By campaigning as the prototypical louse — a misogynistic, racist, xenophobic serial philanderer and pathological liar — he’d already become the most disliked presidential candidate in the history of polling. Now a new poll from PPP finds that he is less popular even than actual head lice, traffic jams, used car salesmen, hipsters, the DMV, jury duty, root canals and even Nickelback.
