Talking How much time might President Trump spend above 50 percent approval?

One of the more remarkable incongruities in American politics is that the United States elected Donald Trump (who ran specifically against the legacy of President Obama) to succeed Obama (who is nearing a 60 percent approval rating). America thinks Obama is doing a great job ó and would like the next president to dismantle the work that he did (or so one might think, given Trumpís initial Cabinet picks). This isnít quite right, of course: Trump lost the popular vote and less than two-thirds of those eligible to vote did so. But, still! Trump won, thanks in part to his ability to consolidate long-wavering Republican support just in time for the election.

Gallupís survey data, though, suggests that Trump is uncommonly unpopular for a president-elect. Thatís in large part because Democrats are particularly sour on him. Only 1 in 10 Democrats view Trump positively, a substantially lower percentage than the number of Republicans who viewed Obama or Bill Clinton positively after their elections ó and only a third of the number of Democrats who viewed George W. Bush positively after the contentious 2000 election.

Perhaps more important over the long term, though, is that independents are also unusually iffy about Trump.

Before we explain why thatís the case, some historical context.
