EDITORIAL

May 13, 2017–It happens more frequently than we want to admit. Someone aces the interview and despite a resume or work history that doesn’t quite fit, you go ahead and make the hire.

Immediately, you notice that something is not quite. What seemed a strength during the interview becomes a liability once the job begins. Your gut begins to wrench, but you disregard the feeling and reassure yourself that in time it will work out.

The truth is that those situations seldom get better. Bad hires are bad hires. While an analysis of where you got it wrong is intellectually an attractive exercise, the reality is that at the moment it doesn’t matter. The best and, usually only, course of action is to cut the losses immediately. I say “usually” because once in a great while the new hire comes to same conclusion and makes the first move, admitting that the new position is not working out for either party.

And so we have Donald Trump.

Whether you agree with his politics or find him a deplorable, being President of the United States is a bad fit for him and for us. The “probationary” period is over. The Constitution , the way the country needs to be governed and his personal style do not mesh. Not now and not ever. The republic is built on a foundation of principles that are not easily changed. His leadership style is built on a dynamic that will not change.

No one need take the blame; no one need accuse the other. It is a bad fit and both parties need to move on. The country with a new leader and Trump back to what he does best outside of the government.

Continuing the pattern of accusations and recriminations is the absolutely wrong course. Admitting that it’s time to hit the reset button is much preferable to the rabbit hole that we are collectively populating.

March 2017 – POV – Political Uncertainty

Marin Magazine

Jim Wood, while it pains me to no end to disagree with your optimistic perspective (POV, “An Optimist’s Outlook,” February) about the presidency of Donald Trump, I must for several reasons. My take is decidedly dystopian. He could, for instance, issue executive orders that could cut off federal funding to all designated sanctuary cities. He will, presumably, nominate someone for the Supreme Court who will tip the balance and become part of a panel that overturns much of the progress that has been made over five decades. If he is to implement his promises for the first 100 days, I would expect that they will include rescinding most, if not all, of President Obama’s executive orders. Bottom line, this is not a new administration, it is a new regime, with all the potential threats that an authoritarian brings to the table. He will not be bored because his ambitions don’t really have much to do with change as much as they do ensuring that he is the constant center of attention.

President-elect’s pledge to ‘drain the swamp’ is all wet

Hey, Trumpkins — have you worked it out yet? Is the truth dawning on you, or are you still in the dark?
See if you can put it all together from the resumes of those in President-elect Donald Trump’s closest political circle so far:

Treasury secretary nominee Steven Mnuchin: Goldman Sachs.
Chief strategist Steve Bannon: Goldman Sachs.
Transition adviser Anthony Scaramucci: Goldman Sachs.
Commerce secretary nominee Wilbur Ross: Rothschild & Co.
Possible budget director Gary Cohn: Goldman Sachs.
Potential secretary of state Mitt RomneyBain Capital.

Trump is just getting started. Check out that “swamp draining.” The whole thing is just draining before our eyes! Take that, Wall Street! Take that, “international financial cabal!”
Trumpkins, you’ve been scammed. There’s a sucker in this game — and it’s you. And by the way, what’s the best-performing stock in the Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, -0.17% since the election?
Goldman Sachs. GS, -1.50%
Yes, really. Shares are up 24%, to $225 from $182 when the market closed on November 8. The next biggest gainer: Wall Street powerhouse JP Morgan Chase JPM, -0.64%
Half of the Dow’s gain since the election, in fact, is due to just those two Wall Street stocks. By contrast, shares of “Main Street” companies Johnson & Johnson JNJ, +0.47% Procter & Gamble PG, +0.42%  and Coca-Cola KO, +0.12%  are down.
According to company documents, the partners at Goldman own 30.65 million shares. Which means that the partners at Goldman Sachs, in total, are $1.3 billion richer than they were on November 8, thanks to Trump’s election.
Remember when Trump and his proxies assailed Hillary Clinton for allegedly being too close to Goldman Sachs because she gave a couple of speeches there? Trump even singled out Goldman CEO Lloyd Blankfein, plus other Jews, in a sinister campaign commercial that inveighed against an “international financial structure” that cheated ordinary American workers. The 2016 election is “a choice between Donald Trump and Goldman Sachs,” insisted NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden earlier this year.

