Day 3 Week 7 – American’s Leap Of Faith

6 miles with steady peace mile 4 & 5, cool & 58 degree

By now running a marathon is not a leap of faith for me because I have completed more than a dozen races.  I know I can finish the 26.2 miles, but the question is how much time will I take.  The answer will depend on the quality of my training and my fitness level on the race day.

However, back in year 2016 when Donald Trump was elected as the President of the United States, we had no idea how he would perform in the White House.  No clues, no prior data, nothing that would provide the country a peek into the crystal ball.  It was a leap of faith.

Sixteen months later, a Washington Post-ABC News Poll (April 2018) indicates that while majority of Americans dislike Trump as a person, close to half (46%) approve his handling of the economy.  This tells me that the American still trust their political systems and their leap of faith continues.

Do you agree with my observation that the leap of faith continues?
