" Sure, Trump is an idiot and does stupid things.

Really, that was your answer, right there.
Not only does he do and say stupid things, he does so in the full glare of the world's press, not just the US press. Do you think Twitter is a US phenomena and that his absurd boasting and lying is not picked up by overseas press? Or perhaps you favor censorship so that only flattering reporting of Trump is allowed overseas?
Trump has Tweeted, among many other things, that his "two greatest assets have been mental stability and being, like, really smart"; that he is a " very stable genius"; and that he has " great and unmatched wisdom." These are his own words to the world, no press, liberal or otherwise required and presumably reflect his judgment of himself.
Clearly you accept him at his word. I, on the other hand, look at his daily pronouncements and actions and see someone who is in some shape or form mentally impaired and totally unfit for purpose. So, apparently, do 64% of the subject polls respondents.
