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.

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."
