New Poll Confirms Trump’s Favorability Surge

Phillip Stucky | Political Reporter

An additional poll has confirmed Republican President-elect Donald Trump’s favorability is surging after the 2016 election.

Trump doesn’t have a majority favorable opinion, but he does now enjoy a 45 percent approval rating, according to a George Washington University poll published Wednesday. That’s up 9 percentage points from the GW University poll taken in mid-October.

Alternatively, only 49 percent view Trump unfavorably, down 12 points from 61 percent in the same time period. Fifty percent of respondents reported they had a more positive view of Trump in the days following the election. Thirty-eight percent of those polled responded that they had a worse opinion of Trump in the days following the election.

Voters also held high hopes for government productivity, with 71 percent of respondents saying they believe Trump will work with Congress to enact change. Sixty percent believe Trump will renegotiate deals like NAFTA.

The latest poll confirms Tuesday’s Morning Consult poll that also revealed Trump’s rise in approval ratings nationwide. The latest poll ran from Nov. 28 through Dec. 1 and included 1,000 registered voters. The poll had a margin of error of 3.1 percentage points in either direction.
