Trump Is Still The Most Unpopular Pre-Inauguration Prez
Just more evidence that Donald Trump has no mandate. A new Gallup Poll shows that he is, by far, the most unpopular president elected just before the inauguration. Barack Obama, George W. Bush, and Bill Clinton were all viewed favorably by a significant majority of Americans preceding their inaugurations. Donald Trump is viewed unfavorably by a significant majority of the population. This gives him less authority to advance his policies than any of the last three presidents.
These charts are from the Gallup Poll -- done between January 4th and 8th of a random national sample of 1,032 adults, and has a margin of error of 4 points.
