This was up from the 71 per cent who supported the significance of Australia’s relationship with the US during the final year of Barack Obama’s presidency.

They might more forthrightly have said, "since the despicable bag of protoplasm took office."

Like the opinion of a bunch of dog crap eaters, I mean Vegemite eaters, matters in the least. Give me a small break.