What a number Trump has played on the “poorly educated.” No wonder he said he loves them.
Trumpkins are learning the hard way what happens when you buy an investment scheme from a con-artist. I’ve been writing about scam artists for more than 20 years. They always promise you the moon — that is, until your check clears.
When will these voters get it? Maybe never. Author Maria Konnivoka notes in her book The Confidence Game that many victims refuse to admit they’ve been scammed — no matter what the evidence. Indeed, she says, many just keep coming back for more. This is something I’ll bet Donald Trump knows full well, and which he’s banking on (pun intended) in 2020.

Leaked Research Reveals New Gene, Tentatively Named “Trump ‘16”

October 7, 2016–Researchers have discovered that Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump may be missing the newly discovered “accountability” gene (tentatively named Trump ’16), according to leaked information obtained by fedupwithdonaldtrump.com.

“Rumors of its existence have been around for decades, but until now it had never been ‘seen,’” said Gary Tobin, creator of fedupwithdonaldtrump.com. “The site has attracted thousands of ‘voters’ and more than a few have commented about the possibility of a genetic malady based on their observations of his behavior.”

Tobin said that although many people of have told him that they believe the gene exists and that he has seen mention on the Internet (“trust me on this”), he would not reveal his sources nor could he vouch for the veracity of the research. “But it’s on the minds of many, many people,” he said. He characterized it as a discovery akin to a successful conclusion of the search for cold fusion, teleportation and the cloak of invisibility.

With the emergence of Trump, the trait, heretofore considered an aberration, has attracted the attention of researchers who have concluded that the gene is often replaced and masked by the “I am the only one” gene, which has now emerged as a man-made anomaly.

According to Tobin’s unnamed sources, the “accountability gene” is environmentally influenced by such factors as “the silver spoon in the mouth” trait, which can be identified at birth. Later manifestations include language patterns dominated by “I have been misconstrued” and “none of your business.” Individuals lacking the “accountability” gene are prone to financial bankruptcies, elevated levels of litigation and a proclivity toward unsubstantiated claims about hand and genital size, personal wealth and business accomplishments. They may also exhibit qualities that would make them personally shy from physical confrontations which they are prone to attempt to incite. This characteristic has been tentatively dubbed the “bully coward syndrome.”

Tobin disclaimed any self-interest in the discovery and says that he has had no direct conversation with the scientific community nor has he been able to independently verify its authenticity.

“As I said, many, many people have told me that they believe that it is not a rumor, that it is a fact,” he said.

Trump solidifies position as one issue candidate in continuing poll

Immigration Takes a 5-1 Lead Over

Taxes, Healthcare and Jobs (Combined) By Respondents at fedupwithdonaldtrump.com

San Rafael, CA—July 21, 2016

After 10 months of polling at fedupwithdonaldtrump.com, voters have resoundingly declared that Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump resonates on a single issue, immigration.
Asked to choose among four issues (healthcare, jobs, immigration and taxes), respondents have declared that immigration, by a 5 to 1 margin over the other three (combined), is the single issue with which they identify him.

“Not only is the margin enormous, but it is also trending up,” said Gary Tobin, who has been conducting the polling on his site fedupwithdonaldtrump.com (www.fedupwithdonaldtrump.com) since October of 2015. “Days go by when there isn’t a single respondent who identifies Trump with anything other than immigration.”

Tobin said the response rate of 35 percent of site visitors who vote has remained steady for more than six months. “While I don’t claim that the poll is scientific, the results are remarkably consistent over time.”

Attributes that have been seen as “identifiers” of Trump’s style are clearly delineated by voters. “’Egotistical,’ which is singled out by 20 percent of the voters, continues to attract the most votes and has increased dramatically (10 percent) in the last 30 days. Rounding out the Top 3 are ‘buffoon’ at 14.7 percent and his proclivity to ‘insult people’ at 13.6 percent,” Tobin said.
Tobin, who is self-funding the site through his company (TOBIN & Associates), tallies and logs every vote the old fashioned way (by hand) “lest I be audited.” Unlike Trump, he does not solicit funding on his site “although I have considered going into the baseball cap business with the fedupwithdonaldtrump.com logo which I own.”

