Donald trump is one the least popular who has a lowest approval rating as a president who moved into the Oval Office.
A poll commissioned by CNN/ORC found that Mr Trump’s popularity had tumbled during the transition period and now stood at just 40 per cent. That is a full 44 points lower that Barack Obama’s rating when he became America’s first African American president in January 2009.Other recent presidents also entered office with much stronger numbers. Bill Clinton was sworn in with an approval record of 67 per cent, while his successor, George W Bush, had an approval rating of 61 per cent. Mr Trump has also seen his favourability ratings drop since just after the election. Mr Trump’s continued Twitter attacks against Hillary Clinton, Democratic legislators, media outlets and other public figures may have contributed to the polarisation and prevented some Americans from rallying behind him.
CNN said it believed the reason behind the fall in Mr Trump’s numbers is that the President-elect’s statements and actions since 8 November 2016 had made less confident in his ability to handle the presidency.
