Gallup took a poll of average Americans to determine their confidence in Trump’s leadership. The result was unexpected…
If you were to look at the protests in the streets and crying rooms on college campuses, you’d think that Trump was widely despised.
That’s not what Gallup found:
Fifty-one percent of U.S. adults say they are “more confident” in President-elect Donald Trump’s ability to serve as president based on his statements and actions over the past few days. The percentage “more confident” in Trump a few days after his election is similar to ratings when Bill Clinton and George W. Bush won their respective elections in 1992 and 2000.
The fact that similar percentages of Americans say they have more confidence in Trump in the days after his election as did so for Bush and Clinton is notable, given that Trump is much less popular as president-elect than they were. Trump’s favorable rating measured 42% in the Nov. 9-13 survey, compared with Bush’s 59% and Clinton’s 58% after they were elected.
Trump’s victory has triggered a wave of protests across the U.S., with calls to abolish the Electoral College and denunciations of the president-elect’s policies. At the same time, many Trump supporters are excited to see their candidate take the country in a new direction. As it stands now, the overwhelming majority of Trump supporters remain confident in their candidate in the days after the election, while Trump has yet to win over Hillary Clinton’s supporters.
Overall, roughly the same percentage of Americans are “more confident” in Trump’s ability to serve as president based on his recent statements and actions, as was the case with Bush and Bill Clinton after they were elected.