San Francisco Chronicle

July 17, 2016

“Donald is most famous for his semi-intelligible speech and his mischievous and temperamental personality. … His anger is a great cause of suffering in his life. On multiple occasions, it has caused him to get in over his head and lose competitions. There are times when he fights to keep his temper in check, and he sometimes succeeds in doing so temporarily, but he always returns to his normal angry self in the end. … He can sometimes come across as a bit of a bully. … His love of bragging often leads him to overestimate his abilities, so that when he sets out to make good on his boasts, he gets in over his head, usually to hilarious effect.”

The Man Who Built a Wall Around Himself

July 9, 2016

For all his rhetoric and 140-character Tweets, Trump is genetically unable to build a coalition with the very people who should be allies. Rather than cementing their opposition to his opponent, he seems bent on alienating them.

For 50 years, he has employed a specific, confrontational behavior. Judging by his serial bankruptcy filings and his 3500 lawsuits, its success rate is only defensible in his own mind.

Increasingly he has become a one-note, one issue candidate who can no longer claim that he is self-funded; who long ago abandoned his pledge to release his tax returns (“none of your business”); who demonstrated his support of veterans by denouncing ex-POWs as “not heroes in his book,” and has self-proclaimed a “very good brain” all the while unknowledgeable about the very Constitution that he wants to enforce.

Renewed Interest in fedupwithdonaldtrump.com As Nomination Process Draws to a Close

Business Wire, May 6, 2016

SAN RAFAEL, Calif. – After six months of polling, the results at fedupwithdonaldtrump.com (www.fedupwithdonaldtrump.com) clearly indicate that the self-proclaimed “presumptive” Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump resonates with voters on only a single issue: immigration, according Gary Tobin, who produces the poll.

“Of four issues measured, interest in his views on immigration outnumber those of his stance on taxes, healthcare and jobs combined by five to one,” Tobin said. “Earlier, there had been a modest amount of feedback on healthcare but that has tailed off significantly. Taxes and jobs went the way Lindsay Graham and Rick Walker early.”

Tobin said that nearly 35 percent of the nearly 5000 who have visited the fedupwithdonaldtrump.com website voted in at least one category.
“I don’t claim to be scientific or that the results are predictive,” he said. “However, it is clear the comments reflect those published at other sites and that a lot of people are looking for another candidate to support.”

The top-rated “attribute” for Trump continues to be that he is “egotistical,” followed closely by those who consider him a “buffoon.” Rounding out the Top 3 is his penchant to “insult people.”
“It’s safe to conclude that there is a large group of voters who adamantly oppose him,” Tobin said. “There is also a very vocal contingent best characterized by the comment ‘I don’t care what he does or says, I am going to vote for him.’”

Tobin, who is self-funding the site, tallies and logs every vote the old fashioned way (by hand) “lest I be audited.” Unlike Trump, he does not solicit funding on his site.
“I did inquire at the company that produces Trump’s ‘Make America Great’ baseball caps about whether it would manufacture ‘fedupwithdonaldtrump.com’ versions. That door has not been closed.”

Latest polling results from fedupwithdonaldtrump.com Indicate voters are beginning to tune him out

Comments, votes reveal growing recognition of Repetitive messaging only resonates with Core supporters

San Rafael, CA—March 17, 2016—There is growing trend among “voters” at fedupwithdonaldtrump.com and from comments at various Internet media sites that indicates that Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has hit a wall with his one-note approach to campaigning, according Gary Tobin, who started the poll in October 2015.

Tobin, who said he monitors the poll results daily, said, “The trend is clear. Across the board, in the polling results and from comments posted variously at Disqus, the Washington Post, Yahoo!, Facebook and fedupwithdonaldtrump.com, more people are tuning him out. While his base is apparently willing to dismiss anything he says or to blame the media, there is a clear indication he is making little headway in the broader electorate.”

