Favorables & unfavorables: Sorry, but the Reagan / Trump comparison has some major flaws

If you pay attention to politics, you’ve probably heard the comparison. Reagan and Trump are both GOP outsiders, they’re both largely disliked by the establishment, they’ve both been derided as ‘unserious,’ and – at this point – they were both languishing under some pretty unpleasant favorability numbers. Trump supporters usually make the argument that, since some of his numbers vaguely resemble those of Reagan in 1980, Trump can easily make up the ground he needs to win in November.

Not to burst anyone’s bubble, but that’s …optimistic.
