Americans With Government Health Plans Most Satisfied
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Americans' satisfaction with the way the healthcare system works for them varies by the type of insurance they have. Satisfaction is highest among those with veterans or military health insurance, Medicare and Medicaid, and is lower among those with employer-paid and self-paid insurance. Americans with no health insurance are least satisfied of all.

KING: The Democratic Party doesn't get why it's so unpopular - NY Daily News
A troubling new poll was just released showing that the Democratic Party is significantly less popular than both Donald Trump and Mike Pence. My gut tells me that Democrats will ignore this poll, or blame it on bad polling, and continue down the same course they are currently on: being funded by lobbyists and the 1%, straddling the fence or outright ignoring many of most inspirational issues of the time, and blaming Bernie Sanders for why they aren’t in power right now.

As a general rule the Democratic Party doesn’t listen well and struggles to hear the truth about itself.

In case you’ve been living under a rock, Republicans now control the House, the Senate, the presidency, and the overwhelming majority of state legislatures and governorships. This new poll from Suffolk University illustrates just how that’s possible. Here are the base results of the poll with favorable/unfavorable ratings.

 Pence: 47%/35%
Trump: 45%/47%
GOP: 37%/48%
Media: 37%/50%
Dem Party: 36%/52%
Hillary: 35%/55%
Congress: 26%/52%
Part of the reason why the Democratic Party is so reviled stems from leaked emails in which former DNC chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz appeared to show favortism to Clinton over Bernie Sanders.

In other words, the Democratic Party has a favorability rating 11 points lower than Pence, nine points lower than Trump, and even one point lower than the GOP.

What Democrats should learn from 2016 – Medium
The most powerful force in American politics today is anti-establishment fury at a system rigged by big corporations, Wall Street, and the super-wealthy.

This is a big reason why Donald Trump won the Republican nomination. It's also why Bernie Sanders took 22 states in the Democratic primaries, including a majority of Democratic primary voters under age 45.

There are no longer "moderates." There's no longer a "center." There's authoritarian populism (Trump) or democratic populism (which had beenBernie's "political revolution," and is now up for grabs).

If Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party don't recognize this realignment, they're in for a rude shock — as, I'm afraid, is the nation. Because Donald Trump does recognize it. His authoritarian ("I' am your voice") populism is premised on it.

Americans’ Distaste For Both Trump And Clinton Is Record-Breaking | FiveThirtyEight
Clinton and Trump are both more strongly disliked than any nominee at this point in the past 10 presidential cycles.

No past candidate comes close to Clinton, and especially Trump, in terms of engendering strong dislike a little more than six months before the election.

But polarization doesn't explain everything. If Trump and Clinton's strongly unfavorable ratings were simply a byproduct of polarized politics, you'd expect them to have high "strongly favorable" ratings too. They don't. You can see this in their net strong favorability ratings (the "strongly favorable" rating minus the "strongly unfavorable" rating):

No major party nominee before Clinton or Trump had a double-digit net negative "strong favorability" rating. Clinton's would be the lowest ever, except for Trump.

Daily chart: How unpopular are Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton? | The Economist
The protracted primaries, and concurrent party sniping, hasn’t helped. Candidates often become more popular once it is clear that they have secured the nomination, as happened with John Kerry in 2004, and their image changes from contender to victor. This is not always the case, however. Mitt Romney was viewed unfavourably throughout most of his run in 2012, getting only a small boost once he won the Republican nomination. In September that year, two months before the election, he still had a negative favourability rating in Gallup polling, the only presidential candidate from either party to gain that distinction at that stage of campaigning since at least 1988. This year will be different by having not one but two unpopular candidates. Just a third of Americans have a favourable view of Donald Trump. Mrs Clinton does little better at 40%, but she might take heart from her husband’s campaign. Bill Clinton had a negative favourability rating throughout the spring and early summer on 1992, but it jumped from 41% to 62% when the Democratic National Convention got under way. She will be looking for a similar fillip, Bernie Sanders permitting, at Philadelphia in July.

"On the basis of publications supporting the hypothesis that student ratings of educators depend largely on personality variables and not educational content, the authors programmed an actor to teach charismatically and non substantively on a topic about which he knew nothing. The authors hypothesized that given a sufficiently impressive lecture paradigm, even experienced educators participating in a new learning experience can be seduced into feeling satisfied that they have learned despite irrelevant, conflicting, and meaningless content conveyed by the lecturer. The hypothesis was supported when 55 subjects responded favorably at the significant level to an eight-item questionnaire concerning their attitudes toward the lecture. The study serves as an example to educators that their effectiveness must be evaluated beyond the satisfaction with which students view them and raises the possibility of training actors to give "legitimate" lectures as an innovative approach toward effective education. The authors conclude by emphasizing that student satisfaction with learning may represent little more than the illusion of having learned."