Citing poll results that increasingly trend towards describing him as “egotistical and arrogant,” there is little evidence that outside of immigration that he has gained any traction when issues such as job growth, taxes or foreign policy are raised, according to Tobin.

“My caveat is that fedupwithdonaldtrump.com is not a scientific poll,” he said. “It was designed to elicit responses and to identify characteristics and issues that resonate with respondents about Trump. Having said that, I can report that the results are consistent with the comment sites that I monitor. His base is his base, but as the race narrows, he is not attracting supporters from other candidates.

“He plays his audiences well and has mastered the showman’s art of applause lines, but because his rap is repetitive and without much substance, he might become the political version of a one-hit wonder. At this point, the ‘hit’ is ‘we’re going to build a wall…and make America great again.’”

Tobin, who reviews and logs every vote, said that his site had attracted as many “votes” in the first week of February as it did in the entire month of January and that the pace of the past 30 days indicated that it would double again.

Wall Street Is Terrified of President Trump

March 3, 2016, at 8:25 a.m.–The March 1 primaries are history, and whether you think the Republican voting populaceturned it into Stupid Tuesday or Soothsayer Tuesday, you might as well get used to the sound of this phrase, because it’s now a very distinct possibility. Ready?

President Donald J. Trump.

Increasingly it looks like 2016 will give America the most surreal election it’s ever seen: A former first lady married to an impeached ex-president squaring off against a billionaire reality TV show star. But if you’ve got money riding on this – and we’re not talking Las Vegas bets here – you’re likely less concerned with the outcome per se as what it’s going to do to your portfolio.

While Trump may be rich, he’s not going to send you lucre should the market head south. In other words: Don’t expect a big check, but rather a big reality check.

“From an economic and market point of view, a Trump presidency would be a disaster,” says Barry Randall, technology portfolio manager for Covestor and a registered investment adviser in Boston. “But it’s less of one if the Democrats retake the Senate and possibly the House.”

While the scenario might not make sense, “The stock market typically thrives with political deadlock,” Randall says. “But categorically, Wall Street hates uncertainty. Trump defines uncertainty because even he doesn’t seem to know what’s going to come out of his mouth.”

That view gets the vote of Gary Tobin, a former journalist and now the principal of Tobin & Associates in San Rafael, California. “The problem for Wall Street would be that he lacks any particular economic philosophy and is not predictable. He seemingly makes decisions and lays out proposals like a Roomba cleaning a floor: bouncing from one place to another.”

But for now, at least Trump played his Roomba card (or his trump card, if you prefer) mopping the floor in those Super Tuesday primaries. Surely the voters, having spoken, must know something market observers don’t, right?

Not necessarily, especially when it comes to who’s best for business. “We don’t believe that Trump represents something good for America,” says David L. Bahnsen, managing director and partner of HighTower and based in Newport Beach, California. “The question is, which candidate is most likely to deliver a pro-growth policy paradigm?”

And in terms of certain sectors, it doesn’t matter which Super Tuesday big winner, Trump or Hillary Clinton, lands in the White House. “With both candidates, we believe health care and biotech are vulnerable, as they’re making veiled and non-veiled threats to pursue price controls,” Bahnsen says. “With Trump, his economic nativism makes multinational companies who rely on lots of global trade vulnerable … and the Hillary Clinton of 2016 is running as anti-bank, anti-big pharma, and anti-free markets.”

Trump’s business background might make him appear the more preferable choice, but that’s a surface reading at best. “President George W. Bush was also promoted as a successful businessman on his way into office, thanks to his Harvard MBA and his ownership stake in the Texas Rangers baseball team,” Randall says. “But those business skills never seemed to play a role in America’s economic growth.”

“In my view, Wall Street would be very uncomfortable with a Trump victory,” says Paul Bennett, a clinical professor of finance and business economics at Fordham University’s Gabelli School of Business and former chief economist at the New York Stock Exchange.

