Luntz: Trump’s favorable ratings surge, Americans face ‘most optimistic Christmas’ since Obama took office

President-elect Donald Trump continues to see an increase in his favorability ratings, with the biggest surge in presidential popularity since Ronald Reagan.

Pollster Frank Luntz crunched the numbers on Fox News’ “Your World with Neil Cavuto” on Wednesday, reacting to Bloomberg News’ latest national poll of 999 adults which showed Trump’s favorability at 50 percent, up from 33 percent in August.

“I went back and took a look at the change from the moment of election until 30 days from that, and Donald Trump has had the biggest surge in polling in terms of popularity of anyone who has been elected president since Ronald Reagan, including Ronald Reagan,” Luntz said. “It really is significant. That 33 percent to 50 percent is remarkable.”

Although the rating puts him at a lower level than his predecessors one month after the election, Trump reached the 50 percent level despite his start with a much lower favorability rating than those predecessors.

Luntz noted that expectations are at the highest level in 10 years with the nation facing the “most optimistic Christmas” since President Obama assumed office eight years ago.

“There is a fundamental change in the expectations and outcome for the average American that nobody anticipated,” Luntz said, adding that many working class Americans have waited eight years for this.
