People’s’ fascination for Donald Trump may be similar to the fascination they hold for Charlie Sheen.
It’s fun to watch an unabashed ego-maniac whether they are winning or not.
The Donald, however, seems to be losing among folks in the financial sector. In a Bloomberg Global Poll of investors, analysts and traders, 68% viewed him as unfavorable. And in the U.S. that figure jumps to 79%.
Poll respondents didn’t hold back anything: “The last thing this country needs is an uber-political, self-serving, egomaniacal media junkie whose all-sizzle-no-steak approach to life and politics only distracts us all from the real issues and problems of our country,” said Douglas Schoninger, president of DJS Capital Management Inc. in New York.

Trump’s re-dredging of the bogus claims that President Obama is not a U.S.-born citizen also seems to have hurt his credibility as a candidate for U.S. president, poll respondents indicated. As did his irrelevant questions about Obama’s grades in college.
Trump took a real beating last month at the White House Correspondent’s Dinner. President Obama mocked him openly on the “birther issue,” after first putting it to rest with a long-form birth certificate from Hawaii – which was a part of the United States at the time of Obama’s birth in case some of you “birthers” didn’t know.
Comedian Seth Meyers topped off the Trump-trashing with this quip:
“Donald Trump has said he’s running for president as a Republican — which is surprising because I thought he was running as a joke.”