Bennett sees two downsides to a Trump win. “First, Trump is very unpredictable and would cause problems for the U.S. throughout the world. Second, investors and traders in general would not view Trump as a Wall Street insider, or even a broadly sophisticated businessman, since his most visible business is so idiosyncratic and self-promotional.”

Yet it wouldn’t even take a Trump victory to make markets nervous: just a whiff would be enough. “Markets will be weakened as the probability of Trump victory rises,” Bennett says, noting that Clinton might actually be the preferable candidate on that score. “Hillary would be better for Wall Street because she is not an ideologue and is unlikely to take big steps to rein in Wall Street.”

Indeed, it might be better if Trump’s stump speeches steer from controversy and talk about maintaining the vitality of a stock market that can still see the wreckage of the Great Recession in the rearview mirror. Bennett believes that a Trump victory would have one very weak silver lining: “Export dependent industries might be relatively helped if the U.S. dollar tanks on a Trump victory.”

And as for investors’ concerns abroad, “Trump’s isolationist and protectionist rhetoric would not bode well for other countries’ economies or their capital markets if he were elected,” Randall says.

So in the meantime, you may want to hang on to your long-term investments like a roller-coaster bar – and for those get-rich-quick types, there’s no worse time for market timing than election time.

“The period from the convention through the election will tell us a lot more,” Bahnsen says. “Our opinion is that if this develops into a Hillary versus Trump race, the market will spend the second half of the year pricing in a Hillary victory. If we end up being wrong about that – in other words, if Trump really can beat Hillary – that will be the tale the Street has to price in.”

Fedupwithdonaldtrump.com Polling Reveals Heightened Anger with Candidate

Results Indicate that Public has Reached Tipping Point, Respondents Indicate Growing Frustration, Supporters Grow More Stubborn

San Rafael, CA—February 29, 2016—Respondents to an ongoing survey of voter attitudes are increasingly angry with the antics of Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump, according to new results released by Gary Tobin, creator of the website fedupwithdonaldtrump.com.

Tobin, who monitors results daily, reports that the anger leveled at Trump has turned “remarkably consistent” while support for him shows signs that it has peaked. “In addition to ‘votes’ people who leave comments on the site fall into two categories. One is a burgeoning group that indicates that Trump has stepped over the line from being ‘entertaining’ to simply being a boring bully. The comments from his supporters are best summed up by one who wrote ‘it doesn’t matter what comes out, I’ve made up my mind.’”

Tobin indicated that there has been a “significant increase” in votes that describe Trump as egotistical and a buffoon and hefty drop (50 percent) in those who identify him as a successful businessman.

Survey result highlights:

  • Immigration is the most identified issue associated with Trump (20.3%)
  • Egotistical is the most identified character attribute associated with him (19.4%)
  • Other attributes that resonate about him are buffoon (13.6%), his proclivity for insults (12.8%) and those who characterize him as an idiot (11.%) or arrogant (9.8%).

Respondents can vote in multiple categories.

“What is most telling is the marked increase in negative categories and comments,” Tobin said. “When the polling started in October his ‘negatives’ were many but the comments were relatively benign. In the past two weeks, the comment section has exploded with negative comments. Clearly, a broad range of those who are responding have had it with him.

“At the same time, it is also becoming evident that he has a core group of supporters for whom new revelations or charges will not cause erosion in their support of him. However, the size of that group seems to have leveled off.”

An issue that is beginning to resonate is Trump’s refusal to divulge tax information, Tobin said. “My supposition is that Trump did not expect to be this successful with his campaign. He did not expect to have to reveal his financials because he thought that his campaign would be over before the required filing date. Now that he is still the front-runner he is scrambling to figure out what to do. But people aren’t buying his responses.”

The results also indicate that his detractors are no longer sitting on the sidelines, bemused by his Tweet storms. Tobin said those who found him “entertaining” had dropped to 2%. “Frankly, he does not surround himself with people who can dissuade him from his one-note approach to communications. As a result, he continues on a path that has energized voters who had previously remained silent. ‘Restraint’ is not a word in his vocabulary and his style may have run its course except for his true-believers.”

