Gallop Polls: Compared to the last three U.S. presidents when they took office, Trump polls far lower in Americans’ confidence levels. At least 7 in 10 Americans were confident in key issues before Barack Obama, George W. Bush and Bill Clinton entered the White House.
Although Trump’s favorability has risen since the election, he still has the lowest favorability rating of any president-elect.
According to the survey, only 46 percent of Americans are confident in his ability to handle an international crisis and that he can use military force wisely. Just 44 percent believe Trump can prevent major scandals in his administration.
