” . . . I don’t know exactly how Trump polls in the UK, but I doubt it is very well. I would expect that the mainstream view is that he is a disgusting liar who is causing moral pollution at a serious, dangerous, global scale.”

I’m very wary of making sweeping generalisations about the majority view. If the Brexit vote taught us anything, it’s that the ‘mainstream’ (majority) view might be anything! I hope it’s not so, but it’s entirely possible the mainstream view here and in the US is that Trump is ‘the man’, giving a right good kicking to the liberal elite and telling them like it is.