Tobin said, “as Trump might say, our results are the most scientific and the most accurate anywhere in the world. I am entirely self-funding my activities. It’s an all-American process, relying on the tried and true methods that made America great. We are letting the voters have their say.”

Another Tobin site, www.battleofthebillionaires.com (pitting former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg against Trump), has not reacted to rumors that Bloomberg might run and has not produced a groundswell.

New Results from fedupwithdonaldtrump.com Site Reveal Hardening, Negative Attitudes

Many Question How a “Successful” Businessman Can Declare Bankruptcy Four Times

San Rafael, CA—February 3, 2016—More than four months of continuous polling at the website www.fedupwithdonaldtrump.com reveals that attitudes of responders are hardening and focusing in on four areas, according to Gary Tobin, who set up the site in October 2015.

Tobin, who said he monitors the poll results daily, indicated that there has been a “significant increase” in votes that describe Trump as egotistical and a buffoon and hefty drop (50 percent) in those who identify him as a successful businessman.

“While I do not claim to be George Gallup or Mervyn Field,” Tobin said, “I am confident that the results accurately reflect the attitude of those participating in the polling. The primary vehicles for attracting people to the site have been Facebook and the website itself. Disappointingly, I was informed yesterday by a ‘Happiness Engineer’ at WordPress.com that the site had been blocked from search engines but the situation had now been corrected.”

Tobin said he preferred to think of the problem as technical error and not a conspiracy. “There are plenty enough conspiracy theorists out there, believe me,” he said. “I read their comments every day.”

The results of the Iowa primary have not appreciably changed the tenor of the comments or the volume of the votes, he said. He repeated an earlier disclaimer in today’s announcement. “Our polling is rigorous and not influenced by any candidate, party or political pundit,” said Tobin. “You can trust me. The votes are hand counted.

“As Trump himself might say,” he continued, “our results are the most scientific and the most accurate anywhere in the world. And we don’t buy lists to encourage traffic to the site. It’s an all-American process, relying on the tried and true methods that made America great. We are letting the voters have their say.”

Trump, theorizes Tobin, has met his match in the Republican primary on at least two fronts:

  • He’s not evangelical as Sen. Ted Cruz and
  • He’s not as smooth as Sen. Marco Rubio

“Poll results show that he is perceived as a thin-skinned bully,” said Tobin. “That seems to drive him to Tweet more which costs him support with voters except his base, which is apparently much smaller than he realized.”

Another Tobin site, www.battleofthebillionaires.com (pitting former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg against Trump), has not reacted to rumors that Bloomberg might run and has not produced a groundswell.

www.fedupwithdonaldtrump.com Survey Reflects Changing Sentiment

Open-ended Poll Reveals Consistency In Attitude and Antipathy towards Candidate Running as a “Brand”

San Rafael, CA—October 7, 2015—Results from the continuing survey conducted via the website fedupwithdonaldtrump.com (www.fedupwithdonaldtrump.com) are beginning to verify the weakness of the “polling” numbers for Donald Trump, who is running as a brand and not a candidate for the Republican presidential nomination.

This according to Gary Tobin (www.garytobin.com), who established the site “Our polling is rigorous and not influenced by any candidate, party or political pundit,” said Tobin. “You can trust me on this.”

Tobin said that the results of his first survey press release in August received more than 20,000 hits, citing results from Business Wire (over which the release was distributed) as well as “votes” directed to the site from the Internet, Facebook, Linked and Twitter. Business Wire is owned by Warren Buffet’s Berkshire Hathaway. “You can’t do better than that,” said Tobin.

To invoke statistical verification techniques championed by Trump, Tobin said, “Our results are the most scientific and accurate anywhere in the world.”

Tobin said there was a marked increase in the number of voters who claimed to be “billionaires” and “who noted the attendance of Hillary Clinton” at their wedding. “Who am I to doubt these claims,” said Tobin. “If you trust Don’s claims about his wealth despite evidence to the contrary, you have to believe my numbers.”

People continue to be most troubled his proclivity for personal insult and his stand on immigration issues. They also find him “bombastic” and “egotistical.”

