Confidence drops in Trump transition, poll shows

Trump will be sworn in as president in Washington over a weekend that may bring more protesters to the nation's capitol than supporters. Further, an impressive two-thirds (65 percent) of those polled agree that Obama's presidency was a success, with almost half (49 percent) of them saying such success was due to Obama's "personal strengths".

A Gallup survey released Monday found that Trump has by far the lowest favorability ratings of any recent incoming president, with only four in 10 viewing him favorably.

Congressional Republicans continue to work through plans to repeal Obamacare and say they plan to pass a replacement plan at the same time so people don't wake up one morning and discover they're uninsured. "We want to take care of everybody", he said.

Trump's highest marks? On being direct.

That puts him 39 points lower than President Obama's 79 percent favorable rating upon his 2009 swearing-in.

Moreover, 53 percent of Americans believe the country is better off than it was eight years ago, while 42 percent think it's worse off.

While 54 percent of Democrats surveyed say they consider Obama to be one of history's greatest United States presidents, 54 percent of Republicans surveyed say they consider his overall performance to be poor.

US President-elect Donald Trump is headed to the White House with the ignominious recognition as the least popular incoming president in generations. Each protest ranges in size from 50 people to 200,000, however, any protest less than 25 people does not require a permit.

Trump's preparations for office have been mired in controversy, including wastersportsgate after a dossier alleged he had hired prostitutes to perform golden showers on a hotel bed in Moscow. They are rigged just like before'. Former presidents Jimmy Carter, George W. Bush and Bill Clinton will attend, as will Trump's election opponent Hillary Clinton. The Washington Post-ABC poll has a margin of error of 3.5 percentage points.
