The Trumpability Index: Where a local Donald Trump might get elected. in Europe

Trumpability Inex in European elections

Now, this American president supposedly isn’t the Continent’s favorite cup of tea (or whatever the beverage of European choice is). A Pew Research Center survey found Trump to be “broadly unpopular” worldwide, with 22 percent of those polled trusting him to do the right thing. Barely a fifth of Europeans are confident Trump will do the right thing, and that includes the Trumpophiles in Russia.

But those numbers don’t tell the whole story. If you look at his most recognizable personal characteristics (forceful and charismatic to his backers; arrogant and intolerant to the other side) and at his signature policies (opposed to free trade and open borders for migrants, skeptical on regulation and the nanny state, my-nation-first everything), then Trumpism holds more appeal in the Old World than the European chattering classes think.

To determine just how much appeal Trump might have in 47 European countries, POLITICO introduces the Trumpability Index.

Trump rejects NKorea talks but key nations split on strategy
