WHat's the problem with learning both systems. I work in healthcare and have to do conversions in my head in a second or less all the time. Seriously, the miles would stay in the USA. Liquid measurement and temperatures could easily been made metric at any time. Someone just has to give to go ahead.

His followers don't trust polls. Their latest thing is, "I wasn't polled, therefore the poll is inaccurate." They actually think that Trump has a 70% approval rating throughout the country and population.
