made in the mind of an American citizen based on more than simple legality.

    Trump's hate on the stump struck a chord with the Right. That is for sure.
