Poll: Public doubts Trump can handle presidency
The numbers are not good news for Donald:
The majority of Americans are skeptical that President-elect Donald Trump has the ability to handle some of his presidential duties, according to a Gallup poll released Monday.
Forty-six percent of poll respondents are confident that Trump can handle an international crisis, while 47 percent believe he will he use military force wisely. Forty-four percent of Americans expressed confidence that Trump will be able to prevent major scandals in his administration.
By comparison, solid majorities were confident in Presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush and Bill Clinton before they took office. At least seven in 10 Americans thought Obama, Bush and Clinton could handle those same duties.
The greatest confidence in Trump comes in his ability to work with Congress and handle economy: 60 percent of Americans believe Trump will work effectively with Congress and 59 percent think he will handle the economy effectively.
Trump’s business background may be bolstering Americans’ relatively positive expectations for his performance on the economy, Gallup noted.
Riiight, because businesses issue their own currency, have standing armies, regulate infrastructure, and maintain nuclear arsenals.
Maybe Gallup should poll on whether voters have the ability to make intelligent decisions.
