Most unpopular new president in 4 decades

But suddenly the polls are rigged, Trump claims.

A poll commissioned by CNN/ORC found that Trump’s popularity had tumbled during the transition period and now stood at just 40 percent. That is a full 44 points lower that Barack Obama’s rating when he became America’s first African American president in January 2009. Other recent presidents also entered office with much stronger numbers. Bill Clinton was sworn in with an approval record of 67 per cent, while his successor, George W Bush, had an approval rating of 61 per cent, despite the disputed nature of the election and the fact it was ultimately decided by the Supreme Court.
