Donald Trump maybe happy that he’s won the Presidency…..
He has run on the promise to make America ‘Great Again’…..
But he is a 70 year old businessman….
He’s gonna do things the way he has for decades….
And THAT is producung DAILY stories that project a break from what American President do and how they do it….
And THAT IS UNSETTLING for American’s and others….
Trump is used to running business ventures in private, with his small staff….
THAT is NOT the job he will have in a month….
Trump was NEVER very popular with American’s before…
His numbers are recovering somewhat with Republicans…
But like Hillary Clinton?
Donald Trump has a trust problem….
And THAT will be a problem in his new job….
And it will be wide OUT in the open for as long as he has the job…..
Recent picks for his incoming cabinet isn’t helping those poll numbers at all…
But then Trump doesn’t care about polls does he?
He’s got supporters….(He lost the popular vote by MILLIONS)
Even if it’s less than most Americans….
Mixed perceptions and impressions of Trump extend beyond his transition. The HuffPost Pollster average of Trump’s favorability tilts negative: Forty-six percent favorable, versus 48 percent unfavorable. And in the four most recent surveys, Trump’s unfavorable rating has been 50 percent or greater, including the newest POLITICO/Morning Consult survey.
In that poll, conducted Dec. 8-11, 45 percent of registered voters viewed Trump favorably, and 51 percent had an unfavorable opinion of him. That’s better than Trump’s historically low favorability rating on Election Day, but only modestly.
And resistance to Trump remains strong. The percentage of voters who had a “very unfavorable” opinion of Trump, 39 percent, was much larger than the 26 percent who had a “very favorable” opinion of him.
Similar to the Gallup survey, self-identified Democrats continue to be among the most hostile to Trump. Fully 70 percent of Democrats have a “very unfavorable” impression of Trump in the POLITICO/Morning Consult poll.
Enthusiasm for Trump lags well behind. Only 56 percent of self-identified Republicans — and the same percentage of Trump voters — have a “very favorable” opinion of the president-elect.
That combination — resistant Democrats and unenthusiastic Republicans — has denied Trump the broad popularity past presidents-elect have enjoyed…
Many of Trump’s Cabinet choices have come from the private sector — such as Rex Tillerson, Trump’s pick for secretary of state — and are unknown to most Americans. The only two Cabinet picks with significant public presences are two of Trump’s one-time rivals for the GOP nomination: Energy Secretary-designate Rick Perry and Housing and Urban Development Secretary-designate Ben Carson.
But neither is broadly popular enough to provide Trump with a halo….
The last 3 American President have ALL had drops in their poll numbers after they took the oath of office…
If Trump has the same thing?
How far down can he go?
