Public Believes Trump Will Destroy Most Of Obama's Legacy

President Obama has, in my opinion, been a good president -- and has accomplished a remarkable amount of good, in spite of a concerted effort by congressional Republicans to obstruct everything he tried to do. And it looks like a significant majority of Americans agree -- with his current job approval being very high.

But the public also believes Donald Trump, with the help of the GOP-controlled Congress, will destroy most of President Obama's accomplishments. A whopping 83% of the population believes that, while only 12% thinks most of Obama's accomplishments will survive the Trump presidency.

Personally, I have to agree with the 83%. I think this country is in for a dark and very troubling time in the coming few years. The best we can hope for at this point is that Senate Democrats can filibuster away the worst Republicans/Trump atrocities, and we can vote Trump out of office in 2020.

The chart above is from information in a new Rasmussen Poll -- done on January 15th and 16th of a random national sample of 1,000 likely voters, with a margin of error of 3 points.
