Before the election, the POLITICO/Morning Consult poll tagged Donald Trump’s favorability rating at an anemic 37 percent while his unfavorability stood at a staggering 61 percent.
Despite those hurdles, Trump still managed to win the election, and now the American people are giving the president-elect a second look.
So far, many are liking what they see.
Trump’s favorability rating, according to the newest POLITICO/Morning Consult poll of registered voters, has jumped to 46 percent who give him either a favorable or somewhat favorable opinion.
Granted, 46 percent also have a somewhat or very unfavorable opinion of the president-elect, but even this number has dropped 15 points.
According to Morning Consult co-founder and Chief Research Officer Kyle Dropp, “Trump’s favorability among voters has reached new highs since he became president-elect. This honeymoon phase is common for new presidents. For example, Obama saw about a 20 point swing in his favor following the 2008 election.”
The poll, conducted between November 16-18, also shows positive views of Trump’s transition efforts.
“About half say Donald Trump’s presidential transition is as organized or more organized than previous administrations, whereas about one in three describe it as less organized than past transitions,” Dropp told Politico.
According to Politico, “The POLITICO/Morning Consult poll surveyed 1,885 registered voters and has a margin of error of plus or minus 2 percentage points. Thirty-three percent of likely voters self-identified as Democrats, 32 percent as independents and 33 percent as Republicans. Morning Consult is a nonpartisan media and technology company that provides data-driven research and insights on politics, policy and business strategy.”