Tobin said he continued to keep personal tabs on the results. “I am taking my cues from Donnie regarding the provision of substance to support claims.”

The site has added a comment section and several new categories for responses. “We are providing our constituency with an alternative place to express their opinions and to voice their concerns,” he said.

Survey “Reveals” Sentiment About Why People Feel the Way They Do About Presumed Presidential Candidate

SAN RAFAEL, Calif., Aug 27, 2015 (BUSINESS WIRE) — Early results from sentiments expressed via the website fedupwithdonaldtrump.com (www.fedupwithdonaldtrump.com) indicate that people are most troubled by the presumed candidate’s proclivity for personal insult and his stand on immigration issues, according Gary Tobin, principal of TOBIN & Associates (www.garytobin.com) which established the website.

“While we must adopt Mr. Trump’s ‘trust me on this’ with regards to survey results,” said Tobin, “clearly the first two weeks of polling indicate that his personal style does not appeal to a ‘silent majority’ not reached by other polls and surveys.”

Tobin declined to reveal raw numbers but said he personally reviewed results and might reveal them at a future date. “I am taking my cues from Mr. Trump regarding providing substance.”

The site allows responders to “self-identify” and to select from several choices regarding which Trump positions most troubled them.

Tobin noted that responses to the fedupwithdonaldtrump.com polling had come primarily from Facebook and LinkedIn users who clicked through to the site. “Fully 75 percent of my voters registered the ‘insult’ and ‘immigration’ tabs as their primary concerns,” Tobin said.

Another noteworthy result, according to Tobin, was that 20 percent of the responders claimed to be “billionaires,” a category that the site also labels with “trust me on this” as a qualifier.

“We are still in the early stages of developing our reporting model,” said Tobin. “In the coming weeks, we will reveal specifics and more information about attitudes.”

To date, Tobin said that like Trump he was self-funding his efforts, although he did not rule out a change in the future. “I am not affiliated with any party, PAC nor do I have ties to dark money,” he said. “However, I do own additional variations of the “fedupwith…” Trump domain names. Surprisingly, the property was cheap and abundantly available.”

Survey “Reveals” Sentiment About Why People Feel the Way They Do About Presumed Presidential Candidate
Published: Aug 27, 2015 6:00 a.m. ET

SAN RAFAEL, Calif., Aug 27, 2015 (BUSINESS WIRE) — Early results from sentiments expressed via the website fedupwithdonaldtrump.com (www.fedupwithdonaldtrump.com) indicate that people are most troubled by the presumed candidate’s proclivity for personal insult and his stand on immigration issues, according Gary Tobin, principal of TOBIN & Associates (www.garytobin.com) which established the website.

“While we must adopt Mr. Trump’s ‘trust me on this’ with regards to survey results,” said Tobin, “clearly the first two weeks of polling indicate that his personal style does not appeal to a ‘silent majority’ not reached by other polls and surveys.”

Tobin declined to reveal raw numbers but said he personally reviewed results and might reveal them at a future date. “I am taking my cues from Mr. Trump regarding providing substance.”

The site allows responders to “self-identify” and to select from several choices regarding which Trump positions most troubled them.

Tobin noted that responses to the fedupwithdonaldtrump.com polling had come primarily from Facebook and LinkedIn users who clicked through to the site. “Fully 75 percent of my voters registered the ‘insult’ and ‘immigration’ tabs as their primary concerns,” Tobin said.

Another noteworthy result, according to Tobin, was that 20 percent of the responders claimed to be “billionaires,” a category that the site also labels with “trust me on this” as a qualifier.

“We are still in the early stages of developing our reporting model,” said Tobin. “In the coming weeks, we will reveal specifics and more information about attitudes.”

To date, Tobin said that like Trump he was self-funding his efforts, although he did not rule out a change in the future. “I am not affiliated with any party, PAC nor do I have ties to dark money,” he said. “However, I do own additional variations of the “fedupwith…” Trump domain names. Surprisingly, the property was cheap and abundantly available.”
