Trump Favorability Surges Post-Election

Tyler Durden's picture

What a difference a week makes. The day before the election, Economist/YouGov polls showed 39% Favorable and 60% unfavorable towards Donald Trump (as it was oh-so-obvious that Hillary was about to break that glass ceiling). 9 days later, The Hill reports, Donald Trump's popularity has surged.

Are Americans no longer 'shy' of admitting their support for Trump?

Chart: RealClearPolitics (adjusted)

According to a poll released Monday by Politico and Morning Consult., which confirms the latest post-election poll from Reuters/Ipsos...

Forty-six percent of those polled hold a very or somewhat favorable view of Trump, while 34 percent hold a very unfavorable view of him. Twelve percent hold a somewhat unfavorable view of the president-elect.

Trump’s favorability is up 9 points, while his unfavorability fell from 61 percent to 46 percent since becoming the president-elect.


The transition team's efforts are also getting good reviews, with 19 percent saying it is more organized than that of previous administrations.


However, Kyle Dropp, the cofounder of Morning Consult, did note that "this honeymoon phase in common for new presidents. For example, Obama saw about a 20 point swing in his favor following the 2008 election."

Greatest President Elect in history!

Making Leftists Suicidal Again.

The Trumpening has the potential to start a new age in American politics. Finally ending leftoid hegemony.

Trump, for the most part, is following through with very good people picks and plans. People who believe in the Constitution and want to enforce it are coming on. Of course his favorability will go up.

The potential big problem - we will see, obviously - is that the fake news corporations will continue to rail against Trump. And, more than likely he will get the big crash, created by the Fed, on his watch. It will be interesting times. Fortunately few believe and/or watch the big "news" corporations.

I'm not worried, Trump and Bannon will probably have an idea how to deal with the dishonest MSM.

Yeah but... He LOST the illegal alien/convict/Soros machine, (which is still counting Al Gore votes, 16 years later), 'POPULAR' vote

I hope Trump called some of those media people at the meeting "FAT!" since they are hung up on that from 18 years ago...while they ignore Hillary blatant crime spree for the past 8 years selling America out to the enemy.

The MSM is loosing profits and is history. Their yesterday.

People have wised up and realized that their full of crap.

I wonder if we'll ever get a good estimate of how many dead people and dogs voted for the witch woman.

SeattleBruce's picture

It's about 1.5 Million at least, by last count because you know deep blue city votes keep rolling in, in places where the vote hasn't yet been certified...but it's far from a majority, even so.  Criminals.

sounds like Act 1 opened today.

Do you know how much I hate when people use the -iod ending incorrectly... ALOT!

A leftiod would be something or someone that resembles a policy or person on the left, but is not.

Just like a factoid is something which resembles a fact, but is indeed false. Or an elepsiod visually looks like an elepse, but is not. If you are going to create neologisms then do it right.

 Equally bad is nonplussed, drives me completely insane, it is clearly a compound word and people use it to mean a meaning which is almost a  substitute for its exact antanym.

Within 2 years of assuming office, Trump will prove himelf to be the most loathsome political douche to have ever touched a nuke button you have ever witnessed in your life.  And ZH will be writing apocalyptic bearish articles about him from 2018 onwards.

Thanks for sharing your lame, libtard fantasy, but no thanks. Trump won, and realistically he'll prove to be a far better administrator than O'Bummer, who is like a child compared to Donald.

UncleChopChop's picture

im a bit surprised to say it now, but i think you may prove right. i'm starting to feel like i got suckered in... again.  if any of you haven't seen it yet, check out the netflix series 'black mirror'.. in particular the second episode, with the black guy and the bicycle riding thing. the ending was a rude awakening to me in terms of just how subtle and devious the system is in co-opting all of our best intentions.

Hello Increasingly Nervous Man. Having a nervous breakdown, are we?

Surely, SURELY THIS will be the end of Trump's presidency!

DeadFred's picture

LOL, why do you think we'll still be around in two years? The excrement is still heading for the fan. I'll be glad Trump is there instead of that other thing but it will still be very messy.

If the Republicans can grow some balls, we have a chance  to set this country back on a course away from the progressive dirt road we have been on for 30 years, sorry 60 years and set course for a more stable country and economy. But like I said, the Republicans have to have some balls. We can't "reach across the Isle" or " work together". We won. Let's get to work.

Next thing ya know, Trump'll smash a DC pedophile ring by Christmas.

Prison for some big names.

Women'll vote for him in droves in 2020.  

Son of Loki's picture

Are we allowed to say "Christmas" again on the internet? I thought Hussein bin Bama banned that?


BTW, I am really happy my HOA voted overwhelmingly to decorate with all the gushy Christmas stuff this year throughout the neighborhood. Plus, when strangers like Obama see angels, Christmas trees, etc, they tend to stay away knowing that it's an "infidel" neighborhood.

dexter_morgan's picture

the 'fake news' mantra may be a last ditch effort to put that pedophile stuff back under the rug, if possible. 

probably going to take wikileaks to disclose it so it can't be ignored by MSM any longer, and again vindicating the 'fake news' sites. 

we shall see

I expect for the elitists, satanic bankers to pull the economic rug on Donald to teach the people that outsiders don't belong.  I'm hoping that the DOJ can make that worth the while.

Show your love by going on a spending diet in the Obamaconomy.

Why should you cast your votes for Obama and the Borg by spending money now that Trump has been massively elected?

Feb 1st and beyond, Trump and his policies, and his voters, get  the credit for the discretionary money you could be carelessly spending now.

It's so easy doing nothing, passive resistance, watching the MSM throwing advertisement after advertisement in your face, begging you to buy more Chinacrap, Buy! Buy! Buy!

Sorry Obama, you gave us a dose of "hope" now we can give you a final dose of "Nope".  Except for food and gas, our family buys nothing. Christmas comes in February.

time for some music... actual songs with non x-rated lyrics.

I know some Trump supporters are a bit discouraged by some of his appointments but I reckon the man is a genius and he knows exactly what he is doing.

 BTW Sessions is fucking ruthless - he will want to make a mighty statement by locking up the Clintons as his first order of business LOL!

Foundation:  racketeering, money laundering, brokering pay-to-play for Secy of State.

Secretary of State:  Classified Information;  felony mishandling leading to extensive compromise through unsecured server etc.

Perjury in Congressional testimony?

Pizzagate - a neutron bomb if it proves out.  Perhaps the most epic disgrace in political history.

No wonder they are stirring all shit they can, threatening electoral college delegates, etc.  Fear and desperation.  Please let the hammer come down, (a gavel will do) and let justice be served.

Trump needs to squash all these motherfuckers that are protesting and the people that organize them. It will make his life way easier.

StreetObserver's picture

Nah, they have First Amendment protections, unless they get nasty, then you smash them.

Let the clowns parade their folly, it just reassures the average American that they made the right choice.

Saw some a'hole with a beard, wearing a dress, protesting Trump. Make sure and take pictures of the weirdest freaks and geeks you might see in one of these staged protests. Send the picture to the media or post it here.

thecondor's picture

Ya. I what I should have said was that as soon as one fucking rock hits one cop or one window is broken, they all should be arrested. Bring in buses if you have too. Arrest the organizers as well and all the business that get hurt should sue them personally and their .orgs. Once they have to spend more time in court and spend millions on leal fees, these feces ridden pukes will go away.

Every arrestee gets billed for her prorrated share of vandalism clean up and police costs...hey I like that.
