Shitler word cloud

I don't usually do political posts, but I did like this word cloud created from an online poll of NZers asking for a word to sum up the orange waste of skin I call Shitler (I refuse to dignify it with its name).

(Results are again from a UMR online SAYit poll of n=1000 nationally representative New Zealanders conducted between the 28th March and 11th April 2017. The margin of error for a 50% with 95% confidence is +/- 3.1%.)

OK, it's a small sample, but yay for NZers not following the global trend towards fascism. OK, there are a few supporters there like my appallingly right-wing sister, but the majority are pretty damned clear-sighted. Let's hope it's reflected in our September elections.

Let's hope. The current POTUS has made even Bill English look (comparatively) good. Is there no end to his villainy!

I love seeing egg in there. I'm pretty sure it's not referring to the food item.

Hee, I like seeing the words that popped up next to each other: ridiculous wanker, obnoxious chump, disaster muppet, worrying fascist - even "delusional visionary" is a good one, suggesting that his visions are on a different plane of reality.

Do you get the UMR polls ringing you up? I answer them fairly regularly as I probably help to skew their sample of landline-owners a little younger.
