Poll: 73 Percent Want Trump To Be Successful

Despite Donald Trump’s failure to win the popular vote in November’s election, most Americans hope he succeeds as president, a recent poll indicated.

According to Breitbart News, Rasmussen Reports found that 73 percent of those surveyed answered affirmatively when asked whether they wanted to see Trump do well in the White House. Fifty-seven percent of Democrats gave that response, even though a large majority of them voted for Hillary Clinton in the Nov. 8 presidential election. Not as surprisingly, 91 percent of Republican voters said they desired a successful Trump administration.

However, far fewer people apparently think the real-estate mogul will prove to be an effective president. The pollsters reported that just 39 percent of the respondents agreed with the statement that Trump is “more likely to be a success.” Thirty percent predicted he will be a failure.

Rasmussen Reports also noted that “just over half of all voters now view Trump favorably.” That is a dramatic change from last summer, when the Republican presidential nominee had one of highest negative scores for a candidate in the history of polling.

On Jan. 3-4, Rasmussen researchers contacted 1,000 people who usually vote in national elections. The poll had a margin of error of three percentage points.
