One per cent of Americans have never heard of Donald Trump

Donald Trump is everywhere.

If he isn’t sending out his latest tweet storms, his orange hair is clogging up your Facebook feed or he’s mouthing off on TV with yet another nuclear sound bite.

But it turns out "The Donald" hasn’t quite reached total saturation point.

According to the latest National Tracking Poll by Politico, 1 per cent of Americans have never heard of the current President of the United States of America.

A further 1 per cent have never heard of Melania or Ivanka, either.

The poll produces a revealing insight into the administration’s high-profile figures.

For example, 22 per cent of respondents had never heard of Jared Kushner, 21 per cent weren’t familiar with Steve Bannon and 16% weren’t aware of Mike Pence.

The survey asked 1,991 voters from across the country a mixture of economic and cultural backgrounds., with 17 saying they had ‘never heard of’ Donald Trump.

35 per cent of them voted for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 Election, 38 per cent for Trump and 10 per cent for someone else.

But despite the highest percentage voting for Trump, many were dissatisfied with the political climate in its current state.

When asked if things were ‘going in the right direction’ only 38 per cent said "yes" – leaving almost two-thirds believing that Trump is not going about things the best way.

The figures were even smaller when it came to presidential approval – one in five "strongly" approves of the job Trump’s administration is doing, and another one in five "somewhat" approves.

However the majority, albeit a small one, of 38% ‘strongly disapprove’ of what’s going on in the White House at the moment.

When it came down to who would run the country better, votes were split between Democrats and Republicans on differing topics.

Republicans were the trusted party for the economy, jobs, immigration and national security while Democrats came out on top for healthcare, the environment, energy and education.
