Everybody bookmark this shit and we'll come back to it in two years to see how he does...

http://www.cnn.com/2016/11/22/politics/donald-trump-presidency-poll-transition/index.html

(CNN)Two weeks after Election Day, most Americans say President-elect Donald Trump will ultimately do a good job as president, though fewer approve of the way he's handled the transition so far, according to a new CNN/ORC Poll.

A narrow majority (53%), say they think Trump will do a very or fairly good job as president, and 40% say they have a lot of confidence in Trump to deal with the economy, a share that outpaces the percentage who had that much confidence in Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton or Ronald Reagan ahead of their first inaugurations.

That perception comes as majorities think Trump will achieve several of the goals outlined during his campaign as top priorities. Nearly three-quarters say Trump is likely to repeal and replace Obamacare, two-thirds think he will renegotiate NAFTA and 6 in 10 say he'll create good-paying jobs in economically challenged areas. Separately, 63% say they expect the economy to be in good shape a year from now, the highest share to say so since September 2012.

Americans are more divided over whether Trump will "drain the swamp" and reduce the amount of corruption in Washington (51% think that's likely), defeat ISIS (50% see that as likely) or build a wall along the border with Mexico (48% see that as likely).
All told, 66% say a Trump presidency will bring change to the country, but just 43% say it will be change for the better, twenty points below the 63% who thought Obama would bring change for the better in November 2008. That share has dropped precipitously among independents (from 88% for Obama to 60% for Trump), and among Democrats, even when compared to Republican ratings of Obama (49% of Republicans thought Obama would bring change for the better, just 22% of Democrats say that about Trump).


That is, of course, if he's not impeached within the next two years. Considering the fact that the GOPrs probably wouldn't impeach his ass if all he did at the State of the Union address was stand behind the podium and eat a baby, he'll probably be around to compare the numbers.

1. Bookmarked. I started a file on Trump weeks back, storing away articles

and videos, so as to keep a record of his lies, the public's response, how the press responded, etc..

It's already quite full.

I'll print out a lot of it, so the articles won't be lost. Some news sites scrub content.

Thanks!

5. Yep! Been using them that way too.

I've got a stack of snailmail that will go out the day after Thanksgiving. I'm writing both Democrats and Republicans alike.

I've done some emails and phone calls, but everyone is on break now, so it's letter writing time.

3. So now polls are to be trusted, again.

The hypocrisy of the GOP and Trump is sickening!

They act as if some of us have no memories.

Bookmarked your post, it will be interesting to compare.

6. Hmmm.... a favorable news story a day after

He called the media in and supposedly yelled at them.

More fake news, iMO.

Wanna bet there was a similar article for GWB.

What are people basing this on? His prior business successses? His proven track record of working well with others?

I smell bullshit.

I reserve judgement but have low expectations.

8. So the MM is writing stories based off polls without a true polling post mortem? REALLY?!
